The Best Natural Ingredient Skincare Duos: Part I

When it comes to selecting skincare products, what does a "natural ingredient" even mean? CLARISMA takes pride in our natural ingredients, so this series of blog posts will break down what each element does for your skin, and how we've paired them together in CLARISMA Beauty products! 


One powerhouse duo of natural ingredients are fruit enzymes and Niacinamide.  Specifically, pineapple and papaya enzymes are rich in vitamins C and E.  Working together, they brighten, moisturize, and gently exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, radiant complexion.  Niacinamide helps to firm, hydrate, and reduce redness in the skin.  If you have oily skin, use your CLARISMA Daily Cleanser, Exfoliating Scrub, and Niacinamide daily. If you have dry skin, consider using your Daily Cleanser two to three times per week, while using Niacinamide every single day.


Neem is antibacterial, antifungal, and hydrating, making it great for treating and preventing breakouts.  Found in CLARISMA's Enzyme Complex, Neem oil provides essential hydration in the cleanser in the Daily Cleanser and Exfoliating Scrub.  When used with Bakuchiol extract, a natural and more gentle alternative to retinol derived from Babchi seeds, this pair is great for smoothing and reducing breakouts, fine lines, an wrinkles.  Both ingredients are safe for daily usage and will benefit all skin types.  To achieve smooth, healthy skin use Bakuchiol followed by a product containing Neem oil!


Using hydrators like Hyaluronic Acid is great for the skin because it attracts moisture, but it is just as important to use ingredients that wooth and moisturize the skin, such as Oat Extract. Oat and Oat Aventhramides are found in all CLARISMA Beauty products! Oat Extract and Hyaluronic Acid work well together because the oat calms and soothes, allowing the skin to easily retain moisture, and the Hyaluronic Acid will plump and hydrate the skin more efficiently.  Use this duo daily to give your skin the ultimate hydration boost.


Radicals are the unstable molecules that damage skin cells.  Canadian Willowherb, (a sister to Salicylic Acid), is an antioxidant that attaches itself to free radicals to help prevent the appearance of aging  It also exfoliates your skin, revealing bright and beautiful skin.  Willowherb is such an amazing ingredient, it's featured in all CLARISMA Beauty products! Another ingredient that works hard against free radicals is Rose Extract, a hydrating antioxidant that helps diminish signs of aging and is great for de-stressing the skin.  These ingredients are also gentle enough for daily use!
