Why choosing Ayurvedic skin polishers over chemical based cleansers is better
Has your skin ever felt really clean, smooth, and vibrant only after a face wash? If not, then you are surely one of many using a chemical based cleanser though garbed as Natural or organic for your skin. These liquids/gels or semi-solid face cleansers and polishers along with natural & organic ingredients also do contain chemicals and preservatives like emulsifiers, stabilisers (antimicrobial agents) etc.
So, when you are using a Face cleanser/polisher made with saffron, neem, lemon, rose, or sandalwood and bottled as liquid /gel consistency or semi-solid consistency then you are just not cleaning your face with labelled skin vital nourishing and cleansing ingredients but you unknowingly or out of ignorance also rub chemicals on your face. And because of presence these chemicals & preservatives you could never experience cleansing purely natural and effective.
Were these chemicals & preservatives known in ayurvedic times? Does the original ayurvedic recipe for skin cleansing and polishing have these chemicals & preservatives as commonly found in today’s face cleansers and skin polishers? These liquid/gel face cleanser and semi-solid paste form skin polishers are the inventions of the last couple of decades only, only to benefit the manufacturer to make products cost-effective with growing competition and of course convenience to consumers. Convenience, in terms of break-free plastic bottles and long shelf life.
