Potential allergens are found among both chemical and natural components. Many plant extracts do cause allergies, irritate the skin, clog pores, destroy collagen fibers, and increase sensitivity to the sun. These include essential oils, rose, mint, angelica, spices, citrus, eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary, lemongrass, ylang-ylang, oak bark and spruce needles, sandalwood. However, do not throw your favorite organic cream, if it contains any of these extracts. All individually, and if you do not notice unpleasant symptoms, continue to use.
Also, some manufacturers of "green" cosmetics claim that all other plant extracts contain pesticides. And pesticides, in turn, penetrate the skin, causing harm to it. In fact, after processing and sterilization, there is not a trace of fertilizer on the plants. Therefore, the main thing is that any product, organic or not, meets quality standards.
