Rafa Natural’s Organic, Vegan, and Gluten Free Sea Mineral Toner - Hydration from the Ocean
Toner. A lot of people have no idea why we need it, so we skip this critical step in our skin care routine. Or we associate with Isopropyl Alcohol because honestly, in the 80′s that’s pretty much all toner was. It dried out skin and left us feeling not so great about it.
But before you write it off completely here are a few things that may make you change your mind:
- It removes make-up and dirt that remained after washing.
- It closes pores.
- It adjusts pH. Most people do not care about the pH of their skin, but it can make all the difference in making your products work better. Your face enjoys being at a pH between 3.5 and 4.5, if your water is very alkaline, your pH can go up to 8 or greater just by washing your face. It can take up to 30 minutes for your face to get back down to where it need to be, using a toner can make that happen instantaneously.
Rafa Natural’s Sea Mineral Toner does all of the above and more. It’s full of goodness straight from the ocean. Anything from the ocean draws water from itself. That’s why this toner is perfect for dry skin. Its ingredients actually attract moisture from the air to help keep skin hydrated.
Below is a more detailed description of the ingredients within Rafa Natural’s Sea Mineral Toner.
Organic Kelp Extract
The Memorial Sloan – Kettering Cancer Center reports that Kelp Extract demonstrates both antioxidants and skin firming attributes. It also contains minerals that contribute to more radiant skin and Vitamins A, C, and E that help to regenerate skin.
It’s high in proteins and fatty acids. Protein is crucial for collagen production which makes skin look firmer. The fatty acids provide moisture and hydration.
First, don’t let the word acid scare you. This ingredient doesn’t strip your skin. In fact, it does the opposite, it plumps it up! We have Hyaluronic Acid naturally in our bodies, but we lose it as we get older (especially after 40). It resides in the spaces between skin cells providing plumpness, moisture, and suppleness to skin. Not only does it increase hydration, but it also improves elasticity and reverses free radical damage.
Dead Sea Salt
For over three-thousand years the salt from the dead sea has been used for therapeutic benefits. The minerals in Dead Sea Salt promote quick healing of skin tissue, cleanse pores, hydrate skin, and provide antioxidants to help reduce the early signs of aging.
Our 8oz. recyclable bottle comes with a sprayer that allows you to limit the amount you use, preventing waste by pouring too much onto your cotton pad.
