Although clean skincare seems to have emerged in recent years, its earliest inception is not entirely new. There is written evidence of plant-based oils used in beautification spanning back 3,500 years in early Egypt. With this in mind, delving into history is relevant to where it has evolved. To understand why people living a cleaner lifestyle demanded this evolution, it is necessary to acknowledge what skin needs to remain healthy and therefore, youthful in an ever-changing industrialized world. How the new thinking paradigm gave people clean skincare is reverse engineering of what was learned in the past. By looking at indigenous sources and people, it can be seen that every culture in time has utilized what has been accessible in their habitat to heal and regenerate skin.
