Skincare products have a wide array of varieties available on the market today, and we are seeing a lot more products labelled “Natural”. Is it a trend? Is it just another marketing jargon? Or is it actually better for your skin? Think of it like this, just like how we choose natural and organic food to eat, your skin also deserves to be treated with the same care! With many people now being more mindful about what they put in their mouths and on their skin, we begin to realise how our beauty choices can affect our overall health and well-being. Healthy looking skin is also a good indication of our health, inside and out. So let us dive deep into the reasons why you should add natural skincare products with no added nasties in your shopping cart.
Many people would agree that natural skincare products are less polluting and therefore are good, not only for you but also for the environment because of their natural ingredients. These ingredients are not harmful when released into the environment. They’re safe for the wildlife, soil and are biodegradable. Most companies that offer natural skincare products are also doing their best to sustainably source their ingredients. For example, our Snowberry Garden in New Zealand is where we sustainably source, grow and harvest our unique ingredients native to the island of New Zealand. The garden is also home to our BioShed, a facility run on the gardens on renewable energy to ensure we are sustainable about taking care of the environment.
At this eco-friendly facility, we produce our proprietary ingredients and extract and process our Harakeke Seed Oil and Kanuka Honey on-site. By having a sustainably sourced ingredient, not only is it good for the environment and its ecosystem, natural skincare products maintain their quality for years to come. It also feels good to know that your lifestyle, in this case, your choice of skincare, is good for the environment!
The main reason skincare products exist is to take good care of your skin, and what better way to do that than using natural products that are made mainly from plants. Plants naturally contain minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fatty acids. In addition, the skin thrives on the vital antioxidants provided in a nutritious skincare product. Your skin will be protected from the sun’s UV rays. Not to mention soothing the skin from any kinds of irritation or itchiness. Organic skincare is also made by following the same standards as organic food. Thus, when choosing organic skincare, you use ingredients that work in harmony with your body, allowing your skin to better balance and mend itself.
Contrary to popular beliefs, natural products are actually as potent, if not more, than their more generic counterparts. Made from friendly ingredients that sound familiar to your ear, such as oil extracts, fruits, honey, etc. These ingredients are highly beneficial for the skin whilst also keeping it safe. The advancement of science and technology has made it possible to extract beneficial properties like vitamins and antioxidants that reside within said ingredients. This lets us identify harmful nasties like harmful chemicals and preservatives, and keep it away from all our skincare products. Ensuring only the best possible ingredients that will ever touch your skin. But, of course, when it says natural, it is still concocted in a lab, and that’s the beauty of it. These nasties are kept off of your face through rigorous research and formulation conducted by our team of expert scientists. Finding the right formula is the key to having a balanced product that’s good for your skin.
When looking for a new skincare product for yourself, the question to ask is, “Why not go natural?” With the advancement of science and technology, combining the best of both worlds would definitely bring life to every inch of your skin.
