4 Good Reasons to Use Botanicals

You probably have already heard that you should opt for natural skin care products. After all, you don’t want to keep putting a lot of chemicals directly on your skin that you know that will be absorbed by your body. But why are we putting so much emphasis on using only natural skin care products?

What Are Natural Skincare Products?

Some natural skincare products are not all equal. you will find products that say they only include natural ingredients. The truth is – some of the products which don’t use any chemicals in their manufacture could even hurt your overall health. This is because some people don’t use sanitized production methods or a good environment to make the products in, so these products can be toxic to your skin and your health in general.

The truth is that you have heard that some of the chemicals are needed as a way to prevent bacteria and mould forming in the product, to ensure the product can last for a long time on the shelf in perfect condition. However, before big brands used these chemicals, they were still able to produce many skincare and colour makeup products that could last for a very long time. The products we are talking about were products using only natural ingredients. You’ll be delighted to know, these alternatives are still available.

So, when you are looking for a cleanser, a moisturiser or any other beauty product, you should make sure it doesn’t contain any chemicals, and that it is a natural, chemical-free, cruelty-free skincare or colour makeup product. Besides looking at the ingredients, you should also make sure that you are getting an organic and ethical product. This simply means the product you are buying is produced using non-polluting methods that don’t harm the environment. This also applies to the packaging.

Here Are The Main Reasons Why You Should Only Use Natural Botanicals

1: Be Safe Inside And Out:

When you opt for natural skincare products, you can be sure that you will not only look better outside you’ll be better inside as well. As you know, your skin acts as a barrier to prevent toxins from entering your body. And while it tends to perform this task well, there are always chemicals that can find their way in. Some 60% of what we put onto our skin (our largest organ) enters into the body and into the bloodstream and travels around the body entering all our major organs.

2: No Toxic Ingredients:

The reality is that the vast majority of the beauty products that you’ll find on the market include man-made ingredients. This means that they are far more likely to harm your health than pure natural ingredients, (although anyone can have an allergic reaction, even to natural) it is best to try on a small area of skin first. You just need to take one of the chemicals that is found in most beauty products such as parabens out, for it to be safer for you and doesn’t harm you.

In case you don’t know – the main goal of parabens is to increase the shelf life of skincare products. However, there has been a lot of research about these chemicals that show that this chemical can mimic estrogen in our body. An excess of estrogen can not only increase the risk of breast cancer, but it may also affect reproductive functions. In men, this is also a huge problem as it is found in many off the shelf toiletries and could be a reason for men getting the dreaded moobs.

3: Cruelty-Free:

While this is not a new issue, you would be surprised by the number of skincare products on the market that still use animals to test their products, I know this is hard to believe but unfortunately, it is true. I know, it makes you want to cry. 

However, you can take heart that natural skincare companies such as Tropic skincare don’t ever use animals in their testings so you can be confident with these beautiful products that no harm is coming to animals in the testing or making of them.

4: Don’t Hurt The Environment:

We live in a global world and we all want to preserve our planet. So, if you have the option to use a natural skincare product that won’t harm your health and the environment, why should you pick a beauty product that can harm you or indeed both?

One of the easiest ways to discover if the products that you are using are harming the environment is to simply check the labels. If you see a mention of sulfates, for example, then you want to ensure that you don’t use it again. Sulfates, if you are unaware are manufactured from petroleum.

Let me ask you, do you think it is a good idea to cover yourself in a petrol product? Of course not.

Check out the fabulous range of natural, cruelty-free, chemical-free skincare, haircare, and colour makeup products from Tropic Skincare. We are sure you will be delighted, knowing that you can buy with confidence products that won’t harm you, your family, or the environment.

Is Your Shampoo Poisoning Your Drinking Water?

When you are looking for a shampoo, you tend to think about the price and then its fragrance. And then you check if it is the right type of shampoo for your hair type. If everything is according to your budget and needs, you buy it.

However, and while buying a shampoo doesn’t need to be hard, there is another very important aspect that you are missing out when you are buying a new one: to check if the shampoo is natural.

The truth is that most shampoos that you see for sale on the market include a wide range of chemicals that tend to harm not only your hair but your scalp and body as well. So, while it may look nice and smell good, you are actually harming you and harming your overall health at the same time. This is why you should always look for natural haircare instead.

So, when you are looking to buy a natural haircare product no matter if it is a shampoo or a conditioner, you need to realise that you’re doing this not only for you but for the overall environment as well.

Is Your Shampoo Poisoning Your Drinking Water?

One of the things that we would like to point out is that more and more people are already looking for natural haircare products instead of the regular haircare products they used to buy. And while this is a great thing, we believe that it is important to stress out that if you still keep using a chemical-shampoo, then you may be contributing to the contamination of drinking water.

In case you don’t see the connection, just keep reading. You will easily understand how you may be doing this without even knowing it.

One of the ingredients that you can usually find on most shampoos for sale on the market is 1,4-dioxane. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dioxane is classified as a “likely human carcinogen”.

Dioxane is a byproduct of plastic production and it’s very common to find it in shampoos and body washes. However, this ingredient doesn’t readily biodegrade. In fact, it is a contaminant that may not only harm your hair and scalp as it can also contaminate drinking water.

One of the biggest concerns about dioxane is the fact that dioxane discharged from industrial plants seeps into water supplies. And while you may think that there may be a filter you can use, there really isn’t.

