According to one source we read, the average person applies ten different skincare products every day. That means up to 130 chemicals are being absorbed into their skin!
Although you’d hope the ingredients have all been approved for use in skin care and cosmetic products, no-one really knows what side-effects they might have, especially for people with sensitive skin.
Un-natural skincare: ingredients to avoid
If you are looking for skincare products for sensitive skin (or you are simply concerned for your skin and the environment) these are just a few of the commonly used chemicals you might prefer to avoid. You won’t find a trace of them in any of our products, we promise!
- Synthetic colours and fragrances
So, if you don’t want to apply any of those ingredients to your skin, what are the alternatives? Let’s look back to the time when humans had no other choice but to use natural skin care products…
History of natural skin care
According to Wikipedia, there are records of Ancient Egyptians using natural products to treat a variety of skin conditions. Meanwhile, it’s been traditional here in the UK and around the world to apply a ‘mud pack’ to improve the appearance of your skin.
Mud, mud, glorious mud!
Not just any old mud will do. Our skin cream contains a rare sediment known as Zander which is 6,000 years old and found only in certain parts of North East Europe.
Glacial water and a cool climate means the reeds at the lakeside decompose slowly to form a mud that stores a range of lipids, vitamins, minerals and amino acids that heal, nourish and rejuvenate skin cells.
We mix the Zander with natural oils to draw out toxins, metals and impurities from the skin with no need for parabens or other nasties. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of Zander before; it’s the basis of all our natural skin care products and has undergone extensive trials.
Important notes about “natural skin care”
There’s no legal definition of the word ‘natural’, although there is a common understanding that it refers to ingredients that are sourced rather than manufactured.
No ingredients – whether natural or chemical – can be guaranteed NOT to cause an allergic reaction. Although adverse reactions are extremely rare, our skin cream does contain traces of nut oils. If this affects you, please stop using the cream immediately and contact our customer care team.
