What Is Natural Skin Care?

Natural skin care is a type of skin care that uses natural ingredients such as plant extracts, essential oils, and other natural substances to nourish and protect the skin. Natural skin care products are often made with organic ingredients. Natural skin care products are naturally derived from the earth, naturally processed, or, ideally, both! Natural Skincare products are designed to nourish and protect the skin without causing irritation or other negative side effects. Whereas many traditional market products may still utilize chemical or synthetic ingredients, the natural skin care movement pushes to manufacture products that prioritize minimal, naturally found ingredients in favor of the stuff found in science labs. This isn’t to say all natural ingredients are good and all synthetic ingredients are bad. There’s a balance! We’ll break it down so you know what to look for (and avoid!) in your skincare routine

Modern Beauty Terms

Everywhere you turn, there are new beauty terms being slapped onto product labels.
Very often, they will overlap and get looped in with one another. But what do they all mean, and how are they different from natural skin care? Let’s break it down.


Generally, if an ingredient in a product is listed as simply “natural,” that means the ingredient has been left alone and is used holistically within the product you’ve got on hand.
Great examples of natural products that are left alone are raw, natural honey; sea salt; oats; and aloe. There are many products that include these components without altering their original, natural form! This is one of the biggest draws for do-it-yourself skin care at home; you know that all of your ingredients are natural because you sourced them yourself!


Organic is a word that has some weight behind it. U.S. companies have to pay for organic certifications for their products — when you see that green USDA label, you know you’re picking up a product that’s legitimate!
That being said, brands will often pay for organic certifications if they want to highlight a specific ingredient in their product. However, it does not necessarily mean the entire product is organic! Be sure to check if only one of the ingredients is labeled organic or if the entire product is marked as such. Entirely organic products are guaranteed to be natural and free of synthetics, toxins, fragrances, or any other non-naturally occurring ingredient.

The Allure of Organic Skin Care

By now, you may be asking yourself, “What is the big deal about natural skin care?” As the number of people diagnosed with sensitive skin by dermatologists continues to rise, natural skin care may be the key to relieving the discomfort caused by harsh chemicals or additives. The hard-hitting, common additives in skin care products can be serious irritants to your health. They include: • Parabens • Alcohol • Phthalates • Sulfates • Formaldehyde (and its other forms, such as methylene glycol) • Oxybenzone All of these chemical compounds have been linked to health issues, ranging from rashes to asthma, fertility issues, and even cancer. In this case, just saying “no” may be your best bet when dealing with these harsh ingredients. Plus, natural skin care is largely more sustainable and better for the earth! Generally speaking,, if the product doesn’t hurt the Environment when it’s created, it is likely that its disposal will not either.

How To Incorporate Natural Skin Care Into Your Routine

Not everything is negative, so don’t be too quick to discard all of your bathroom items!

Switching to natural, eco-friendly ingredients in your skin care routine can be a process, but you may be pleasantly surprised to discover how many of the products you already use are gentle on your skin.

We always encourage you to do your research. Make sure you read the labels of the things you purchase and keep an eye out for those nasty chemicals that may end up negatively impacting your health.

Of course, you know your skin best, so use what works for you!

But if you’re ready to take the first step toward a more natural beauty routine, consider buying the essentials first. Think about what you use in your everyday regimen.

For instance, moisturizers are by far some of the most-used products in your day-to-day life. These are great places to start!
