When we are looking for the best organic facial products we are sure to find a wide variety of brands and products available. The amount of choice can be overwhelming, so how do we find the best ones?
First we need to by-pass the fake organics, the brands claiming to be natural but in reality, are still using toxic chemical ingredients. Words like “organic”, “natural”,”pure”, “hypoallergenic”, “unscented” and “non-toxic” can be used with no consensus on what these words actually mean.
We need to learn to read ingredients lists, so we can recognize the ingredients we want to avoid. We need to check out how products rate on EWG’s Skin deep Database. We need to shop at stores that only carry purely natural products.
Researching and reading can take hours. Finding great organic facial products can be a daunting task, if you don’t know where to look. Luckily for you, I have done the research and searched the internet to bring you the best organic facial products on the market.
Brands to Avoid
There are a lot of fake organic brands out there. They may be labeled “organic” or “natural” but they still contain toxic chemicals.
There is no regulation on using the terms “organic” and “natural”. The only way to be sure something is truly natural is to put on your detective lenses and read the ingredients list.
You could also check for organic seals such as USDA certified organic. Many organic seals have strict guidelines that products must meet in order to receive their seal.
To make it easier for you, I will tell you some fake organic brands to avoid, ones that use petrochemicals and synthetic preservatives in their products:
- Burt’s Bees
- Nature’s Gate
- JASON Pure Natural and Organic
- Avalon Organics
- Dessert Essence Organics
- Kiss My Face
- Earth’s Best Organic
- Goodstuff Organics
The Best Brands
There is one easy way to find products that are produced under strict standards by companies that care about your health and the health of the earth, and that is to go to online stores that curate the best organic products around. These shops include Spirit Beauty Lounge and The Detox Market.
I have scoured the internet, spending hours upon hours reading and researching. I have used organic facial products for over a decade, having read so many ingredients lists, it has become second nature to me.
I am happy to say that there are brands available that I feel safe using. I feel pleased knowing that these brands uphold a high level quality and safety. After many years of searching, I now know what brands and products really are the best. Here is my list of the best organic brands available online (click the links to read my reviews):

What Facial Products do we Need?
- A cleanser is essential for getting makeup, sunscreen, oil, dirt and pollutants off of our faces.
- A toner will help remove any left over cleanser residue and oil that may have been missed. It will help tighten our pores and leave our skin prepped to adsorb the nutrients in our serum.
- A water-based serum is an excellent way to deliver serious nutrients to the skin and act as an anti-aging treatment.
- Finally, a moisturizer seals the deal. It holds moisture in our skin and acts as a protective barrier.
- Optional products are masks and exfoliates. These are products that you will only be using a couple times a week. Masks pull gunk from your pores and exfoliates get rid of dead skin cells, revealing the new skin cells underneath.
