botanicals

Rating:

Plant Extracts
General term for a large group of natural ingredients. Botanicals may or may not be organic, and their benefit or risk for your skin depends on the specific botanical in question. Simply put, there are many helpful botanical (natural) ingredients for skin but there are also many that are a must to avoid. Unfortunately, many of the most problematic botanicals routinely show up in skin-care products from lines that work overtime to convince you they're better or healthier for you because they only contain natural/botanical ingredients. Shopping for products with botanical/natural ingredients without knowing which ones to avoid is a surefire way to cause needless irritation that leads to a host of skin problems.
