Why Natural Skin Care?

Natural skin care products have a wide range of benefits and have become increasingly popular over the last few years for a variety of reasons. Some choose natural skincare brands as a more sustainable option to synthetically produced, artifical fragrances filled chemical based formulations.  Synthetic skincare products have the potential to irritate our skin and bodies, and harm plants and animals when they re-enter our eco-systems, putting a great deal of stress on the environment. Others use natural products because they are an effective, plant-based alternative to animal-derived ingredients.

In fact, natural and organic skin care is for everyone, as we are all becoming increasingly aware of the environment and consumers demand clarity and simplicity from skin care brands, keen to understand exactly what we put on our skin.

Sereia is a natural skincare brand with a range of nine products. Vegan friendly, cruelty free and packed with natural, sustainably sourced ingredients, our products are designed to be used on their own, or as part of a regular self care ritual which you can do at home. Whichever Sereia products you choose to add to your body care routine, we know you will love them because they are kind to skin, leaving it feeling healthy and moisturised, as well as looking and smelling beautiful.



How can I take care of my skin naturally?

The best way to take care of skin naturally is by cleansing the skin daily with clean warm water, rather than hot water, using products that are gentle and safe to use on all skin types, including sensitive skin. Using a natural skin care product means that you can be sure the ingredients you put on your skin are as kind to animals and the planet as they are to your body.

As a part of your natural skin care routine, regular exfoliation helps to renew the skin’s natural defence barrier by buffing away dead skin cells, and will improve the skin’s absorption of any natural beauty products you apply after cleansing. Using a gentle natural exfoliator, such as Sereia’s Smoothing Body Polisher, will do just this. With sustainably sourced ingredients such as sea salt, jojoba oils, vegetable collagen and seaweed extract, this powerful yet gentle exfoliator is wonderful for skin care, leaving it feeling silky smooth and looking healthy, without a synthetic chemical that could irritate the surface layers of the skin.

After cleansing and exfoliating, as a part of your skin care regime, it is important to always hydrate the skin. Massage any body oil or butter onto the skin. Choosing a product with ingredients that doesn’t contain a synthetic chemical makes it suitable to everyone, including very sensitive skin and combination skin. Sereia has several vegan friendly options to support skin naturally as part of your body care ritual. Try Sereia’s luxuriously nourishing Firming Body Oil - a light textured oil that contains natural ingredients including jojoba oil and seaweed extract. Our formula is enriched with vitamin E and cruelty free vegetable collagen to leave your with skin glowing with a beautiful natural fragrance.

For another drench of moisture, use Sereia Shape & Tone Body Butter. This beautifully textured rich formula is packed with completely ingredients and contains vegan friendly shea butter, cocoa butter, seaweed extract, sea buckthorn, guarana seed extract and cruelty free vegetable collagen. Both our Firming Body Oil and Shape & Tone Body Butter are best applied to damp skin after a warm bath or shower. Massage the product onto the area gently for hydrated skin with a smoothed appearance.



Is natural skincare better for your skin?

Natural and organic skin care products are better for your skin because they don’t contain any un-natural products that may irritate the skin or possibly even cause an allergic reaction. Using plant based ingredients that are as pure as possible, makes it simpler for us to understand what we put on our skin, and as such they are safer and kinder to our bodies.

Organic beauty products with plant based ingredients are vegan friendly and cruelty free. They can be used on practically all skin types, from normal or combination skin, to dry or sensitive skin. Within this category of beauty products you’ll find many simple and natural ingredients, such as shea butter and cocoa butter, natural botanical and essential oils such as aloe vera, rosehip oil, blue tansy (azulene) and coconut oil, and other nourishing extracts such as guarana seed and sea buckthorn, all of which have fantastic benefits to the skin.



Which natural skin care brand is best?

Sereia Skincare is a new skincare brand that has a whole host of natural skincare products to offer, helping you to create a complete skincare routine from top to toe!

Sereia products are rich in 100% natural ingredients such as cruelty free vegetable collagen, which helps the body to build healthy, smooth skin. Peach, grape and jojoba oils to intensely nourish the skin, and sea buckthorn, guarana seed and seaweed extracts, all of which help to promote natural skin.

