Natural ingredients are hard to define, since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate natural skin care products or the ingredients in them. The FDA refers to natural skin care products as using ingredients “extracted directly from plant or animal products as opposed to being ‘produced synthetically.’”

Retail consumers are getting savvier about ingredients, which, in turn, is requiring the skin care professional do some research outside the treatment room. Consumer magazines are writing articles on glycation, rosacea and sensitive skin, and clients are mentioning ingredients that they hear about, asking: “Does this work?” By keeping up with the latest ingredients coming into the skin care marketplace, you are able to guide clients toward the newest products with the most natural results-driven ingredients they desire. Natural ingredients that have been around for years are being rediscovered to have properties that help with anti-aging, brightening, inflammation and acne.

Stem cells

UVA and UVB rays, pollution and extreme environmental climate changes speed up the aging skin process. Plant stem cells are playing an important part of more natural treatments for combating the forces that age skin prematurely. By combining stem cells alongside other natural ingredients, wrinkles and skin that has uneven tone can be combated, and sagging skin can help be prevented.
