Skincare Products For Sensitive Skin: The Top 5 Ingredients To Look For
Posted on August 28 2016
Naturally occurring ingredients are most effective at treating and soothing sensitive skin, which is often too delicate for many of the harsh chemicals and ingredients found in conventional skin care products.
Read on for a list of our top five natural ingredients that soothe sensitive skin, while providing it with essential nutrients that brighten the complexion and improve skin health from the inside out.
Cacao Soothes By Stimulating Circulation
Cacao works to gently protect skin cells from premature oxidation or destruction. Clocking in at nearly twenty times more antioxidant activity than blueberries, this rich source of nutrients helps soothe sensitive skin by stimulating circulation, increasing blood flow and working to maximize the efficiency of the delivery route for all other essential nutrients. Cacao helps to deliver skin nourishing vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids.
Aloe Vera Calms Inflamed Skin
Found in Odacité Rejuvenating Cleanser
The ancient Egyptians called Aloe Vera the “plant of immortality.” The plant is famous for its gentle yet regenerative properties. This extract is ultimately soothing, and has a longstanding reputation as a cooling serum that calms inflamed skin. It delivers a plethora of nutrients (such as Vitamin C and E) to the skin, while simultaneously acting as a non-greasy moisturizer.
Jojoba Seed Oil Improves Dryness and Skin Texture
Found in Odacité Jojoba Beads Exfoliator
Jojoba Seed oil is a non-fragrant serum that improves dryness and skin texture, without clogging pores. It is a rich source of fatty acids, which are key players in skin rejuvenation and clarity. Jojoba seed oil’s natural anti-microbial properties work to actively clear away impurities without requiring the aid of any harsh ingredients that may irritate sensitive skin.
French Pink Clay Purifies and Renews All Skin Types
French Pink Clay is perfect for sensitive skin because it is known for drawing out and absorbing impurities (such as dirt, makeup, bacteria, oils, and dead skin cells) without drying the skin, as many other clays are known to do. Its gentle cleansing properties are not too harsh. The clay contains a high concentration of minerals that purify, renew, and refresh any skin type. It brightens the complexion using a gentle and luxurious blend of natural ingredients. This clay can be just as effective as exfoliation but without the negative side effects such as skin irritation.
Chamomile Minimizes Redness
Chamomile is known as one of the most soothing herbs in existence, and that reputation extends to its ability to treat the skin. Chamomile contains many powerful active ingredients that contribute to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties. Gentle Chamomile soothes skin, minimizes redness, and effectively calms and relaxes the nervous system.
These naturally gentle, yet nutrient dense ingredients, will work to actively improve the condition of even the most sensitive skin, soothing and calming the skin without any of the adverse side effects that come along with many chemically laden products. Give them a try and your skin will thank you.
