Natural skincare, why is everyone switching to it?
Have you ever looked at the ingredient list of a skincare product and felt like you needed a degree in chemistry to understand it? Many people are starting to feel the same way and are opting for natural skincare instead.
Whilst the term ‘natural skincare’ can often be used quite loosely, it can simply be defined by its ingredients, which are derived from nature. To us, it means formulations that are plant-based and rich with botanicals.
When we talk about being a natural beauty brand, we define this by ensuring we are honest and transparent with our ingredients, their quality and traceability. It's important to know what ingredients are present in the skincare products you use, as they impact your overall well-being.
Natural skincare is a great choice for those looking to be kind to their skin, the environment, and their health. Discover why everyone is switching to natural skincare, and why you should consider it too.
All Natural Ingredients
To understand why natural ingredients are great for your skin, you must first understand how the skin is formed. The skin is composed of three distinct layers, the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue.
The outermost layer of the epidermis, known as the dermal layer, plays a crucial role in preserving the skin's moisture and safeguarding the underlying layers against potential irritants and toxins.
Once a barrier is damaged, ingredients applied to the skin have the potential to make the symptoms worse. Ingredients such as synthetic acids, fragrance, fillers, and many preservatives can worsen the damaged barrier by inflaming already delicate skin cells.
The most effective way to repair a damaged barrier is to first heal the barrier. The next step is to strengthen the barrier to avoid future damage. This is where natural ingredients work to not only heal, but protect the skin.
At Saya Skincare, our product range is formulated by sourcing the highest quality ingredients for purity, traceability, and sustainability.
Eco friendly & Sustainable
Sustainability starts with the ingredients within the formulations of skincare.
Many conventional skincare products are made with ingredients, like sulphates, that are harmful to the environment. Used commonly as cleansing and foaming agents, sulphates are manufactured from petroleum - the leading producer of greenhouse gases, which in turn is the main cause of climate change.
So why is switching to natural skincare more environmentally responsible?
Natural skincare products are most commonly formulated with ethically sourced, renewable, and eco-friendly ingredients that have a lower environmental impact. By using ingredients that are renewable and biodegradable, skincare brands can reduce their environmental footprint.
We believe that as a skincare brand, it is our responsibility to support responsible and sustainable practices that promote eco-friendliness and protect the environment. From our packaging to our formulas, we ensure that we put sustainability at the forefront of our brands values.
Skincare that actually works
When it comes to your skin there are a lot of skincare myths and misconceptions. One being that natural skincare is not as effective as its chemical counterparts. The fact is that natural skincare products are formulated with pure ingredients that are not diluted or mixed with other substances that can diminish their effectiveness.
With high concentrations of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, natural skincare products provide optimal results. Over time, these gentle ingredients can help to nourish and strengthen the skin, promoting a more youthful and radiant complexion. Natural ingredients are less likely to cause irritation or other skin sensitivities, and they work in harmony with the skin to deliver results.
The difference? Natural skincare works without compromising your health.
Before formulating with any new natural ingredients, we ensure that they are scientifically proven to be highly effective in skin care. We combine Australian natives and botanicals with natural active ingredients, which results in skincare that really works.
What about Organic Skincare?
The idea behind natural skincare is to use ingredients that are derived from nature and are free from synthetic or artificial ingredients. All organic ingredients are natural, but for an ingredient to be defined as truly ‘organic,’ it must be grown without the use of additives. The difference between natural skincare and organic skincare lies in how the ingredients are produced and sourced.
Our Saya skincare range has Australian Certified Organic (ACO) accreditation, ensuring that our products are composed solely of organic and natural components. This accreditation guarantees that our products are eco-friendly, devoid of dangerous chemicals, and encourage sustainable farming techniques.
