You can now feel reassured in Barefoot Botanicals: natural alternatives here to benefit and pamper

Barefoot Botanicals has always prioritised the sourcing of their ingredients, demanding the most effectively therapeutic plant extracts from around the world. The products do everything that the big mainstream brands promise. The difference? They are high in natural and active botanical ingredients, suitable for vegans and none have been tested on animals.

The debate over chemical skincare is becoming more prominent today as children and adults seem to be suffering more than ever with reactions, problem skin and eczema. Harsh chemicals unknowingly applied to our bodies, our skin and pocket is feeling the pinch. People who suffer with skin conditions often look for natural alternatives so it is vital that we are informed of exactly what ingredients the products contains.

Dr Chris Steele, Resident Doctor on ITV’s This Morning says, 'I see more and more patients suffering nasty reactions to chemicals in their everyday skin care products. Beware of products that contain lanolin, sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens and artificial fragrances, as they have a tendency to irritate the skin.  Even substances like paraffin can be problematic for people with sensitive skin.  It's not all bad news though as there are some effective products on the market, with natural ingredients such as chickweed, evening primrose, borage, squalene and vegetable glycerin, which soothe the skin, and if used regularly help control eczema and other dry skin conditions.'

Jo Fairley, author of the Green Beauty Bible adds to the chemical versus natural debate saying, ‘The reality is that despite the boom in “natural beauty”, many beauty products are still based principally on petrochemicals – non renewable, non-sustainable (not to mention pore-blocking, in the case of paraffin and mineral oil).  Yet nature has such amazing, bountiful, renewable beautifiers to offer that it just doesn’t make sense to me to plunder the earth’s resources for the sake of our skins. After 16 years of researching The Beauty Bible series of books, I can put my hand on my heart and say that I know not only from my own experience but from many testers’ observations that there are many natural  products out there which rival - and even out-perform mainstream products'.

With Doctors and skincare experts recognising natures importance, you can now feel reassured in Barefoot Botanicals: natural alternatives here to benefit and pamper.
