Why You Should Choose Natural Skincare: Reason 2: Nutrient Rich

natural skincare products

We know that nutrients are essential for our body’s functioning. Since skin is the largest organ in your body, it makes sense that consuming a range of balanced nutrients is as vital to your skin health as they are to the health of any other part of your body. Part of Azuri’s natural skincare mission is to make sure that our natural skincare products are always nutrient-rich.

Your skincare should provide your skin with the essential nutrients to support its biological processes. There are five categories of essential nutrients that will do this:

  1. Vitamins
  2. Minerals
  3. Enzymes
  4. Amino Acids
  5. Fatty Acids

Vitamins are micronutrients necessary for your body to function. The common vitamins you may have heard of for skin health are vitamin A, C, D, K, and E. Minerals are another category of micronutrients that supports your skin’s processes. Important minerals in skincare include zinc and selenium. Minerals are an important component of your skin’s structure. Enzymes are a key type of exfoliator for skin health. In your body, enzymes help you digest your food. In skincare, enzymes “digest” dead skin cells to reveal smoother and brighter skin. Amino acids play an important role in maintaining your overall health and beautiful skin. They help maintain your skin’s hydration, texture, and generally healthy appearance. Fatty acids protect and support your skin barrier, which in turn protects the texture and hydration in your skin.

As you have probably noticed, these five categories of essential nutrients have some overlap in skin benefits, but each is important on its own and in combination with each other to best support your skin’s natural processes and give it a boost. The botanicals used at Azuri for our natural skin care products have been used for hundreds of years by Indian and African communities; they are time-tested and deeply traditional. Many (chemicals) in skincare are inspired by and designed to mimic the qualities of the nutrient-rich ingredients used in natural skincare. Natural ingredients often contain a well-rounded and balanced nutritional (density). Marula, for example, contains high levels of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and amino acids, together, slow down signs of aging in the skin and promote skin resiliency. These ingredients, combined with modern skin care practices, create beautiful, effective, and gentle skincare products that promote long-term skin health and rejuvenation.

At Azuri skincare, we use only the highest quality, naturally occurring ingredients that heal and nourish your skin. Our natural skincare products such as, botanical moisturizing soothing cream, luxurious brightening cream, and more contain no GMOs, no parabens, no artificial fragrances, no sulphates, and no silicon.
