Organic beauty is more than skin deep

Anna Louise Batchelor: My first ever organic purchases weren’t food, they were skincare products. Why? At the time I was a student involved with the Women’s Environment Network (WEN). They exposed me to the ugly truth behind mainstream beauty products. Through WEN’s research and campaigning I was quickly educated on the nasties of beauty. I learnt that many mainstream products contain chemicals that can cumulatively lead to an increased incidence of hormone disruption, birth defects, bladder and breast cancer. I decided that something natural, something organic was what I wanted.So off I went on my bike to shop for organic skin care products, returning with a clinking collection of little blue glass bottles.
