Natural skincare isn’t just some here-today-gone-tomorrow trend, it’s a lifestyle choice with far-reaching health, beauty and wellness benefits that’s more than just skin deep.
The skin is our largest organ and absorbs about 60% of what is put on it. International studies suggest that women put more than 100 different chemicals onto their bodies every day.
This is a startling number and perfectly puts into perspective why people are increasingly interested in natural skincare.
With products that promise everything from plumping to refining, whitening, brightening to smoothing, collagen-boosting and repairing, it’s easy to get swept away by the magic of the marketing schpiel, which is why it is useful to understand what sets natural products apart from the rest.
Our Pomegranate Seed Oil was developed in response to a need for a local, natural and versatile product. A product that’s clean, really natural, easy to use and, most importantly effective.
We believe the best skincare products are those made from organic plant extracts, and free of chemicals and toxic compounds. Our Pomegranate Seed Oil contains punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil with 0.1% natural preservatives and rosmarinus officinalis leaf (rosemary) extract in rapeseed oil. Significantly, our Pomegranate Seed Oil contains 80% of the powerful antioxidant punicic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid. Simply, what this means is that it is super simple but packed with goodness.
But apart from the fact that we’re obsessed with Pomegranate Seed Oil, natural skincare products are simply better for your skin and the environment.
Love your skin
As the biggest organ, the skin also functions as a protective barrier. And so what we put onto our skin has a profound effect on not just the appearance of the skin but on our overall health.
The chemicals in skincare products can actually penetrate your bloodstream, so are best avoided. You won’t ingest things like parabens, talc and oxybenzone so why apply it to your skin?
More and more reputable evidence points to the fact that natural skincare products heal and restore the skin, and is effective in treating hyper pigmentation and generally maintaining the good health of your skin.
Care for the environment
What’s more, the benefits of using natural skincare products goes beyond the aesthetic, extending most acutely to the environment.
Many of the ingredients found in commercial skincare products have a large environmental footprint as a result of mining (in places like the Amazon) and exploitation of scarce resources.
What’s more, during the manufacturing process, many of the chemicals and toxins used in skincare products end up in the air and in the water – the water we drink and the air that we breathe.
Smell the roses
Skincare products that are excessively fragrant are often the ones containing the most offending toxins as fragrances are often use to disguise the smell of chemicals in these products.
Much like the movement towards eating more natural, unprocessed food is gaining momentum worldwide, so too the understanding and appreciation of the benefits of natural skincare products is coming to the fore as the best choice for your skin and the environment.
