Skincare Ingredients for Your Skin Type

Fact: beauty is more than skin-deep. As natural skincare aficionados, we love learning about new hero ingredients to add to our daily routines, especially when they're good for us, too! Between Supergreens, Chia seeds and a plethora of botanical extracts, there are some ingredients that are better suited for different skin types. Keep scrolling to learn what's best for you!

Sensitive Range

If your skin sometimes feels tight, itchy or red, your skin type is most likely sensitive. Harsh chemicals can irritate and inflame your delicate complexion, so you need to choose products rich in gentle ingredients that soothe and protect. Look out for chamomile, cucumber, aloe vera, jojoba oil and green tea — these are hydrating, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, allowing your fragile skin to heal.

Oil Balancing Range

If you're prone to breakouts, large pores and a constantly shiny face, you my friend, have oily skin. The trick here is not to use anything that's too drying, as your body will produce even more oil to compensate. Instead, use ingredients that will purify and balance the skin, such as bamboo charcoal, roobois tea, white tea, quince, pomegranate and moringa.
