How Natural Cosmetics Benefit Dry Skin

Natural cosmetics are much more than meet the eye. With their natural ingredients, they pave the way to greater balance for dry and very dry skin. Plant oils strengthen the skin’s protective barrier with lipids similar to those of our skin and stimulate its self-regulating capabilities, leading to more effective moisture retention.

Our skin is a living organ. What could be better in supporting its natural functions than a skin care product made with natural ingredients?  Plant oils or lanolin, for example, are ideal in this regard. They are readily absorbed into the skin and replenish its protective barrier, as they are similar to the skin’s own lipids. As a result, our skin dries out less. It receives nourishment while maintaining its ability to breathe. 

Plant extracts can soothe and regenerate stressed skin
