We all want to use products with natural ingredients. But we also want to use products that really work. This is especially true for skincare. Your skin is your largest organ and absorbs much of what is put on it, penetrating your blood stream. What you put on your skin should be the same quality as what you put in your body. In other words, read skincare ingredient labels just as you would food labels.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite skincare brands who take natural ingredients seriously and create products that deliver real results. Plus, our picks on where to buy them.
After founder Indie Lee overcame a brain tumor caused by environmental toxins, she created a skincare line using the best natural ingredients without compromising efficacy. Her Facial Oil uses olive-derived squalene oil to improve skin’s tone, texture and brightness.
Kypris uses natural, wildcrafted ingredients rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and CoQ10 in their facial oils, serums, masks and cleansers. Their Beauty Elixir boasts over 1000 roses in each bottle to bring luster and glow to dry skin.
May Lindstrom’s highly concentrated formulas use organic, bio-dynamic and sustainable ingredients and are hand bottled in micro-batches to ensure quality. Her cult favorite Honey Mud uses raw wildflower honey, hallosite clay and plant oils to deeply clean, nourish and hydrate, leaving skin dewy and fresh.
