Why use Organic?
The Skin is regarded as the largest organ of the body. Therefore, we must be conscious of what we expose to our skin as it absorbs substances faster than we are able to digest. We should also prioritize skin care and question our daily regimes of use of commercial products which contain harmful toxins.
