Almost 60 per cent of what we use on your skin gets absorbed into the body. That means, when you use beauty and skin care products formulated with harmful, artificial ingredients, they not only cause skin-related issues but also start interfering with the body’s natural detoxification process. In today’s skincare industry, unfortunately, there are a lot of synthetic and harmful ingredients used in skin care products. Most companies use synthetic chemical additives for an easy way to gain profit, and the companies that do use natural ingredients are really expensive.

Recently, a local brand Organikos Natural has introduced first of its kind 100 per cent pure homemade liquid face and body washes. It is offered in four variants: orange, lavender, tea tree and blueberry. They are amazing natural skin cleaners, safe and suitable for all types of skin. Moreover, it does not use any animal fats, parabens, sulfates, harmful chemicals or synthetic materials making it the safest choice for people with all kinds of skin.

It is founded by Karachi-based Sarah Ashraf who was having skin troubles during her stay in Santiago for an assignment in 2016. The changing external climate and use of regular soap compounded Sarah’s skin troubles until her friend, a local resident, directed her to an old hand made soap seller. Sarah selected some of the locally made, all-natural pure Castile soaps for her skin. Happy with her skin after the usage, Sarah discovered a newfound love for making all-natural Castile liquid face and body washes upon her return to Pakistan. At first, Sarah made this face and body washes for family and friends exclusively but now these are available via their Facebook and Instagram pages.

We use a number of harmful chemicals in daily life every day and our skin is no exception. If you are looking for something that will offer your face and body a natural dose of care, these face and body washes are an ideal choice for those looking to adopt a pure and natural lifestyle.
