Natural Ingredients Outperform Their Chemicals Cousins

Okay, here it is. "Advanced Poly-peptides", "collagen", "Argeriline"'
(acetyl hexapeptide-3), and other hyped additives in main stream
moisturizers are hype at best and at worse even dangerous. Synthetic
collagen added to your moisturizer does not add to your own skin's
collagen. The new "Argerilene" is touted as the greatest thing ever
invented for curing wrinkles, but as a topical botox-type serum that
paralyzes facial muscles, the long term effects are simply unknown.
Why take the risk?
take the risk of adding synthetic chemicals to your body when nature
has been the source for great beauty products for centuries? And it is a risk. The more they study the effects of synthetic chemicals in the body, the more they find. Like how parabens, chemical preservatives, mimic estrogen in our bodies and have shown up in breast tissue tumors. And no one knows what the effects of multiple chemicals in our bodies are having with our health. Not to mention the fact that the less we irritate our skin with petroleum-based ingredients and synthetic fragrances, the less products we need.
Nature has the secret!
The secret to great skin isn't in some patented formula. Nature has offered up her skin solutions for centuries. Floral
essences of German Chamomile, Calendula, and Lavender are known for
their soothing properties, effectively treating skin issues like eczema
and rosacea. Plant oils from Olive, Jojoba, Rose hip, and others have
smoothed wrinkles and moisturized skin without adverse effects for
years. And Tea Tree has been proven in a clinical study to be equally effective as benzoyl
peroxide at treating acne, but without the side effects of drying, redness and oxidization of the skin, which forms free radicals that ages the skin.
With so many
wonderful ingredients from nature, like Aloe Vera and Shea Butter, the
need for synthetic chemicals seems questionable. While it is true that
nature does not allow for patent protections and that growing natural
ingredients means big businesses would have to adopt Earth-friendly
practices, why, as consumers, would we accept the gimmicks
and hype blasted at us by the large beauty companies.
fragrances and promises of "reduced fine lines in 30 days" won't sell us. In fact, after using natural products on our skin for so long, we can
no longer stand the smell of any artificial fragrances. Which makes it
difficult to walk down some aisles at the grocery or department
stores. Just give us the scent of botanicals and the promise of no
synthetics allowed, and you've got us.
We have personally seen dry, leathery skin wrought with lines and wrinkles transformed to soft, supple skin with a healthy glow after discontinuing the use of harsh chemical additives. Nature provides all that your skin needs to be beautiful naturally.
