Many people nowadays are very concerned about their skin care products that they use, be it for themselves, or for their kids. Commercial skin care products sold universally these days contain too much of all sorts of chemicals and preservatives which do not perform what they promise to do. Many moisturizers and lotions that we use tend to leave our skin too dry after they go off. This is particularly very bad for our skin because at this stage it is more prone to problems, even more compared to before wearing the lotion itself.
General Content of Herbs
Natural herbal skin care products, which are purely made from herbs and other natural resources blended together at the best level, is indeed an alternative that many seek these days. These products, besides having what they are for, would generally contain natural herbs such as Goldenseal and Echinacea in almost all of them.
These natural herbal skin care ingredients are used as natural resource for antibiotic and immune building. When used for a long period of time, these herbal products also provide healing to various skin problems such as infections, rashes, cracking, and others.
Specific and Harmless Contents
Many natural herbal skin care products contain exclusive herbal ingredients which only work for the particular purpose without affecting other aspects of the skin, unlike the commercial skin care products. Take for example, a commercial moisturizer would usually only stay on for a maximum period of six hours, and having such exposure to the skin for such a period of time, the chemicals inside may be doing some other activities on the skin, without you knowing it. But when it comes to natural herbal skin care products, these herbs used are very much specific, so that they can perform at maximum level.
For example, a natural herbal skin care solution for acne would contain witchhazel, which can act as a natural astringent for those with particularly oily skin problems. And having these products on the skin would not do any harm, but when it comes to commercial products of the same function, they would contain chemical such as 1, 4-dioxane and methylparaben, which are very harmful to the skin when exposed to a longer period of time.
Most of these natural herbal skin care products are hand made from essential oils and herbal extracts. This is meaning to say that the product researches take many years to come up with one particular one, making sure that that particular product does not cause the same harm as the commercial skin care product that they are looking to alternate.
