Natural face moisturizer is an important addition to your home. Everyone learns when he or she is growing up they need to use some kind of moisturizer on their skin, from head to toe. However, as we age, our skin types change and begin to mature, necessitating a different formula of skin cream and moisturizers at times. While most will opt for a cream moisturizer that attempts to reverse the aging process, others will opt for a more natural solution, especially on the facial skin where it is more delicate and requires more attention to detail.
Natural face moisturizer can be made with many different ingredients. It’s important to read the labels of the moisturizer to make sure you are getting a natural product. Most natural face moisturizers do not contain any chemicals, such as stearates, alkyl benzoate and glyceryl stearates, methylparaben, propylparaben, diazolidinyl, Dicaprylyl, maleate, tetrasodium EDTA, and others, all of which are synthetic and can cause allergic reactions or dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer Ingredients
While every manufacturer of natural moisturizers claim that their brand is the best, it is impossible to believe any of them just on sheer word alone. Instead, do your research because one ingredient that is good for someone else may not be the best for you.
For example, some moisturizers contain natural compounds that act as chemicals do, such as retinols, or vitamin A compounds, but if you have sensitive skin, these moisturizers will irritate the skin even though the ingredient is natural. The same is true of other compounds such as some B vitamins like Panthenol. While most claim this vitamin does not irritate the skin, cases have been reported in which Panthenol was the cause of irritation.
The best natural face moisturizer ingredients are typically natural oils such as almond, olive, and Vitamin E and A. Cocoa butter is also great for the skin.
Always make sure the ingredients in natural face moisturizer agree with your specific skin type before using it as it will prevent any possible reactions.
Natural Face Moisturizer Shelf Life
Because natural face moisturizers are made from natural ingredients, it contains nothing to help preserve its shelf life such as preservatives normally found in non-natural formula moisturizers. It is very delicate and can “go bad’ just as any food would go bad if kept on the shelf for too long. This is why it is recommended that natural moisturizers and other natural beauty products be replaced in the following conditions:
- If it is discolored
- If it smells bad or sour
- If it is sticky or goopy when it is supposed to be a liquid
- If you can see any impurities or cloudiness
If your bottle of natural face moisturizer shows any of these signs, it is time to stop using it immediately and replace it with a new bottle.
