It is so common for women today to seek natural skincare products in order to maintain healthy and radiant skin. There has been a lot of buzz about natural skincare recently, and for the right reasons. Aside from providing numerous benefits for the skin, many natural skincare products are also sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives to conventional skincare as well. However, to further enhance the efficacy of these products, the incorporation of "actives" plays a vital role. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of using natural, plant-based skincare products and go into how specific actives, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl, and Retinol, elevate their results to bring about not only beneficial nutrients to your skin, but transformative effects as well!

The Power of Plant-Based Skincare

First, let's discuss why choosing a natural skincare line is so important! Natural, plant-based skincare products are formulated with ingredients derived from nature such as botanical extracts, essential oils, and fruit enzymes. These products offer many advantages over their synthetic counterparts. On top of that, these products are gentle, nourishing, environmentally friendly, and can be beneficial to your overall health. Let's take a deeper dive into why choosing a natural skin care line is so beneficial. 

1. Gentle and Nourishing For The Skin:

Plant-based ingredients are generally gentle on the skin and less likely to cause irritation or allergies unlike chemicals or harsh ingredients may. As well as nourishing, hydrating, and protecting the skin, they are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Plant-based ingredients are naturally derived from fruits, vegetables, and other sources. They can improve skin tone and texture, reduce wrinkles, and even fight free radical damage. They are also sustainable and environmentally friendly. Take a look at our “Food in Skincare - Seasonal Favorites That Are Almost Good Enough to Eat!” article and dive deeper into some of the benefits of food in our skincare.

2. Sustainability and Environmentally Friendly:

Natural skincare products are often made using sustainable practices and biodegradable packaging, which reduces their impact and carbon footprint on the environment. By choosing plant-based alternatives, we contribute to our planet's preservation. Here at RENU Naturals, we're committed to reducing our carbon footprint which is why we've partnered with 1% for the Planet Global Organization.

3. Overall Health

A natural skin care routine addresses your overall skin health rather than just addressing specific concerns. Skincare products containing natural and plant-based ingredients to promote your skin's own healing abilities, resulting in a healthier appearance. Furthermore, our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. Our bloodstream absorbs anything put onto our skin, so it's possible to experience more than skin problems in the future if using products that have harmful ingredients. It is beneficial not only for your skin, but for your overall health to use a natural skincare product. If you want to look further into why choosing natural ingredients over synthetic matters, look at our "Why Choose Natural Ingredients over Synthetic When It Comes To Skincare" article!

Plant Based With Power- Actives in Natural Skincare :

While natural skincare products offer numerous benefits just as they are, the addition of "actives" takes them to the next level! Actives are potent, safe ingredients that target specific skin concerns and deliver visible results such as hyaluronic acid, matrixyl, retinol, and active peptides. Let's take a look deeper look into these powerhouse actives that play a role in our skin care products.

1. Hyaluronic Acid - Retain Moisture

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that retains moisture. When incorporated into plant-based skincare products, it attracts and binds water molecules, providing hydration and plumping of the skin. This active ingredient helps reduces fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin smoother and more supple.
For those reasons, you can find this powerhouse active in our Luxury Face Oil, Repair Eye Cream, and Vitamin C Glow Serum. This will boost hydration to the skin, making it appear smoother and plump.

2. Matrixyl - Promoting Firmness and Elasticity

As a peptide complex, Matrixyl promotes skin firmness and elasticity by stimulating collagen production. Matrixyl is an effective way to combat aging signs, such as sagging skin and elasticity loss, in natural skincare products. The active ingredient improves the texture of the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, resulting in a youthful appearance. Matrixyl is widely used in many skincare products and is known for its effectiveness in improving skin texdture and reducing the signs of aging. It is also gentle on the skin and suitable for all skin types.
This is why you’ll find Matrixyl in our Vitamin C Glow Serum. It helps to boost collagen production and promote skin firmness. Pro-aging skincare is what we're all about, and we love keeping your skin radiant, glowing, and healthy!

3. Retinol - Stimulating Collagen 

Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, stimulates collagen synthesis and speeds up cell turnover. Retinol is often derived from natural sources, such as rosehip seed oil or carrot extract, in plant-based skincare. It reduces hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scars, resulting in a smoother, more even complexion. It can also help to reduce the appearance of age spots. Regular use of retinol can keep skin looking younger for longer.
You’ll find retinol in our Repair Eye Cream to promote collagen, reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines. You’ll also find a natural form of Retinol known as “Bakuchiol” in our Beauty Balm With Bakuchiol! Bakuchiol is a gentle and safe botanical alternative to Retinol that offers anti-aging benefits and improves skin firmness, tone and overall lifting

4. Active Peptides - A Multi-Benefit Active!

Another beneficial ingredient in skincare is active peptides. These are known as amino acids that are formulated to provide many benefits to your skin. Benefits such as boosting collagen production, improving elasticity in the skin, and even reducing the appearance of wrinkles. These small size molecules can penetrate your skin effectively making it easy to give your skin all the intended benefits of the active peptides!
That's why you'll find active peptides in our RENU Pure Radiance Moisturizer. Our nourishing moisturizer is rich in active plant-based ingredients and packed full of vitamins, plant lipids and botanicals that will keep your skin nourished!
