Moringa Oleifera

In today’s time, one can’t get enough of skin and hair products advertised on radio, television, in the internet, and in billboard ads along with a picture of famous celebrities. Often enough, product manufacturers would make superlative promises just to make their product commercially viable to their target market. With so many products circulating and synthetic ingredients added, it is often hard to choose the right product. To cut the long story in short, it is important to choose your product wisely.

Why go natural?

According to research, natural skin and hair care products are still the best source. It possesses structural and chemical diversity that is unsurpassed by synthetic ingredients. Moreover, reverting to synthetic products may be harmful than beneficial. This is due to the fact that your skin not only takes in nutrients, but may also take in toxins. The skin has a unique barrier system that filters what goes in and out of the pores. However, too much exposure to pollution, harmful UV rays, and unhealthy products can diminish the effectivity of the skin’s barrier system.
Make a mental estimate of how many products you apply on your skin everyday? Think about soap, cleansers, moisturizers, cosmetics, fragrances and a lot more. Moreover, cosmetics are not limited to moisturizer and powder – today’s beauty regimen includes a layer of primer, foundation, concealer, powder, blush, highlights, and so much more. Imagine what can those layers do to your skin.

Your skin needs support.

Aside from the weight of cosmetic products on your skin, think about the environmental factors. Think about pollution, heat, direct UV sunlight, etc. Moreover, imagine the length of time the cosmetics – along with toxins from pollution – stay in your skin. This is why it is best to properly clean the skin thoroughly every day. Imagine an all natural cleanser – a pool of all natural ingredients – to support your skin?
