While it may give you “instant” results, using chemical skincare can pose some risks to your skin! Firstly, the chemical ingredients are usually harsher and more aggressive than their natural counterparts. So it is not uncommon to cause irritation or allergic reactions on the skin, especially for those with sensitive skin. In addition, chemicals can also cause dryness in the skin, so the skin will look dull and unhealthy.
Another bad effect is that skincare chemicals can damage the environment, especially if the product is discharged uncontrollably into the surrounding environment. That’s why Serenitree always recommends that we switch to natural skincare. In fact, the brand wants to empower the abundant natural resources in Indonesia! How interesting is that?
Indonesia, Source of Natural Skincare Ingredients
As we know, Indonesia is a country rich in natural resources. From industrial materials, food to skincare. Almost nothing is unavailable! Widespread various types of plants as raw materials for skin care, for example in the form of:
- Coconut Oil
- Lemongrass oil/extract
- Candlenut Oil
- Sandalwood Oil
- Clove Oil
- Ylang-Ylang/Kenangan Oil
- Turmeric Extract
- Papaya Extract
- Aloe Vera Extract
- Celery Extract
- And many more!
These are just a few examples. Because of Indonesia’s abundant natural diversity, there are still thousands of potential plants that can become superior raw materials. The more supporting technology develops, the more options there will be in the future!
Local ingredients are no less good than imported products! The efficacy must be given a thumbs up. Candlenut oil is proven to thicken, blacken and nourish hair. Aloe vera is proven to soothe irritated skin and reduce inflammation. In order to appreciate the resources we have and help the development of other small businesses, Serenitree uses local resources as raw materials for skincare products.
Indonesian Cultural Skincare
Still don’t believe in the power of local natural ingredients? Serenitree also takes a look at Indonesia’s hereditary customs! Various natural ingredients and extracts have been used for years with effective results. The benefit: it’s safe for everyone to use them! Here are some examples:
- Natural scrubs (lulur)
Who doesn’t know this one treatment? Even today, scrubs are still popular and used by many people, especially in Indonesia. Did you know that this treatment originated from Java? It is said that this treatment originated from the routine of the princesses in their time. The function of this treatment is to remove dead skin cells, moisturize and increase skin elasticity.
The natural ingredients used are usually herbs or spices such as turmeric and bengkoang.
- Using betel (sirih) powder
This is also skin care from ancient times! This powder comes from betel plants that usually grow in tropical areas such as Indonesia. The goal is to maintain healthy skin, such as eliminating acne and making the skin look more radiant. The method of making it is by grinding betel leaves into a fine powder first. Then we mix the mill with other ingredients to make face powder. Who is interested in trying?
- Using a rice mask
Masks made from rice have been around in Indonesia since the days of our ancestors! It turns out that rice has benefits for the skin too! This natural ingredient can help brighten the skin and remove dead skin cells. Making it is easy, you only need to mash enough rice. Then we must mix the rice mash using warm water and stir evenly. After that you can directly apply it to your skin!
Those are just 3 examples of the thousands of beauty rituals that exist in Indonesia! Almost all of them use natural ingredients, because it has been around since time immemorial. Before technology, people used to use all-natural treatments. Until now, they are still used or adapted because they see good results from generation to generation.
