If you’ve ever found yourself wondering: What are the benefits of using natural skin care products?
With so many skin care and beauty products out there, it can be hard to narrow down which ones to buy. Many cosmetics make wide-ranging far-flung claims and you might be wondering, “What can I trust??” Nowadays it seems like every company under the sun is offering natural ingredients, so you might be curious to know what that even means. And why does it even matter? Well, here at Dr. Bessette Naturals we're on a mission to empower our customers with knowledge, so let's dive in! Here are some benefits of using natural skin care products that we think are worth knowing!
Why “natural” matters: The benefits of using natural skin care products
It’s important to remember that our skin is the largest organ of our body. With about 5 million pores (20,000 on your face alone!) our skin is a gateway into the inner world of our bodies. So whatever you put on your skin, is getting right in there through your pores. Here are three benefits of using natural skin care products we think you should know.
Many synthetic ingredients are known skin irritants. It is not unusual for skin care companies to use synthetic ingredients as fillers, preservatives, or dyes and fragrances. Common ingredients include things like:
For instance, it’s pretty common to find silicone on ingredient lists because it helps to make hair and skin look extra shiny and smooth. But silicone sticks around, and well... it can take around 400-500 years to biodegrade.
Ok, let's actually take this benefit one step further and say that sustainably sourced natural ingredients do not harm the environment. Palm oil, for instance, is a natural ingredient. However, the palm oil industry is a major culprit behind the deforestation of the most biodiverse forests in the world. That’s why we never use palm oil in our products.
We make it easy
Thankfully, today it is totally possible to find products that not only use natural ingredients, but also natural ingredients that are sustainably and ethically sourced. Like us! At Dr. Bessette Naturals, we truly believe in the power of natural ingredients that won’t do harm to you or Mother Earth. All of our products contain the highest quality ingredients so you can feel naturally beautiful.
