Shopping for pure natural skin care products can be challenging. To guarantee a long shelf life, many manufacturers use less expensive and potentially harmful synthetic chemicals to create their "natural" products; even some health food store brands. A long shelf life is not necessarily good for the life of your skin. Unfortunately for the consumer, the word "Natural" (unlike the word "organic") is allowed to be used to label products that are almost completely synthetic. The only way to know what you are using on your skin, is to learn to read the labels carefully, as they are often designed to be deceptive. Skin eats oil, drinks water, and absorbs nutrients to replenish itself. Recent research has proven that what you put on your skin, is found in your bloodstream within minutes. Gourmet Skinfoods are fresh blends made weekly, utilizing food grade ingredients. They are naturally preserved with citrus, vitamins and antioxidants. No synthetics.
