And why buy a natural anti aging moisturizer?
Gradually there is a trend amongst consumers of personal products towards more natural and organic products utilising safe and natural ingredients. And for this reason there is a huge market for natural anti aging moisturizers.
Because one of the most important aspects of quality skin care is adequate moisturizing.
As people become aware of the range of chemical and petrochemical and artificial ingredients in modern skin care products and anti aging products they are clamouring for safe alternatives that work effectively at moisturizing your skin.
Lets consider some of the ingredients that you shouldn’t find in your moisturizer, and let’s also consider some ingredients that are safe and natural and which work effectively and should be found in any natural anti aging moisturizer.
Avoid any skin care products or for that matter any personal or beauty products or cosmetics that contain petrochemicals. Mineral oil is a fine example of a petrochemical product that you shouldn’t find in any product you are putting on your skin. Mineral oil is made from crude oil and is not good for your skin, though sadly it is found in many skin care and anti aging products and moisturizers in particular.
Parabens are another chemical ingredients that are linked to various health risks and which are commonly found in anti aging products such as moisturizers. Parabens are a cheap preservative. There are other safer natural preservatives available however they are more expensive and for this reason the major skin care companies do not use them.
This may come as a surprise however fragrances should also be avoided. We won’t go into full details now. But fragrances are just nice smelling chemicals and can cause allergic reactions and other health problems.
That’s only a few of the chemical and petrochemical ingredients found in modern anti aging products such as moisturizers. There’s lots more.
The sad thing is there are some wonderful natural moisturizers which have been used for centuries by women in many cultures for improving the health of their skin.
Olive oil, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil and many others all have moisturizing properties, however are rarely used in modern skin care products because they are more expensive.
However the best natural anti aging skin care products do use ingredients such as these along with several other natural ingredients that you may never have heard of but which are extremely effective at optimum skin care.
An example is Phytessence Wakame. This is a seaweed found around the coast of Japan which has been eaten by the Japanese for centuries. It has been long known that Japanese women have wonderful skin and science is now beginning to realize that this is because of the natural properties of Phytessence Wakame to moisturize and protect the skin.
One small innovative natural skin care company is now producing extremely high quality natural products using ingredients such as these, including Phytessence Wakame, in it’s products.
And these products work exceptionally well. In fact this small company is so proud of the skin care products that it makes that it offers its customers an unconditional 90 day money back guarantee on its products. Try getting that from one of the big brands.
In fact this company does not make a moisturizer at all. This is because it believes that all skin care products should moisturize effectively, and therefore puts the ingredients mentioned above, and many others, in a wide range of it’s products, avoiding the necessity for a dedicated moisturizer.
The obvious question to ask however is what these products cost. If these natural ingredients are more expensive than the chemical alternatives used by the big name skin care companies then surely the products must be more expensive as well?
Not necessarily, in fact the products are highly competitive in price. That’s because a major part of the cost of products is marketing them. Television advertising and magazine advertising is seriously expensive, and all of those costs must be recovered in the price of the product. That’s why the ingredients are kept as cheap as possible.
