Do you know that The Butter Bar Skincare was started to provide natural skincare products that are safe and healthy alternatives to synthetic products with toxic chemicals? To avoid continued exposure to the harsh effects of synthetic chemicals she used to treat acne and dark spots, our founder, Kimberly-Chloe Wilson, took a bold step to develop herbal skincare formulas which quickly expanded into an in-demand range of 100% natural & hand-made products. Product formulation has since grown to include customization of products to address specific skin problems on specific skin types. In keeping with the founding vision, our business growth and product expansion are intentionally and consistently matched with focused considerations for what is best for the customer in terms of added values for money spent. The numerous benefits of our all-natural, safe, healthy and high-potent products guarantee high returns on investment (purchasing and using our products). We source our ingredients, produce and market our products using processes that are ethically sound and are beneficial not just to our customers, but to the environment and animals.
Many women and men who desire the best outcomes from skincare products have come to choose products made with natural ingredients over those made with synthetic chemicals some of which are harmful to the skin and body. This is possibly your experience as you’ve tried diverse skincare products, only to settle for natural products.
Let’s tap into the knowledge of basic life sciences to understand why natural skincare products are more beneficial than artificial products. When you apply a skincare product, the active ingredients in it act on the skin and penetrate underlying skin tissue (subcutaneous tissue) for more action. This is how a skincare product produces its effects on the skin. In fundamental Biology, we know that our body, made up of organic microstructures (cells), undergoes programmed cell death (apoptosis) to rid itself of cells that have outlived their usefulness. The lost cells are replenished as the body incorporates food nutrients that are similar in structure and function to our body constituents. So, to maintain our body in a healthy state, we are to feed it with food nutrients it can tolerate, process and integrate. You can sum up this fundamental Biology principle with this nugget of wisdom; " We are what we eat".
Our skin being the largest and most visible body organ provides us a living sample to observe the effects of this principle and wisdom nugget. Application of skincare products made with natural ingredients that bear close resemblance to constituents of our skin cells promotes seamless organic incorporation and less undesirable effects.
By extension, you can easily understand that applying skincare products made with inorganic/artificial/synthetic chemicals could trigger adverse reactions. Notable adverse reactions associated with toxic chemicals in synthetic products include skin irritation, rashes, dryness, and breakdown; headache, dizziness, acne and worsened skin sensitivity. Artificial fragrances, preservatives, colorants and other toxic chemicals used in formulating synthetic skincare products are known to cause severe adverse health effects. Risk of developing certain cancers and damage to internal body organs increases with using products containing these toxic chemicals.
If you’re wondering how these toxic chemicals reach the internal body organs from the skin, here is a Biology 101 lesson for you. Rubbing skincare products into the skin allows direct skin absorption of the toxic chemicals and their passage through hair follicles and sweat pores into deeper subcutaneous tissues. Within the subcutaneous tissues are small blood vessels (capillaries) that absorb and carry the toxic chemicals to the internal organs where they cause damages.
