Qual è la migliore crema per il corpo

What is the best body cream

Body cream is an indispensable product, that's why you need it to be the best and you are constantly looking for the one that has the most satisfying characteristics. If, on the other hand, you are satisfied with a commercial cream, you probably don't know all the main functions that a body cream must have.

But what is it really best body cream ?

Clearly, one natural cream : this is where the so-called INCI comes into play, i.e. the list of cosmetic ingredients expressed according to a standard nomenclature.
Through this list you can find out if a cream contains chemical ingredients that are harmful to the skin or do not help it in its proper nourishment.

Did you know that product ingredients are listed in order of quantity present in the product?

This is why it is important that the formulation has a good percentage of natural and non-synthetic ingredients, even better if these ingredients are certified and recognized by organizations such as Natrue or Bioagricert .

When a product is classified as natural, it means that most of the ingredients are of plant origin and therefore have numerous properties that are good for your skin.

Often, you will find the names described in Latin: they are the botanical names of the plants present in the Pharmacopoeia, the majority of the active ingredients are instead expressed in English and there is only one word in French, namely parfum.

However, if you have any doubts about substances and you don't know their properties, you can always consult the biodictionary .

What are the ingredients that it is better not to find in the INCI?

sls/sles, silicones, parabens, mineral oils, isothiazolinones, artificial colors, synthetic perfumes.

SLS and SLES are extremely aggressive surfactants, i.e. substances contained in conventional cosmetics to dissolve dirt. Silicones, petrolatum and parabens are all ingredients that at first seem to work and give the skin hydration, but their prolonged use can have negative consequences on the skin.

How to recognize them?

  • silicones they can be identified within the INCI through the suffix -one or -silozane
  • Petrolatum they are better known as: petrolatum, paraffinum liquidum, vaseline.
  • Parabens instead they are known as: propyl-paraben, methyl-paraben and so on.

"I used the cream for the first time in a hotel in Tuscany and it was love at first spread. On that occasion I bought the 200 ml tube and it ran out in a short time, so the subsequent purchases were the 500 ml dispenser. I use it every day morning and evening, the skin remains silky and non-greasy like many other creams. After a shower, I can't do without it!"

From the first application, after a few hours, the skin is smooth and nourished."
