1. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHOOSING NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?
Ed : "Natural skin care products are relatively skin-friendly and pollution-free. Since the natural ingredients are derived from plants, each batch is not exactly the same, so long-term use will not get used to the unity of the ingredients."
2. WHAT ARE THE DEFINITIONS OR CHARACTERISTICS OF SO-CALLED NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?
Ed : "It's very simple. The raw materials used to make skin care products are all natural materials, such as plant extracts."
3. HOW DO ORDINARY PEOPLE CHOOSE REAL NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS FROM YUNYUN'S CHOICES?
Ed : "The most important thing is not to be lazy. You must read the ingredient list and understand the characteristics of the ingredients. Before you buy, take photos of the ingredients and go home for information collection. This is the most reliable. Another point is that you should not blindly follow the brand and focus on using it. The skin changes afterwards.”
4. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "NATURAL" AND "ORGANIC"?
Ed : "Natural skin care products are formulated with plant (or animal) raw materials, and the purpose is to originate from nature; while organic is inking in the soil, water, extraction and other aspects of the planting process of the plant raw materials themselves, and they must be pesticide-free Organic farming without artificial hormones can be regarded as organic. In addition, organic certification must be obtained."
5. IS "NO ADDITIVES" EQUIVALENT TO "NATURAL"?
Ed : "I have never understood the term "no additions". In fact, the definition is vague, so I am very lazy to determine whether it is natural or not, and it is not recommended to follow it blindly."
6. IS IT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE TO USE NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?
Ed : "Natural does not mean zero chance of sensitization (such as some of the herbal ingredients contained in it). Therefore, some people may not be suitable. It is recommended to try it on the inner wrist and make sure that there is no sensitivity before buying. It is also best to understand your skin characteristics before starting. , With the utmost respect for your skin."
