Have you ever wondered why most skin care creams and lotions are white?
Apex, NC (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Most natural ingredients, like essential oils (cold pressed from plants), herbs and botanical extracts are not naturally white… or clear in color. So it begs the question, how are all these non-white inputs combined to create a pure white and silky lotions and creams?
The answer: Pure white so called natural skin care products, or the ingredients used in them are highly processed with the use of chemicals and bleaching agents. We already know that white bleached flour is chemically processed, stripped off its nutrients and should be avoided. Isn’t the same valid for skin care products? Especially when University study shows that over 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed and ends up in our blood stream!
Additionally, these ingredients, although derived from plant, are isolated from its natural source in a laboratory and synthetically mass produced. When you tear apart a naturally occurring compound, you are necessarily stripping it of its inherent balance and natural synergy. Isolated, it may give you a certain desired benefit, but the price is many, sometimes hidden, undesirable effects. In addition, synthetically producing these chemicals alters its bio-availability. So the next time you find yourself staring at a perfectly white and silky cream, that claims to be all natural, ask yourself if the product matches the claim.
Selecting product claiming to be natural isn't enough. You must read the ingredient label and choose the formulations that use full spectrum (whole) botanical ingredients. Products must also be pH balanced and optimized for maximum bio-availability and efficacy. In avoiding all harmful additives.
OM Ayurvedic products provide the utmost safety and take pride in the natural hues and earthy fragrances inherent in their unbleached, unprocessed, and unadulterated products.
