The 3 Benefits of Natural Skincare Products
Updated: Nov 17, 2020
Way before the invention of technology and large scale factories, our ancestors relied on naturally procured ingredients to beautify themselves. Rice powder, almond extract, and henna plant paste were all used by women and men in the ancient world for cosmetic purposes.
There’s much to learn from the people who walked the Earth before us. There are some benefits to natural skincare products that you should know about.
No ARTIFICAL Fragrance
A lot of people believe that strong fragrances in skincare products make them desirable, but this couldn’t be further from the truth!
Think back to your favorite scented moisturizer. Sure, it smells like roses. But do you know what combination of chemicals make up that distinct smell that you’re so fond of? The International Fragrance Association has released a ‘transparency list' that includes nearly 3,059 materials, all of which could be found in fragrance compounds. A lot of these chemicals cause health issues, ranging from migraines to gastrointestinal problems when inhaled.
When these harmful chemicals are applied to the skin, they can do more harm than good. Natural skincare products are mostly fragrance-free, and do not cause skin allergies or trouble breathing.
There’s something out there that’s even better than cute packaging—environmentally conscious packaging and products.
Natural skincare companies ensure that their products have minimal impact on the environment. From biodegradable packaging to natural, toxic-free ingredients, you’ll be promoting sustainable production just by using these products. After all, we have to care for the world around us on our journey to having clear, glowing skin.
There’s a stark difference between mass-produced skincare products and ones that are natural—and it’s often in how quickly they work. You’ll find a lot of brands advertising ‘four-week results,' and while this sounds promising, you should be cautious.
Many mainstream skincare products are filled with parabens to extend shelf life, but this can lead to contact dermatitis and other health concerns. Natural skincare products have less abrasive ingredients such as peptides and antioxidants, which help battle skin problems and give you lasting effects.
