Saving Our Environment For Our Future
One of the driving reasons for FGC to exist and produce high quality and environmentally friendly cosmetics has been watching and experiencing the deterioration of biomass and beauty in places we have lived and visited all our lives and that also mean a great deal to the customers of Feel Good Cosmetics.
We are talking abstractly about, Coral Reefs, which are being destroyed at an alarming rate due the the increased pressures of human activity on and around where reefs exists. In fact our brand of bio friendly suncare products (Reef Repair) was built very specifically to help lift some of the pressure off of this extremely sensitive ecosystem and allow it to heal.
How Do brands Like Reef Repair Help The Environment?
Reef Repair suncare brand is attempting to helps coral reefs and the environment in general by being a widely available, reliable and cheap, 100% biodegradable suncream made from all natural products that do not bio-accumulate in plants or animals. We talked about how toxic bio-accumulation is a terrible side effect of our love for cosmetics in a previous article, so we won’t go over it again here.
We also talked about the toxicity of cosmetics which enter our oceans and waterways and then also our reefs. Reef Repair products are made to bio degrade as nature intended it, the elements that make up our suncreams are simply commonly occurring ingredients that the environment and specifically coral reefs will not find harmful in anyway.
So here is the kicker, Reef Repair, helps the environment, by not damaging it in the first place. For every day that the Environment or say a specific area like a frequently visited reef did not need to deal with having bucket loads of harmful chemicals poured into it, it would have that time to rebuild itself and heal.
By using natural products like Reef Repair, you are giving the environment much needed breathing space to heal itself and build up it’s toughness and resistance to greater threats like global temperature increases.
Surely There Must Be Other Ways To Help Our Environment?
Yes, honestly, there a hundreds of things that each of could do daily that would have positive impacts for our environmental future and continued existence as a species on planet Earth. Some are hard like Recycling, some are easy, like not throwing cigarette butts into drains or pouring engine oil into the gutter.
The true heroes of our environment today are people who can change their patterns and thoughts. We all need to stop trusting corporations and big business to keep us and the environment safe, period, drop mic, end of discussion. Big Business cares nothing for the long term overall environmental wealth of the planet, they care about short term value and profit for a small minority, this behavior is annihilating our personal health by destroying where we live at an alarming rate, yet we do very little about it.
Who Says Big Business Doesn’t Care About Me?
Lets play a game of trust, I’m a suncare manufacturer and you are a consumer. I write SPF 50+ on the front of my suncream bottles and I might put in some chemicals that protect your skin from sun damage, I then put it in a supermarket you shop at each week and tell you it’s safe for children. As a suncare manufacturer I know the following things.
- SPF 30 ratings already block 98% of UVB rays
- Active ingredients (the ones that protect you) are expensive
- Many non natural active ingredients are absorbed into the body through the skin causing a range of side effects1
- Children should definitely not be consistently exposed to these chemicals1
As a consumer you know only what I (Big Business) wrote on the bottle you picked up and for some reason you accept it, buy it, and use those products. Big business makes the money, while slowly but surely poisoning you and the environment.
Hopefully our trust game by this point has fallen apart, but for so many people it doesn’t. The ease of which we can buy off the shelf products or remember big brand names is a massive advantage that big brands exploit in us. They know that on a busy day of shopping with the kids there is no way you are going to read articles on the effects of Oxybezone on children, or that you have read why any rating above SPF 30 is literally a marketing gimmick.
Big brands use convenience against you and it works.
It Is Time To Change Your Buying Patterns
Simply put, if you want change, if you want to protect the environment, then you have to sacrifice a little bit of convenience. That is the harsh reality of helping to save planet earth and coral reefs from extinction.
Here at FGC we want to push people’s understanding of what they are buying to help protect the environment and prevent the radically accelerating extinction of mammals, fish, corals and other species.
