Here at Little Soap Company, we believe in natural skin care products as a necessity. We’re more than passionate about reducing the amount of chemicals and synthetics that people unwittingly rub into their skin, and we’ve created the purist organic soap accessible to everyone. So why do we advocate natural skin care products so fiercely? Allow us to tell you…
The natural vitamins and minerals
Natural skin care products are bursting with natural ingredients, so vitamins and minerals take the place of nasty chemicals- and why wouldn’t you want that on your skin? A quick run down on essential vitamins for the skin:
- A: for luxuriously soft skin, vitamin A helps the skin to rebuild tissues and aids the healing of minor scrapes and scratches. It’s also a wonderful ant-ageing nutrient so essential for your skin care routine
- E: an effective antioxidant that helps to fight free radicals and reduce the appearance of ageing.
- C: also an effective antioxidant, vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen in the skin and helps to retain and youthful complexion.
- B Complex: essential for healthy skin and circulation.
The ingredients in natural skin care products can help to restore essential vitamins and minerals in your skin and will act as a natural boost for your complexion too. The ingredients in our soaps work to restore, invigorate and cleanse without the need for artificial chemicals, so you can rest assured that the vitamins and minerals that your skin needs are able to work their magic when you need it.
Natural ingredients in your skin care products are powerful antioxidants, and they work to eliminate free radicals, which helps to slow the ageing process. So the essential oils that we use (such a lavender and peppermint) work with herbs such as rosemary and thyme to combat problem areas on your skin, without compromising it at all. Many natural products are also anti-inflammatory, which means that they work to reduce puffiness and swelling and to soothe dry and irritated skin. You don’t need chemicals to do this for you!
Treating and reducing symptoms of skin conditions
Often the things that we put onto our skin can be the very things can cause skin conditions to occur! So that cream you apply in the quest for moisture and youthfulness may actually be stripping your body of the essential vitamins and minerals it needs to be soft and supple! Instead of investing lots of time and money in chemicals and false promises, go natural instead. Coconut oil, shea butter and lavender essential oil are all wonderful ingredients for treating dry skin and other conditions, and they will not cause an adverse reaction in your skin. All natural ingredients will also reduce the risk of allergies to chemicals.
So how to make the move?
Now that you know natural skin care products should be a necessity and not a luxury, how do you make the switch? First of all, do your research. Read your labels and learn which are the ingredients you need to be avoiding. Research the brand too, and make sure that you agree with the company ethos. Shopping locally is a great idea and you can rest assured that all of our soaps are not only natural, but we use locally sourced ingredients too.
Look for products that do not test on animals and that are free from parabens too. Go organic and reap the benefits:
- glowing skin
- fewer breakouts
- reduced skin sensitivity
- fewer health risks
