In recent years, beauty and cosmetics have been dipping deeper and deeper into rich elements nature has to offer and straying farther away from the chemical laboratory. We not only get to enjoy essential oils from nature, but charcoal, seaweed, kelp, and many other ingredients we've never heard of until now. This is an exciting year for natural cosmetics. While many of us have the inclination to transit over to the healing powers of nature's gifts, we may have been hesitating for far too long. In the past, the transition may have seemed too daunting of a change, but not anymore.
Thankfully, many intelligent chemists, beauticians, and advocates of nature have turned to a deeper analysis of natural ingredients safe and reliable for our skin, hair, and body. Many brands have been working on natural deodorants that safely keep you smelling clean and aromatic, serums that safely clean and moisturize the face, and even plant-based mascara that will last all day long. Some of these products can get extremely lux and pricey so be careful with this very precious list. Check out some of this year's most exciting new natural products below.