We choose natural ingredients and cruelty free, vegan ingredients because it’s important to us that everyone is able to enjoy our skin care products. Our products are formulated by natural skin care experts, and because we only use plant based ingredients, they are safe to use by any skin type, including combination skin, dry skin and even sensitive skin.

Sereia Skin Care believes that everyone deserves to feel confident in their real skin. This is why our products are formulated to help make skin look its best: nourished and glowing. The sea has an abundance of goodness to offer, which is why when creating our skin care products we chose marine nutrients from marine algae and bladderwrack seaweed extract for their mighty skin nourishing and skin hydrating properties. Seaweed is one of the fastest growing organisms in the world and is available in abundance. Seaweed’s endless ability to regenerate itself, ability to retain moisture and superb skin nourishing properties make it one of our favourite natural and sustainable ingredients.

In addition, coastal ingredients, those found close to the sea and our beaches, also offer many skin nourishing benefits. This is where we find another favourite ingredient, sea buckthorn extract. We value all of these ingredients for their soothing, hydrating and detoxifying properties, meaning including them in our products makes them beneficial to both our skin and the environment.



Which natural skincare products are good for the skin on the body?

Look out for skin care products which contain natural and organic ingredients such as cocoa butter, jojoba oils, shea butter, vitamin E, and vegetable collagen. The good news is that each Sereia product contains many or all of these lovely ingredients, so you can choose the products that are right for you and the skin!

Sereia’s Body Cleansing Bars, Firming Body Oil and Shape & Tone Body Butter all leave the skin feeling hydrated, thanks to sustainably sourced natural ingredients which are carefully formulated by our skin experts, so you know your skin is in good hands.



What are the 3 most important skin care products?

The three most important steps to looking after the skin on the body are exfoliation, cleansing and rehydration. All Sereia products are created and formulated with this in mind, so you can be assured your skin is being cared for at every stage.

Our natural sisal Dry Body Brush is a perfect way to exfoliate, sweeping away skin cells and kick-starting the circulation to promote firm skin. Our Smoothing Body Polisher is also a great way to revitalise dull skin in the shower. It contains skin nourishing essential oils of jojoba, peach and grape, as well as seaweed extract and vegetable collagen to help build a natural skin surface.

To cleanse, our Body Cleansing Bars are soap free and leave all skin types feeling fresh and toned. In the Sereia skin care range there are three gentle Body Cleansing Bars to choose from, each with a natural exfoliator such as poppy seeds, coconut shavings and bamboo powder, to gently buff away dead skin cells. Each bar also contains sunflower oil and marine nutrients to deeply nourish, so skin isn’t left feeling dry after use.

Sereia’s Body Cleansing Bar Soap can be used with the Sereia Smoothing Body Mitt. Particularly good for uneven skin texture, or lumps and bumps due to unwanted cellulite, the unique design of the Smoothing Mitt enhances the cleansing action of our Cleansing Bars by kick-starting the circulation and lymphatic system, which is effective in targeting cellulite, creating a smoothed and sleeker silhouette. This makes the Smoothing Body Mitt ideal for use on the thighs, bottom and tummy area, as well as the upper body.

Any skincare routine should finish with a skin-nourishing hydrator. Sereia’s range has a variety of moisture-boosting products to offer, including the Shape & Tone Body Butter and the Firming Body Oil. Both 100% natural skin care products are without synthetic chemicals, vegan friendly and cruelty free, and will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Try using the Firming Oil on damp skin. Simply massage this light-textured body oil into the skin to leave it feeling hydrated and glowing. A favourite among beauty bloggers, our Firming Oil contains natural jojoba oil, coconut oil, vitamin E and vegetable collagen, and can be used on normal, combination, dry and even sensitive skin.

Shape & Tone Body Butter is a natural formulation rich in naturally hydrating ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, vegetable collagen, seaweed extract and guarana seeds. When massaged into the skin, Shape & Tone Body Butter leaves skin feeling super hydrated, without worrying about harsh chemicals.
