Natural Herbal Skin Care Products; the Healthier Choice Always!
People are concerned about the skin care products they use. Commercial skin care products sold these days contain too much of all sorts of chemicals and preservatives which may seem to perform what they promise but are either hazardous to our health, with harsh or carcinogenic chemicals exposed to the skin, or their claimed skin care benefits are short-lived. While the list of artificial ingredients supplied for use in commercial skin care products by the petroleum and chemical industry grows ever longer, more and more skin care product developers see the wisdom and efficacy of using mainly herbal ingredients without the chemical additives found in commercial, over-the-counter skin care products in their formulations.

More Specific Contents
Many natural herbal skin care products contain exclusive herbal ingredients which only work for a particular purpose, leaving other aspects of the skin unaffected, unlike the commercial skin care products. Women are unknowingly exposing themselves to some 100 chemicals -- many of which have been found to be toxic or carcinogenic -- every morning and night when they cleanse and treat their face with potions supposedly designed to make them look better. A typical contrast between commercial and natural herbal skincare products would be, for example, a natural herbal skin care solution for acne may contain witch hazel, which acts as a natural astringent for those having particularly oily skin problems. Leaving this product on the skin for an extended period wouldn’t do the user any harm, but a commercial product having the same function might contain chemicals such as 1, 4-dioxane and methylparaben, which can be very harmful to the skin when exposed to a longer period of time.
So because the skin eats, digests and eliminates, much like the body it encloses, only substances that nurture and support the skin should be applied to it. Harsh chemicals and pharmaceuticals are problematic because they must be eliminated by the skin, thereby taxing and aggravating it and they don’t align with the core biological requirements of our body needed for its health and longevity. Over time, the consequences of our diet, lifestyle choices, and stress factors start to catch up with us and begin to show on our skin; while we can’t avoid some of those “red flags,” we can use our awareness of wholesome and nourishing ingredients to “feed” our skin as wisely as we feed our faces!
