Botanicals are not just for health and wellness but also promote healthy skin. Apart from their benefits, botanical skincare products are safe to use. The products derived from botanical ingredients do not contain harmful chemicals that other beauty products have. Many skincare products today incorporate synthetic ingredients with natural ingredients. One reason is; there are chemical ingredients that give fast and efficient results – but the common reason is to increase the supply regardless of the unavailability of the plant source.

Botanical Ingredient Versus Synthetic Ingredient

The efficiency of some chemical ingredients may be a fact for some skincare products. However, if you dig through that chemical ingredient, you can easily see its harmful contents. Yes! They could give you the result you wanted, but for how long? What about their side effects? Fortunately, consumers are aware of the harm that a synthetic ingredient can cause them. That is why those fortunate to have botanicals in their areas use them for skincare regimens. But to those who are not knowledgeable about plants and not lucky enough to live in a place surrounded by plants, go for products with natural botanical ingredients.

Botanical Ingredient In Skincare Products

Botanical ingredients in skincare refer to the plant parts used for skincare. These plant parts contain natural chemicals which promote skin health. Before the innovative science of plants came into being, our ancestors used fresh flowers, leaves, roots, fruits as medicine or a beautiful skin regimen. The flower petals are mixed in their bath water for fragrance and smoother skin. The leaves and roots are crushed or dried to create tea or health tonics. Some examples of botanical ingredients in skincare products are;

  • Papaya enzymes for skin whitening – papaya leaves is can also be used by crushing them and scrubbing the crushed leaves through your skin. The green liquid extract will exfoliate your skin and make it whiter and younger-looking.
  • Calamansi, lime – or lime juice is also an effective whitening ingredient. Applying it directly to your face will also help dry up the acne. It is also used to whiten dark underarms.
  • Alovera plant – the jelly-like substance inside aloe vera leaves helps hydrate your skin. Aloe ver is also good for your hair. It helps strengthen your dull hair making it thicker and healthier.

Our ancestors believe that it is more effective if applied directly to the skin. For illnesses such as cold, flu, or stomach pain, they are best used orally by crushing and drinking the extract. Or boil the practical plant part and drink the water. As the world evolved, innovative science found ways to maximize the benefits of botanical ingredients. The innovation helps us use it with convenience. Despite that, there are still people today that use the old way – for they believe that being “natural” has the most benefits and is the safest to use.

However, plant ingredients are not available to everyone. Those who live in provinces may have the luxury of having many plants around them. They don’t know which plants in their surroundings are helpful for their skin or how to use them. It is where a “beauty care in a jar or bottle” came in. The botanical science paved its way to the skincare industry.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
