Enhancing Your Skincare Routine with Natural Ingredients for a Spa-Like Experience

Enhancing Your Skincare Routine with Natural Ingredients for a Spa-Like Experience

By Marley Archibald

 Our mission here at The Elderberry Co. has always been to empower families with great, natural ways to support their health. The thing is, your health is not just limited to what is going on inside your body! Our skin is our largest organ, and everything we put on our skin can have an impact on our health. That is why we at The Elderberry Co. are SO excited to introduce you to our brand-new Hydrating Face Oil and Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion! Both contain clean ingredients and are free from parabens, sulfates, fragrances, and preservatives; they are the perfect duo to treat your skin to indulgence that heals.

First, why is it essential to have clean skincare? What even are parabens and sulfates? According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, parabens are a group of chemicals with similar molecular structures that are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics. Parabens can act as potential endocrine disruptors due to their ability to mimic estrogen. While using a product or two with parabens does not pose an issue, the concern grows when we note just how many products an individual uses that may contain parabens– same with artificial fragrances. Like most people, your typical beauty routine likely includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash/soap, lotion, face cleanser, face moisturizer, and more. If each of these products contained parabens and fragrances, the endocrine-disrupting load in the body would increase. Yikes! Additionally, sulfates are linked to causing skin sensitivities and dryness by stripping your skin of its natural oils, frequently leading to more acne.

Now that we have covered what our Face Oil and Face Lotion don’t contain, we can get to the good stuff: how your skin will love the ingredients they contain. 

Starting with our Hydrating Face Oil, this oil is jam-packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients that restore and balance your skin, promoting a radiant and smooth complexion. Beginning with a foundation of elderflower and sweet almond oil, these nourish the skin and fight free radicals, which are known to cause fine lines, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and sagging skin. To really target those common skin concerns, we then add helichrysum oil to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as vitamin E to support skin elasticity and repair. (Side note– Do you really wanna bump up the skin elasticity? Add in our collagen + biotin gummies to bring that plumpness!). Then, jojoba oil to balance oil production. If you are worried that applying oil to your face will make you… oily, do not worry! Since jojoba oil is so similar in its chemical makeup to our natural skin oils, it “tricks” your skin into thinking it is overproducing oil, thus leveling out your natural oil production. To hydrate the skin even further, we add rosehip oil. Lastly, we finish with peppermint oil and vanilla oil, to refresh and calm the skin. This combination of oils smells divine, bringing the spa experience right to your home!

Once you have massaged the Hydrating Face Oil into your skin, you can seal in all those great nutrients and benefits using the Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion. While it contains many of the same ingredients as the Face Oil (such as the elderflower oil, helichrysum oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E), aloe vera is added to promote deep hydration within every layer of skin, as well as marjoram oil and lavender oil to promote calm and tranquility. No more greasy, heavy drugstore moisturizers that leave a film on your face! Instead, this naturally calming feather-light lotion leaves your skin feeling smooth and subdued, restoring your skin from the inside out– still at a drugstore price tag.

Finding the right skincare products can be challenging, especially when you try to tailor your routine to your skin type and its needs. Our Hydrating Face Oil and Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion are suitable for ALL skin types, taking the guesswork out of purchasing. So, don’t wait– add these essentials to your skincare routine now! Your skin will thank you.
