It?s a centuries-old farming method that is usually associated with making wine or growing food. So why is biodynamic farming being touted as the next big thing in skincare?
This method of farming was made famous in the 1920s by an Austrian philosopher, Dr. Rudolph Steiner. A visionary man, Dr. Steiner was concerned about the abundance of chemicals used in conventional farming ? exactly why many of us prefer to eat organic today. Along with the toxins that go into the plant, pesticides also affect soil quality by draining it of nutrients, and affect biodiversity by unnecessarily killing animal life. There must be a better way, he thought. So ? working with scientists ? he set out to find it.
Biodynamic farming was born
This method of farming is in essence organic farming that nurtures biodiversity, and is influenced by astronomy. It?s about working with nature, not against it, and having minimum impact on the land. It?s all about nourishing the soil with natural fertilizers (minerals and herbs) to boost its quality and create a healthy biodiversity. Plants are grown and harvested in accordance with the lunar cycles. Why? Because when the moon is in ascendant, a plant’s sap rises, and when it?s in descendant, there is more vitality in the roots.
How biodynamic farming can boost your beauty regime
It?s simple, really. Just as you are feeding your body with nutrient-rich organic produce, you can also feed your skin with this vital energy. Many skincare companies, including Breathe Skin Therapy, believe that it?s not enough to simply feature organic ingredients in their products. The cultivation of pure and natural ingredients goes right to the soil. Next, the way in which herbs and plants are grown, means that the herbal and oil extractions are so much more potent, making skincare blends easier to absorb in the skin. In short: you get no unnecessary chemicals, only pure goodness.
Many celebrities have discovered the magical benefits of biodynamic skincare to revitalize their skin. These products are particularly great for those with sensitive or problem skin or those who might be allergic to synthetic ingredients. Some people are attracted to these products out of respect for the earth and because they choose to use organic, sustainable products.
