Why you should invest in organic bath products

Date Posted:9 November 2021 

Relaxing in a hot bath infused with beautiful aromas is the perfect way to end a stressful day. Using natural and organic bath products infused with therapeutic oils and mineral salts can help to calm the mind, ease tension and relieve tired muscles. While you soak, your skin absorbs the contents surrounding you, which is why it is so important to use natural bath products.

 

What is organic body care?

Organic body care is products that have been made with organic ingredients – ingredients grown organically without the use of artificial fertilisers or synthetic chemicals. Organic farming does not use genetically modified foods, growth promoters or hormones. Usually, a government-approved certifier inspects a farm to ensure it meets ‘organic’ labelling standards. Organic body care ingredients tend to be higher in nutrients and free of chemical residues that can harm or irritate the skin. There are many benefits to using organic bath products and body care. Organic body care doesn’t contain harsh chemicals, and it tends to avoid cheap fillers. Meaning, organic body care products are naturally non-irritating and more effective. Plus, they have higher doses of all-natural skin-improving ingredients, which means they’ll improve your skin faster. Our body absorbs 60 per cent of the ingredients we put onto our skin which means it’s important we use products that are as good for our skin as they are for our internal health. Because organic body care doesn’t contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as phthalates, sodium lauryl sulphate and parabens, it won’t disrupt your body’s natural functioning. Lastly, the farming processes for organic products are better for the environment – there is less risk of chemicals damaging our natural soils and waterways. If you have a bath, this can be a great way to take some extra time and care with your skin. Luckily there are lots of organic bath products out there that will help you take care of your skin the natural way.    
 

What’s a good bath routine?

A bath routine is a good chance to practice self-love and self-care while spending some extra time on your skin. For this reason, bath time is a great chance to do those extra steps like exfoliation and shaving (if you choose to do so).

 

Exfoliate

We lose about 500 million skin cells every day, and they can build up quickly, which is why exfoliating is a crucial part of any skincare routine. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It helps to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy, clean and fresh. You should be exfoliating your face and body regularly, even when not taking a bath. But bath time is a great chance to do a deeper exfoliation routine. You can use a physical exfoliating tool or a body scrub to exfoliate. A body scrub is considered a physical exfoliant as it contains little granules like sugar to remove dead skin cells. There are many benefits to using a body scrub. A body scrub will unclog pores and prevent things like in-grown hairs, leaving your skin looking fresh and healthy.

A body brush is what’s commonly used to exfoliate without an exfoliating product. The act of dry body brushing involves using a natural bristle brush, and exactly as the name suggests, it is brushing the body. Apply medium pressure and use circular movements over the skin, starting at your extremities and working your way towards your heart. By doing this, you stimulate lymphatic flow which helps to improve circulation and removal of toxins. Many people use a body brush to reduce cellulite. If used daily, the improved circulation as a result of dry body brushing can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

 

Cleanse

Of course, one of the main reasons for taking a bath is to clean the skin. As such, you might be wondering: which body wash is best without chemicals? It’s important to use gentle, natural and chemical-free body washes both in the shower and the bath as this is safer for your skin and the planet. An organic and natural body wash will use plant oils and extracts to cleanse, without the use of harsh soaps. Our range of natural body wash has everything from solid body wash bars to certified organic liquid body wash. Just always be sure your body wash is free from SLS, parabens, chemical fragrances and triclosan.

 

Nourish

The best bit about taking a bath is the natural bath products you can add to the water for a more nourishing and rejuvenating experience. Bath salts are one of the most popular bath products. If you’re looking for bath salts Australia that are as good for your skin as your mind, then we suggest the Summer Salt Body Bath Soaks. These bath soaks are some of the best bath salts Australia with salts, clays, oils and vitamins that detox and revive the skin – available in three scents. If you’re looking for bath salts Australia that are more remedial then you’ll want to try magnesium bath salts. Magnesium is an important mineral in our body that’s involved in over 300 bodily reactions. Amazing Oils’ magnesium bath salts will help soothe and treat skin conditions as well as help aching or sore muscles. Magnesium bath salts are also an effective remedy for destressing and aiding in the management of anxiety.


Moisturise

The last but certainly not least important step in any good baht routine is moisturising. Too often, we remember to regularly moisturise our face but not the skin on our body. Body lotion is one of the best and most popular choices for moisturising the body. Body lotion tends to have a lightweight consistency that makes it easy to apply before getting dressed. There are many different types of body lotion to suit your unique skin needs. But generally, the best body lotion is one that uses natural plant oils, butter and emulsifiers without added nasties like parabens, chemical fragrances and fillers. If you have ageing or particularly dry skin, then we recommend using body oil. Even if you don’t have dry or ageing skin, nourishing body oil is also great after that weekly bath to give your skin that extra hydrating boost. Body oil can be anything from unrefined coconut oil out of the jar to an expertly formulated body oil. Jojoba oil is a great body oil option as it’s suitable for all skin types and is lightweight.


What baby bath products do I need?

Bathing is the only option for little ones when they’re not old enough to shower. Much like the adult bath essentials, you’ll need gentle baby-approved bath products. Our baby wash range has plenty of all-natural and organic baby body washes and shampoos that are safe to use on the soft, sensitive skin and scalp of your little one. It’s also great to add a bit of natural, plant-based baby oil to the bathwater to protect and nourish the naturally dry and sensitive baby skin. You can also use baby oil for an after-bath time massage that helps nourish and strengthen the baby’s skin, which is also great for bonding.
