The benefits of natural ingredients on the skin have been proven many times over. However, there is a misconception that because it’s natural, everyone’s skin can tolerate it. This is simply not true. There are certain essential oils, natural butters and even natural colorants that are commonly used in these products which are actually skin irritants! And many natural skin care company owners do NOT have sensitive skin; therefore making difficult to know what works and doesn’t work for those with this skin type. Thus the birth of Desert Sierra Naturals.
Desert Sierra Naturals is the brainchild of Shermaine Davis-Harris, a chronic lifetime eczema sufferer. After years of dealing with products that were either medicinally scented or completely unscented, she decided to do the research to find ingredients which wouldn’t irritate her skin, but were scented and in some instances even fun (our Iced Lemon Danish Lotion which smells just like a buttery pastry is one example)! She sampled many different oils and butters and realized that some of those which have been long represented as specifically being for sensitive skin, severely irritated hers. So she made some samples and tested them on…herself. If there was even the slightest irritation, it was tossed. After sharing her samples with friends, she realized she was not alone.
These paraben, petroleum, phthalate and SLS free products feature some of Mother Nature’s most gentle ingredients like Mango Butter and Organic Sea Kelp. They have been designed to pamper the skin AND feature amazing scents – something that has been long been a difficult combination for those with sensitive skin to find.
These amazing products are currently sold online at www.desertsierranaturals.com.
