Every day, more and more consumers opt for natural skincare products that are kind to the skin and the environment. Today, smart consumers are rapidly shifting from using harsh chemicals-laden skincare to natural skincare backed by science.
This World Environment Day, let’s look at the 3 best natural ingredients that show powerful results without being harsh on your skin. So, let’s dive in!
Turmeric has been used as a skincare ingredient since 3000 years ago in India. It is one of the richest sources of the antioxidant – Curcumin, a potent brightening agent that stops your cells from making excess melanin. Consistent use of products with turmeric will brighten the skin and lighten dark spots.
Turmeric also shows strong antimicrobial properties that prevent and heal acne breakouts leading to smoother, radiant skin.

1. Aloe Vera
By now, we already know aloe vera gel for the face is a hero ingredient for hydrating, calming, and soothing the skin. But we made aloe even better by adding niacinamide to it. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B that brightens your skin, strengthens it, and shrinks your pores.
Our Top Product Recommendations With Aloe Vera
Lotus Herbals Active Aloe + Niacinamide Brightening Boost Gel: This is the perfect summertime moisturizer for oily skin types. But this can be a super hydrating emulsion for dry skin types to quench parched skin. Layer it with a richer moisturizer or face oil to lock in the hydration.
Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Satin Moisture Anti-Pollution Serum Mask: A must-have if you live in the city! Throw it in the fridge for an hour and apply it on your face to have the most relaxing, hydra-facial at home.
Bakuchiol is a more recent introduction in the skincare world, which is nature’s retinol (vitamin A). If you want your skin to look at least 10 years younger, then it’s time to use Lotus Herbal’s anti-aging skincare line with Bakuchiol.
Bakuchiol is gentler than retinol and doesn’t irritate or dry out the skin, making it a better alternative.
It keeps your skin bouncy and youthful by –
● Stimulating collagen production, which gives your skin a bouncy appearance and fades fine lines and wrinkles
● Increasing the rate at which your skin produces new skin cells to make it smooth and glowy
● Fading tanning, spots, and uneven skin tone
● Strengthening the skin barrier to keep skin moisturized and plump
Our Top Product Recommendations With Bakuchiol

YouthRx firm & bright face serum: If you have oily skin and can’t handle an oil, try this beauty which gives you all the benefits of a face oil without feeling oily or heavy.
YouthRx firm & bright day crème: Protect your skin from ageing pollution and environmental stressors throughout the day with the antioxidant action of this stunning cream.
Top 3 Reasons To Choose Plant-Derived Skincare Over Animal-Derived Ingredients
1. Animal-derived skincare ingredients like lanolin and beeswax clog your pores leading to textured skin and acne breakouts.
2. Raising animals to get raw material takes a lot more resources. It also causes unnecessary deforestation and pollution. The plant-derived ingredients are a much more sustainable and better alternative.
3. Plant-derived skincare is better for sensitive skin. Ingredients like eggs, dairy, and beeswax, which come from animals, can cause severe irritation.
