Body Beautiful the Natural and Organic Way

 

by Alice C Doyle

“A woman without paint is like food without salt.”
– Roman philosopher, Plautus

The allure of fragrance and scented potions has been with us since the dawn of civilisation. From the Egyptians to the ancient Greeks, make up and essential oils have been applied for centuries in religious rituals, to enhance beauty, and to promote good health. But let’s not forget that in the pursuit of beauty, such allure has at times taken a uglier form. From the application of toxic compounds such as lead or arsenic to bestow pale skin to the use of crushed copper ores, lead and ash to form Kohl, beauty has at times, come with at an unhealthy cost.

Today the cosmetics industry is worth several billion pounds. But amongst the plethora of lotions, potions, perfumes and cosmetics, how are we to be sure that we are not at risk to ill health as the pale skinned beauties of the past. Daily we apply our chemical cocktails, but do we really know what is in them and more importantly what effect does this chemical overload mean for our bodies? And when we choose an organic product, does this really mean it is organic, a sign of purity, or are we falling foul to false promises in the pursuit of loveliness.
