Propylene Glycol Free Moisturisers

Propylene Glycol Free Moisturisers

At Nakin our natural anti-ageing face products are as much about the ingredients that they contain as the ingredients that we leave out. Sadly, there are many face products that are filled with so many synthetic ingredients, which we feel are alien to our systems and often have controversy over them. One of these ingredients is propylene glycol which is used in skincare as it is a humectant, so helps with hydration. This is why it often appears in face moisturisers, however, at Nakin we never use it as we believe natural options are far better for us. It is a synthetic ingredient, and we always recommend natural options instead. There are so many amazing hydrating ingredients that are natural and from plants. This is what we use in our natural face moisturisers that are all free of propylene Glycol.

Propylene Glycol is on our banned list of ingredients, along with lots of other unwanted ones. So, if you are looking for a face cream moisturiser that is free of propylene glycol, then take a look at our products. We have our Matt Formula Face Cream for oily, normal, combination and sensitive skin, plus our Active Dew Face Cream for dry, normal, combination and sensitive skin.

All of our face products are made with as much natural ingredients as possible as we believe that these are the most biocompatible with our biology, so this combined with their high nutrient, hydration and anti-ageing ability make them kind and nourishing to skin. This is why we never use ingredients such as propylene glycol, as well as many other synthetic and controversial ingredients including parabens, silicones, PEGs, colours, mineral oil, EDTA and synthetic fragrance.

Natural ingredients provide superior alternatives to propylene glycol in moisturisers for numerous reasons. First and foremost, natural ingredients such as seaweed, aloe vera, shea butter, and jojoba oil offer holistic nourishment without the risk of irritation often associated with synthetic compounds. These ingredients are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that not only hydrate but also rejuvenate the skin, promoting a healthier and more radiant complexion. Moreover, natural ingredients are biodegradable and environmentally friendly, reducing the ecological footprint typically linked with synthetics and petrochemical substances. By opting for moisturisers like ours that are formulated with natural components, you can ensure they are making a kinder choice for both your skin and the planet.

In addition to being gentle on the skin and environmentally friendly, natural ingredients also have a lower risk of causing allergic reactions. This is because they are less likely to contain harsh chemicals or fragrances that can irritate sensitive skin. As a result, moisturisers with more natural ingredients are often the only choice for many people.

Furthermore, many natural ingredients that we use in our moisturisers have anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated skin and reduce redness. For example, plant oils and green tea are known for their calming effects on the skin, making them great additions to moisturisers for those with sensitive skin. As with all products always carry out a patch test before full use, to ensure that it suits your skin.

Another benefit of using natural ingredients in moisturisers is that they often have a lighter and more easily absorbed texture compared to synthetic compounds. This means that they can provide deep hydration without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling on the skin, making them suitable for more skin types.

Lastly, natural ingredients are sustainably sourced and support local communities. For instance, shea butter is harvested from the nuts of the shea tree by women's cooperatives in West Africa, providing economic opportunities for these communities. By choosing moisturisers with natural ingredients, consumers can not only take care of their skin but also contribute to a more sustainable and ethical beauty industry.

Overall, moisturisers with natural ingredients offer numerous benefits for both the skin and the environment. They are kinder, less allergenic, anti-inflammatory, lightweight, and promote sustainability. Whether you have sensitive skin or simply prefer using products that align with your values, incorporating moisturisers with natural ingredients that are free from propylene glycol into your skincare routine is a great choice. So next time you're in need of a new moisturiser, consider opting for ours with masses of natural ingredients, for a healthier and happier complexion.
