Natural body care products can be found everywhere you look. But what does “natural” really mean? There is no legal definition of natural but there are a few things you can look for.

Why you should care

In your daily body care routine, you might use anywhere from two to a dozen different products. All these ingredients are absorbed by your skin and end up in your bloodstream so the more you know, the better.

Red flags in natural body care

  1. The term “made with” natural ingredients. That rarely means ALL natural.
  1. The term “fragrance”. This often means chemicals. Look for the phrase essential oils, or scent. Companies don’t have to disclose what is in a “fragrance”. You deserve to see ALL the ingredients so you can decide.
  1. Works “instantly”. You may be trying to avoid dry skin on your body, but don’t expect it to happen overnight. There may be improvement right away. But for healthy glowing skin, you must use a product consistently as directed for a period of time to see results.

Good signs in natural body care

  1. Certified by … Make sure you’ve heard of the third party (EWG Verified, MADE SAFE Certified, Leaping Bunny, USDA Organic). This means the brand has submitted proof to back up their claims.
  1. Only scented with essential oils. You can see this on the list of ingredients on the label.
  1. Watch it being made. Look at social media to see the formulator, the founder, and how they make the products.

Embrace self-love and radiant skin

We often put others’ needs before our own. The happiest, most productive people make sure to take care of themselves, so they have the energy to help others.

Now that you know what to look for to find natural body care products you can trust, you can give your body the TLC it needs. You can feel good about your body care journey and know that you deserve to have healthy and radiant skin.
