CHOOSING NATURAL

Have you seen the ingredients in your skincare products?

They may contain synthetic irritants and a large amount of chemical endocrine disruptors.

According to the FDA, endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with your hormones, causing them to misfire, become imbalanced, or stop working altogether.

Some chemicals, including synthetic fragrances and colorants, sodium laurel sulfate, or even pesticides used, can cause skin irritation, allergic reaction, yeast infection, and/or UTI.

Prof Ieuan Hughes, emeritus professor of Pediatrics at the University of Cambridge said it best, "...it is possible there are particular individuals who may be more sensitive to the effects of the chemicals, or perhaps are using the products in excess."

NHCO Botanical Bodycare uses effective, natural and certified organic ingredients to create products that do what they were made to do.

And yes, we're able to do this without using chemicals, synthetics,  or preservatives that may irritate your skin, and without making existing conditions worse, or animal product testing. Just because a product is natural does not mean that it good for everyone. Some people's skin is more sensitive than others, and may be susceptible to skin irritation even with completely natural ingredients. As such, NHCO always recommends consulting with your doctor before adopting a new skincare regimen. 

Keep in mind that some natural ingredients, such as lavender and tea tree essential oils contain natural chemicals that may act as endocrine disruptors. With that said, NHCO uses safe and recommended dosages of these essential oils in our formulations.
