Hi,

Below is our first blog post and we want to say hello and spread our love for natural beauty products.

Skin care products play a crucial role in our lives. They are the fuel for our bodies as we use them daily to feed skin essential nutrients. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the quality of the ingredients in our personal care items and to ensure we test where they originate from. We reveal various details as to how the chemicals in beauty products impact our skin and body. Hopefully, this will make it easier for you to understand the importance of quality awareness and examining the list of ingredients that you buy.

Let us start with the definition of natural beauty products. They are items of which the ingredients come from nature, without any toxic or artificial additives. The concentration of pure natural ingredients used in natural cosmetic products are higher than in conventional ones.

Harmful Oils

You may not know this, but when it comes to mainstream personal care products, a large portion of the ingredients used, are low-cost synthetic oils, which are made from petroleum. Doesn’t sound too good, does it? The worst thing is, that these additives function similarly to silicone: they cover the skin with an impenetrable layer and thus interrupt regular metabolic processes. As a result, the skin cannot breathe or absorb active ingredients. Furthermore, recent studies show synthetic oils can accumulate in our livers, kidneys or lymph nodes. Synthetic oils are only one of the many substances in mainstream skin care products that can be questionable, not to mention many more similar chemicals which are being used in the beauty industry.

In order to take good care of your skin, you should look for natural products free of:

  • artificial preservatives
  • synthetic fragrances
  • artificial coloring
  • petroleum products
  • chemically processed compounds (silicones, parabens)
  • GMO plants

Harmful-Sounding Natural Skincare Ingredients That Are Safe

Even natural beauty products need preservatives to prevent bacterial or fungal growth. Pure oils are exceptions; while they do not need to be processed, we recommend keeping them in the fridge in case of long-term use.

Here is a list of approved preservatives for natural beauty items.

  • Sodium Benzoate (preservative);
  • Pottasium Sorbate (preservative);
  • Citric Acid (makes the skin brighter and gently exfoliated);
  • Benzyl alcohol (preservative and fragrance);
  • Dehydroacetic Acid (preservative);
  • Tocopherol (vitamin E; a preservative and strong antioxidant that inhibits skin aging processes.)

Naturally the Best

What is inside your personal beauty products is key. Biological alternatives to artificial ingredients (e.g. natural vegetable oils instead of common mineral oils) promote and support the inner workings of the skin. Just as artificial beauty products fill in for the skin, disturbing its natural balance, natural lotions and creams do not interfere with its normal rhythm and healing processes.

We hope our article helped you a little in order to understand the importance of knowing what we apply on our skin. You can subscribe to our newsletter – a new blog post will appear weekly to help you get that inside and outside GLOW, step by step.

Lots of love,
