Have you ever wondered what are the contents of a natural skincare product? We all know that natural skincare products are good for skin and they show extraordinary results but let’s be honest for the sake of our skin: Do we really know the ingredients that go in manufacturing these products? If you really love your skin and want genuine results read on.
The reason I am using the word insider information is that most of the companies do publish the ingredients but do not reveal actual source of their ingredients, why they are used, how they affect our skin, are there any side effects and many more. As a consumer you should do some research on the ingredients and their sources, how a specific ingredient will affect skin.
Following facts will help in your analysis.
Avoid SPF: This might sound controversial because we know for a fact that it’s used in creams and lotions to protect us from sun. But clinical studies have shown that SPF factors are synthetic products that get absorbed in blood via skin and daily use of skincare products with SPF may be dangerous for your skin.
Avoid Fragrances: Again you might wonder why avoid fragrances they have such a soothing affect on senses. That exactly is the point; these fragrances have a soothing affect only on senses and not on skin. These fragrances are usually made up of harmful chemicals that can penetrate deep in your skin and eventually in blood and might cause allergies.
Vitamin E (alpha tocopherol): Benefits of vitamin E for the health of the skin are well proven. Because of its antioxidant activity, vitamin E helps combat the damaging effects of free radicals on your skin. The main cause of free radicals could be any one or all of the following – pollution, UV radiation, poor nutrition, and aging. Many forms of vitamin E that are used in most skincare products are synthetic and are not effective. Choose a product that contains only natural vitamin E and only from the best possible sources. Most other skincare products use a synthetic form of alpha-tocopherol acetate.
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5): Helps repair skin tissue and acts as a natural moisturizer. It also protects the skin naturally against sunburn and enhances the natural tanning process.
Trust me on this; if a natural skincare product company is genuine and stands by its principles and philosophy they will be open on their list of ingredients, where they have procured those ingredients from, what are the effects of those ingredients.
So your next step is to do some research on natural skincare products before you hit the store and buy any branded or non-branded product.
