What Natural Preservatives Are In Edye's Naturals Products?
Last article, we discussed how conventional skincare products contain artificial preservatives. We reviewed some of the most commonly used artificial preservatives (parabens, formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, BHA and BHT, Benzophenone and derivatives, and phenoxyethanol), and took a look at the impact these chemicals have on our health. Not only have artificial preservatives been shown to cause skin irritation, they also have system-wide effects, which can create imbalances in reproductive, endocrine, nervous system, and general cell health. The reason these system-wide imbalances can occur from a topical application is because what you put on your skin can absorb into your bloodstream, making its way into your body.
At Edye’s Naturals, we think of our products as food for your skin. All the ingredients in Edye’s Naturals products are natural, organic, and selected to supply nutrients to your skin. At Edye’s Naturals, we use all organic, natural preservatives to keep you safe.
Let’s take a look at the carefully selected natural preservatives, which help give Edye’s Naturals products a shelf-life without compromising on your health:
Organic Rosemary Oil: This oil acts as a natural preservative. It is high in vitamin B and other antioxidants, which help to extend shelf life and benefit your skin by protecting it from free-radicals. Organic rosemary oil also contains rosmarinic acid, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Organic rosemary oil also helps to increase circulation, which promotes skin healing. Another benefit of organic rosemary oil is that it acts as a natural bug repellent.
Organic Peppermint Oil: Organic peppermint oil is another natural preservative that offers benefits to the skin. Organic peppermint oil has natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This oil is high in vitamin C, magnesium, and copper. Organic peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe the skin. It also offers itch-relief.
Organic Lemon Oil: This oil is high in vitamin C and other antioxidants. Organic lemon oil is a natural antimicrobial. Along with acting as a natural preservative, organic lemon oil also helps to reduce damage caused by free radicals.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Did you know that extra virgin olive oil has natural antimicrobial properties? These antimicrobial properties, along with its high antioxidant content, give extra virgin olive oil some natural preservative qualities. Organic extra virgin olive oil nourishes the skin with vitamins A and E, and offers deep miniaturization.
As you can see, not only are the above natural preservatives safe, they benefit your skin. Edye’s Naturals recently released a new website, which dedicates a whole page to learning more about our ingredients: check it out here. Remember to be mindful of the products you choose to put on your skin. Conventional skincare products contain artificial preservatives, which not only can negatively impact your skin, but your overall health. At Edye’s Naturals, we don’t compromise on our ingredients, and that goes for the preservatives we choose to use.
