Skin, the body’s largest organ, provides many different functions that encourage overall body health and wellness. Maintaining skin barrier health is critical in combating pre-mature aging as well as a critical contributor that provides an added layer of protection from disease and harmful elements that pose numerous risk factors.
With more awareness of the abundant benefits that plant- based diets and lifestyles provide, an onset of a consumer demand for plant-based skincare products continues to increase. This group has an expectation of label transparency that contains simple, clean, and plant-based ingredient labels that mirror a healthy well-balanced consumable diet.
What is Clean Skincare?
Skin health powered by plant-based products ignites your ability to slow the speed that chronological aging onset begins and grows. What is clean skincare exactly? Products that fall under the label of “clean” are made without ingredients known or suspected to cause harm to your health. Many that choose to take a more natural approach to their household products, including skincare, opt for more plant-based ingredients, as they’re known to restore and strengthen the cells in your body and skin and combat free radicals. Some of the vitamins found only in plants are also helpful in vital processes, including cell repair. In addition, essential fats and acids help to fight acne and dryness and increase skin elasticity.
The abundant benefits of using plant-based products:
Plant-based skincare ingredients directly extracted from the original source such as South African Red Tea-known for its rich antioxidant, vitamin D and other mineral value, support the reduction of inflammation, irritation, combat the signs of aging and amplify the skin defense responsiveness to reactive oxygen species.

Usage of products that contain Seaweed, which is full of humectants and Vitamin E, draw in moisture from the environment and hydrate the skin. Amino acids containing anti-aging properties help to plump skin, smoothing out fine lines For example, the Get Fit Serum features seaweed as a key ingredient designed to hydrate and plump the skin.
In addition, diseased states of skin, including skin cancer, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and chronological aging, have two common characteristics – uncontrollable inflammatory triggers and skin barrier disruption. Nourishing the skins barrier provides skin repairing benefits. Usage of products containing Rose Damascene Oil (Turkish Rose Oil) contains deep conditioning benefits and anti-inflammatory properties. With the ability to regenerate, heal and protect the epidermis, it also helps to promote a youthful complexion. It is a key ingredient featured in the Glimmer of Hope Hyaluronic Acid Oil.

Although clean skincare and plant-based ingredients have shown to provide benefits for the skin, be sure to analyze your own skin and the concerns you may have and determine the best routine for you. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out!
