More women these days areÂ becoming conscious of what they use on their skin and increasingly turning to skin care labels that are promoted asÂ organic, natural orÂ botanical.Â Â While itÂ makes sense to apply creams or lotions containing natural ingredients as opposed to synthetic raw materials, we should also be aware thatÂ some natural ingredients may be harder to preserve against microbial contamination and growth.
Hence, when buying organic or naturalÂ skin care products, you’ll alsoÂ want to find out if the natural ingredients have been wellÂ preserved to ensure that the product isÂ bioactive and effective.Â This is especially so as typical manufacturing procedures are heat reliant and overprocess biochemicals.Â This meansÂ they denature vital proteins and destroy the important constituents in nature-derived ingredients.
I have to admit that I wasn’t aware about this untilÂ IÂ read information from Astaraskincare.com, whichÂ specializes in the creation of professional organic skin care products to meet allÂ skin types;Â from oily, mature, dry skin,Â to even those withÂ serious skinÂ condition.Â
On top of having theirÂ formulasÂ derived fromÂ the finest botanical ingredientsÂ of theÂ plant kingdom, both above and below the sea, Astara employs only lower-temperature, efficacy-preserving processing methods, never exceeding 105Âº F (36Âº C) to ensure fresh, live, active biocultures to benefitÂ the skin most.Â
And this is important because Astara’s organic products include natural ingredients like Wild Tam, Green Tea,Â White Tea and most recently,Â Totarol,Â a naturally occurring plant extract with potent antioxidant and anti-bacteria activity.
So the next time you look at any skin care range that promotes itself as organic or natural, remember to check out their preserving processing methods and find out if you’re getting the best from the ingredients.
