According to a recent article by Household and Personal Products Industry – Happi, “Growth within the natural personal care industry is nearly three times the rate of the personal care market, according to industry experts.” The article goes on to say, “Recent studies have shown that many natural ingredients are as effective as synthetic and chemicals…” Natural skin care has become much more popular today than it was years ago when synthetic and chemically based products seem to fill the shelves. Nowadays consumers are demanding safer ingredients but do not want to compromise effectiveness. Lately there have been many new studies that have shown promising and in some cases substantial findings which suggest that natural products are highly effective in treating a host of skin issues. Why is it that in the past natural skin care products did not get the type of recognition they deserved? “I think that is partly because of a lack of research mainly due to a reduced interest in natural ingredients. Research and studies were done on products that were common in the marketplace at the time and for years that consisted of chemically derived ingredients and prescription skin care. Most natural skin care lines were viewed as just ‘smell good, feel good’ – with no measurable results,” explains Gina Zeiger, President/Founder of Pretty Mommies Skin Care. “Prescription skin care is very important because it has shown great efficacy in treating problematic skin conditions; but don’t discount natural products in helping to provide a healthy and beautiful complexion. “ “Being a physician maternity skin care line we had to be all natural but we also had to work. Dermatologist and skin care specialist needed to offer their patients a real solution during this special time and it had meet the same result oriented standards of the medical lines that they carried,” Zeiger continued. “There are so many wonderful key and active natural ingredients to work with that we were able to formulate highly effective products”Physician practices and medical spas around the country are seeing firsthand how effective natural ingredients can be and the outstanding results they offer. “Skin care professionals such as myself know that today’s consumer is well-educated.
