Although we may not think of our skin as an organ, it is. In fact, it’s the largest organ of our bodies.
Much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream and therefore we need to make sure to use purest, quality skincare products to keep ourselves healthy and our skin glowing. When buying skincare products make sure to actually check what you are buying. Ilus listed couple of important things to check when buying skincare/cosmetic products.
Words Natural and organic
Words “natural” and “organic” are extremely misleading. Companies are supposed to use an organic label only if all ingredients are certified-organic, but they can also say it’s “made with organic” if it contains a minimum of 70 percent certified-organic ingredients. In Australia there are no regulations surrounding the use of the word “natural”. However, it is generally agreed that natural beauty and skin care products should feature at least 90 percent of naturally-derived ingredients and be free from all synthetics. There is no policing on this though, so make sure to check how many percentage natural/organic product really is before purchasing. That might need a bit of research, but hey your skin deserves only the best!
*All JOIK products claiming 100% natural are 100% natural. Everything else in JOIK range is at least 98% natural. Easy as!
Parabens are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. They can be found in shampoos, moisturizers, spray tanning solutions, makeup and toothpaste. Scientist have raised concerns about parabens linking to cancer. As long as scientists are figuring out how harmful parabens really are we recommend you to keep away from them!
Luckily for you- all JOIK products are paraben-free!!
Cruelty free/not tested on animals
Needless to say we should be supporting companies what do not test on animals. And of course JOIK does not test on animals!
Double-check the ingredients before purchasing! Make sure they are quality and necessary ingredients!
