A Timeless Trend: The Power of Nature in Skincare

The shift towards natural skincare is more than just a passing trend—it's a movement rooted in the desire for safer, more effective (and cost effective) solutions. It has always been rooted in our mission at MION Artisan Soap Co. to raise awareness about the potential risks of synthetic and harmful ingredients. There is power in the nature around us  — botanicals, minerals, and other earthly substances to contribute to healing our skin. Below is a high-level overview of ingredients we not only use across all of our products, but you’ll want to learn more on what your skincare labels are doing for you!

Beauty and Botanical Extracts

Aloe vera, chamomile and calendula extracts have long been used for their soothing and healing properties. Aloe vera offers immense hydration and aids in repairing our skin, commonly known as ideal for treating burns and irritation. Chamomile extract boasts anti-inflammatory and calming effects, perfect for reducing redness and soothing sensitive skin. Calendula is known for its antiseptic and healing properties, making it a common ingredient in treatments for wounds and eczema (our specialty)! These botanical extracts offer gentle yet effective solutions for a variety of skin concerns.

The Power of Plant-Based Oils

Rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, oils like argan, jojoba and rosehip offer profound benefits for the skin. Argan oil, for instance, is known for its moisturizing and anti-aging properties, thanks to its high content of vitamin E and fatty acids. Jojoba oil, which closely resembles the skin's natural sebum, is excellent for balancing oil production and providing deep hydration without clogging pores. Rosehip oil is praised for its ability to reduce scars and hyperpigmentation due to its high levels of vitamins A and C. These oils not only nourish the skin but also enhance its natural barrier, making them a vital addition to any skincare regimen.

Superfoods for Superior Skin

Ingredients like turmeric and spirulina are packed with antioxidants that combat free radicals and inflammation. Turmeric has an active compound called curcumin that has powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it ideal for acne-prone and sensitive skin. Spirulina is loaded with vitamins and minerals that detoxify the skin and improve its overall health. These superfoods help your skin combat everyday environmental stressors.
