Sustainable products, natural products, green products and so on. Everything to maintain the world around us AND ourselves a little better. More of these fantastic products are coming onto the market at a breakneck pace and that's a good thing. It is therefore quite possible that you have already seen the termclean beauty pass by. What exactly is clean beauty? What are the benefits of clean beauty? These are a number of questions that we will answer for you.
What do we mean by clean beauty?To put everything in a row and to avoid confusion, we must clarify what the difference is with clean beauty and all the above-mentioned types. On the one hand it is the same as sustainable, green and much more, but on the other hand it is not. The thing is, clean beauty products are made as pure as possible. Which means that the use of harmful substances has been minimized, but it is also not always completely natural. There are also 100% natural beauty products that can contain harmful ingredients, but we will go into that in a bit more detail. Clean beauty products are formulated in such a way that they do not harm the environment, but also do not harm our skin. Best of/for both worlds!
What are the benefits of clean beauty?There are skincare products that are full of harmful ingredients, while as a layman you can't even realize that. Difficult names, weird abbreviations, it's so vague that you often think "it's all right". I want to have a heartfelt word with you about that. HELLO!! You want to know what you put on your face, don't you? Your skin and health are precious and you should take care of them with love at all times! So time for a lesson. Fortunately, we can list a number of harmful substances for you, so that you know what to avoid. You will therefore never encounter these culprits in clean beauty products.
Parabens are chemical substances. Doesn't sound very attractive to incorporate into your skincare routine, does it? Parabens are in most cases used as a preservative, which gives the skincare products a longer shelf life. For example, they inhibit the growth of fungi or bacteria. There are many doubts about the harmfulness of parabens, but they are suspected of disrupting the hormonal balance. And when in doubt........exactly! More's products are also paraben-free, such as our Castor oil.< br>
Another abbreviation that doesn't make you much wiser. The full name is also not very easy, namely Sodium lauryl sulphate. Especially with sensitive skin you should stay far away from these ingredients. SLS is known to be very annoying in your home. It removes dirt and grease, but is also used for this reason in detergent or shower gel. One of the advantages of clean beauty products is that they do not contain harmful and irritating SLS.
MicroplasticWhat is often used as a cheap filler and actually has a useless effect, apart from being harmful to the environment and our skin, is microplastic. Can you picture it already? Miniscule pieces of plastic in your day cream? No thank you! Microplastic can be hidden in your body scrub, which therefore gets that scrub effect. As soon as you rinse the scrub off while showering and the plastic particles end up in the sewer, it cannot be filtered. For example, it is harmful not only to us, but also to the environment and animals.
How do you recognize clean beauty products?Clean beauty products do not have a clear stamp by which you can recognize them. At least you know that there is as little craziness as possible, aka harmful substances in it. When you see a laundry list of ingredients that you can't pronounce or that start with methyl-, ethyl-, etc., you know to be wary. Clean beauty is often packaged in organic packaging such as paper. Disposable materials are of course not done.
With More products we try to make it even easier for you. This is how we indicate which substances we do NOT contain in our products. For example, you can see in a store that a product does not contain any harmful substances such as silicones, PEGs and SLS. Just look at our sustainable hemp seed oil. A perfect example of clean beauty!
