People have been concerned with beauty since the beginning of time. Using natural ingredients such as Shea Butter and honey to achieve a flawless look is not a new concept. With the passage of time and advanced technology, we now have a variety of options to choose from. And, while many stores are filled with products that contain synthetic based ingredients, the growing trend finds us seeking out products that use natural, unrefined and raw ingredients: Back to basics and we love it here at Baraka Shea Butter!
There are a number of benefits to using skincare products that contain natural ingredients:
Goodbye to Harmful Chemicals
Many makeup and skincare products include chemicals and synthetic ingredients which are not ideal for many skin types as well as our health. These chemicals can cause burns, irritation and redness on the skin. Many people are questioning the effects that parabens and phthalates have on our bodies. Natural skincare products are usually free of harmful substances and therefore are safer for our skin and overall health.
Your Skin Will Be Softer
It is true that many traditional skincare products contain ingredients that are counter productive, meaning that instead of moisturizing your skin, they actually leave your skin dried out. You should see the beautiful and moisturized the skin of our Baraka Shea Butter producers. This is one of the benefits of working directly with pure, unrefined Shea Butter.
Everything Smells Better When It’s Natural
After spending time using naturally scented products, you will soon discover the difference between natural vs synthetic fragrance. You will likely never want to switch back once you have experienced the difference.
Less Side Effects
When skincare products are made from naturally sourced ingredients with no synthetic preservatives, many people discover that they have less skin irritation. Without any harmful chemicals, artificial colors, preservatives etc., the skincare products are likely more gentle on the skin.
While sometimes skincare products made with raw, natural and unrefined ingredients appear to have a higher price tag, in the end this might not be the case. Many store-bought, synthetic products contain WATER as their main ingredient. This “waters down” the product, causing you to use more. When using purely natural ingredients, you will receive a more concentrated product. Less is more. You will find that you require less product in order to achieve similar results.
We encourage you to go back to basics and enjoy the benefits that will follow!
