Sure you can slather chemical compounds on your skin and hope for the best, but many women would prefer not to. These chemicals can sometimes be just as harsh as Botox and a salon grade chemical peel. There are much healthier alternatives and they come from all natural ingredients.

What’s more, when these all natural ingredients come from organically grown produce, you can be certain that they are completely free of artificial perfumes, dyes and many pest control poisons that are usually sprayed on non-organic produce.

Cancer has been linked to many pesticides and avoiding products that originate from things in nature that were sprayed with pesticides decreases your risk factors.

Some of these organic skin care ingredients to look for are lemon oil, coconut butter, avocado oil, and jojoba. These may sound like buzz words since many a shampoo or skin lotion uses infusions of these items, but if these are not the primary ingredients in your products they probably are not real organic products.

Skin Care Ingredient #1
Lemon oil is a natural astringent and cleansing agent, pulling dirt from the pores as it tightens and seals them up.

Skin Care Ingredient #2
Coconut butter is a very rich body smoother and skin-softening agent, and if pieces of the shell are ground into it as well it makes for an excellent exfoliate.

Skin Care Ingredient #3
Avocado oil is an antioxidant and a moisturizer as well. Its high concentrates of vitamin E help the skin regenerate, bringing a healthy and more youthful appearance to the skin.

Skin Care Ingredient #4
Jojoba oil
replaces many harsh chemicals such as cetyl alcohol in perfumes, shampoos, and cosmetics. Its high fat percentage allows it to maintain organic skin care products’ shelf life for a long time, and it makes for the perfect natural preservative of healthy cells.

Skin Care Ingredient #5
Apricot
is another natural ingredient with fantastic benefits for our skin. Apricot fruits right down to the pits can be used for facials and body lotions because their high concentrate of vitamin C helps restore tired skin and aid the cycle of skin cell formation and the retention of vitamin D and calcium, both necessary for healthy skin, teeth hair and bones.

A good general rule to follow when shopping for organic skin care products is to see if you can pronounce the ingredients. If you struggle saying a word in the bottle, you probably don’t want it on your skin.
