Why is natural skincare getting so popular?

Why is natural skincare getting so popular?

There has been an alarming increase of people with skin sensitivities, dermatitis and eczema.  This has led dermatologists to recommend products without harsh preservatives and strong perfumes.  Avoiding products with synthetic chemicals in can benefit the skin and the health and the planet.  Also they are being advised to use products without paraffin or mineral oils in, as these are not only skin sensitizers but have been known to set people on fire when the cream is on their clothes!  One preservative of particular concern to dermatologists is MIT (Methylisothiazolinone).  It has been banned by the EU as from 2017 in cosmetic leave on products, but has yet to be banned in rinse off products.  If you are outside the EU, check the regulations in your country and be very wary of this ingredient.
