Why Everyone’s Choosing Organic and Natural Products!

Why Everyone’s Choosing Organic and Natural Products!

We all want fresh-smelling, clean homes and healthy, clean skin. But it’s no longer a matter of simply picking up whatever’s on the shelf at the shop. Today, Aussie consumers are increasingly focused on health and sustainability, with two-thirds of households already buying organic and natural products. So it’s no surprise that the organic industry accounts for an $851 million contribution to the economy – and it’s still growing! This increased awareness has caused organic and natural personal hygiene and home cleaning products to become incredibly popular. So, with that in mind, we let’s explore why choosing organic and natural products is not only beneficial for our well-being but also for the planet.


  1. You can avoid harmful chemicals

One of the primary advantages of organic and natural products is that they are free from harsh chemicals commonly found in conventional alternatives. Traditional personal hygiene, cleaning, and laundry products often contain synthetic fragrances, sulphates, parabens, and other potentially harmful substances.

What’s more, these chemicals are usually left behind on clothing and surfaces in the form of residue and can be absorbed through the skin or inhaled. This can lead to various health concerns such as skin irritation, eczema, allergies, hormonal disruptions, and even long-term adverse effects. By choosing organic and natural alternatives, we reduce our exposure to these chemicals and promote better overall health.


  1. They are gentle on your skin and body

Organic and natural personal hygiene products are formulated with gentle, plant-based ingredients that are milder on the skin. Organic and natural products often undergo minimal processing, preserving the integrity and potency of their beneficial components.

Natural ingredients like aloe vera, essential oils, and herbal extracts provide nourishment and hydration, promoting healthier skin and hair. They are less likely to cause irritation or dryness, making them suitable for individuals with sensitive skin or allergies.

These ingredients are known for their soothing and rejuvenating properties, helping to also soothe your mind and relax your body to support mental and physical wellness.


  1. You’re supporting the environment

Choosing organic and natural home cleaning products has significant positive implications for the environment. Conventional cleaning products often contain harmful ingredients that can contaminate the air, water, and soil. These chemicals can find their way into aquatic ecosystems, harm wildlife, and contribute to pollution. What’s more, they often have a higher carbon footprint (as they are not locally made), are processed in pollution-causing factories, and even if they do have natural extracts in them, these have usually been unsustainably sourced.

In contrast, organic and natural cleaning products use biodegradable ingredients derived from renewable sources and sustainable farms that are locally-based, ensuring a much smaller ecological footprint. They also tend to be produced using sustainable practices, reducing the carbon emissions associated with their manufacturing.


  1. You are helping to support sustainable agriculture

Organic personal hygiene products often incorporate organic ingredients, which are cultivated without the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

By choosing these products, you can support sustainable agricultural practices that promote soil health, biodiversity, and the well-being of farmers. And as Australia has over 53 million hectares of certified organic farmland (that’s around 70% of the global total), that’s more than worth supporting! Organic farming methods reduce the release of harmful chemicals into the environment and preserve the quality of our ecosystems for future generations!


  1. They’re ethical

Many organic and natural product manufacturers prioritise ethical practices, such as cruelty-free testing and fair-trade sourcing. These companies refrain from testing their products on animals and ensure that the ingredients they use are obtained from suppliers who adhere to ethical labour standards. By choosing these products, you can align yourself with organisations that prioritise animal welfare and social responsibility.

Choosing organic and natural personal hygiene and home cleaning products is a decision that benefits both our personal well-being and the environment. Let's embrace the power of organic and natural products and make a positive impact on our health and the world around us!
