I am just going to warn you right off the bat that the idea that the best selling natural skin care moisturizer is the most effective product that is available is not always true. As a matter of fact it is most often not the case. Too many times I have seen people get caught up in following everyone else’s lead when it comes to buying skin care products, and making bad decisions.

What happens when you simply follow the crowd is that you are making a decision to purchase without having done any homework whatsoever. By doing this you could actually be putting your health at risk due to the fact that the majority of the skin care products on the market contain chemical agents as ingredients that could be of potential harm to you.

Most people would not imagine that the best selling natural skin care moisturizer could contain such chemical agents, because it has after all been marketed as a natural product. The product is probably dubbed a natural moisturizer simply because the moisturizing agents themselves are naturally produced. This product could very well contain artificial compounds in it.

So you are probably thinking to yourself “how bad can these chemicals be? They’ve never killed anyone.” That may or may not be true. Although there are no documented death’s that have occurred that were tied to the agents in skin care products at least some of the ingredients, preservatives known as parabens, have been discovered to be present in the tumors of breast cancer patients.

You have to be very careful what it is that you are buying if it is going to be absorbed by your skin. Even if the best selling natural skin care moisturizer didn’t contain any of these harmful chemical agents would you have any idea whether or not the moisturizing compounds in your product were truly effective on your skin. Most people wouldn’t know.

That is why the sales of products that contain the natural compounds petrolatum, and mineral oil are so high. These petroleum based agents are probably the worst moisturizers ever discovered. They cannot effectively penetrate your skin, so they will clog up your pores, and leave a dirt collecting residue on your skin that will eventually cause your skin to become drier than it was before.

What the best selling natural skin care moisturizer should contain if it is to be considered worthy of the position are plant based ingredients as its primary moisturizers, and the more the better. Avocado, macadamia, and grape seed oils just to name a few will provide your skin with moisture deep down, and will also give you antioxidants, omega fatty acids, and many more nutrients that lead to good health.

Don’t just buy the best selling natural skin care moisturizer because everyone else is doing it. Make sure that you look at the ingredients on a product before you get it in order to make sure that it has the healthy, effective ingredients that your skin needs. With the right product your skin can be everything that you wanted it to be.
