Why should I avoid synthetic ingredients in my skincare products?

We have all heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” It is a fairly self-explanatory statement suggesting that what you put in your mouth will contribute, either positively or negatively, towards your health.

Why don’t we say, “You are what you put on your skin”?

Your skin is a big part of your body. In fact, it is our largest organ. What we put onto our bodies is absorbed through our skin and directly into our systems.

Briese Botanicals believe in using honest, gentle and effective natural and organic active ingredients to nourish your skin and our planet.
