All Natural Skin Care Products
make a lot of claims but do any of them really work any better than plain old soap and water and some lanolin? Problem is it would be very hard to tell if any of the products that claim to be natural work any better than anything else because no one is going to take the time to control for the variables and test all the options. One thing I think we can safely say is that natural ingredients are definitely better for you than those made in some factory somewhere. When it comes to skin care I have always paid attention to what is in a product and made sure most if not all of it was as close to natural as possible. And I say that because there are some ingredients in products that are either made in labs or derivatives of natural substances, like preservatives used in skin care. If you have no preservative(s) you would have to keep the skin care products in your refrigerator when you were not using them, not very convenient.
My wife and I decided to create our own brand of skin care with as close to all natural and organic products as possible. The line is called Mee Beauty and is not only made with organic and all natural products it is made with raw honey from our beehives.
One ingredient that seems to get so many questions is EDTA. We chose to use the least possible amount of EDTA as a preservative because that is what is needed to keep the product fresh after opening for at least 12 months. This is a quote from International Journal of Toxicology, “Based on the available data, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel found that these ingredients [EDTA] are safe as used in cosmetic formulations.” I have included the link to the research article above.
My wife Ruth has very sensitive skin and the creams and lotions we have created only make her skin soft and supple, no irritation at all. So for now, until we can find an even better and more natural alternative to EDTA that is what we will be using (although only in the smallest amounts necessary)
