We’ve all heard about organic skin care products and brands, but are they really worth all of the hype? If you don’t mind paying for great skin care products (so long as they actually work!), then this is the list for you. No one likes getting suckered into paying top dollar for a product that turns out to be nothing more than fancy packaging and buzzwords. When it comes to organic skin care, however, there is definitely legitimate benefits behind all of the buzz. One common misconception is that organic skin care products are somehow less effective than their non-organic counterparts. In actuality, many luxury organic skin care products work as well or significantly better than conventional products. The best organic brands avoid using potentially toxic and skin-irritating chemicals like pesticides, ethoxylated ingredients, and parabens in their skin care products (which can actually harm the skin over time). Additionally, luxury brands take it one step further by combining the most powerful natural botanicals with the latest (and safest) science to create highly effective botanical blends.

So, if you’re looking for luxurious, safe, organic skin care products that can deliver game changing results then this list is for you. After painstakingly researching hundreds of organic skin care brands (let me tell you, it’s a jungle out there), we drafted this list of 14 luxury brands below based on the following criteria:

(1) Quality and quantity of organic and natural ingredients (2) Commitment to avoiding harmful ingredients

(3) Customer product reviews and (4) Clinical effectiveness of ingredients.

Top Rated Luxury Organic Skin Care Products

True Botanicals – Vitamin C Booster Powder ($90)

This is a really unique Vitamin C formula! While L-ascorbic acid is a great form of Vitamin C, it has some downsides including instability when combined with water and it can cause mild irritation at high concentrations. True Botanicals works around these downsides by creating a powder formula (no water) made with just L-ascorbic acid powder, ferulic acid powder, and tapioca starch. All you have to do is mix a little of this powder into water or your favorite serum and apply the fresh Vitamin C to your face. It is very effective at boosting collagen, brightening skin, and treating wrinkles.

This rich moisturizing cream is the flagship product of the RoseMira brand and remains their most popular and effective product today.

Ideal for anti-aging as the most positive online reviews for this product are from users with fine lines and wrinkles.

May Lindstrom products are the cream of the crop (the price is totally justified). This Jasmine Garden organic toner should be a staple in everyone's skin care routine. It is unbelievably calming, healing, and invigorating on the skin. The secret is a blend of healing ingredients like colloidal silver (anti-bacterial + anti-inflammatory), Bulgarian rose oil, jasmine, and witch hazel. This is a must try for acne prone and sensitive skin types.

This clearing serum is simply one of the best treatments for acne and blackheads. It's both powerful and all natural.

This serum contains no harmful chemicals, irritants, or fragrances.

The most popular product from the luxury organic skin care brand, True Botanicals.

This includes gotu kola (wrinkles), evening primrose (fine lines), bilberry (puffiness), and almond oil (dark circles) --just to name a few.

Kahina Giving Beauty – Organic Eye Serum ($78)

Using two organic eye serums in combination is a good way to treat the trifecta of conditions: dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. This organic serum is a great base for immediately de-puffing and tightening eyes in the morning. It's not incredibly moisturizing, so a moisturizing top cream is recommended; however, it is very effective at tightening and increasing circulation. Has a mild brightening effect as well, which is a nice bonus.

Herbivore – Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask ($48)

A gentle mask that features salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy fruit acids, and beta hydroxy acids to remove dead skin cells, clear excess oil, and unclogged pores.
