There has been a huge push lately towards choosing natural skin care products over their synthetic counterparts, and for good reason. Whether you’re new to the world of naturally-derived skin care ingredients or are an avid proponent of using them, you’ll love these four amazing benefits of natural skin care.
1. Eliminate Skin Irritation
Many people don’t realize that some of the synthetic ingredients in their skin care products could be worsening symptoms of dry, itching, or irritated skin. This is especially problematic if you’re struggling to manage a chronic condition like eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis, all of which can be triggered by harsh chemical skin care ingredients.
On the other hand, naturally-derived skin care products have been shown to be much gentler and safer on all skin types, including those with severely dry, cracked skin or sensitive skin.
2. Avoid Dangerous Side Effects
In addition to uncomfortable skin irritation, many of the most common ingredients found in skin care products can lead to serious side effects. Steroids, for example, are commonly prescribed to treat eczema, although they are also well-known to cause thinning skin and other unwanted effects (Indian Dermatology Online Journal).
Other harsh ingredients like parabens have been linked with an increased risk for certain types of cancers, reproductive problems, and increased sun sensitivity of the skin (Campaign for Safe Cosmetics). Needless to say, applying products that contain parabens directly to your skin can have detrimental effects on both your complexion and your overall health.
3. Nourish Your Skin
Another benefit of using topical products that rely on the natural power of plant-derived ingredients is that they can help to nourish, hydrate, and soothe your skin with a unique blend of essential micronutrients. Just some of these skin-friendly nutrients include vitamins A, C, and E–all of which are included in Epiphany Therapeutics products like Eksem Moisturizing Body Cream.
Because of this nourishing and healing quality, Eksem Moisturizing Body Cream is an excellent choice for anyone suffering from dry, itchy, flaky, or cracked skin conditions. Even if these symptoms are located on your face, Eksem is gentle enough to be applied on this delicate skin, while still being nourishing and powerful enough to deliver fast-acting, noticeable results.
4. Help the Environment
Finally, products that contain harsh chemical ingredients can pollute our environment and may be unsafe for the plants and animals that are exposed to them on a regular basis. Additionally, many skin care products contain animal by-products or are tested on animals, which raise serious concerns about animal welfare. By choosing only plant-based, naturally-derived products, you can not only help the look and feel of your skin but also help the environment.
Using natural skin care products can be just as effective, if not significantly more, than their harsh chemical counterparts. In fact, real-life customers who have already tried Epiphany Therapeutics products have seen amazing success that they just haven’t been able to achieve using any other product.
Gina, who had struggled with eczema for over 30 years, for instance, finally found lasting relief from dry, itchy skin conditions thanks to Eksem Moisturizing Body Cream. Here’s what she had to say:
“After years of suffering with the terrible itching and redness, I finally found a product that works for eczema: Eksem Moisturizing Body Cream.
“I have had eczema for 30 years, and it has been primarily on my legs. The very worst of the condition has been horrible itching, most notable through the night. With the consistent itch, my sleep is regularly interrupted, perhaps the worst side effect of this disease. Nothing has ever touched the itching, and though I have tried not to scratch, I simply cannot help it. The result of scratching is that the redness deepens, cracks and ultimately leaves a scar.
“A friend told me about Eksem and I started using it right away. Almost immediately, the itching subsided–immediate means the first day! I applied the cream 3 to 5 times per day for the first week as my friend suggested, and then reduced to 2 to 3 times per day. All of my symptoms quickly subsided, and then disappeared. I still apply to avoid the return of eczema and I credit this with keeping me symptom-free! Symptom-free from eczema for the first time in 30 years!
“I heard about the new $37,000 per year drug for eczema. Once I got my mind past the price, then the side-effects, it takes 12 weeks to work. Eksem gave me immediate relief, so why bother? I still have my scars to remind me how things used to be before Eksem. I’m glad those days are gone.”
