I love botanicals, and they are beautiful and healing. Using botanicals to heal the body inside and out has been used since the beginning of time. Botanicals are potent plant extracts and oils derived from flowers, herbs, nuts, seeds, roots, and berries. Many herbs and botanicals contain high levels of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, and nutrients your skin and hair need to look healthy.
To keep skin healthy, avoid these ingredients: Synthetic fragrances, Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), and Petrochemicals.
