What confuses people, though, are the variety of definitions and wordings that we can find in the branch. Words like natural, organic or vegan, and their impact on skin and environment are not clearly defined. Therefore the simplest and most convincing description for natural skincare is when we say that “skincare is made of ingredients available in nature”. Because the formulations may include raw materials like berries, flowers, herbs and other botanical sources.
Good to know as well, natural is not necessarily vegan, as many natural products include animal-derived ingredients like beeswax. INARI Arctic Beauty products are vegan without exceptions, we do not include animal-derived materials. Most importantly, our certified organic cosmetics ingredients come from organic farming, where no pesticides or fertilizers have been used. We include in our skincare not only certified organic ingredients but also many wild harvested ingredients from beyond the Polar Circle that are as pure and natural as can be.
Our passion is to offer effortless skincare from purest and natural ingredients. For a better understanding of what natural means, we have listed the most important reasons why we believe natural skincare is the best choice for healthy skin.
Most importantly, natural cosmetics manufacturers do not use mineral oil, parabens, or other harsh chemicals. As a result, there is less exposure to toxins. Consequently, we aim to select raw materials that are non-irritating and non-comedogenic. Furthermore, natural ingredients hydrate the skin without clogging the pores. Therefore natural skincare products offer gentle care and are an effective support to the health of the skin at every age.
Natural skincare stimulates and strengthens our natural skin functions, rather than displacing physiological processes. In addition, natural or organic cosmetics helps to provide your skin with additional nourishment like vitamins, oils, antioxidants and linoleic acid. A high antioxidant level can help ward off early signs of ageing.
Even more, high-quality skincare with natural ingredients doesn’t harm the environment. Hence, we can avoid using micro plastics which is so harmful to our ecosystem. While mineral oil is a limited resource, wild-picked berries for example are renewable plants. With rationally resourced ingredients we can effectively replace synthetic ingredients and at the same time spare the sources of nature.
We all love animals and it is not understandable why still cosmetics supplies are tested on animals in some parts of the world. It’s a sign of organic skincare that it’s cruelty-free. Whereas, natural cosmetics can be based on products from animals like beeswax or milk, vegan cosmetics is completely free from animal-derived ingredients. You can enjoy your skincare and at the same time lower your footprint without having a bad conscience.
Finally, natural and organic cosmetics don’t include strong artificial perfumes. Strong fragrances can trigger acute migraine attacks, fragrance allergies are widespread. While natural scents can be strong too people often do not react as much towards natural perfumes.
