Natural body cream vs Conventional body cream: Which is the best option for your skin?


When choosing a body cream for men , it is important to consider the ingredients it contains and how they affect our skin.

In today's market, we can find a wide variety of options, but we can classify them into two main categories:

In this article, we'll explore the differences between the two and help you determine which is the best option for your skin.


    Natural and ecological body cream

    A natural body cream, like our Bare Man for men, is one that is formulated with natural and organically grown ingredients .

    An organic cream should always be formulated without petroleum-derived oils such as paraffins, petroleum jelly, etc.

    It must also be made without such controversial preservatives as parabens, triclosan, phenoxyethanol... and without other additives that can be harmful to your skin and the environment.

    Instead, a natural and organic body cream only uses vegetable oils such as almond, rosehip and argan oil, which are known for their beneficial antioxidant and anti-aging properties for your skin.

    Differences between a natural body cream and a conventional body cream

    The hydrating power of vegetable oils over the petroleum-derived oils used in conventional body creams has been proven.

    Oils derived from petroleum are a byproduct of petroleum refining and are inert, that is, they do not have any active ingredients for your skin (neither vitamins, nor proteins, nor any type of nutrient).

    On the other hand, vegetable oils not only penetrate and hydrate your skin in a more effective and healthy way, but they are also great antioxidants that nourish your skin with vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, proteins, etc.

    • Benefits for the skin :
      The natural active ingredients present in an organic body cream , such as our Bare Man for men , offer great benefits for your skin. Extracts such as ginger, tone your skin due to its firming power. Argan oil is a great antioxidant and nourishing, as well as acacia extract, all of which are present in our Bare Man body cream for men.

      It is also important to highlight the specific benefits of essential oils. Essential oils, as their name indicates, are the essence of the plant, and are very powerful and highly effective active concentrates.

      Essential oils are also the element that constitutes the fragrance of the body cream. The aroma of an essential oil will always be much rounder and more complete than that of a synthetic perfume.
    • Fragrances:
      Body creams with essential oils can have different fragrances depending on the different essential oils they contain.

      Each essential oil has its own characteristic aroma, whether floral, citrus, herbal, woody or spicy. By combining different essential oils in a body cream, a wide range of natural and 100% healthy fragrances can be achieved.

      In addition, essential oils contain therapeutic properties. Some essential oils contained in our Bare Man body cream for men not only have anti-aging properties, but also have relaxing properties.

      Essential oils are very powerful plant extracts and their natural aromatic compounds are famous because they make their fragrance combinations unique and very pleasant.
    • Less irritation:
      By avoiding using harsh chemicals, natural, eco-friendly body creams are less likely to cause skin irritation or sensitivity. This makes them an excellent option for people with sensitive skin or those prone to allergic reactions.


    Conventional body cream

    Conventional body creams are made with a series of ingredients that do not have to be of plant origin, some of which are highly controversial for being harmful to your skin and the environment.

    • Petroleum derivatives:
      As we have already mentioned before, oils derived from petroleum, such as paraffins, silicone oils, petroleum jelly, etc., are obtained through petroleum refining.

      They are byproducts of refining, which are used in conventional cosmetic products because they are cheaper than vegetable oils.

      However, numerous studies have shown that oils derived from petroleum cause an occlusive layer on our skin, preventing us from perspiring .

      This causes the hydration of the lower layers of our skin to rise to the upper layer, thus dehydrating the lower layers, and thus causing premature aging of our skin.

    • Undesirable chemical agents:
      Unlike natural body creams, conventional body creams contain synthetic ingredients in their formulas.

      These ingredients can include ethoxylated emulsifiers, texturizing agents, and controversial synthetic preservatives such as parabens, EDTA, BHT and BHA, which do not have a good reputation due to their negative effects on our health and the environment.

    • Synthetic perfumes:
      The synthetic perfumes or fragrances used in conventional body creams are a laboratory copy of some of the aromatic molecules of essential oils extracted from plants. An essential oil can have between 80 and 120 different molecules.

      On the other hand, a synthetic perfume only contains 4 or 5 natural molecules. Therefore, a natural fragrance made with essential oils will always be much more rounded and pleasant than a synthetic perfume, in addition to taking advantage of the active ingredients of essential oils for your skin.

      In addition, synthetic perfumes contain other fixative elements such as phthalates, which are very controversial as they are classified as endocrine disruptors, and are even prohibited in plastic toys that children can put in their mouths.

      Unfortunately, these types of phthalates are not yet banned for use in cosmetic products.

    Therefore, our recommendation is that you always use a natural body cream with organic certification like our Bare Man , which also, being formulated specifically for men's skin, absorbs quickly and hydrates it without leaving it greasy.

    If you are looking for a natural, nourishing, soothing body cream with natural fragrances, you will find Bare Man as your perfect ally for healthy and radiant skin.
