Best Organic Face Moisturizers: The Complete List for 2017

Best Organic Face Moisturizers: The Complete List for 2018

Looking for a safe, non-toxic, and gentle face moisturizer, but don’t know which organic products are legitimate? Need a hydrating organic facial moisturizer for the dry winter months that actually works? Just want to drool over pretty pictures of skin care products for fun? Either way, you’ve come to the right place!

The term “organic” means a lot of things to a lot of people. Organic simply means something that is grown without genetic modification, pesticides, chemical fertilizers + solvents, dyes, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Just because something is organic doesn’t necessarily mean that it is safe. In reality, very few skin care products contain 100% organic ingredients (even USDA certified organic products can contain as little as 95% organic material). Additionally, a product can market itself as “organic” while only containing a tiny amount of organically grown ingredients + a lot of cheap fillers. With so much ambiguity, it is important to carefully research the claims, ingredients, and companies behind each organic product—and that’s what we’ve done for this article!

We’ve researched hundreds of products to bring you this ultimate list of face moisturizers. All organic moisturizers on this list are made by reputable skin care brands, contain effective natural + organic ingredients, have a strong history of satisfied customer reviews, and are free from toxic chemicals like Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, PEG compounds, Petrochemicals & Mineral Oils, Synthetic fragrances + colors, and Ethoxylated Ingredients (these chemicals aren’t beneficial for the skin and some have been linked to serious illnesses). We also selected SPF moisturizers which use non-nano compounds for sunscreen protection.

Determining the best organic moisturizer for your face will depend upon your skin type and condition. Dry skin types should look for ingredients like rich organic oils (like coconut, avocado, argan, and olive oil), antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid (a powerful humectant that pulls moisture from the air into the skin). Those with oily skin will benefit from oil-free moisturizers, or moisturizers which contain ingredients like clay (absorbs oil) or oil-balancing oils like jojoba, grapeseed, sunflower, and carrot seed oil. Your skin is unique, so be sure to read the reviews and ingredients for each organic moisturizer carefully to find the best one for your particular skin needs. Enjoy!
