Why Should Children Use Organic Skincare?

In today's world, we're increasingly aware of the importance of using natural and organic products. It's no surprise that parents are turning to organic skincare for their children. With their delicate and sensitive skin, children deserve the gentlest care possible. Our range of organic skincare helps explore the reasons why parents should opt for clean products for children.

Gentle and Safe

Compared to adult skin, children’s is more susceptible to harmful ingredients that cause irritation and allergies, due to its thinner nature. Conventional forms of skin care are formulated with harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances that can be damaging towards children’s sensitive skin. Organic skincare products are produced excluding these harmful ingredients. Utilizing organic skincare means implementing nourishing ingredients such as essential oils, plant extracts, and natural butters into your routine. NAJEL uses only pure plant ingredients such as aloe vera, lemon peel, lavender and olive oil,

Chemical-Free Ingredients

The majority of the conventional skincare products lack the rigid set of guidelines that guarantee products are free of many harmful ingredients. These synthetic chemicals are mainly known as parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives. Their role within conventional skincare is to prolong the shelf life of the product, preventing bacterial growth within the product. So introducing toxins to kids at a young age can affect them long-term, as these ingredients have been linked to various health concerns, including hormonal disruption and skin irritation.

Avoiding these chemicals, however, is not as simple as it may seem. The majority of natural skincare products are not truly “natural” since 6 in 10 items labeled “natural” actually contain synthetic materials. Therefore organic skincare products, certified through a rigorous set of regulations, are made with authentically natural and plant-derived ingredients, minimizing the exposure to these harmful chemicals, especially for children.

The Environmental Impact

Organic skincare brands prioritize eco-conscious practices and are certified by bodies like COSMOS and the USDA to guarantee environmentally friendly production and processing. By sustainably sourcing ingredients, minimizing their carbon footprint, and using biodegradable packaging, organic skincare brands convey these environmental themes. By supporting these brands, you contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future, teaching your children the importance of these values.

Healthy Skincare Habits

Introducing organic skincare at an early age instills lifelong habits of taking care of one’s skin. When learning more about organic skincare, it is important to establish the routing of reading labels, understanding the ingredients, and making conscious decisions with that information. And the best way to teach is to role play! We recommend reading labels in front of your children to get them practicing from now. By teaching your children this information at a young age, they will be equipped with the tools to prioritize their well-being and make responsible choices supporting their future health.
