20 Best Organic Face Masks of 2021 (For Every Skin Concern)
WRITTEN BY: DIANE ELIZABETH K. | PUBLISHED: 05/12/2017 | LAST UPDATED: 12/03/2020
What’s not to love about an effective and truly organic face mask? Not only are organic masks little luxurious at-home spa treats, they are also powerful routine treatments for our skin.
Benefits of Organic Face Masks
For example, using a gently formulated fruit enzyme and alpha hydroxy organic face mask a few times per week can work wonders for those with acne-prone skin and acne scarring. Mature skin types can get a boost of radiance from masks that contain ingredients which boost cell turnover and stimulate collagen production (like tamanu oil, avocado oil, and vitamin c). Even those with very dry skin can achieve glowing dewy skin by routinely using masks with ingredients like rose oil, fruit enzymes, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid. Additionally, almost any skin type can benefit from a simple weekly clay mask that removes dead skin, kills acne-causing bacteria, unclogs pores, and reduces redness.
20 Best Organic Face Masks
The organic masks on this list contain nothing from the list of “bad guy” ingredients (like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, mineral oils, peg compounds, and ethoxylated ingredients) which are no good for your skin and have been linked to cancer. Instead, these organic masks will bathe your skin with essential fatty acids, vitamins, fruit enzymes, clays, and essential oils that work to nourish and renew the skin’s appearance from the inside out.
Remember, just because an ingredient is organic and all-natural doesn’t mean that won’t irritate your skin. Each mask has been formulated to treat specific skin concerns (like dry skin, acne, wrinkles, scars, etc.) so be sure to read the tips for each mask and choose the best ones for your skin type. Happy masking!

This organic mask is so intense (in a good way) that it warms when you mix it! The rich dark powder of raw cacao, activated bamboo charcoal, and red sea salt transforms into a heavenly mousse when water is added to the mix.

This all natural face mask is called the Synergie because it delivers four potent results: detoxification, exfoliation, brightening, and firmness.

This 100% organic mask is made with super simple, yet powerful ingredients which gently exfoliate, plump, and firm the skin. The lead active ingredient in this mask is raw California wildflower honey along with a bounty of enzymatic berries like blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, black raspberries, schisandra berries, and aronia berries.

A really potent botanical clay mask designed for oily, acne, blackhead and blemish-prone skin. This mask should really be used more like a monthly treatment than a routine mask.

Just mix the powder with your favorite liquid (such as green tea, apple cider vinegar, or honey), apply the burgundy red mask to your face, and gently rinse once dry. You can get creative and create your own mask too. Try mixing 1 tsp organic aloe powder (reduces redness) + 1 tsp of organic matcha green tea powder (antioxidant) + 1 tablespoon of brewed chamomile tea (calming) with 1 tsp of this hibiscus mask.
