Skin Free Review
Skin Free Niaouli Butter Stick
Before I get into the products, let me tell you a bit about SkinFree.
The primary mission for Skin Free Skincare Products is to fill a void in the larger retail market for excellent natural skincare. We wish to introduce concepts in skin care that are innovative effective and affordable. By making these products available, we hope to improve the quality of life for those sufferers of chronic dry skin, damaged skin, and those with chronic skin diseases.Approximately 100 million Americans could benefit from products that are free from fragrances, colorants, alcohols, or paraben preservatives, but they are not readily available in major pharmacies. Petroleum jelly or mineral oil bases are occlusive and not absorbed by the skin. This results in an unpleasant “greasy” feeling. Oil obtained from vegetable sources are readily absorbed, provide a more pleasing feeling on the skin, and offer a variety of beneficial antioxidants, vitamins, and other healing nutrients not found in petroleum products.Lotions are mostly water and require preservatives to prevent fungal growth. Cosmetic emulsifiers, alcohols and preservatives are known to cause irritation, inflammation, and stinging when applied to broken and delicate skin. A strictly vegetable oil vehicle can offer a greater saturation of the skin, a more satisfying sensation when applied, and requires no chemical preservation from fungal overgrowth.
For the last couple of months I have become more aware of the chemicals out there and I have been trying, to my best ability, to go “green and live a more natural lifestyle. All the chemicals I read on the back of the labels from all my moisturizers and skin products disgusted me. I highly doubted that all of those chemicals were beneficial to my skin. Then I heard about SkinFree. SkinFree products were formulated by a pharmacist to be used by people with extremely sensitive skin, allergies, or those with disease states which cause their skin to break down!
I have a mild case of eczema on my arms and I have tried multiple creams and moisturizers, they have all left my skin thirsty! When I tried SkinFree I saw an immediate difference. When I showered I would use the natural moisturizing soap and as soon as I got out I would spray the After Shower Spritz and pat dry. Just using the After Shower Spritz alone I noticed results, but when teamed up with the Super Moisture Body Balm I was in moisture heaven! Even when I stopped using SkinFree for a few days my skin still felt soft and supple. I am in LOVE with this company!
My favorite SkinFree product is the After Shower Spritz, by far! I used the optional spray pump, I found it much easier to manage. It was so gentle on my skin and sometimes I don’t have time to slap moisturizer all over my body so this is great for women on the go! Another great piece of information about the After Shower Spritz is that it is safe for all ages, from newborns to geriatrics.
Another thing I love about SkinFree is that their products have received a toxicity rating of “O” from the Environmental Working Group. They have also received the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance for their soap.
Did you know that a national class action suit was filed against Johnson & Johnson, Gerber, Proctor & Gamble and other major manufacturers of baby skincare for including toxic ingredients in their products? SkinFree really has them beat. I have to say I was shocked when I first read that, when I was expecting my baby I always trusted Johnson & Johnson because it was the most common baby product I saw. I figured they would make it non toxic for such delicate skin.
