It is a well-known fact that the cosmetics industry is flourishing and will continue to increase. With the presence of so many different types of skin care products that are introduced on the market almost daily, consumers are hard pressed to choose products that they consider to be good for their skin. Nowadays, the hottest terminology in the cosmetics / skincare arena is natural skin care. However, contrary to popular beliefs, many of these natural skin care products still contain many synthetic or artificial chemicals.
In fact, synthesizing these chemicals is quite easy and presenting consumers with a jar full of chemical concocts should not be too difficult as well. In addition, with less stringent FDA rules for cosmetic / skincare products compared to drugs, we as consumers have more reasons to worry about harmful chemicals found in skin care products.
Although we are constantly introduced to the concept of natural skin care products by cosmetic manufacturers, natural skin care products can in fact be quite unnatural. It is even more important for consumers with skin allergies to be well-equipped with the knowledge of choosing the right type of skin care products. Learning to read the ingredient labels on skin care products is a way to make sure we buy skin care products that are as natural as possible. But reading of ingredient labels is not for everyone. After all, not all chemists or enjoy reading and understanding chemical names and formulas.
An alternative method that we can make our skin get the best natural skin care products is to handmade our own skin care products. By the end of last century, cosmetics and skin care products were either handmade or created by licensed pharmacists. With less access to skin care products manufactured by skin care products manufacturers, people used fruit, vegetables and herbs in their own gardens to treat skin conditions. It is not uncommon for these people to use common cooking ingredients to produce their own natural skin care products as well.
I strongly recommend such an exercise and think we will try to go back to the basics. If the natural skin care products work those days, it should still work for us today. Of course, we must be careful when choosing fruit and vegetables that are not sprayed with too much pesticides or herbicides, as such chemicals can do more harm than good to our skin. The choice of organic production can ensure that our skin has less contact with these harmful chemicals.
Fortunately, for us, there are many resources we can utilize to create our own natural skin care products. If we are allergic to some common natural skin care products, we can only avoid this fruit or vegetable.
These are the benefits of producing your own natural skin care products:
Without ads coming into the picture, it would be really cheaper to produce natural skin care products than buy them from skin care manufacturers who had spent a lot of money on their advertising strategies.
Easy to prepare
Since we do not try to produce chemical conjugates here, we would not need regular laboratory vessels and containers such as pipettes, burettes, conical pistons and test tubes. Basically, we would only use juice presses and other simpler equipment.
Knowledge of the actual components of your skin care products
Because we are manufacturers of our own natural skin care products, we can avoid adding ingredients to which we are allergic to.
The three benefits mentioned above are just many of the benefits of creating natural skin care products. I will list some of the common ingredients we can use to produce our own natural skin care products.
