The 10 Best Anti-Ageing Organic Moisturizers

Our skin, like our other organs, needs to be fed daily with highly nutritious ingredients so that it looks and feels healthy.
And these days both men and women are striving for better glowing complexions and skincare products with a high percentage of organic ingredients do just that.
Organic products are great at feeding the skin, adding nutrients and keeping the skin hydrated and moist.
Excessive dryness of the skin can cause pre-mature ageing and initiate skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and even acne. Skincare moisturizers act as emollients, in other words 'natural skin softeners' and moisturizers.
Moisturizers have three main functions:
  1. They keep the skin moist, nourish the skin and prevent the skin from losing moisture.
  2. They allow the skin to breath, release toxins and take in and release moisture.
  3. They protect the skin from daily external elements and harmful bacteria, helping the skin to heal when it needs to.
The best skin care moisturizers are those derived from ancient old ingredients, that is, from traditional edible plants.
These ingredients offer high skincare nutrition, are easily absorbed by the skin and allow the skin to breath while moisturizing and nourishing the skin.
Here are 10 of the best organic skincare moisturizers that should be found in organic skincare products:
1. Organic Aloe Vera
Organic Aloe Vera is highly moisturizing, soothing, and has skin calming properties and is excellent for dry and sensitive skin and just about any type of skin related problem that you can imagine.
2. Organic Avocado Oil
Avocado Oil is an excellent emollient and is used to nourish, smooth and invigorate the skin while helping to transport active nutrients and vitamins to the skin. It has excellent bactericidal and soothing properties and is particularly good for sensitive skin.
3. Organic Carrot Oil
Carrot Oil is obtained used for its content of beta-carotene (Vitamin A). Carrot Oil also contains Vitamins B, C, D and E. It is primarily used for rejuvenating and re-hydrating damaged, dry and ageing skin.
4. Organic Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is one of nature's richest moisturizers and can do wonders for your skin. Cocoa Butter, like Shea Butter, has the ability to improve the skins moisture, retention and elasticity and is effective at relieving skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.
5. Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is excellent massage oil for the skin. It is also an effective moisturizer for all skin types, but particularly for dry skin as it prevents dryness and flaking of the skin. Coconut Oil also delays wrinkles and sagging of skin, which normally become prominent with age.
6. Organic Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil is referred to as the 'miracle skin care ingredient'.It is particularly effective in adjusting skin imbalances due to excess dryness or oil. Natural Jojoba moisturizes and softens by forming a breathable lipid layer, diffusing into the skin leaving behind a silky feel. Healing also takes place because of the high proportion of naturally occurring vitamin E within it and its naturally occurring anti-inflammatory properties.
7. Organic Meadowfoam Oil
I refer to Meadowfoam oil as one of the 'new generation' of natural skincare moisturizers. It is widely used in skincare products because it is moisturising, extremely stable, and capable of adhering and staying on the skin. It forms a moisture barrier and will assist the skin with preventing moisture loss and on top of that offers natural ultra violet protection and reduces wrinkles and the signs of ageing.
8. Organic Mango Butter
This exotic, tropical butter is relatively rare in the west, but it is being used more and more in natural skincare products due to its healing, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties. Mango butter rejuvenates skin due to presence of antioxidants. It helps to neutralize toxins, to generate skin cell renewal and prevents wrinkle formation.
Mango Butter also contains natural skin acids, which are excellent natural exoliators and gently remove dead skin from the surface of the body. It also contains nutritious skin vitamins such as vitamin A and high amounts of vitamins E, C, D, group B vitamins, folic acid, calcium, iron, magnesium. And this wonder butter also protects skin from sun damage.
9. Organic Palm Oil
Palm Oil is one of the best natural anti-ageing moisturizers as it contains the hard to find toctrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that helps the skin to fight free radicals, which damage the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles. It is added to skin care products not only for its anti-aging properties, but also because it provides deep moisturizing benefits making the skin soft and supple.
10. Organic Shea Butter
Shea Butter is unique because of its high content of fats, which act as a natural skin moisturiser.It is extremely high in Vitamins A, E & F and enhances cell regeneration and capillary circulation. Shea butter also moisturize the skin with all the essential elements it needs for balance, elasticity and tone.
