Are you new to the world of natural skincare? Then this article is perfect for you because you will learn tips and tricks about natural cosmetics and the switch to them. To start with: many people find the switch to natural skincare very pleasant right from the start, so you shouldn't and don't have to make any compromises!
What you need to know about natural skincare
Eliminating chemicals from one's skin care routine is like eliminating processed foods from one's diet. The body first goes through a kind of detoxification process to eliminate the toxins present in the products. Some people feel this, but most do not. Especially with personal care products, it is relatively uncomplicated.
The good thing about any switch to natural skincare products is that the skin always comes back to its natural balance. Especially when you simplify your skin care routine. Because often less can be more. Water-free natural cosmetics in particular are very gentle and beneficial for the skin and give it a natural glow.
The products melt into a nourishing oil when they come into contact with the body.
Why does the consistency of natural skincare products change?
As it is a natural product, each ingredient reacts differently to temperatures. shea butter for example, has its melting point between 32 and 42 degrees, coconut oil again already at 25 degrees. Almond oil is always in a liquid state. It is therefore a normal process that the consistency of the products changes depending on the temperature. Basically, you can say that knowing how to use it is quite simple. And otherwise you can always help yourself out: If the product is too hard, it can be placed in a warm place, such as a radiator. If it is too soft / liquid, place it in a cool place. The consistency has no influence on the quality of the product.
It is also totally normal that there can be slight differences in consistency, colour and smell between the individual batches. This is because we work with natural raw materials and they vary depending on the harvest.
How should I store my products?
Since the products are made from natural ingredients and contain no fillers, emulsifiers, preservatives & Co., there are a few simple rules to follow, just as with fresh food.
Try to protect the produce from heat and direct sunlight. Imagine an orange or a banana in summer, lying on a sunny windowsill, ripening quickly and then starting to rot. SHEA YEAH products don't get bad, but the natural consistency can change. Therefore, it is important not to expose them to direct sunlight but to store them at room temperature whenever possible.
What else do I need to be aware of?
In general it is advisable, especially if you have sensitive skin, to carry out a small allergy test on the underside of the forearm before use. This is done by applying a little of the product to the forearm. Then wait a few hours and observe whether redness or other irritations occur.
