There are a wide variety of skin care products on the market today, some of which are synthetic and some of which are natural. While all of these products have the potential to be beneficial, natural products are generally the better choice of the two. Simply put: natural skincare products are better for the environment than are synthetic skincare products. The reasons for this are numerous.
First and foremost, synthetic chemicals have the potential to harm animals and plants with which they come into contact. Should the synthetic chemicals from a synthetic product seep into the ground, they could have dire consequences on surrounding ecosystems.
Secondly, the processes associated with manufacturing traditional skincare products put a great deal of stress on the environment. This is because the extraction of certain ingredients (aluminum, lead, etc.) requires mining. Mining produces a great deal of pollution, ultimately leaving a negative carbon footprint on the environment at large.
Natural skincare products forego the use of such ingredients, and so don’t necessitate mining. And because they use only natural ingredients, they cause no harm to the surrounding plants and animals.
