​Considering Natural Products For Skin

 Natural skin care products are made from non-artificial ingredients like natural oils, plants (like peppermint leaf herb, green tea extract), fruit extracts and fruit acids. These products are known to effectively treat the skin and nourish it. Most natural products have powerful antioxidants that assist in slowing down the aging process and creating a younger looking skin.

Skin care derived directly from nature is one of the best ways to get and keep your skin healthy and vibrant. Unfortunately, when choosing a product, you must keep in mind that not all natural skin care products are created equal.

Natural product formulations can vary wildly from brand to brand and many are still made with silicones that are simply not skin-friendly. The reason many brands are made with silicone is because, as an ingredient, it is much cheaper and it makes a lotion or cream feel more luxurious once you apply it. While silicone feels nice on your body it adds no real value.

Does the product have to be 100% natural or organic? As long as it is 95% natural, it is a safe bet, but you have to look at the ingredients and make sure that they are of high quality. Even if you were to receive an organic label from the USDA, your skin care product must contain at least 95 percent organically produced ingredients.

A product with more than 95% in natural ingredients is even better. When it comes to preservatives (the ones that kill bacteria, fungus and molds), make sure that the product does not use or contain any paraben (very small amounts of alternative bacteria killers are fine).
