Why Organic Skincare?


by Corey Radman March 24, 2016

At White & Elm, we are committed to organic ingredients. We are, in fact, working toward USDA organic certification. Why?

We believe that food-grade-preservative, organic products are better for your whole body. Yes, we want your face to be absolutely stunning! But we don't want your lymphatic system, your intestines, or your liver to suffer in the process. In conventional skincare, a whole slew of toxic components are perfectly legal. They include mercury, dioxins, ammonium laurel sulfate, and others. Many of these compounds are easily absorbed by your skin but have no exit route. Thus they collect in your organs, potentially causing health problems.

Your moisturizer shouldn't make you sick. So, natural, organic and non-toxic skincare is our motto... and our promise to you. Because we love every bit of you, even your guts.

How to Find The Perfect SPF: Understanding Sun Protection Factor 101

For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15.  You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen.  Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well.  It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
