People are usually drawn to natural cosmetics because they have sensitive skin or suffer reactions to certain ingredients. You'll find that fragrances and preservatives are the main culprits and your best bet for finding natural or organic cosmetics is to check the ingredients and look for certifications...
There’s currently a trend for ‘natural’ skincare and these products are made from non-artificial ingredients including natural oils, plants, fruit extracts and fruit acids. Some natural products have powerful antioxidants that assist in slowing down the ageing process and effectively treating and nourishing the skin, which make them a good alternative to synthetic or chemical products. Want to know more? Below is my list of natural products that effectively help the skin and feel amazing to use. Let’s get this beauty cabinet overhaul started.
