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.
I can’t say enough about all the Wild Ice products! The toner is light and refreshing and is the perfect addition to my skin routine. I highly recommend all her products if you are craving beautiful skin!
Started this 4 step set 2 weeks ago and was hooked after the 1st day. Can't wait to post my 6 week progress photo. With each use I keep changing my mind to which one is my favorite. I look forward every morning and evening to the fresh feel of washing and moisturizing my face. Thank you Mila for this beautiful product.
I have used several cleansers over the years and since trying the B-Meltee, I always come back to this product. It is a clean fragrance as well as a clean feeling without drying out my skin. I would recommend this product to all ages and all skin types. It will not disappoint, I promise.
I began using the cryo- C about six weeks ago and my skin has never looked better!
I began using the cryo- C about six weeks ago and my skin has never looked better! The first thing you notice is how wonderful it smells, the second thing you notice is how it glides on and gives you an instant glow, and the next thing you notice overtime is that it provides a permanent dewy glow with diminished discoloration‘s and lines! I love love love this product! I’m 58❤️
Best products ever - and that’s from a very picky user!
This is truly the best system I’ve ever used. My skin is healthier - I’ve always had dry skin and finally it feels hydrated and the difference is visible. It even stayed hydrated feeling and looking on a 5 day ski trip, which always especially drys out my face. I’ve also had redness on my cheeks and that is slowly but noticeably decreasing. I gave wild ice to my daughters and best friend for Christmas as well and they are so happy with it and agree it’s a game changer for our skin. Thank you!
This class was such a great experience. Mila explains how the muscles in your face work and how to use her products to enhance your face and glow. I had so much fun as this class and I would definitely go to another one!
This cleanser is light and refreshing, but does the heavy lifting of cleaning my face daily! I love how refreshed my face feels afterward- not dry or tight; just soft and clean! I have used Mila’s 4 step program for a year now and my skin has never looked better! I’m absolutely obsessed with each step and the benefits my skin has gotten from them. Clear, glowing, soft skin!
The entire Wild Ice line of products are what my skin responds to over any other product I've ever used. I do not hesitate to put any new Wild Ice product on my skin knowing I can trust the ingredients to do the job well. Just smelling the freshness of the products is a daily pleasure. And look no further than Mila's gorgeous skin for inspiration :)
