Excellent Benefits of Plant-Based Ingredients
We’re all more conscious and aware of what we put into our bodies, so it’s only natural to become more conscious of what we use on our skin. Indeed, the skin is our largest organ, absorbing everything we expose it to, so it makes sense to use natural ingredients, and what better way to do this than using plant-based ingredients?
Plant-powered skin care is free of harsh chemicals that may be damaging to your delicate skin. For example, you’ll find zero parabens, phthalates, silicones, synthetic fragrances, SLS, SLES or oxybenzone in Balmy Fox skincare. Instead, our all-natural skincare delivers the nourishment and hydration your skin needs without harmful chemicals affecting the environment around us or our skin.
In addition, plant-based ingredients contain active compounds that you won’t find in chemical formulations, along with antioxidants that are essential in restoring, balancing and strengthening the body’s cells by combating free radicals. Similarly, natural plant-based ingredients help support the skin microbiome, promote balanced moisture, and improve overall skin health. And with so much goodness overflowing, our skin is better for using what nature has provided, and we can use plant-based ingredients without concern of nasty chemicals leaching into our water system—what could be better than that?
Thankfully, you don’t need a biology degree to understand and appreciate the power of plant-based ingredients. Using plants in our skincare offers more effective, skin-friendly moisturising remedies than those produced by brands still choosing to laden formulas with chemicals that ultimately leach into our waterways, harming our fragile environment. And, if you’re still not convinced that plant-based skincare is the best option, let’s look at some of the beautiful ingredients and see just how powerful they are:
Hemp Oil – Over 75% of hemp oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids such as linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) that our bodies can’t produce and which play a vital role in overall skin health, including combating ageing skin. As a result, it’s a true hero oil that works to soothe and hydrate inflamed, irritated skin. And, due to its extensive levels of these fatty acids, it’s also particularly beneficial for treating inflamed skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne rosacea, mainly down hemp’s high GLA content shown in studies to reduce inflammation.
Tea Tree Oil – Perhaps a more well-known ingredient is tea tree oil, a natural antiseptic used for centuries in traditional medicine.
The plant’s oil is shown to prevent and treat fungal and bacterial infections and promote healing. This versatile plant also possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it ideal for inflamed, sore, and split skin.
Sweet Almond Oil – Who doesn’t love an almond? They’re tasty, good for eating and great for your skin with several beneficial properties. For example, almond oil possesses antifungal and antibacterial properties and is brimming with antioxidant-rich vitamin E to fight free radicals. It’s also an excellent emollient moisturiser helping to balance moisture absorption and water loss. In addition, the oil delivers anti-inflammatory calmness, again perfect for those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema-related dermatitis.
Borage Oil – Similar to hemp oil, borage oil also contains high levels of GLA, which is shown to help maintain healthy skin by promoting cell growth and preventing inflammation. Yet another natural plant ingredient perfect for those annoying skin conditions such as psoriasis and ideal for sports athletes suffering sore skin and rashes caused by friction such as wetsuit rash.
