Certified Organic Skin Products

Official seal of the National Organic Program
Image via Wikipedia

Here is a list of recommended USDA certified organic skin products from the Organics Consumer Association. These companies have one or more products meeting the standards of USDA. Not all products in these lines are organic and if you know of a brand not listed, you can recommend it at the OCA website.

Don’t forget…many companies advertising their organic brands are using only some organic ingredients: it does not mean that the product is 100% organic. Certified organic makeup brands and certified organic skin products should have the USDA organic seal in order to be 100% organic.

And just because it is not certified organic, does not mean it is not natural or good for your skin. Did I lose anyone here?

10 More Natural Skin Products That Will Blow You Away

Awhile back I saw Demi Moore on the cover of People Magazine. WOW! Her skin care products must be amazing! She was recently quoted in Allure magazine: “My skin is very sensitive, so I use only fragrance-free, simple, pure products. And I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize—” Simple, pure products, in other words all natural.

Digging around a little, I found that she follows a raw food diet and at one time was a professed fan of marine20serum20lgnatural skin products made by Spa Technologies. I could have spent some crazy money on this line based on the ingredients however settled for the Marine Serum and Marine Repair Cream. Can you say addict? Will update on these products later.

100% pure seaweed concentrate with essential oils and antioxidants resurfaces skin and stimulates collagen synthesis. For all skin types in need of regeneration with Bio-fermented laminaria, porphyra red, and dellasaria red algae that nourish, add essential fatty acids, improve circulation, and restore minerals. Other ingredients include essential oils of grapefruit, tea tree, geranium, lavender, bitter orange, clary sage, juniper, and armoise that heal, balance, uplift, and soothe. Here are some other great natural skin products…..

Update:While I loved the Marine Serum and saw tightness in my skin, the Marine Repair Cream did not smell good and the smell stayed with me throughout the day. This is one downfall of some pure skin care products….there are no fragrances added to make it smell better. Some companies, like Eminence Organics, use natural essential oils for fragrance. These essential oils also boost your mood.

Best Self Tanning Lotion-No Nasty Orange Legs, No Nasty Smell

A few months back, I read a review of Idol Tan touted as the best self tanning lotion and although a little skeptical about the results, I went ahead and ordered it anyway.

Now that I have learned about the dangerous chemicals in beauty products especially self tanners and sunscreens that don’t protect against UV rays, I am very cautious about what I purchase. Oxybenzone, fragrance, and parabens are just some of the chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin.

Buying the best self tanning lotion before summer arrives is top priority for me as it is for thousands of others who fear skin damage from dangerous UV rays.

Here are just some of the features that seperate Idol Tan from other self tanning lotions:

  • It is made with all natural ingredients
  • Dries quickly and will not leave streaks
  • Gives a deep dark tan and no orange color
  • Easy to apply
  • Lasts about 5 days
  • Contains moisturizers
  • and doesn’t smell nasty!

After using self tanners for years, Idol Tan is definately the best self tanning lotion I have used thus far next to Lavera’s natural self tanner for your face. Idol Tan lasts longer than most other self tanning lotions, it’s easy to apply, dries quickly and most importantly I love the natural color it gives my skin.

Revive DNA Rejuvenation Cream Review

Let’s face it. Everyone wants to look younger and while we certainly can’t stop the aging process, with so many advances in skin care, we can sure as hell try and slow it down.

Dr. Sears Revive DNA Rejuvenation Cream can slow down the aging process and even reverse some signs of aging without pills, surgery or chemicals. This amazing natural skin cream reduces fine lines and wrinkles, firms skin and aids in age spot removal.

How does Revive Natural Skin Cream Work?

As toxins invade your skin, your skin’s DNA becomes damaged. Teprenone actively limits – even prevents – oxidative build up in your skin cells and can protect your DNA by helping your skin to produce a protein that protects cells against oxidant damage.

As you age, the level of Hyaluronic acid (HA) drops off. A popular cosmetic filler,  HA is needed for healthy skin as it has the ability to hold water and we all know that without enough hydration, your skin becomes dry, saggy and wrinkled.

But when your skin has enough HA, all that water plumps up your skin, enhancing volume and elasticity to restore a youthful look to your face.

Squalane, a natural lipid found in skin, decreases with age which makes your skin susceptible to sunburn and exposure to dangerous UV rays. This leads to those nasty age spots or sun spots that seam to appear out of nowhere.

Squalane produces a barrier against water loss, restoring moisture and suppleness to your face, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

It’s unfortunate, but women all over America and across the globe slather dangerous chemicals on their faces every day. The ingredients in a large number of so-called “anti-aging” skincare products can damage your DNA and prevent it from repairing itself.

Popular skin care ads and commercials will lead you to believe that you will achieve younger looking skin however, some popular skin care products include PABA, ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, and parabens. Learn more about how these skin care chemicals are destroying your skin.

