Why You Should Switch To Natural Skincare

It’s like a sponge, and it also soaks up your skincare. That’s why we’re so passionate about natural skincare, and creating products that work with your skin, rather than slathering on a cocktail of chemicals.

If you haven’t gone au naturale already, here’s why using better natural skincare products is the key to healthy, beautiful skin.

They’re free from toxic ingredients

Most traditional skincare products are full of toxic ingredients that make them smell better, foam up quicker or last longer. But they also seriously stress out the skin, and can leave you battling delightful skin issues like dullness, dryness, redness or blemishes. They may also exacerbate any existing skin conditions, like rosacea or acne.

These are some of the most common culprits and where they’re found:

  • Parabens — cleansers and self-tanning products
  • Phthalates — mists and moisturisers
  • Formaldehyde
  • Polyethylene — scrubs and exfoliators
  • Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) — cleansers and acne treatments
  • Synthetic fragrances — moisturisers and eye creams

Along with being the furthest thing from natural, these man-made ingredients increase your toxic load. Thanks to our modern lifestyles, our body already has to work hard to filter out pollution, smoke and other irritants every day. Natural skincare and body care is much easier to process, which means your body can get back to filtering out those external toxins faster. 

They’re gentler on the skin

Is natural skincare better? Biologically, the answer is yes. Our body wasn’t built to process chemicals, which is why commercial skincare can lead to a host of skin issues. For example, parabens can cause rashes and redness, and artificial fragrances can make your skin more sensitive. 

On the other hand, our body doesn’t just like natural products — it craves them! They nourish your skin and keep it feeling healthy and hydrated, and they don’t contain harsh or irritating ingredients that might leave your skin feeling tight or flaky. Instead, they work to calm inflammation and bring your skin back into balance. For that reason, they’re suitable for all skin types, including acne-prone and sensitive skin. 

They’re proven to be effective

Gone are the days when natural skincare claims didn’t quite match up. The industry has high standards, and the best natural skincare brands pour a lot of time and effort into clinical research to make sure their products do what they say they do. 

At Ena, our range heals and restores the skin with pure botanicals and essential oils. Every ingredient serves a purpose, so you might be wondering, what natural skin care products are the best? In our bestselling body scrub, Himalayan pink salt and lemon myrtle detoxify the skin and slough off dead skin, and eucalyptus assists in circulation and is also an anti-inflammatory helping reduce redness.  For the body wash, lemon myrtle and mandarin deeply cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils, while grapefruit leaves it feeling silky-soft. And when you swipe on the lip balm, cocoa butter soothes the skin and jojoba oil, also an anti-inflammatory, calms your lips by repairing dry and damaged skin.

They’re better for the environment

Last but not least, natural skin care products are eco-friendly. The manufacturing process is a lot “cleaner,” and that means less chemicals end up in our soil, crops and waterways. If you want to do your bit for the planet, switching to natural skincare is a great place to start!
