Skincare Formulation Matters: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

Looking for effective and clean skincare in the age of information can be overwhelming at best, and migraine-inducing at worst. When products have dozens of ingredients listed, many of which have both positive and negative feedback across various reviewers and websites (not to mention names you can’t even begin to pronounce!) It can definitely make narrowing down which product you should use much more daunting than actually waxing your kitty in the first place! 

The best thing to remember in your search is that while ingredients themselves are extremely important, the formula matters most. Certain ingredients may work wonderfully in small amounts, or become more effective when mixed with another ingredient. Some ingredients may do more harm than good on their own, but become a powerful tool when added to the mix. A perfect example of this is coconut oil. Some beauty bloggers completely vilify it, but many people absolutely love and swear by it. Us included! You can read more about our thoughts on coconut oil here

Here at Zandi Land, we like to think of concocting the perfect skincare like baking an awesome cake. On their own, each ingredient in a cake has different uses in the kitchen and won’t necessarily make you sick if you eat it on its own. But who wants to just eat a plate of baking powder?! Pass. Now mix that baking powder with sugar, vanilla extract, and a few other ingredients and you have a delicious treat you can’t wait to sink a fork into. Take out any of those key ingredients and you are left with something that probably isn’t even palatable and definitely won’t resemble a cake in a fancy bakery. Same goes for skincare! Just like your grandma’s favorite cake recipe, once the correct mix of ingredients is found and put together, a pathway to happy skin is created. 

Just as you wouldn’t trust a lawyer to bake you a pastry masterpiece, you should leave creating skincare products in the capable hands of the skin experts. DIY skincare can be a great and cost effective solution for simple problems, but as with any issue under the hood, you don’t want to play a game of roulette! All of our products are professionally formulated, sourced, and filled in a certified laboratory. Don’t get us wrong, we love making cakes (and eating them too!), but we rely on the pros to fill your products.
