Why Is Natural Skincare For Pregnancy So Important?
Skin absorbs what you put on it
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s also a passageway to your bloodstream – which means it absorbs a high percentage of what you put on it. According to research, people use an estimated average of 12 products a day. Those products can contain up to a staggering 168 different chemicals. Many skincare products contain hormone-altering chemicals, including parabens and phthalates. They might also contain petrochemicals that can clog skin.
Natural skincare can be safer for skin
Using natural skincare can help cut down on the harmful chemicals your skin absorbs. Eleven of our products are certified organic, such as the Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser. This creamy cleanser is completely free of nasties. It’s also dermatologically approved for sensitive skin*.
Almost all our products are certified vegan, like the Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream. This light cream uses organic avocado oil, a fantastic ingredient in skincare for pregnancy that’s full of antioxidants like vitamin A – which is both healing and moisturising.
