The Importance of Choosing Natural Body Care
Eating a healthy diet, drinking filtered water regularly, exercising, and taking care of your mental health are all examples of the everyday actions we take to take care of our bodies. However, why do we allow our bodies to absorb many chemicals by applying skin products to them every day? Undeniably, anything that is applied to the skin is ingested by it and could, in the long term, be harmful. It is, therefore, preferable to opt for products containing as few ingredients as possible and having natural ingredients.
The idea behind the two new body products from Omy Cosmetics was to offer skin softness, comfort for reactive and sensitive skin, for the whole family. This article discusses why you should choose the body cera-cleanser as well as the dermoprotective body cream in your daily routine.
The body cera-cleanser
The body cera-cleanser is an ideal cleansing bar for skin as soft as velvet and silk. Composed of mild active ingredients, oils, butter, and wax, no saponification¹ reaction is produced, unlike soap. With this in mind, our cleansing bar is adapted to the pH of the skin allowing it to be cleaned without disturbing its skin flora. The dirt is removed while preventing the skin from drying out, leaving it silky and supple. The bar is ideal for all skin types, but will especially win the hearts of skin suffering from extreme dryness or diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, or atopic dermatitis. Our product is dermatologically tested and is preservative-free, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, is 99% natural, and will bring you comfort. The body cleanser is therefore ideal for the whole family, from children to parents.
¹ Saponification is, in the general context, a chemical reaction transforming an ester into carboxylate ions and an alcohol. It is in fact the hydrolysis of an ester in a basic medium. This reaction allows the synthesis of soap. Retrieved from https://www.futura-sciences.com/qui-sommes-nous/.
The importance of the environment at Omy Cosmetics
At Omy Cosmetics, we have the environment at the heart of our values. We are making efforts to do our part and limit the impact on the environment. The body cera-cleanser bar is biodegradable and without plastic packaging, which helps reduce its ecological footprint. As for the skin dermoprotective body cream, the bottle is plastic free. It is made of corn starch, which is biodegradable and compostable.
The dermoprotective body cream
Did you know that when cream is applied to the skin, the chemical molecules pass the skin barrier and go directly into the blood? Inevitably, these molecules can, among other things, be carcinogenic molecules or endocrine disruptors. It is the cumulative effect of all the chemical molecules produced that needs to be apprehended. This is why it is important to consider natural products.
Dermoprotective body cream, tested under dermatological control, intensely moisturizes the skin and protects it against external aggressions and insensible loss of water. Dry skin can cause discomfort, tightness, stinging, and itching. Applying a rich, moisturizing cream is therefore a daily necessity in order to preserve hydration and prevent dryness. Our formula is silicone-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and non-irritant. Omy body cream is ideal since it is composed of 95% natural ingredients and contains a natural preservative. Like the cera-cleanser, it is suitable for the whole family.
The versatility of our products makes them ideal, even for the little ones. The skin of babies and young children is drier, more reactive, and more sensitive to external aggressions. That said, their skin is thinner and therefore more permeable to cosmetic ingredients, including those posing a health risk. Their metabolism system is immature. This ensures that toxic substances will be removed more slowly and less efficiently. It is, therefore, necessary to avoid substances identified as "endocrine disruptors" (certain preservatives, perfumes or UV filters of synthetic origin) as well as alcohol. Also, to avoid allergies that affect babies and children, it is best to avoid allergenic ingredients so as not to sensitize their skin (perfume, essential oils, and these ingredients: Methylisothiazolinone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone or Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate). We recommend that you use two to three products at most to avoid the risk of irritation and sensitization. When purchasing your products, choose those with shorter ingredient lists (minimalist formulas) and focus on the quality of the ingredients (safety) and the composition of the product rather than on a product color or smell that is often more at risk for the baby or child. However, the body cera-cleanser as well, as the dermoprotectrice body cream, are ideal for toddlers, as for older ones.
Preferably used as a duo, the body cera-cleanser and dermoprotective body cream will give you hydrated and glowing skin. Using natural products prevents you from applying chemical ingredients to your skin which could be harmful to your health.
