It turns out beauty is more than skin deep. The average person slathers nearly 10 different beauty products on his/her body daily — and since our skin acts like a sponge more than a barrier, we absorb approximately 100 chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to. While many of these chemicals are safe in small doses, it is important to keep in mind that the average women uses skincare and wears makeup everyday. (See how a little dab here and there adds up?)
No one really knows how these chemicals in combination affect our bodies over time. Take for example: the infamous chemical — parabens, has the ability to mimic the activity of oestrogen, and oestrogen is commonly associated with breast cancer. In fact, research has shown that parabens have been found present in breast tumors.
Thankfully, not all products are created equal. The Herb Farm, founded by herbalist Lynn Kirkland, is a 100% natural, New Zealand skincare collection that is made on-site at a literal herb farm. What we love about The Herb Farm isn’t just only its handcrafted herb formulations — each product was specially formulated to suit the needs of different skin types, from combination/oily skin to even sensitive (duh, since its 100% natural)!
