With consumers being more aware about what they put on their skin and what not to put on their skin, cosmetic companies are turning to more organic and natural products. Many of these products contain natural, whole-food compounds not that different from what one might find on the kitchen table!
Think about super pure, super fresh ingredients, often grown on the premises where products are created. This allows availability of not only the freshest ingredients, but the inclusion of targeted superfood ingredients as well. This will allow the company to monitor the amount of products grown as well as make sure that no chemicals are used during the growing of these superfoods.

Please Take Caution
When switching to new skin ranges, your skin can break out because it is getting rid of all the chemicals and toxins that have been sitting in the pores for a while. If your skin starts to get an allergic reaction, rash, hot or any other symptoms, please stop using the product right away, wash your face with cold water and apply an Aloe Vera gel to sooth the skin.
If you have any food allergies, do not apply the product to your skin at all. You will have a reaction as well. If you do not know you have a food allergies, test a bit of the product on your skin and leave it for 24 hours. If you have a rash, then you are allergic otherwise it is safe to use on your entire body.

As a skincare therapist and holistic health practitioner, I always believe that the fresher the ingredients, the better it is for your skin and body. Nowadays, the main cause of breakouts and skin irritations in products is all the chemicals that have been placed in the product to make it last longer. I have never seen an apple last for 6 months, so why should the product that contains apples last that long?
