We like to think of plants as our natural pharmacy.
When you think about it, for thousands of years plants were our medicine!
Our earliest human ancestors found plants to heal wounds, cure diseases, and ease troubled minds.
I’m not saying everything is curable using plant based medicine, as evidently we have been able to prolong our lifespan due to advancement with technology and science. However, I don’t think we can forget what nature has provided us and should use it where we can.
Plants are rich in natural antioxidants, vitamins and emollients, all of which are known for their exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising properties.
At Dermatec Skincare, we believe nature has all the secrets we need for inner and outer beauty starting with natural skincare.
Many skincare products have been produced using natural plant extract and others have been produced using synthetic compounds.
Chemists sometimes find synthetic versions do not carry the same therapeutic effects or may have negative side effects when used without the whole plant source.
The active components of plant extracts are generally available in relatively lower doses compared to synthetic variations which makes it easier for the body to process and absorb.
Essentially, a plant based product is kinder on the skin than a synthetic alternative.
This becomes important when we talk about plant based skincare ingredients as an ingredient derived directly from a plant, like an oil or essential oil, will have a variety of beneficial compounds in a natural balance rather than a more potent variation (i.e synthetically made) may carry some nasty side effects.
With plant based ingredients and quality products you can get the benefit from an array of nourishing and naturally occurring compounds that work together to promote health and healing.
