Organic raw ingredients and cosmetic products are significantly impacting the changing dynamics of the cosmetics industry’s landscape.
While “beauty” is still the first word that comes to mind when we think of cosmetic items, customers are increasingly looking to discover “environmentally friendly” and ostensibly ‘healthier’ alternatives to their everyday cosmetics.
Natural and organic cosmetics authentically represent these as they are part of their core values and commitment to human well-being and protecting the environment and biodiversity.
Are You Considering Going for Natural and Organic Cosmetics to Take Care of Your Body?
Antioxidants, emulsifying agents, hydrolates and plant extracts, humectants, exfoliants, and surfactants are essential in natural cosmetics. Jeeva Organic is a global supplier of organic raw ingredients with a supply chain that is vast and ensures the delivery of organic products on time.
Our product line includes the following, and more:
Antioxidants work by minimizing the number of free radicals that speed up the skin’s ageing process. These chemicals inhibit microbial development and protect cosmetic components from degradation.
Natural antioxidants include lipoic and ferulic acids, Q10 coenzyme, and vitamins C and E. Grape seed polyphenols and flavonoids, as well as rosemary and citrus, may support good human health.
Using emulsifiers, it is possible to generate a persistent emulsion, that is, to join two phases – water and oil. They provide the desired consistency and help to stabilize the cosmetic product.
GSC (Glyceryl Stearate Citrate) is a popular natural emulsifier that, in addition to preventing cosmetic phase stratification, is beneficial to the skin. Beeswax is another natural material used as an emulsifier in cosmetics.
Hydrolates are distillates formed as byproducts of the essential oil manufacturing process. Their qualities are determined by the plant from which they were taken.
However, they all can tone the skin, may improve its health, and may soothe irritations. Hydrolates are also employed in soaps, lotions, and balms as the so-called water phase.
Vitamins are organic raw chemical components that improve the condition of the skin. C, A, and E are the most prevalent vitamins used in cosmetics. They may relieve skin irritations, protect and control skin density, and help restore healthy skin.
Plant Extracts: The Best of Nature
Plant extracts are active compounds isolated from plants using solvents such as vegetable oils or plant-derived ethanol, or a plant constituent may be pulverized. Their effects are caused by the qualities of the raw material from which they were extracted.
This class of chemicals is used in cleansing cosmetics and is responsible for saponifying pollutants from the skin’s surface and facilitating skin washing. Sodium stearate is a natural surfactant.
This material has excellent foaming characteristics, an antimicrobial action, and softly eliminates dirt without irritating the skin.
Cosmetic Base – The Foundation of Every Preparation
Natural cosmetics can be made using either a water or an oil base. Despite their disparities in consistency, neither outperforms the other in terms of performance. It all relies on the user’s choices as to which type of cosmetic they are more likely to choose.
The water phase comprises floral waters (hydrolates) or ordinary distilled water. Floral water comprises useful elements produced from plant raw materials (including essential oils), which provide additional features to the cosmetic.
In addition, vitamins may be dissolved in fats, so they are better able to penetrate deeper layers of the skin. Among cosmetics based on oil base, we can distinguish butter of solid consistency and liquid oils.
Natural and organic cosmetic ingredients are ethically sourced and have a longer shelf life than other products. As a result, it is recommended that manufacturers use organic raw ingredients while manufacturing their products.
In addition, according to Statista, the global market value for natural cosmetics and personal care is predicted to rise from around 35 billion dollars in 2021 to over 59 billion dollars in 2031.
Growing market demand for natural and organic raw ingredients has shifted the focus of product makers toward a more healthy option that may support good human health.
