The use of organic products protects the skin from cancer and other related diseases, Ms Hausat Muntaka, Chief Executive Officer of Hausat Enterprise has stated.
She said organic products were made from natural ingredients which help protect the skin from sun radiation, prevent breakouts, and soothe irritated skin unlike products made from chemicals that caused skin breakouts and irritation.
Ms. Muntaka in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Tema said, “What comes to mind when good health is mentioned is eating a balanced diet, and regular exercises”.
She said the skin absorbed everything fed onto it exposing it to a lot of unnecessary chemicals will eventually had negative effects.
She said it was easy to go to cosmetic shops and choose whatever skincare products, but patrons also need to take a good look at the ingredients of the products.
“Be sure of what you feed your skin, get to learn more about most of the ingredients in your skincare products and make sure they are organic for your own good,” she said.
Ms Muntaka said artificial chemicals could lead to lasting health repercussions since the products were absorbed into skin tissues.
She encouraged the youth to choose organic products to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
