5 BENEFITS OF USING PLANT-BASED SKIN CARE

Have you ever enthusiastically ordered a skin care product that ended up damaging your skin? Are you confused about choosing the right product for your skin? From the use of natural ingredients to chemically formulated actives, skin care trends are evolving every day. But with the growing awareness, people are becoming more conscious about what goes on their skin. Whether for diet or for skin, plants have always been one of the healthiest and most effective options. Since skincare is something we generally follow on a daily basis, being aware of the  ingredients you’re applying to your skin is essential.

There was a time when chemical formulations like Salicylic Acid, Chemical AHAs, BHAs, and Retinol were available only on prescription. But with evolving trends, they are now easily accessible for everyone, with little information about the side effects and the damage. Due to this, there has been a surge in skin irritation and other side effects. To overcome this, we decided to tilt towards highly effective yet skin-friendly alternatives with plant-powered science.

What is plant-powered skin care? 

From ancient Indians, who reaped the benefits of Ayurveda to the Greeks, who relied on olive oil for flawless skin, skin care has come a long way.

Natural, plant-based skin care is revolutionizing the very essence of how people treat their skin and ruling the skin care market. Plant-powered skin care products are made from plant-based materials instead of synthetic ingredients such as petroleum derivatives oranimal byproducts. Because these products use plant-based materials like Brown Rice Extract and Liquorice Extract rather than artificial chemicals, they tend to be more natural and are less likely to cause adverse reactions than their chemical counterparts.

Synthetic ingredients in skin care products isolate one or more substances when used in higher concentrations. Even though your skin feels supercharged with the use of such chemicals, you will still be exposing your skin to highly-concentrated chemicals, that can cause a lot of damage if used improperly. 

 Here are a few benefits of using plant-based skin care products:  

1. SAFE TO USE: 

 Plant-powered skin care elixirs like Kimirica’s Skin Radiance Serum are carefully designed and are free of harsh chemicals that may damage your gentle skin. They have active ingredients like Organic Plant-based AHA and Turmeric Root Extract that work naturally on the skin are less likely to cause adverse effects.

They have active compounds like plant-based Oligopeptide-68, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Manjistha Extract that most synthetic skin care products lack which is why they are less likely to cause adverse effects on the skin.

2. PROMOTE HEALTHIER SKIN: 

Natural Oils like Squalane Oil, are rich in antioxidants and are also essential to restore, balance, strengthen the body’s cells by combating free radicals.

The ingredients in plant-based skin care support the skin microbiome, promote balanced moisture, and improve skin health. 

3. NATURAL SOLUTION FOR SKIN PROBLEMS: 

Fats and acids from plants assist in calming acne, fighting skin’s dryness, combating oiliness, smoothening scars, and increasing skin’s elasticity. 

4.PREVENTS LONG-TERM DAMAGE: 

Hydrocolloids (naturally occurring polymers) add a subtle texture to your skin care products.

The presence of these polymers in plant-based skin care products eliminates the need of adding synthesized polymers and petrochemicals and prevents the long-term damage caused by them. 

5. GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH:

Your skin absorbs everything that you apply to it with pathways like intracellular and transcellular mechanisms. Skin care products laced with chemicals get absorbed by the bloodstream too and can cause damage over time.

Thankfully, plant-based skin care products like Golden Jojoba Oil extracted directly from the pressing of Jojoba seeds, are made using natural, plant-based materials that are free of such chemicals. As a result, you won’t have to worry about any skin care-related health issues. Products that are closer to the Earth not only have a positive effect on your body but on the environment as well. If you too wish to adopt a conscious approach to skin care, you should switch over to plant-powered, organic skin care products.
