Benefits of Using Natural Skincare Products

Beautiful young woman applying organic cosmetics to her skinUsing products that contain organic, botanically-based ingredients – including plant extracts and essential oils – is a healthy, earth-friendly way to nourish and protect your skin. See our Ingredients page for details.

Natural ingredients feature a host of surprising skin benefits. Many add hydration, protect the skin from damage and speed up healing. For example, Lavender essential oil speeds cell turnover to repair and replenish skin, especially following a burn or trauma. It can also benefit acne, small cuts or bruises, burns, fatigue and stress. We include Lavender in our balm and our floral body oil.

Another advantage of using our natural, plant based products is that they are cruelty – free. No animal-derived ingredients. More importantly none of our products (or the separate ingredients) have been tested on animals

How to look after your skin in cold weather

Maple leavesThe cold weather is starting to bite this week and with February – statistically the coldest month of the year – here, we give you our top tips to prepare your skin for the coming months:

1.           The chilly winds will dry and chafe your skin – making it feel like cardboard. Apply our balm to face and hands before you go out. It will form a protective, moisturising barrier.  While you are out braving the elements, the naturally active ingredients in the balm will gentle soak into the skin, making it feel smooth and nourished.

2.           Apply our lip balm about 20 minutes before applying your lipstick. This allows time for it to soak in, protecting your lips from the elements throughout the day, and gives you a slicker coat of colour.

3.           Be aware that central heating will dry you out just as the sun does, so keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Jazz it up by adding a slice of cucumber and a squeeze of fresh lemon to a glass of warm water – warm water is less of a shock to the digestive system than cold, and the lemon juice is super cleansing.

Why Natural Skincare?

Try it – switching from mainstream products to our all-natural skincare products means you eliminate many ingredients that can clog your pores and irritate your skin. Ingredients such as mineral oil, synthetic colours, fragrances and harsh preservatives are harsh and can do more damage to your skin, than good.  You are literally swapping from a cocktail of chemicals to an arsenal of vitamins and minerals.

Feed your skin with all the vitamin-rich goodness nature has to offer. Swapping petrochemicals like mineral oil and petroleum for nutrient-dense oils, butters and plant extracts not only to hydrate your skin but also to help repair damaged skin.
