Antioxidant Rich Makeup Fights Aging Aggressors

Botanical makeup is something new to the professional skincare scene!

For decades, cosmetics were drowning in chemical additives, synthetic oils, drying alcohols, and heavy silicones which helped the end consumer cover up their skin flaws; however, they felt worse about their skin. Over the last five years, there has been a gradual transition to products that have true nature in them and can move our skin towards being a healthy, happy organ. Makeup that contains some of nature’s superpowers has been starting to take the main stage in the market.

Increase In Consumer Demand For Botanical Antioxidant Products 

There has been a huge increase in consumer demand for products that contain nature’s special medicinal properties of botanical extracts. What are the sources of these ingredients? They are made from a plant’s roots, flowers, bark, or leaves. Teas, medicines, capsules, foods, creams, and the like are created with herbs, flowers, roots, spices, and plants.  Chemists use special solvents to free up the natural extracts from the plant’s parts and then utilize them in a skincare or cosmetic product. This process takes a very knowledgeable formulator who understands how to preserve the raw ingredients, transfer them into the correct concentration, and add to the right base for an accurate delivery into the skin. There are thousands of products out in the market claiming to have botanical extracts that have not been carefully sourced and processed to have very little to no skin benefits. So, choose your products wisely as in the beauty industry, we only strive to give our clients real skin benefits.

When sourced, extracted, and combined correctly, the power of botanicals can be superheroes for our skin. Most botanicals have endless antioxidant benefits which are gained through the plant’s sunlight exposure. This gives the plant strong protective abilities in fighting off free radicals. A small amount of an extract is all that is needed to see huge benefits and this works to our skin’s advantage as it can only absorb so much at a time.
