Beauty is skin deep’, is just a part of the whole truth. A striking personality is only enhanced when coupled with a flawless and radiant physical appearance. The concept of natural beauty is subjective, but for many it means to look naturally attractive, without putting excessive effort. Millenials are much more aware of what is happening around them than the previous generation. They are more intolerant to the chemical ingredients added to their cosmetic products. Over the years ‘green beauty’ has stolen the thunder from harmful, chemically laden beauty treatments. According to a Harris Poll survey, a whopping 73% of millenial women prefer clean, all natural beauty products.
Growing concern for skin health, environmental issues and animal welfare has pushed millenials to take the natural route. Think about it, If organic and natural ingredients can do wonders for your body when consumed, imagine their benefits when applied on your skin. Millenials are particular about checking the packaging of the products they buy. They are more at ease when they sight natural, recognisable ingredients over complicated harmful chemical compositions.
