Natural skin care products are an essential part of your beauty routine. Products containing chemicals with false promises to slow down the signs of aging may actually increase them due to the toxic nature of the ingredients. Your skin is the largest organ in the body and absorbs everything applied to it.
Unfortunately, terms like “natural” and “organic” are merely marketing terms in the beauty industry with little oversight from the US government. Other parts of the world, like the European Union, have stricter regulations. The US Food and Drug Administration does not approve labeling before cosmetic products go to market, so it is up to consumers to research which companies are truly natural and effective as they claim. The FDA does not define the term “natural” when it comes to beauty products.
Science-Based, Marine Ingredients Natural Skin Care Products by Kaiderma
There are a lot of natural skin care products on the market, and it can be hard to distinguish between their ingredients. We were sent two excellent natural skin care products from Kaiderma that utilize marine ingredients. “Kai” means sea, and “derma” means skin. I love the way my skin and hair feels after swimming in the sea. Ingredients from the sea offer unique, natural skin products you are sure to love.
Many of the functional ingredients included in KAIDERMA® products have marine origins. The oceans are a rich source of novel bioactive compounds many of which exhibit powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, shield against sun damage and support skin barrier function. It is believed that many of these compounds evolved to help marine organisms survive intense exposure to sunlight, salinity and temperature extremes. Science is just beginning to uncover a wealth of marine compounds with therapeutic activity, and we are committed to incorporate important new discoveries into KAIDERMA® products.
We were sent two Kaiderma Skin Care products to try. Of course, both feature unique marine ingredients backed by scientific research.
Facial Oil Wash – Made with Naturally Derived Ingredients that
Rejuvenate and Protect
- Dissolves and removes make- up, dirt and excess sebum with gentle cleansing action
- Lipid soluble ester forms of Vitamins A, C and E nourish and protect
- Protects and replenishes barrier lipids
- Will not damage skin like harsh cleansers, gentle enough to use every day
I love how gentle this cleanser is, which makes it perfect for all seasons and conditions, like dry winter skin or stressed out summer skin. This is the first time I have ever tried an oil face wash.
To use, do not wet your face first! Massage a small amount of Kaiderma Facial Oil Wash with your fingertips into a 2-inch area. Repeat until you have covered your entire face. Rinse with water and pat dry.
Benefits of Oil Face Wash
It may seem counterintuitive to use oil on your face if you have ever battled with an oily complexion and/or acne. Adding natural oil to your face does not make it more oily or cause breakouts. In fact, the oil acts to balance your skin and natural oil production. As a matter of fact, acne experts recommend oil washing.
Oil washing is great for balancing any skin type. It works by breaking down gently and naturally the hardened oil and dirt in your pores. My middle-aged skin felt light and refreshed after using the Kaiderma Oil Wash. I loved the mild grapefruit scent, and my skin was firmer and softer. Oil washing promotes healthy, hydrated skin, unlike other cleansers that dry out your skin. It should be done daily.
Sea Serum – Made with Natural Marine Ingredients
- Powerful marine agents neutralize age-causing free radicals and in ammation
- Botanical antioxidants Turmeric extract and ferulic acid
- Bioavailable Vitamin C & E esters
- Essential lipids & 6 botanical oils hydrate and support skin barrier
- Lightens uneven pigmentation
Kaiderma Sea Serum is the perfect hydrating treatment following the oil wash. It comes in an eyedropper bottle for easy dispensing. Just a few drops goes a long way! It also has a light citrus smell and feels so good after applying! My skin feels ultra soft and healthy. Furthermore, this product contains antioxidants like Astaxanthin from the sea. I look forward to seeing my skin tone evens out over time with this product.
What’s the difference between serum and facial lotion?
Facial serums are often more expensive than facial lotions, but the difference goes beyond price. In general, serums contain more anti-aging ingredients and are more concentrated, thus more expensive. Facial lotions include additional moisturizers and thus stay on the surface of the skin longer and are less penetrating than serums. Serums are especially good for aging skin, but they can be used at any age and with any type of skin. You can use both lotions and serums (begin with the serum), but you may find one is sufficient, especially if it is high quality like the Kaiderma Sea Serum.
The two Kaiderma products we tried are absolutely lovely! They make my skin feel amazing and my new favorites! High-quality ingredients from the sea make these natural skin care products unique and effective. I am in love!
