You may be familiar with looking at botanicals in a garden or in the form of a beautiful bouquet, but did you know that they can also be found in skin care products? Want to know more? We got you covered! We’re here to share more info behind botanicals and how your skin can benefit from the ingredient. Let’s hop in!
What Is Botanical Skincare?
Botanical skincare is about using plant-based ingredients instead of synthetic ingredients. Additionally, botanicals promote holistic health and wellness! In your typical skincare products, they most-likely use chemical-based fragrances that give products their scent. While they may smell good, they are not so great for your skin! With botanicals, you won’t have to worry about that. They are natural and, as you will soon learn, contain many beneficial properties!
What Are The Benefits?
So many great benefits, where do we even start?! Botanicals are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that protect your skin from those pesky UV rays and battle premature aging. Not only that, some botanicals can even promote collagen synthesis and weaken the activity of enzymes that lessen the appearance of supple and healthy skin. Who wants that?
We mention time and time again the importance of keeping your skin hydrated and guess what? Botanicals can help with that! The oils in the plants help create a protective barrier and allow the skin cells to maintain the water needed to function properly.
Inflammation? Nobody has time for that! With botanicals, it can help prevent it or control it. The oils from the plant contain phospholipids which have anti-inflammatory properties within them to maintain calm and soothed skin within the skin’s barrier.
All in all, the main importance of botanicals in skincare is that they can actually help our bodies enhance physiological processes. What does this mean? Botanicals will be able to keep our bodies in check that will leave us healthy, balanced, and connected to our natural rhythms!
Are They Safe?
There’s nothing to fear when it comes to botanicals in your skincare products - they are completely safe! They are natural, and do not contain any sort of synthetics or toxic ingredients. At our shop, we use fair-trade botanicals that not only smell good, they will do your skin a whole lot of good too!
