Natural Professional Skin Care: Why You Shouldn’t DIY

Natural Professional Skin Care: Why You Shouldn’t DIY

April 29, 2019

There are lots of great DIY projects out there from creating your own wedding favors to making your own rhubarb jam. But, one DIY project we’d never recommend is making your own skin care products. Because, when it comes to natural professional skin care, the ingredients may be simple, but the process is not. Here are 5 reasons why you should always enlist a professional when it comes to your skin care regimen.

  • 1. The Right Environment

  • Even the tidiest residential space is no match for a professional and sterile environment. Theoderma’s facility is an eco-certified laboratory and all our products are developed on vegan dedicated equipment. In addition, professional lab equipment allows for advanced testing and manufacturing. For example, most DIYers will test with pH test trips (that is, if they test for pH balance at all) which is highly ineffective when compared with professional pH testing equipment.

  • 2. Access to the Best Ingredients

  • When we formulate our products, we hand-select our botanicals from vetted suppliers. Rather than buying premade extracts, we source the actual botanicals and then steam-distill onsite to ensure 100% purity. It’s an unfortunate fact that many extracts are created by using chemical extraction methods which means there are often hidden preservatives in those “clean” products.

  • 3. Smart Packaging

  • To ensure the longevity of your product’s efficacy and safety, a natural professional skin care company, like Theoderma, uses specially-designed packaging to limit air contact and UV exposure, both of which can have negative effects on your skin care products. Many DIY products wind up in jars or tubs that get excess exposure to air and risk contamination each time fingers are used to scoop out the product.

  • 4. Skin Care Expertise

  • At Theoderma, every product is formulated by a skin care expert with more than 15 years of experience in dermatology as a Physician Assistant. Our founder, Savy Guthrie, has been dedicated to finding the perfect blend of science and nature to naturally support your skin’s natural beauty.

  • 5. Longer Shelf Life Than DIY Products

  • In addition to using natural preservatives, our products have been safety tested to ensure our customers have a product that is safe and effective, with ample duration for use prior to spoilage. DIY products, on the other hand, typically have a shelf life of just 1-2 weeks.
