5 Reasons Why Botanicals Make the Best Moisturizers

It’s true, Tuel is passionate about all-natural, 100% vegan skincare products that are powered by botanicals. And as the skincare industry continues to make significant shifts towards clean, all-natural beauty, botanicals are definitely having a moment. But we’ve known for decades that botanicals and their plant-derived ingredients make for the best moisturizers. As you educate your clients on the benefits of using an all-natural skincare line, here’s some facts about botanicals and why they make the best moisturizers.


Reason 1: They’re All-Natural

Let’s start with the fact that they come straight from mother nature. Botanicals as ingredients in moisturizers mean the skin is getting the best oils from plants and flowers in their purest forms—increasing their effectiveness. Our body’s cells have been conditioned to respond to ingredients that are all-natural, vs. anything artificial.


Reason 2: They Offer Anti-Bacterial Properties

While moisturizing the skin is important, many of your clients are dealing with other skin issues such as acne, rosacea or eczema, and are also looking for their moisturizers to not only hydrate but heal their skin. Certain botanicals help fight bacteria and other harsh elements skin is exposed to throughout the day, creating healthier skin overall.


Reason 3: They Hydrate the Skin

Everyone knows moisturizers are an essential step in any skincare routine. Staying on the skin from morning to night, it quickly becomes obvious when a moisturizer doesn’t do its job. Botanicals such as aloe, lavender, tea tree and mushroom work with the skin to hydrate, plump and nourish, all while healing and protecting.


Reason 4: They Work with Other Ingredients

Botanicals pair well with other antioxidants and vitamins such as panthenol (provitamin B5), phospholipids, and hyaluronic acid to create highly effective moisturizing products. 


Reason 5: They Are Anti-Aging

Anti-aging properties is a moisturizer essential no matter what your age, and nothing delivers better long-term results than botanicals. They go deeper, working with skin cells to not just temporarily reduce the effects of aging, but modify inflammation and increase cell growth.
