Coconut oil 

Known for its direct and indericet antioxidant properties, and most notabley the MCFA (medium chain fatty acids)which are easily absorbed and used by the body. Ingesting coconut oil has powerful healing effects, as does applying it onto the skin. This antioxidant skin care product provides amazing moisturizing/conditioning effects for both skin and hair.

High in antioxidant vitamin E, cacao butter is highly effective in fighting free radicals caused by sun damage (UV light), smoke and pollution. Cacao butter is especially effective in the treatment of scars and stretch marks, but also useful as an after/pre sun cream, or to soothe dry and chapped skin.

Shea Butter

Coming from the tropical shea palm tree, this butter is also very high in natural vitmain E. Used for treating psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles and strech marks. Also excellent protection against free radicals created by sun damage.

Powerful antioxidants found in these pure and natural skin care oils. When it comes to oils, it is easy to tell their quality – the darker (and sometimes cloudier) the better. The last thing you want is a clear oil, which has been overprocessed and practically devoid of any value.

Avocado/Avocado Oil

You can make a simple face mask from a raw avocado – the regular kind you find at the grocery store. If you would rather save it for guacamole, try pure avocado oil on your skin – just as effective as a premium moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling light and clear.

Natural Anti Aging and Antioxidants Skin Care Products

If you don’t have time to make your own skin care products from all natural ingredients, there are a few companies that have 100% pure products. I have to say, there isn’t many, because natural products are not always shelf-stable.

Though there are many new brands of natural and antioxidants skin care products emerging, not many of them are as dedicated to being 100% pure and ethical as the following companies. Worse still, are the brands with “green labels”, or what I call “green-washing”. They look like they are “organic” or natural upon first glance, a quick look at the ingredients list reveals too many synthetic, unnecessary and unnatural ingredients.

The main problem with getting a product approved to go on the market is shelf life and stability (among many other complexities). Natural cosmetics should be refrigerated after 3 months. However, pure oils and essential oils generally last for at least a few months to a year without any specific preservation. You can refrigerate your oils if you start to see them cloud – but that is not a big concern anyways.

Natural preservatives include vitamin E, honey, lemon, sugar, salt, and essential oils. Most essential oils are anti-fungal and anti-microbial, so as a natural preservative look for neem, oregano, thyme, rosemary, clove, cinnamon, rose, eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, neroli, juniper, fennel, ylang ylang oils, and the list goes on… I also find neem oil and clove oil to be especially strong.
