I’ve taken huge interest into natural body care and I think there is a massive growing market for science to combine natural beauty with scientific study and methodology. Most skin care products have labels with lists of ingredients we do not understand. Most of these products are made from synthetic chemicals, to imitate natural qualities. Aveeno Daily Moisture, has been a lovely new addition to my beauty routine and I am happy to say the list of ingredients is so short, you can google each ingredient.
Active Ingredients: Dimethicone 1.2% (skin protectant)Inactive Ingredients: Water, glycerin, distearyldimonium chloride, petrolatum, isopropyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, avena sativa (oat) kernel flour, benzyl alcohol, sodium chloride
The cream is a subsidiary product of Johnson and Johnson and it’s comforting to know that beauty brands are starting think smart about beauty, looking for better answers that are safer on our bodies.
Aveeno daily moisturising lotion is loaded with colloidal oatmeal (ground up oats) which is very beneficial for the skin as it locks in moisture. Colloidal oatmeal also relieves skin irritations, and can even help with some forms of eczema. It’s an all-in-one antioxidant, a powerful UV protectant (still wear your sunblock), and an anti-inflammatory. It’s basically one of the most amazing all-natural, organic ingredients on the planet. A truly complete ingredient that helps your skin in many ways.
The lotion is thick and creamy but not oily, so it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky. It’s perfect for those who have sensitive skin or those with skin issues like eczema or very dry skin. Also the product is fragrance free and colourant free – which is where most people get their skin allergies from. The added fragrances and colourants that companies add to products to make them smell and look good are filled with skin irritation ingredients. And to be honest, it has a nice smell on it’s own. Also I must add that Aveeno has no parabens – for more info on parabens, read my holistic skin care article.
I have been using this product for 2 weeks and absolutely love it! I would buy it over again, Knowing that I am feeding my skin with active and natural ingredients that have been researched and lab tested. This product is available at clicks and leading pharmacies for R79.99 for 200ml.
