What Does Natural Mean?

What Does Natural Mean?

Natural. This word is attached to everything from, natural skincare, natural food, natural beauty, natural boobs, natural childbirth, natural lighting, natural water the list is endless.   One thing we know this word brings us feelings of trust, peace, cleanliness, it makes us feel better emotionally and contributes to our physical well-being.  We think of images like sunsets and warm breezes on the ocean, mountain springs, and fresh air filled with the smell of rain.  The word natural means different things to different people, for me it means naturally derived ingredients that work with your skin rather than against it, to nourish, repair, hydrate, and replenish. Its products are free of harmful chemicals, irritants, and preservatives, eco-friendly and cruelty-free.

Why Go Natural?

Natural skincare products are derived from mineral, plant, or animal by-products. There is currently no governing body that has specifically laid down any guidelines to classify products as ‘natural.’ Many skincare companies take advantage of these grey areas within natural skincare and classify their products as natural even if they use synthetic ingredients in their products. These marketing tactics make it difficult to understand what natural truly means so it is important to do your research ahead of time and look at the ingredients used in your products.

Defying Age has set its foundation on bringing you the highest quality natural skin care products that you can trust.  Natural skincare offers gentle results eliminating the irritation and harmfulness of commercially available products while reflecting on our natural values, returning our focus to ourselves and the environment.

Natural Products FAQs

When looking at your skincare ingredients, watch out for parabens (methyl, propyl, butyl, etc.) as well as synthetic fragrances and metals such as aluminum. These ingredients have harmful effects on your endocrine system and disrupt hormone imbalances if used on a regular basis for an extended period of time.

Defying Age specializes in bringing you 100% natural products so you can feel confident in what you are putting on your skin. Organic skincare products have stricter standards that they must follow and never use growth regulators or herbicides/pesticides in their products.

When a cream, serum, or lotion is applied to the skin, ingredients contained within will sink through the layers of the skin and into the bloodstream. When using synthetic, chemically infused creams, these harmful ingredients will not only harm your skin's outer layer but will seep into your bloodstream causing a direct effect on many of the body's processes. However, if you are to use a trusted, natural product without all of those harmful ingredients, the benefits of the product will not only help your skin, it will also avoid all negative health effects resulting in you feeling and looking your best.
