Why nature and science are the best combinations for effective skincare products
Skincare today is not just limited to off-the-shelf drugstore products. Thanks to the pandemic, people got the time and space from their hectic life to reevaluate their skincare choices. With more information readily available on the internet, understanding the ingredients that go into these products is getting the attention it truly deserves.
The primary step to achieving your skin goals would be to analyse your skin’s requirements. Is your skin too dry, oily or a combination type? Is it acne prone? What ingredients cause your skin to break out? What ingredients soothe and treat your skin? Read this article to develop a better understanding of your skin and its needs. Once you have that out of the way, you need to decide what skincare products will be the most effective.
As the title of the blog reads, we will talk about how nature and science both join forces to deliver exceptional skincare solutions for a variety of skin problems. It is a common misconception that nature and science do not fit together as a team to give you the best results. They are seen as poles apart, with most people preferring one over the other. Moreover, science is assumed to be a villain for your skin. But is it really so? And do we really need science to make nature work and vice versa?
While it is true that nature has all the answers to your skincare needs, it is vital to acknowledge that we have been able to harness the true potential of natural ingredients through scientific practices. Science helps us measure the impact of an ingredient and aids cosmetologists in perfecting these ingredients to perform even better than their raw form.
On the other hand, if you remove naturally derived ingredients from the equation, science alone can only do so much to repair skin from within. Natural ingredients, enhanced by scientific practices, create the most powerful potion for the skin.
Over the last few decades, we have witnessed artificially produced ingredients that showed momentary results in treating skin conditions but ended up damaging the skin severely over the long run. However, it is also true that due to science, we are better able to understand skin problems and study natural ingredients in depth and how they can be used to repair the skin. Thus, it is pretty evident that one can not do without the other.
Here at Kzen Skincare, we carefully blend nature and science together and curate highly effective but gentle products as per your skin care needs. Our products incorporate only the best of both worlds. Our motto is encouraging more people to understand that natural ingredients, backed by smart science technology, can do wonders for your skin. When you embrace the non-toxic approach to your skin problems, you not save your skin from harmful chemicals but also save the planet in the process. And Kzen firmly believes that sustainable skincare will revolutionise how we care for ourselves and the world around us.
We want to help you understand the many advantages of science-backed natural products. Mentioned below are some of those advantages which will make you throw away your regular drugstore products and switch to the natural way of taking care of your skin.
Concentration Control: Science helps to measure the proportion, concentration, and impact of certain natural ingredients. A great example to explain why you need scientific intervention would be the direct application of lemon juice on the skin. Many YouTubers and influencers encourage the use of natural ingredients as is, but ingredients such as lemon acid are too sharp and stinging on the skin. A much better alternative to applying citrus juice would be the use of a Vitamin C serum. A serum contains the right amount of active ingredients which are safe to use. They quickly absorb into the skin without reacting too strongly with it. Talking of Vitamin C in a serum, Kzen’s highly potent Ageless Face Serum packs the power of not just this antioxidant but also two other powerful ingredients, which are hyaluronic acid and aloe vera gel. Vitamin C helps in fading pigmentation on the skin, enhances radiance and provides protection against UV rays. Hyaluronic acid helps boost skin moisture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and aids in evening out skin texture to make it look smoother and plumper. Aloe vera gel has natural healing properties. It soothes and nourishes the skin. The perfect concoction is essential for the full effectiveness of these ingredients, and thus, you need science-backed skincare products such as Kzen to help you achieve the ideal skin.
Better Skin Health: When you go for drugstore products or even luxury high street products you see celebrities endorsing, thinking they are legit and would get you the skin of your dreams, you are actually ignoring the fact that these products contain ingredients which can severely damage the skin. Some of these ingredients are either extremely drying or clogging. The packaging and tall claims of such products usually compel you to make the purchase. But it is always advised to read the listed ingredients carefully and choose the suitable component for your skin type and concern. Refer to this article to better understand the ingredients mentioned on the labels of skincare products. That being said, some ingredients that one should definitely avoid are parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances, artificial colours, EDTA-based agents, benzoates, silicones and polysorbates, among others. A product that is mindfully produced Kzen makes sure that all their products are free from these harmful ingredients and only qualify the safest and naturally derived ingredients to be included in the products. Our products are also vegan and cruelty-free, ensuring only industry best practices are used in making these products. This way, when you buy a product from us, you choose to keep your skin as well as the environment healthy.
Better Results: Natural ingredients have been used for centuries, either by consuming them or extracting their juices to apply directly to the skin. However, we know how natural ingredients can sometimes be too pure to apply directly. As the world of science advanced and our knowledge of natural ingredients expanded, we got better at knowing the safe way of using them. Science showed us how the ingredients could be blended to better absorb into the skin for better results than using natural derivatives. When you use organically derived and science-backed products, you choose nutritionally rich ingredients. Ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, turmeric oil, aloe vera gel, tea tree oil and many more go deep into the skin to provide nourishment and repair skin cells deeply and naturally. They fare better than artificially produced products such as silicones, which only give results momentarily but end up speeding the ageing process of the skin. Additionally, natural ingredients are safer to use. When you switch to such products, you will see a drastic change in your skin texture, itching, acne breakouts, irritability and appearance of fine lines. They are more effective for controlling acne, hyperpigmentation, signs of ageing, sun damage and a host of other skin conditions. Further, since they are organically produced, they do not have side effects. They penetrate deep into the skin to repair it from within without letting harmful ingredients damage it.
Some of the most powerful natural ingredients that Kzen incorporates in products to help you achieve beautiful, glowing and healthy skin are:
Turmeric Oil: This powerful ingredient has antioxidant, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps in fading blemishes and brightening the skin from within. Our Radiance Face Oil incorporates not just turmeric oil but a host of other highly potent essential oils to provide a range of skin benefits.
Kumkumadi Oil: This elixir of flowers and herbs is most known for lightening and illuminating skin tone. It helps to improve skin texture and repair coarse skin. It is also included in our Radiance Face Oil.
Orange Oil: Rich in Vitamin C, this oil helps in boosting collagen, diminishing signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines, and promotes a beautiful glow to the skin. Find this ingredient in our Anti-Acne Oil to keep that stubborn acne at bay.
Natural Clays: Clays such as Multani Mitti, Kaolin, Benzonite and Geru absorb excess oil and help keep acne under control. Our Clay Soap wonderfully demonstrates just how powerful clay can be against acne, pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. It gently removes dirt from pores and lets your skin breathe freely.
Mango butter: Abundant in Vitamin C, this ingredient is highly nourishing and has a non-greasy texture. It aids in lightening dark spots and preventing wrinkles and sun damage. Rich in mango butter, our Zen Lips Mango Detan helps to hydrate your lips and removes pigmentation and tanning as well.
Hyaluronic Acid: This powerful humectant boosts skin’s moisture and helps in tightening the skin to make it appear younger and smoother. Many of our products, especially Ageless Face Toner and Ageless Face Serum, incorporate hyaluronic acid in their formulation.
Hydrolysed Rice Protein: this amazing anti-irritant helps in soothing the skin when it is irritated due to breakouts or any other condition. It is light and non-sticky. Kzen’s Glow Essence is a perfect concoction of hydrolysed rice protein, niacinamide, moringa extract and gold mica. Together, these powerful ingredients help even out skin tone, repair the skin barrier and promote brightness to the skin.
Niacinamide: It helps to brighten and clear the skin, reduce acne, and prevent signs of ageing. It is one of the key ingredients in our Glow Essence and provides all the above-mentioned advantages.
