When looking for skincare products reading the label is a must. If you look for the Natural Products Association's Natural Seal you will know that 95 of the product's ingredients are certified natural. The ingredients are listed in order so you know what the main constituents are. Avoid synthetic antibacterials, mineral oil or petroleum, phthalates and sulfates.
Look for ingredients such as shea,cocoa and mango butters, apricot kernel oil, vegetable glycerin and vitamin E. Biodegradable cleansers are good for your health and the environment.Soaps and skin care products with goat milk are good for many skin conditions including rashes, dry skin and eczema. (My niece has severe eczema and Gathered's Goat Milk Lotion is the only one she can use.)
Natural skin care products are really not hard to find. There are dozens of companies that produce good quality, natural skin care products and they can be found using Yahoo, MSN or Google without much difficulty. Yes, they can be expensive, but they are no more expensive than similar, products containing synthetic chemicals produced by major brands such as L’Oreal, Lancôme, and others.
In order to do a lot of good for your skin, you should choose ingredients that clean, moisturize, protect, and feed the skin. Natural skin care sure seems the way to go.
