The term natural gets thrown around a lot within the beauty industry. It can be tricky to make sense of just what it means. Natural skincare products are generally chemical and synthetic ingredient free. Many of these products also aim to use ethically sourced and environmentally friendly ingredients.
As natural isn't a regulated term across the beauty industry it's a good idea to familiarise yourself with the ingredients. We have popped together a handy list of ingredients we avoid to help make it easier for you.
Natural Skincare Benefits
Most natural skincare products are considered non toxic as they avoid the use of synthetic chemicals and instead rely on plant-based ingredients. These elements are rich in antioxidants and loaded with nutrients to promote healthy skin. Natural skincare is gentle on your skin and suitable for all skin types. A lot of these ingredients have been used throughout history by various peoples for many conditions and ailments.
If you have sensitive skin you are less likely to be negatively impacted by natural skincare. However, there are potentials for some allergic reactions to occur so be sure to read the ingredients for anything that may cause you to react. For some natural essential oils used in products can still cause irritation.
Choosing Natural Skincare Products
When it comes to choosing the right products for your skin, be sure to check out the ingredients and who you are supporting. The natural and organic beauty industry is growing as consumers become conscious about environmental issues and personal well being.
