Do you know what's in your store-bought skin moisturizer? Chances are it's probably loaded with preservatives, wax (filler/stabilizer), and chemicals meant to prolong its shelf life and save the company money while making you feel like you're getting a good value.
Do you know the significance of the order that those ingredients are listed in? If you do, you're ahead of the game, sis! The ingredients are listed in order of their concentration in the product. The higher up on the list, the more abundant the ingredient is in the product. I challenge you to take a look at the ingredient lists of your favorite store-bought skincare products, and find out if the ingredients offer any healing or nourishment values to your skin. In the meantime, get to know the benefits of skin moisturizers that you won't need to detox from or pay shipping on, because our body butters ship FREE!
The Natural Skincare Queen's collection of body butters has a simple list of ingredients: Mango butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and essential/fragrance oil.
Mango butter is loaded with vitamins like A and E, essential fatty acids, and natural antioxidants that repair and nourish the skin.
Cocoa butter is known to prevent dryness and peeling, fight signs of aging, and soothe burns, rashes, and infections.
Benefits of shea butter include anti-inflammatory properties to calm irritated skin, anti-aging properties, reduction of stretch marks, and skin and hair moisturizing capabilities.
Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and moisturize and protect the skin. It is also anti-microbial.
Sweet almond oil prevents and slows the existing effects of UV damage, is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory, clears pores, and helps prevent acne.
Do the research, see how your store-bought skincare products measure up, and then choose well!
