If your skincare routine stops at organic, it may be time to re-examine the quality of the ingredients you’re feeding your skin, which absorbs about 60% of what you put on it.

We all know to reach for organic ingredients, right? From the produce we eat to the plant-based beauty products we apply, we know the way ingredients are grown has a huge impact on the health of our bodies and our planet. Pesticides and artificial fertilizers have no place on our plates or faces.

But really, you can’t stop at organic. When it comes to the products you put on your skin (the body's largest organ!) you have to ask yourself – just like you probably do with your food – how were the ingredients processed?

If the answer isn’t cold-pressed or raw, you’re not only missing out on vital nutrients that will help nourish and heal your skin, but you’re also likely to be still getting chemicals and additives that can damage it.

Why organic isn’t enough

There are a lot of reasons to choose skincare products formulated with organic ingredients. They’re typically free of the irritating, harsh chemicals found in synthetic products like parabens, fragrances, pesticides and herbicides. And they’re certainly more eco-friendly.

However, an "organic" label doesn’t tell the whole story. Just like with food, the way skincare ingredients are processed matters. Consider the difference between an organic potato and organic potato chips. As a plant moves further away from its natural form, it loses its vital nutrients and is often infused with unwanted additives.

So what should you look for beyond organic? Ingredients in their raw state, or those that have been minimally processed, are more beneficial and less disruptive to your skin and health. Oils should be unrefined. As with cooking oils, refined oils have been altered with harmful chemicals and heat that can cause real damage to your body.

Cold-pressed oils make a BIG difference in skin health 

Cold-pressed oils are unrefined, making them the ideal ingredient for non-toxic products that provide your skin with maximum nourishment and protection. Basically, instead of using heat and chemicals to extract oils from seeds and plants, cold pressing uses a gentler, mechanical process. This keeps the nutrients in while keeping the harmful stuff out.

Cold-pressed oils:

  • Require no chemicals: No solvents or additives are needed to extract the oils, which makes for a cleaner product that is free of irritants and gentler on the skin.

  • Retain vital nutrients: Vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and essential fatty acids often lost in chemical processing are preserved, leading to better hydration, nourishment and protection against environmental stressors.

  • Have a high absorption rate: Lightweight with a smaller molecular structure, cold-pressed oils are more easily absorbed into the skin for deep moisture and long-lasting hydration.

  • Benefit all skin types: There’s a variety of cold-pressed oils available to treat whatever your skin type and condition – from acne-prone to sensitive to mature skin.

Raw ingredients offer maximum nourishment

Like cold-pressed oils, raw ingredients are unrefined and should be considered powerful allies in your beauty routine. They’re botanicals that are kept in their purest form, providing even greater benefits for your skin without any harmful additives.

Some examples of raw materials that can be found in skincare products include:

  • flowers

  • leaves

  • plant extracts

By using raw ingredients, you're able to feed your skin with vitamins and antioxidants that help to heal and regenerate, giving you a healthy glow.

For instance, pure chamomile has been used as a skincare treatment for hundreds of years, dating back to ancient Egypt and Greece. This flower is an incredible anti-inflammatory that can help reduce redness and the signs of aging. It has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antioxidant properties that fight acne and minimize scars.

Using raw chamomile in your skincare routine can help keep your skin healthy, clear and youthful.

Highly-processed ingredients harm the environment

By choosing to use skincare products with organic ingredients, you’re already making a choice to protect our natural ecosystems from the toxins inherent in conventional farming methods. But if those ingredients are then processed with chemicals, the toxins used eventually make their way back into the same environments you’re trying to keep safe.

On the other hand, raw materials and cold-pressed oils are unrefined, so they require no chemical solvents or preservatives and less energy and fossil fuels. Not only are they better for your skin, they’re way better for the planet.
