"The average person slathers, lathers, rubs and sprays, 10 different skin care products on his or her body every day - and since our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier, we absorb the nearly 130 chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to."*  Eek. That's a lot.

We believe that when it comes to the fundamentals in life such as getting enough sleep and looking after your body, Nature knows more than we all do.  What's more, we just don't want to go bed covered in chemical nasties. All Kiss the Moon products are 100% natural and powered by plants chosen for their amazing ability to work on our senses and our skin.  

Here are four reasons why we believe that, when it comes to skincare products, natural is best...  


Natural is cleverer

There's so much that we still have to learn about natural ingredients and without 100% knowledge it's impossible to know how to recreate and tap in to their powers in a way that the body can use.  

Natural oils are a great example. Basic moisturising lotion is basically oil emulsified in water (with alcohol added to help with evaporation and chemicals to help with the emulsification). Regular brands then usually add a dose of parabens for preservation, artificial fragrances (to improve the smell). Finally there's a good chance there's a dose of petrochemical-based emollients (to soften and give the impression of smoother skin) or humectants (to enhance water absorption) and maybe so thickening agents.  All these additions mean that chemically, lotions tend to be long complex chains that the skin can't absorb - so they sit on the surface rather than being absorbed in to the living, layers underneath

Plant oils, on the other hand, are similar to the kind of oil that your skin produces naturally. Their simpler chemistry means they are more easily recognised and absorbed by the skin without clogging pores and can bind moisture to the skin while strengthening skin cell membranes. Choose the right blend of oils and you can influence things like skin-softening ability and the product's texture and aroma through natural means. An all together better option we believe
