The Best Natural Hair and Skincare Products
Coming from someone that has curly hair – Learning how to look after my hair has sparked an interest in me for natural skin care and hair care products. When I realized just how bad silicone’s and waxes (the list goes on) are for our hair it made me question what I was putting on my skin. The amount of moisturizers that we apply to our skin that contain DRYING alcohol is both crazy and insanely contradictory. For the past year or so I have been on a mission to find natural products for my skin and my hair, a few weeks ago I took to the wondrous internet to ask people if they have any product recommendations – This article covers all of my findings.

Mango Hair Butter
This luxurious hair butter is perfect for naturally curly hair. It quickly absorbs into the hair leaving it soft and hydrated. Whether you chose the refreshing citrus or the minty peppermint scent your hair will be infused with mango butter. The mango butter used for the hair butter is part of an initiative to save the mango plant. Currently, the plant is not protected due to under-utilization and undocumented market value. Commercialization and domestication of the mango seed will be a key factor in supporting forest dwellers, tribal and marginalized rural people in Bangladesh.

Dane recommends this product as it leaves his skin feeling both exfoliated and moisturized…
“This is my go skin care product when my skin looks dull and dry. It contains lactobacillis probiotic which is formed during the fermentation process of seeds, plants and organic grains. I have used it to clear my skin because as a man I have more facial hair and sweat more which can all accumulate and cause skin problems. I find my skin naturally sheds dead skin when I use this product consistently and also it moisturizes. I also noticed that the fine lines are less visible now since I began using it. Everything is bio-fermented and the ingredients sustainable.”
