What to Look For in a Natural Face Cream

Cosmetic companies literally make millions of dollars a year selling face creams of one sort or another to consumers who rely heavily on those same companies’ marketing campaigns to decide on their purchase. But deciding what type of natural face cream product is best for you involves more than watching or reading a commercial made by the same cosmetic companies trying to sell you their products.

If you are like most women, you use various creams to keep your skin soft, supple and youthful looking. But do you know what the ingredients are? Are you positive that these skin care products are healthy for your skin in the long term? Most facial creams show immediate results by producing healthy looking skin. However, if you are using products laden with chemicals, you are ultimately causing your skin more harm than good.

A natural products are just that: natural. They consist of natural sounding ingredients such as fruit extracts and oils. A natural face cream will feel good on your skin immediately and will continue treating and improving your skins good health between uses. One company that produces quality natural skin care products is also one that is not heavily advertised.

That does seem paradoxical, but since they spend less on marketing and commercials, they’re able to spend more on research and development of face creams that ultimately consist of the finest all-around materials made by the best manufacturer on this planet: Mother Nature. Skin care creams made from superior, organic, naturally occurring materials are the best products for those of us looking to take care of our skin with the added bonus of reducing the signs of aging.

You can locate high quality natural face cream products on the Internet. These face creams contain Xtend-TK which is very similar to protein and effective in giving your skin a fresh, rejuvenated look and feel. Also look for products that contain Maracuja, a fatty acid from a Brazilian passion fruit extract. Also, Babassu, another Brazilian fruit which is a natural wax product and helps to retain moisture and finally, Natural Vitamin E which is a very potent antioxidant.

It would seem face creams would be a simple purchase after reading as much as you can about the different ingredients, as well as the reputations of the companies that produce the products. Be wary of a company that supports the prevention of dangerous diseases, but produces personal care cosmetics that contribute to the same diseases they advertise that they are helping to fund research for. Things like parabens are believed to contribute, however minimally, to the formation of breast cancer tumors. Yet major manufacturers proudly display the “pink ribbon” and still include these ingredients.

To present a fair and balanced perspective on face creams, I have to also remind you that there is more to keeping your skin healthy than just a good quality, natural products. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water and are eating lots of organic fruits and vegetables. Those tactics combined with organic face creams will be your best bet towards avoiding sagging and dull skin.
