Purchasing natural skin care products is a major decision, especially if you haven’t used them previously. It’s important to keep in mind a few key factors before making your purchase to ensure that you’re getting exactly what you want without any unwanted surprises. Here are four tips for buying natural skin care products.

Read the Skincare Company’s Philosophy
Any legitimate skin care company will detail their skin care philosophy to potential buyers. Even better is when you get to read about what ingredients are included in their natural skin care products and what types of ingredients aren’t included. Also important to note is whether the products are animal tested or not. Truly natural skin care products shouldn’t have been tested on animals.

If no philosophy or company information is present, or it’s generic and bare bones, you might consider that all the information they are leaving out, such as stating their skin care products are organic and chemical-free, might mean you should buy skin care products elsewhere.

Read All Disclosures and Ingredient Lists
If you make it through the philosophy, click on a few products, like natural acne skin care, and see if the product ingredients are clearly listed. You should recognize the ingredients as natural or at least be able to pronounce their names. If not, you might be spotting a synthetic ingredient, chemical or byproduct you don’t want to introduce to your skin.

Also, many reputable natural skin care companies will include an ingredient glossary that describes the benefits of all their natural ingredients and where they come from so you know exactly what you’re buying.

Make Sure You’re Truly Buying Natural Skincare Products
A natural skin care company should be able to disclose that their products are natural. If they don’t, you should be suspicious on any “natural” claims they make. We at offer skin care products that are 100% natural. We also clearly list on our website that all of our skin care products are free of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, parabens, artificial fragrances, and synthetic preservatives.

Any natural skin care skin care company you think about purchasing from should be able to say the same things about their products. Unfortunately, companies can get away with including natural ingredients along with synthetic, chemical ingredients, yet still call their products “natural.”

Look for Product Reviews
Another way to help you make an informed decision is to seek independent product and company reviews; along with user reviews of products you’re considering buying. Not all reviews are truthful, so try and find ones (if labeled independent) from trusted sources. Often, user reviews can be helpful as well, although often you’ll have to make up your own mind, since everyone’s skin is different.

Overall, searching out ingredient lists and organic skin care products should be the ultimate deciding factor. Realize that reputable skin care companies encourage customer communication and clearly state not only the types of ingredients, but often their origins as well. If a natural skin care company has nothing to hide, they will offer full disclosure and guaranteed satisfaction on natural skin care products – which means you should be comfortably satisfied with your purchase
