TOP 6 VEGAN ORGANIC CLEANSERS

Many vegan organic cleaners come in two varieties: foaming and non-foaming. One common foaming agent commonly used by health conscious brands is coco-glucoside (an ingredient created by the combination of coconut oil and fruit sugars). Coco-glucoside is a safe, gentle, and effective ingredient for foaming, cleansing, and conditioning the skin. However, not all cleansers need to have a foam or lather in order to be effective! Non-foaming cleansers are equally great and super simple to use (just apply to a cotton pad, wipe your face, and rinse). Instead of using soap, non-foaming cleansers use organic essential oils, teas, and powerful extracts to work their magic.

SW BASICS: CLEANSER

Cleansers don’t get much simpler than this. Made from three simple ingredients (organic rosewater, organic tea tree oil, and organic vegetable glycerin) the S.W. Basics Cleanser is the perfect solution for people with sensitive, acne-prone, and problem skin. This vegan organic cleanser contains no soap or harsh chemicals and it works a bit differently than traditional cleansers. Fans of this product swear that it leaves their face feeling squeaky clean and soft.

(Note: differences in the ingredient quantities can lead to different results between the two products). The subtle combination of rosewater and tea tree oil make this a perfect vegan organic face wash for sensitive and acne-prone skin types.

TOP 6 VEGAN ORGANIC TONERS

Toners are amazing skin care products for all skin types. Depending on the ingredients toners can shrink pores, lock in moisture, balance your skin’s pH levels, thoroughly remove residual makeup, and wipe away dirt on the skin.

On the other hand, dry and sensitive skin types should avoid toners that use alcohol and, instead, look for moisturizing toners with aloe vera, vegetable glycerin, or lavender oil.

TOP 6 VEGAN ORGANIC EXFOLIATORS

When supermodel Christie Brinkley was asked to list her most important skin care habits, she listed daily exfoliation as a major contributor to her flawless skin over the years (she’s over 60 years old).

Whichever you choose, make sure that it contains the highest quality vegan organic ingredients.
