What are botanical ingredients? 

Botanical ingredients are plant-derived or sourced from parts of plants like flowers, herbs, roots, fruits, or seeds. These plants have been grown without harmful pesticides and chemicals. Natural botanical ingredients date back to ancient civilizations, have been used in skincare for thousands of years, and continue to prove their powerful benefits that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Consumers are searching for more natural skincare products with clean ingredients and botanicals, which are more in demand than ever!

What is the difference between botanical and synthetic ingredients?

Synthetic ingredients use artificial lab-created chemical formulas that can be effective at treating certain skin conditions but can cause unwanted side effects. Some synthetic ingredients could include parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, and artificial colors. Synthetic ingredients can be harmful to the environment when discarded. Botanical ingredients come directly from nature in plants, oils, and minerals and are mild, gentle, nourishing, and effective. Botanical ingredients are also safer for the environment. Natural botanical skincare ingredients tend to be more expensive because they are high quality and costly to source.

Benefits of Using Botanical Ingredients

Anti-aging: It reduces fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone, prevents dark spots, and improves skin elasticity. 

 Antioxidants- Slow down the aging process and neutralize damaging free radicals. We need antioxidants to help collagen production and protect against UV damage. Our natural antioxidants deplete as we age, so it’s crucial to replenish this with our skincare to help restore our skin. 

UV Ray Protection– Some botanical skincare ingredients, such as flavonoids, absorb UV to help reduce exposure damage. 

Essential Nutrients -Botanicals contain potent nutrients for improving skin, keeping it healthy, and slowing aging. Vitamins C and E help to firm and rejuvenate skin. 

Fewer side effects -botanical ingredients have anti-irritating properties that are soothing and calming to the skin. Botanical ingredients are carefully formulated without harsh chemicals, making them an excellent option for sensitive and easily irritated skin.