What To Do To Help Prevent This

The best thing you can do to prevent this is to use only natural haircare products. The use of these shampoos and conditioners will not only improve your hair and scalp as they won’t put your drinking water in danger. Yes, you are only one person – so help us to get the message out there.

Image _1 - The Increase Of Metrosexual

The Increase in Metrosexual

Women have always been very criticised by their partners for taking so much time to get ready.  No matter if it is in the morning or if they need to get ready for a party, in the old days, men kept rushing them out. However, it seems that times have changed and men are now taking more time to get ready than women. We can even say that we are watching an increase of ‘metrosexual‘.

Just one or two decades ago, it was a bit difficult for men to accept the fact that they could also take care of themselves. After all, it is not just a female thing. And there it began. We started seeing men of all ages starting to take care of their hair at first and then they moved on onto their skin. Then, we started seeing brands noticing the trend since they started offering more and more beauty products specifically designed for men. Even body shaving products for men are available on the market today.

Tropic Skincare identified this trend, and produced a fabuluos range of products for men. It doesn’t mean to say that you won’t be tempted to use them yourself – they are that good!

These beauty habits or grooming regimes vary from men to men, the same as not all women devote the same time to their skin. So if you are with a guy who likes to take care of himself, or you are with a neanderthol who you would like to help discover the modern world, look no further than this excellent range of natural, cruelty free male grooming products.


Guys – here are some tips for you. It’s not all about us ladies you know!

1: Regularly Visit Your Barber:

Your hair needs to be taken care of and this means that besides using natural haircare products, you should also visit your barber on a regular basis. Notice that these visits depend on how you wear your hair. Obviously the ‘baldies’ can take care of their own heads!

2: Discover The Right Scent For You:

One of the things that a lot of men don’t still know is that there is a good scent for everyone and this may mean changing it depending on the season. Notice that you should also choose a natural scent to one that is filled with chemicals.

3: Have A Daily Skincare Routine:

While we are used to seeing skincare routines dedicated exclusively to women, more and more men are creating their own routines as well. While they are obviously different, they should still include exfoliation, cleansing, and moisturising natural beauty products.

4: Shaving Well:

Well, shaving is something all men know how to do. While this is assumed as a fact, it isn’t entirely true. The reality is that even if you already use a barber cream and an aftershave after, you are doing almost everything – but not all. The best way is to ensure that the razor can easily glide, and to do this you should use a shaving oil before. Besides, you should ensure that the blades are soaked in warm water as well to help your pores expand. This will not only decrease the redness but also the irritation.

Try the Tropic Skincare products for men. We think you will be absolutely delighted with this range.  To be well groomed may not put more women in your life – but it just might put more life in your women…:-)

4 Ingredients You Really Need to Avoid

Here is a staggering fact: The average female, using mass-produced products, puts around 90 chemicals on their bodies every morning!

We all know that most beauty products tend to contain some chemicals. After all, they need to hold their properties for a couple of years. This is in case they aren’t immediately bought and used, so they need to contain preservatives etc.

However, what you may not know is that there is a wide range of natural, cruelty-free beauty products that are fully capable of holding their properties without using any chemicals that can hurt your body.

So, when you are trying to continue to maintain a beautiful skin and hair but want to ensure that you are not harming your body at the same time, then you should keep reading. You are about to discover the 4 main beauty ingredients you want to avoid. (Check the products in your bathroom – you might be very surprised!)

1: Parabens:

If you check the labels of your mass produced beauty products, you will probably discover that almost all of them (or even all) contain parabens. Parabens are preservatives that prevent the growth of yeast, mould, and bacteria in beauty products. However, and while this may seem like a good thing, there is also the other side of the coin that you should be aware of.

Parabens include estrogen-mimicking properties which have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.

2: Fragrance:

When you are about to buy a new beauty product, no matter if it is a shampoo, a conditioner or a moisturiser, you probably have the habit of smelling it. After all, you want to ensure that you like the scent since you will be wearing it every day. However, what you may not know is that this smell or fragrance may actually be harming you. The truth is that fragrance mixes have been linked with dermatitis, allergies, respiratory distress, and even effects on the reproductive system.

3: Phthalates:

This is a huge group of chemicals that can be found in nail polish, hair sprays, lotions, and perfumes. The fact is that these chemicals are known to be endocrine disruptors and have been linked to increased risk of breast cancer.

One of the things that you need to be extra careful about these chemicals is that they may not be included directly in the label but the product may still contain it. Many brands opt to include this ingredient within the ‘fragrance’ topic.

4: Formaldehyde:

To prevent bacteria growth, many beauty brands tend to include formaldehyde chemicals on their products. However, what most people don’t know is that The International Agency for Research on Carcinogens (IARC) was deemed as a human carcinogen and has been related to some related cancers. Besides, it is important to know that there are also other less extreme reactions. These may include skin irritations, for example.

The Bottom Line

While you may be worried about the beauty products that you have been using up until now, the truth is that you need to think about both the present and the future. So, in our opinion, you should start replacing those beauty products that you usually use by vegan-friendly products soon as you can.

And the best place to start – where you can be totally confident that you are using natural, chemical free, cruelty free products is at Tropic Skincare. Check it out – explore the fabulous range ,and start to free yourself from that nasty, possibly deadly chemical laden routine that you may be doing on a regular basis.
