7 Natural Ingredients... Nature's Skincare Gifts
Don't get us wrong synthetic products claim to do some pretty amazing things, but one has to consider the health risk since most promised results come from consistent use. And it is long term use that usually presents the negative effects of synthetic products. That is the reason EmGe seeks out effective natural ingredients with a proven track record of being beneficial for skin.
There is a large range of natural ingredients that are exceptional for skin and that is brings us to the gifts provided to us by Mother Nature. After some research we have learned that most of the trendy synthetic ingredients do in fact occur in nature and that is where the scientist get the ideas.
Did you know salicylic acid and the now popular hyaluronic acid are found in natural ingredients like Aloe Vera, Indian Senna and Sweet Potato? That just proves that Nature is well aware of what we need, we have just got to reach out and take it.
Now here is the disclaimer... Not every natural ingredient is good for every skin type. So be sure to do some patch testing before going all out with any new product. Take the citrus ingredients for example Lemongrass, Lime, Orange or Grapefruit may not be the best choice for those with sensitive dry skin, but a skincare product containing a citrus ingredient may work well for normal to oily skin.
We just wanted to take a moment to point out the skin benefits of some of our favorite ingredients.
