Why you Should Start Using Natural Skin Products in 2020

by | Jun 19, 2020 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

 In 2020, more than ever before, using natural skin care products, such as cream, face wash, mask, and moisturizer, is paramount if you want to enhance the beauty and youthful aspect of your skin. As women, we use a growing number of chemicals and we are constantly affected by the low air quality we breathe and the growing pollution.

 It is well known that women over 30 years of age put an average of 170 chemicals on their bodies daily, while men put an average of 85 chemicals. This includes anything from hair gel, using makeup, washing the hair with shampoo & conditioner, and using face or hand creams.

 With so many chemicals involved in women’s daily routines, it is no wonder that skin-related diseases have exploded. Skin cancer is becoming increasingly common, while more and more women are complaining about a lack of protection for their skin. The situation is quite grim for the healthcare industry, especially as women are slowly coming to realize the importance of using natural products for their skin.

 This is where natural skin care products become even more important. By choosing natural skin care creams, moisturizers, shampoos, and makeup products, you can stay protected against any life-threatening condition and gain the peace of mind that your skin is looking its best.

 Skin care and beauty products formulated with artificial, harmful ingredients, interfere with your body’s natural detox process, and can negatively impact your immune system. Conversely, beauty products containing only natural ingredients are a safer alternative, especially if they undergo minimal processing.

 Natural skin care products offer several advantages to your body, skin, and even to the environment. Let us explore some of the main reasons why you should start using natural skin care beauty products in 2020 and beyond.

Before we jump into the amazing benefits here are some natural skin care products we recommend, 

We love our Buchu range and we know your skin will too. Buchu is an amazingly versatile plant growing in the slopes of the mountainous areas in the Southern and Western Cape. Buchu is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties that relieve swelling and gives a great boost to a dull and tired-looking skin. 

Mixed with bentonite clay, our cleansers have deep cleansing action & high concentration of minerals decongests & heals your skin, restoring your natural smoothness.

We have combined a special ‘Healing Face Care Set’ just for you to get started. Oh yes, if you order today, you will receive a FREE Baobab Serum valued at R 189 + Free Delivery.

Alright, let us continue with the benefits.


  1. Much Better for your Skin

Beauty products containing only natural ingredients or contain mostly natural compounds, with minimum artificial compounds, offer your skin the protection it needs. Creams made of natural ingredients or natural face moisturizer protect your skin from sun damage, clear-up breakouts, soothe irritation and offer powerful anti-inflammatory properties.  Buchu is an indigenous plant with medicinal properties and the oils have proven to reduce the overproduction of sebum (natural oils) on the skin causing breakouts and acne. It naturally reduces inflammation and pain offering benefits not only to your skin but overall health benefits.

Because your skin is like a sponge, using skin care products like cleansers, moisturizers and toners enables your body to quickly absorb them. If you absorb chemical toxins in your body, you will damage your immune system and become more prone to certain dangerous conditions. On the other hand, using natural skin care products made from plant or flower extracts keep your skin supple, nourishing your body and protecting it from any potential disease.

  1. Keep your Body-Safe

Your skin is the bodies largest organ and is equipped with an invisible protective barrier to keep your body safe from any dangerous viruses that might enter your bloodstream. However, the substances that get absorbed in the skin can also get past that protective barrier, causing damage.

 Numerous studies showed that our immune systems, nervous systems, reproductive systems and even moods can be affected by the compounds that are found in beauty products. By using only natural skin care products, you will be able to keep your body safe and protected against any potential dangers.

  1. Gain Peace of Mind

Another reason to start using natural skin care products in 2020 is that you will gain the peace of mind that your body is safe. Most of the chemicals that go into skin care and beauty products are not regulated by the FDA, so they pose certain health risks that have not yet been assessed. By using natural, regulated products, you gain the peace of mind that your body is safe and that you won’t be affected by dangerous chemicals that pose unknown risks to your body.

  1. Protect the Environment

Being environmentally friendly is a key trend in 2020. Everyone, from governments to environmentalists and non-profits is talking about staying environmentally safe and brainstorming for new ways to protect our world. If the chemicals present in most commercial beauty and skin care products are so bad for our bodies, imagine how dangerous they are for the environment.

Most beauty products include ingredients that require extensive mining, such as lead, aluminum, and petroleum. This mining process is destroying numerous areas of the globe, including the vast Amazonian forest. By going natural, you help protect our environment and do your own part in discouraging mining these elements from protected areas.

Natural products are recyclable and easily decomposed back into nature, leaving nothing behind that can be damaging to nature.

  1. Stay Away from Side Effects

Chemicals and fragrances added to most commercial skincare products are potentially dangerous for your skin, coming with certain side affects you do not want to experience. Some of these side affects you might have already experienced before include redness of the eyes & skin, irritations, breakouts, or allergic reactions such as cough or sneezing. Chemical products breakdown the natural barriers in our skin, exposing us to infection and bacteria.

Commercial skin care products may contain metals, synthetic fragrances, acids, aluminum components, sulfates, and chemical emollients. All of these take their toll on your skin, leading to dangerous allergic reactions.

  1. Natural Products for Skin Work Better

Whether it is a cream containing all-natural ingredients, a natural face moisturizer, organic shampoo or algae face mask, all beauty products made from natural ingredients tend to offer superior results. If you have sensitive skin that reacts to chemicals, you will be pleased to realize that natural skin care products offer you dramatically improved results with no side effects.

Natural skin care products contain natural ingredients and herbs such as astaxanthin, sea kelp, natural oils, coral powder, sea salt, Vitamin E, keratin, jojoba oil and others. Conversely, commercial skin care products that you need to avoid contain parabens, sulfates, DEA, TEA, MEA, petrochemicals, talc, synthetic dyes, triclosan, and Propylene glycol. For example, Baobab Oil contains vitamins A, D, E and F as well as Omega’s 3, 6 and 9. It has a high concentration of antioxidants and is a powerful free radical scavenger, breaking down damaged cells reducing the risk of cancer forming cells.

  1. Not tested on Animals

Organic and Natural skincare product does not need to be tested on animals. We are against animal cruelty and not only is our products made without animal cruelty, it is vegan friendly, with no animal ingredients used in any of our products.

Go for Natural Skin care Products in 2020

The fewer chemicals your beauty products contain, the better it is for your skin, body and the environment. Enjoy increased peace of mind and protect your body from side effects and allergic reactions by going with only natural skin care products in 2020 and beyond.
