Natural vs. Synthetic

Natural vs. Synthetic - Do you know what’s in your skincare?


In a world where we are inundated with choices, how do we discern the difference between natural and synthetic when it comes to skin care products? The difference between the two comes down to ingredients and how each product is made.
Synthetically produced skincare products claim to contain many of the beneficial ingredients that natural products do, however these products are created in a lab, with ingredients derived from the real thing.


Because synthetic ingredients are just that—synthetic, a larger amount of the source plant product they’re derived from is needed to produce a smaller amount. This can take a huge toll on the environment. Synthetically produced skincare contain chemicals that your body isn’t used to, so they can be very harsh irritants and may cause redness or even allergic reactions.


As we all know, chemicals and lab created products can also have negative long term health effects, and some of those effects are still unknown or unclear. Reduce the risk of this exposure by steering clear of ingredients with names that you’re not familiar with.


With organic skincare, you know exactly what you’re getting, the ingredients are familiar and can be found in nature. Because organic skincare contains natural ingredients that haven’t been created in a lab, they’re easier for your body to absorb, allowing your skin to reap huge benefits.


Natural skincare products are packed with nutrients that are critical to optimal skin health. These include, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, Resveratrol, Alpha Hydroxy Acids and many more, all straight from their most natural source. Because these products were created in the most natural way, they are free of harsh agents and irritants that can cause skin damage and redness.


At the end of the day, your skincare regimen is your choice. Do your research and look carefully at ingredient lists when you’re choosing which products are right for you. Your skin will thank you and you’ll be rewarded with happy, healthy skin that truly glows from the inside out. At One Oak Organics, we believe that natural is always better.
