Are you sick of chemical and toxin-filled products? Switch to natural ingredients that can transform your skin just as effectively.
Today, many major skincare concerns are caused by environmental factors like pollution and sun damage, causing people to opt for plant-based cosmetic products. Because of the growing interest in cleaner ingredients, a global survey points out that the herbal skincare market will reach the value of USD 2.31 billion by 2024. The effects that botanicals have on the skin can be attributed to a renewed interest in Ayurvedic beauty traditions. And for thousands of years, ancient civilizations have depended on nature for treating everything from acne to chronic dryness. Here’s a look at five potent herbs that promise to treat common skin concerns.
Manjishtha is a flowering plant that is known for its blood purifying and analgesic properties. Thanks to these qualities, it is often used as an astringent to treat psoriasis and tighten the pores. A report in Open Dermatology Journal mentions that, “Methanolic extract of Rubia cordifolia (Manjishtha) inhibits proliferation of acne”. Ranavat’s Luminous Ceremony Cream Cleanser is loaded with enriching benefits of Manjistha.
Saffron, the world’s most expensive spice, is full of vitamin C and antioxidants. Its healing and antibacterial traits have made it a premium skincare ingredient. What makes saffron extra special is the presence of crocin and crocetin in it. These are naturally occurring plant pigments that help in repairing cellular damage. Due to these compounds, saffron is effective in reducing sunburns and wrinkles. You can use the Ranavat Radiant Rani Brightening Saffron Serum to experience the calming effect of this miracle ingredient.
Jasmine has antiseptic and antibacterial compounds that offer protection against blemishes, cuts and pigmentation. The flower is also loaded with benzyl benzoate and benzoic acid that target acne-causing fungi and bacteria. Its soothing fragrance adds an aromatic effect that helps you relax. The Ranavat Royal Tonique Jasmine Hydrating Mist incorporates the hydrating qualities of Jasmine in a refreshing formula.
Bakuchi is known as an “herbal Botox” due to its anti-aging properties. It is seen as a natural alternative to retinol. It has been proved in clinical studies that Bakuchi is just as effective as retinol in reducing fine lines and increasing skin elasticity. Ranavat’s Eternal Reign Renewing Bakuchi Créme packs up the restorative features of Bakuchi and renews your skin.
The Pushkar rose is a unique rose native to Rajasthan, India and is one of the most sought-after variants of rose. Its high oil content and acid-base (pH) balance helps you restore your skin’s moisture without clogging the pores. Since Pushkar rose is anti-inflammatory and antihistamine, people with sensitivity can also use it. The Ranavat Sacred Rose Hand Cream is deeply nourishing and will give you supple hands.
