The Benefits of Natural Products
Keeping your skin healthy and beautiful can be a time-consuming endeavor, but it is even more challenging if you can only use a limited range of product types. Fortunately, natural skin care
options have grown in popularity over the past decade. Naturally formulated hand and foot creams are designed to nourish and moisturize skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, and other softening ingredients from nature work to massage and soften your skin.
Other popular ingredients carry relaxing and invigorating aromatherapy benefits, such as lavender, peppermint, and lemon verbena. Some people with sensitive skin find that they experience less irritation from botanicals compared to common chemicals used in skin care products. However, it is important to note that some natural products contain chemicals, so check the ingredients list before purchasing a new product. It’s also important to understand that it’s still possible for some individuals to experience a sensitivity reaction to certain botanical ingredients.
The Difference between Organic and Natural Products
When shopping for natural personal care
products, the terminology can sometimes get confusing. Natural products are designed using botanical ingredients based in nature, but can contain chemical ingredients as well. Organic products must adhere to stricter requirements. In order to carry an organic label in the United States, ingredients must be certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This certification requires that 95 percent of a product's ingredients are natural and not grown with pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Organic products cannot be genetically modified and may not be processed using radiation or sewage sludge. These guidelines allow you to know what is in the product you are purchasing.
Natural Foot Care Products
A lot of time is spent taking care of skin that is visible on a daily basis, but it is important to look after the skin on your feet as well. When your feet develop rough skin and callouses, walking can become challenging and uncomfortable. Using green and natural
foot care products can help to keep your feet soft and pampered.
These formulas rely on naturally sourced moisturizing ingredients to restore your feet to a soft and healthy state. For exceptionally rough feet, try an exfoliating product to slough away callouses and rough skin. If you have issues such as warts, toenail fungus, and cracked heals, you can find a green product to address your issues naturally.
Between regular washing and exposure to all environmental factors throughout the day, your hands can easily become irritated or dry. Keep them moisturized using a green formula to maintain your soft skin without compromising your values. If you have dry skin, look for products that contain a strong moisturizing ingredient such as shea butter or beeswax. You can also select from a range of scents to suit your personal preference. back to top »
