Listen, I get it. The world of natural and organic skincare can be confusing as hell. Tons of brands label their products “non-toxic,” “green,” and/or “clean,” but in reality, those terms don’t mean anything because they’re not regulated by the FDA. Yup, shock, and awe. That’s not to say everything you see on your favorite product label is a lie – it just means that as a consumer, you need to do your own research when it comes to buying natural and organic skincare.
But because beauty should be fun, not a thesis-level research project, I did the work for you and rounded up the 5 best organic and natural skin care products below. They’re all from trusted brands that work closely with third-party certification agencies (like the USDA, COSMOS, and ECOCERT) to ensure that everything from their packaging to their ingredients is safe for your skin and the planet. Your face (and conscience) are about to feel really, really good. Japanese shears will always come in handy when it comes to cosmetics. They can be helpful to open a new package or fix something on yourself. All these items are so good, almost like car painting services in Glendale. Everything looks perfect!
THIS NATURAL LIP BALM
Avalon Organics Intense Defense Lip Balm
I’m a firm believer that everyone should be using a lip balm with natural and/or organic ingredients. I mean, you put that ish on your mouth multiple times a day, so it’s bound to get into your body somehow, right?? Luckily, this clean lip balm from Avalon Organics is only $4, so there’s really no excuse for not using it instead of a conventional one. The formula will leave your lips feeling like butter, thanks to organic coconut oil and jojoba oil.
THIS NATURAL FACE MOISTURIZER
Follain Moisturizer Replenish + Protect
I like to think of Follain as the Sephora of the organic skincare world. The online and brick-and-mortar retailer vets and sells tons of incredible natural and organic brands—and now they’re making their own skincare products. I’m personally obsessed with the moisturizer—it’s made with bakuchiol (an all-natural retinol alternative), hydrating hyaluronic acid, and nourishing rosehip oil to make skin feel crazy smooth.
THIS NATURAL VITAMIN C SERUM
Ursa Major Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum
No joke: This natural vitamin C serum from organic skincare brand Ursa Major is just as potent as the ones you would get in a derm’s office. The magic? A stable form of ascorbic acid (a type of vitamin C), organic rosehip seed extract, and edelweiss flower extract—all of which work together to reduce free radical damage and brighten hyperpigmentation, like dark spots and melasma.

On the off chance that you’re into coconut oil, Kopari is unquestionably the natural skincare brand you need in your life. Everything in the line is made with unadulterated, natural, 100% coconut oil that is economically sourced from the Philippines. The item to attempt first? This coconut-imbued body milk, which relaxes and hydrates skin however never feels oily or tacky.
THIS NORMAL FACIAL CLEANSER
Osmia Dark Dirt Facial Cleanser
On the off chance that the prospect of utilizing bar cleanser all over appears to be insane/net/mountain man-ish, then, at that point, you haven’t attempted this one from natural skincare brand Osmia. I began utilizing it a couple of years prior when I was managing hormonal skin inflammation, and it has been a staple of my skincare routine from that point forward. It’s made with explaining dark earth and dead ocean mud—in addition to natural almond and avocado oils to help saturate and calm your skin while absorbing overabundance oils. Furthermore, dissimilar to conventional bar cleansers, it’s zero percent drying or aggravating.
