Do you head straight for the organic produce at the grocery store, but still purchase the same drugstore moisturizer you’ve been using for years?
If so, it’s time to reconcile what you’re putting in your body with what you’re putting on your body! It’s time for natural skincare.
Here are a few compelling reasons to look to mother nature for your next spa session.
Natural Skincare is Better for Your Health
You may be surprised (or horrified) to learn that many synthetic ingredients in “conventional” skincare don’t have a whole lot of research done on them. That means you’re taking a risk putting these ingredients on your body. Many of them are known to turn into sensitizers or allergens, or even disrupt your hormones. No thanks.
Natural skincare, on the other hand, is generally safe. It contains ingredients you can pronounce and that have been safely used by humans for hundreds or thousands of years. That’s a pretty good track record!
Natural Skincare Contains More Nutritious Ingredients
Lab-formulated skincare ingredients are designed to achieve one specific goal: like lightening dark spots, for instance.
Natural ingredients, on the other hand, are full of an array of nutritious vitamins and compounds. So by default, they’re often doing double, triple or even quadruple-duty when it comes to benefitting your skin.
Take the chamomile we use in our B-Meltee Cleanser, for example. We’ve included it especially for its soothing properties, but chamomile also reduces signs of aging, combats acne and fights free radical damage, too. We couldn’t stop it from doing these things even if we wanted to!
Nature is smart, and you get so much more bang for your buck when you source your skincare from her.
It’s Better for Our Planet and Kinder to Animals
When you wash your skincare down the sink, it has to go somewhere. So what you’re sending into our waterways matters. The earth is a lot better equipped to receive and thrive with ingredients that came from her than ingredients that came from a factory. Not to mention, many factory products also require mining for products that damage the planet.
You may also not be aware of how many large “conventional” brands still test their products on animals. (We won’t name names, but PETA will.) On the other hand, the vast majority of natural brands do not test their products on animals.
It’s less Likely to Irritate Sensitive Skin
You may have been diagnosed with sensitive skin at some point in your life, but we’d rather refer to your skin as discerning! Who can blame it for being irritated, inflamed or otherwise off put by questionable factory-made ingredients?
Most conventional skincare ingredients, such as salicylic acid, have a natural alternative that’s much gentler, but still effective (even if it takes a little bit longer to see results).
Moreover, many conventional skincare products that are designed to fix one issue can create another. For example, many chemical-rich anti-acne products dry out the skin, which can lead to more acne down the road.
Several of these products also increase sensitivity to sun, which can create wrinkles and dark spots later on.
Natural skincare tends not to promote such extremes in pH, sensitivity, etc.
Natural is Just as Effective as Conventional Skincare
Natural products can lead to just as good of results as conventional skincare, and in fact can often be more potent since they’re not packed with useless (yet harmful!) fillers.
However, especially when it comes to natural products, it matters a lot how they’re produced and stored. For natural skincare to reach maximum effectiveness, it has to be kept cold. That’s why we created Wild Ice Botanicals: the world’s only cold kept skincare company. We invite you to try our line of high-potency, entirely natural skincare and experience the difference that mother nature can make.
Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.
The Cyro-C serum is by far the best vitamin C serum I have ever used. I love skincare so much and you can tell this product is made with care. The smell is amazing and I get complimented almost daily about how my face looks glowing since I started using. Mila was so kind and knowledgeable. I will definitely be rebuying once I run out!
I have oily/combination skin, so I pump/mix both and then apply, otherwise it’s too oily and doesn’t absorb quickly. This works so well! It makes your skin smell great even hours after application. I only wish this trick for oily skin was on the instructions of bottle. I didn’t realize until I saw it on one of their insta stories. Great product otherwise!
I love the 4-step facial products. The routine is easy and simple and the results are amazing. This is one of the best product lines I have used on my face, and I can really see a difference in my skin. I first purchased two of the products at Market Days in Tallahassee. When I finished the products, I went back to what I was using previously. It was not long until I decided that Wild Ice is the perfect product line for me and my dry skin. I am hooked.
I recently found these products and amazing creator at our local farmers market and all I can say is WOW! I was instantly sold from the moment I applied the cold-kept cream to my skin. I'll absolutely be going back for more from her skincare line and watching allll of her informative videos on their social media page
This is absolute gold in a bottle that smells like fresh oranges. My skin is sensitive and I do have rosacea and it drinks Cryo-C up! My complexion has greatly improved and am so happy I made the splurge. This, along with the toner, are new repeat buys for my skin routine. I look forward to my skin routine AM & PM just because it feels and smells amazing!
This has improved my skin and is very refreshing. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this has not caused any breakouts. I use this with Cryo-C and absolutely love it! Will definitely be a repeat buy to my skin routine.
I recently purchased the complete skin care package and I absolutely love it! I’m having a hard time deciding which product is my favorite. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and helps with my overall skin appearance, The serum brightens my skin, one of the best I’ve tried and the moisturizer! It has improved every single issue I’ve been concerned with. Love love love the entire collection! Thank you so much!
I just started with this to see how my skin took it before I invested in any more products. I have used it consistently for several weeks and WOW. My skin literally feels more healthy and looks it, too! And my husband is always telling me I smell good right after I put it on. :)
I found this product at the Rosemary Beach farmers market. It is amazing! Have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels wonderful. I have rosacea and use others products for it, but this adds to the regimen and soathes your face. Love that it is cold (if you put it in fridge) which is so calming in the summer!
