The Long-term Benefits of Moisturising with Natural Ingredients

When it comes to skincare, there are a few things that everyone knows: cleanse, tone, moisturise. But how many of us really understand why moisturising is so important, and why using products with natural ingredients is better for our skin in the long run?

Let's start with the basics: our skin needs moisture. Without it, we can experience dryness, flakiness, and even premature ageing. Moisturising helps to keep our skin hydrated and healthy, preventing these issues from arising.

But not all moisturisers are created equal. Many commercial products contain harsh chemicals that can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to further dryness and irritation. Natural moisturisers, on the other hand, are formulated with gentle, nourishing ingredients that work in harmony with our skin.

So what are the long-term benefits of moisturising with natural products? Let's take a closer look.

Natural moisturisers are less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions

Synthetic ingredients like fragrances, preservatives, and emulsifiers can be harsh on sensitive skin, leading to redness, itching, and even acne. By using products with natural ingredients, we can reduce the risk of these issues and promote a calmer, more balanced complexion.

They can often contain antioxidants

Natural moisturisers can also contain antioxidants, which help to protect our skin from environmental damage. UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental factors can all contribute to premature ageing, but antioxidants can neutralise free radicals and prevent oxidative stress. Look for natural ingredients like vitamin E, avocado, and aloe vera, which are all rich in antioxidants.

They're often more sustainable & environmentally friendly

Lastly, natural moisturisers are often more sustainable and environmentally friendly than their synthetic counterparts. Many commercial products are packaged in plastic, which can take hundreds of years to decompose and contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution. By choosing products with natural ingredients and eco-friendly packaging, we can reduce our impact on the planet and support sustainable, ethical brands.

At Oleo Bodycare, we use recycled packaging and PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) material for all the bottles and containers we use to store our products.

Tips to help when choosing a natural moisturiser

So, what should you look for when choosing a natural moisturiser? Here are a few tips: Read the ingredients list carefully. Look for natural oils and butters like jojoba, shea butter, and avocado oil, which are rich in nutrients and moisturising properties.

Avoid synthetic fragrances, which can be harsh on the skin and contribute to allergic reactions. Instead, look for products that use essential oils for fragrance.

Choose products that are packaged in glass, metal, or other eco-friendly materials, such as PCR material and support brands that use sustainable and ethical sourcing practices.
