The industry for skin care and beauty products has evolved from its inception thousands of years ago – from milk baths that Cleopatra would soak in to retain her beauty, to charcoal sticks used as eyeliner in Japan by Geishas. Only one thing continues to link centuries old beauty secrets with current trends for our skin – natural skin care and natural products have circled back as the #1 option for consumers.
Let’s dive into how beauty has transformed yet remained consistent when it comes to natural skin care ingredients and why it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Beauty Then & Now
While we may not be continuing some of the ancient beauty hacks for safety purposes, let’s focus on the last 50 years in beauty and why what was considered top selling products are now being tossed in the trash. Drugstore skin care was acceptable even by the wealthy as high-quality products, all the way back in the 1950s when beauty ads were worshipped by every woman around the world.
But the increase in petroleum and mineral oil in skin care created more faux-pas than the beauty industry thought it would, and with way too many adverse effects that came to light in the last ten years. Harsh chemicals ruled skin care for a very long time until research and scientists learned more about the long-term effects of them on the skin.
Trying to reverse damage was impossible with parabens and harsh fragrances, along with the other bad ingredients mixed into creams and lotions. People were having the hardest time finding a product that worked for their skin and didn’t create the wrong result. Skin is sensitive and delicate, which would seem to call for gentle products to care for it. It was not the case for decades as the main staples of beauty products were advertised with these types of ingredients that “worked wonders”.
Now, the beauty industry has tapped natural products again and the benefits of having them in their skin care lines. Vitamins, honey, herbal ingredients – these all have tremendous benefits for your skin without the problems that mineral oil can cause. Just like with organic foods being the go-to grocery items, the same applies to natural skin care. Why would you put chemicals in your body, let alone on your body?
Skin care lovers know the importance of hydrating and nourishing their skin, to keep up with the free radicals in the air and daily stressors. Many beauty lines have since taken up the natural path for their products and campaign to showcase the actual results of chemical-free skin care. Let’s venture further and discover what it can actually do for your skin.
Benefits of Manuka Honey in Skin Care
Manuka honey is one of the forefront ingredients in natural beauty products. The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and healing benefits of manuka honey have caused a surge in adding it to skin care. Ingesting it has wonderful benefits, but so does applying it to your skin. Applying honey to your skin? It’s not quite like how you’re picturing it, don’t worry.
Let’s take for instance, that if you have a harsh skin rash like eczema or psoriasis, or just dry skin, manuka honey skin care can immensely help relieve it. Manuka honey also has amazing anti-aging benefits, stimulating the production of collagen and regenerating properties to allow skin to heal itself. It naturally has a blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids in it, further giving your skin a natural boost. Using a lotion or moisturizer with manuka honey has incredible hydrating benefits, keeping your skin soft and supple. This type of cream can truly deliver results, unlike your regular drugstore lotion – and that’s a promise.
Wild Natural’s Skin Care
Many beauty brands offer natural ingredients in their skin care lines, but that also means a higher price tag for natural. Are all skin care lines expensive? Not at all! Wild Naturals was created for the affordable and natural ingredients listed in it, without the heavy price tag. Most products are made with water, diluting the potency of the mixture and added as a filler so not as much product is put in each container (a very typical standard in the beauty industry to handle consumer levels while still turning a profit for themselves). Wild Naturals is one of the few brands that uses no water in its products, instead, our first ingredient is organic aloe vera!
We pride ourselves on our list of ingredients and what is NOT added to our products, such as mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, dyes, and fragrances. All of these will cause a negative effect to your skin and Wild Natural’s honor and namesake is about helping to heal and relieve your skin, not make it worse. Not only is our ingredient list top notch, but our products are pH balanced as well, soaking straight into your skin for ultimate results without disrupting the natural pH levels of your skin.
Browse our shop for manuka honey rich products and be happy with the price, not the upcharge for the name of the brand! Wild Natural cares more for the health of your skin and achieving the beautiful, hydrating results you want, nothing else!