You won’t find any parabens, carcinogens, pollutants or gasoline distillates of any kind in Revive DNA Rejuvenation Cream. Every single ingredient is natural and healthy to provide a younger, healthier, vibrant look to your skin… without worry.

Revive Skincare-New Natural Skin Cream Breakthrough

How would you like to slow down your skin’s aging process and get younger looking skin without surgery or prescription creams? What if I told you that there is an all natural skin cream that not only slows the aging of your skin but may also reverse signs such as age spots wrinkling and sagging?

For the past year, Al Sears, M.D. has been working on an anti-aging breakthrough called telomeres connected to your DNA. In short, maintaining these telomeres will keep your skin radiant and youthful. His new product, “Revive DNA Rejuvenation Cream” an all natural skin cream, protects DNA, stops aging and may extend the lifespan of your skin cells.

Revive Skin Care Cream testimonials….

In addition to extending the lifespan of your skin cells, Revive Skin Care Cream also contains several more ingredients that help you obtain younger looking skin including squalane and hyaluronic acid.

Squalane has a powerful hydrating action and soaks into the deepest layer of your skin for the most protection. At the same time, it produces a barrier against water loss. It restores moisture and suppleness to your face reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

The presence of hyaluronic acid is responsible for the fullness of skin and topically it can enhance both volume and elasticity.

More and more people are understanding the importance of choosing natural skin products. Many of the anti-aging creams on the market today contain harmful ingredients that can actually cause more damage to your skin’s DNA. Why pay upwards of $300 for skin creams containing chemicals that are damaging your skin?

When you use Pure Radiance Revive skincare you can rest assured that every single ingredient is natural, providing a healthy, vibrant look to your skin… with no cause for concern.

Organic Skin Cream Works

Every woman should add an organic skin cream to her daily skin care regimen. Over time, using the wrong skin cream, over exfoliating and using products that contain toxic ingredients could very well change your skin type for the worse. Some ingredients found in skin creams purchased at your local store, can dry the skin and some chemicals can actually create sensitive skin.

If you haven’t yet tried truly natural skin products because you’re not sure where to buy them, this site can help point you in the right direction. If you haven’t tried organic skin products because you think they are expensive, this site will show you that this is not necessarily the case.

There are hundreds of natural skin care companies and hundreds of organic skin creams available today. Unfortunately for now, most of the best are only sold through the internet. As more and more people are learning about the benefits of natural and organic, more and more companies are introducing new natural products to their skin care lines.

A good organic skin cream will:

  • Replenish the natural moisture of your outermost layer of skin
  • Not be heavy,oily, or greasy
  • Contain essential oils to enhance oil production
  • Contain the most potent anti-aging antioxidants
  • Be free of all chemicals

As for price? There are definitely expensive organic skin products on the market however, there are hundreds sold for far less than the average price you are paying now. In addition, how many of these so called anti-aging products are you buying and how often? How many are still sitting on your dresser half used because you did not see results and went on to the next big product? Yes, we’ve all been there.

Organic skin cream is produced with natural oils, flowers, herbs and fruits and free of parabens, mineral oil, petroleum and other harmful chemicals. Most importantly, organic works!

20 Benefits Of Pure Shea Butter

Another natural skin product that people rarely hear about, Pure Shea Butter, is a an ivory colored natural fat extracted from the seed of the African Shade Tree without the use of chemicals. A friend of mine had it on her dresser and claims it helped her sagging skin so I decided to dig a little deeper. I am shocked that I have never even heard about using this product for anti-aging as I am so involved with this natural skin stuff!

Shea Butter is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer and salve and, mostly used as a base for medicinal ointments, and has been claimed to have anti-inflammatory properties.

100% Pure Shea Butter is an all-natural vitamin A cream. It effectively lubricates skin improving skin’s elasticity, greatly reducing years of skin damage. Shea Butter has shown to be a superior moisturizer, with exceptional healing properties for the skin but best of all, it is known to improve eczema, burns, rashes, acne, severely dry skin, blemishes, dark spots, and skin discolorations.

In the US, some alter their Shea Butter in an attempt to give it a better fragrance and texture and others alter Shea Butter for economic reasons. Altering this Pure Shea Butter may disturb or in some cases destroy the natural integrity of the product. While the altered product may smell nice and cost less, it will have unfortunately lost the properties that people seek out for skin help and are not likely to give you the results mentioned in this article.

The following are only 20 of the benefits of Organic Shea Butter, one of the best natural skin products available today. It’s uses go far beyond this.

  • Dry skin
  • Skin rashes
  • Peeling skin
  • Blemishes
  • Itchy skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Shaving cream
  • Small skin wounds
  • Skin cracks
  • Tough or rough skin (on feet.)
  • Cold weather
  • Frost bite
  • Stretch mark prevention
  • Insect bites
  • Glowing skin
  • Muscle fatigue, aches and tension
  • Before and after strenuous exercise
