    WHERE DOES NATURAL BEAUTY STEM FROM?

    WHERE DOES NATURAL BEAUTY STEM FROM?

    STEM education in skincare is the art of combining science, technology, engineering, and math to create natural beauty products from the best ingredients that nature has to offer. At Zandra, we love creating skincare products that are naturally proven to nourish, heal and improve the condition of your skin. And because our products are created especially for teens we’re committed to long-term good skincare.

    We know that the science of great skin doesn’t lie behind harsh chemicals and expensive short-term results. That’s why we’re sharing a two-part series on how the science of nutrient rich, natural ingredients are the bedrock of Zandra beauty skincare.  Here we take a closer look at our core ingredients, their benefits and what makes them the best option for common teen skin issues.   We begin with PART ONE – Body Butters.

    Why Body Butters?

    Body butters aren’t just for those of us with sensitive skin seeking a deeper yet gentle moisturizer. Once we hit our teenage years, some of us suffer from patches of dry, scaly and even red skin which looks in desperate need of rehydration.

    Check out the ingredients! Shea and Cocoa Butters are included in this light moisturizer.

    In some cases, that dry skin may be more severe and require specialist treatment such as teen eczema. But in general, a combination of hormones, stress and bad eating habits all contribute to negative changes to our skin.

    This is also the case in the development of acne and then the aftermath of acne marks that often form into embarrassing and long-lasting scars. This type of ‘hyper-pigmentation’ can take months or even years to heal and fade. So, if any of the above sounds familiar your skin may be crying out for a rich emollient that can deeply hydrate and restore its naturally beautiful complexion. If so, a natural body butter may be what you are looking for!

    Hello, STEM Skincare 😉

    We love what we do and we love sharing how we make our products. After all, each product is made with you in mind it’s important that they work just the way nature intends them to. On their own, natural body butters offer a multitude of healing nutrients that soothe, nourish and protect the skin. We believe in the natural healing and nutrient rich abilities of body butters, for hydration and repair which makes them a key component of many Zandra beauty products.

     

    Zandra’s Core Ingredients – A Body Butter Snapshot

    • Unrefined Shea butter – Shea butter is super moisturizing, and a good source of vitamins A and E, which strengthen and soften your skin and help it repair damage without clogging pores.
    • Cocoa butter – Cocoa butter has antioxidants and beneficial organic molecules that protect the skin from environmental, internal, and external factors that can cause irritation or damage to the skin. Cocoa also makes an excellent hair conditioner.
    • Mango butter – Mango has high levels of vitamins A and C and is known for its antioxidant properties. These rich body butters can heal irritated and cracked skin.

     

    A good skincare routine is essential!

    Moisturizing the skin is only one part of a good skincare routine, especially when it comes to the face. For example, cleansing away dirt and oil build-up, toning skin in preparation for moisturization are all good practices – helping you to clear rather than conceal your skin with make-up and powders that actually block pores (!). In fact, when it comes to the neck down, a good skincare routine shouldn’t be ignored. Ensuring that you have the right moisturizer for your skin care is important to maintaining a healthy, bacteria-free and smooth look.

    Zandra beauty products are designed with you in mind. So, whether you are suffering from skin sensitivity, dehydration or simply dry skin think about your skin needs and head to our product range to sample any of the above core ingredients.

    Don’t forget! Over time our skin changes. Keep that in mind and try different products when you need to. Stick to a regular routine that cleanses (tones the face) and moisturizes all over.

    WHERE DOES NATURAL BEAUTY STEM FROM? (PART 2)

    WHERE DOES NATURAL BEAUTY STEM FROM? (PART 2)

    In part two of our series on STEM education in skincare, we look at another batch of all natural ingredients from the Zandra beauty lab and discuss their benefits for teen skin.

    We now know that the science of combining science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to create natural beauty products that nourish and heal the skin is the best and most nutrient rich way to effectively treat skin for the long-term without using harmful chemicals. In PART TWO we take a look at the different types and effectiveness of Body Oils.

    Why Body Oils?

    Body oils have many benefits for the skin. Surprisingly both dry skin and acne prone skin types may find nutrients in oils that help to heal, reduce inflammation, and fade discolorations. Natural oils are full of antioxidants and anti-bacterial elements that help to detoxify skin without clogging the skin. And they don’t contain the nasty chemicals in commercially produced moisturizers, which means you can create a healthy skin care routine that will not aggravate or irritate your skin.

    The Zandra lab team carefully selects its oils for their effective skin-clearing properties and their ability to moisturize even the driest skin types. By combining oils with other ingredients, the team creates formulas that are made specifically for your skin type.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    • Olive oil – contains vitamin E and anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to fade away acne scars, brightens the skin and helps to prevent future breakouts. It is also perfect for moisturizing sensitive skin!
    • Sunflower oil- loaded with essential fatty acids, including omega-6, which are known to eliminate skin infections,  alleviate dryness and renew skin for a natural healthy glow.
    • Rice bran oil- The many vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants in rice bran oil is great for your skin and hair. Like above, vitamin E and natural fatty acids feature in this oil which makes it great for hydration and smoothing your skin. Plus, it is easily absorbed into the skin and hair and helps to normalize the oiliness in the scalp, strengthens the hair shaft.
    • Castor oil – Much like olive oil, castor oil is another great cleansing and a moisturizing agent for acne prone skin.
    • Jojoba oil – makes a great scalp cleanser for the hair, and is equally wonderful for the skin
      because it has absorption properties that are similar to our skins own sebum.
    • Avocado oil – for healthy smooth looking skin avocado oil is a great option and chosen by many eczema suffers.

    Today, body oils are all natural and easily accessible. These simple, clean and nourishing oils are used across the complete Zandra product line.
    Natural product making is very important to the creativity of Zandra products. There is so much more to learn about how our products are made.
