You’ve probably heard that your skin absorbs 60% of what you put onto it. You might have also heard other statistics explaining that your skin absorbs products anywhere from 26 seconds to 30 minutes of application. While it’s not entirely clear how much or how long it takes for a product to be absorbed into your system, the point is that whatever chemicals you put onto your skin will eventually make their way inside your body. From makeup to nail polish to cleansers, there are ingredients in a lot of beauty products that you may not be aware of but need to avoid!
This is why so many people have made the switch to natural beauty products, which are products with ingredients that naturally occur in the world, such as sodium chloride, also known as salt. Why use harmful ingredients created in laboratories that we can’t even pronounce (yikes)? We only have one body so let’s give it the love it deserves.
Some Common Stereotypes about Natural Beauty Products

Heliotrope SF is all about creating amazing natural beauty products that give you the best bang for your buck! You can count on us to only deliver the best natural ingredients in every product we create. You can find our products on Amazon and on Heliotrope SF online!
