Skin Care Product Reviews & Research

Product Reviews: We believe that clean skin care is the best skin care. That’s why we find, research, and review only the best organic + natural skin care products and brands. Our team diligently researches skin care brands, brand claims, as well as product ingredients and formulations in order to identify truly organic + natural products. Products must meet our high standards in order to make it into our top lists. Thus, our articles will never include products which contain potentially harmful, irritating, or questionable ingredients.

Skin Care Tips: Let’s face it—there’s a lot of questionable skin care advice on the web. Even skin care experts like dermatologists and aestheticians often offer contradictory information on various skin care topics. To solve this problem, our team researches and aggregates the best skin care information available to bring you practical advice based on reputable scientific studies, skin care experts, and real-world results.

Welcome to Skin Care Ox!

As someone who loves clean skin care and strives to live a non-toxic lifestyle, I was astonished at the amount of misinformation that exists about natural + organic skin care. There are so many companies using terms like “clean,” “green,” and “non-toxic”. However, if you take one good look at the ingredient labels from many popular “organic” skin care brands, you’ll often discover cheap fillers, irritants, and even ingredients that have been linked to a number of serious health issues. I began to wonder, “why wasn’t anyone talking about this?” Thus, I decided to use my background in data analytics, research, and biomedical engineering to separate the truly great brands from the snake oil salesmen. I would often share my findings with family and friends and they were shocked to find that some of their beloved products were not as “clean” as they thought.

Additionally, I found it difficult to find solid skin care advice on the web. I would often find myself having to read four or five different online articles, a few scientific studies, and anecdotal stories before I found skin care advice that I could trust.

Instead of having to wade through countless articles and scientific studies, I thought that there needed to be a source for unbiased, reliable, and practical skin care information aggregated from the best sources on the web. Afterall, the answers to our most pressing skin care questions are already out there—if you know where and how to look.

That’s why I founded Skin Care Ox.

Each article that we create is a labor of love. It is my sincere hope that this website makes it easier for you to find truly clean skin care products and great skin care advice.

Sincerely,

Diane Elizabeth
