What to Look For in Body Care Products

When choosing body care products, you may wonder what to look for. In this article, we'll explore Organic, Targeted, Natural, and Algurionic acid. Each of these terms has a different meaning for each person, so read on to find the right one for you. We'll also touch on other important factors that you should consider, such as cost and ingredients. For example, Organic products contain fewer chemicals than those manufactured by big companies.

Organic

Investing in research and development has resulted in a rising demand for organic body care products. Leading French organic beauty brand has launched its organic skincare line in the U.S and UK.

Natural

Natural body care products are available at a variety of price ranges. They are known for their safety and gentleness, without compromising the environment. You should avoid products that contain parabens and artificial fragrances. Parabens disrupt hormones and can cause skin irritation. FD&C, parabens, and propyl parabens are also common ingredients in cosmetics. To learn more about the dangers of these chemicals, read the label on any body care product.

Targeted

The cosmetics industry has capitalized on this anxiety and incorporated targeted body care products into their general purpose lines. Sales have double digits across the board in both categories. In France, for example, body care sales increased by 12.1% in 2002 and by 10.4% in 2003. Italy and France both saw double digit growth in 2003, and the mass market body care segment saw an 18.7% increase in sales, for a combined total of $177 million.

Alguronic acid

Alguronic acid is a highly beneficial ingredient that can be found in body care products. The substance was discovered in microalgae by a group of scientists who were studying algae as a sustainable source of energy. The scientists found that alguronic acid helped protect and regenerate the algae and also had anti-aging properties. They then decided to test the substance for its potential as a skin care ingredient and gave it the trade name Alguronic acid. The research led to the founding of the skincare brand Algenist.

Retinol

Retinol is an ingredient found in many cosmetic products. The ingredient is sometimes confusing. Some products simply state retinol, while others may be labeled as retinoids. There are two types of retinoids: weak and strong. Retinoids with lower strengths are less irritating, but they produce slower results. The latter is often associated with stinging and burning, and requires a prescription.

Cuticle serums

Cuticle serums are body care products that help to hydrate and moisturize cuticles. These products are formulated with oils that hydrate and moisturize your cuticles, but are also free from potentially sketchy chemicals. They usually come in a convenient pen-like application for easy application. Some of them also have vitamin E and cottonseed oil. They're also great for at-home manicures.
