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.

#1 Herbivore

Founded in 2011 in Seattle, WA, Herbivore has since grown into a trusted brand for non-toxic and highly effective skin care products. Herbivore’s products offer much more than just marketing and buzzwords. You won’t find any fillers or toxic ingredients on their ingredients list (meaning every single ingredient is actively working to benefit the skin). Instead, you’ll only find luxurious (and effective) ingredients like French ink clay, Brazilian gemstones, rare Blue Tansy, and other botanicals in each beautifully packaged product.

Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask $48 (2.3 oz)

A Herbivore fan favorite (and, in my opinion, hands down the best product Herbivore offers) for those looking for a natural, gentle, and super effective chemical exfoliator. The mask combines luxurious and rare ingredients like blue-tansy (anti-inflammatory) with white willow bark (natural BHA: beta hydroxy acids and salicylic acid), fruit enzymes (high in AHA: alpha hydroxyl acid), and aloe leaf. Together, these ingredients create one of the best facial masks for acne prone, aging, and sun damaged skin.

Phoenix Facial Oil $32 (.3 oz)

Another gem, Herbivore’s Phoenix facial oil contains no fillers or non-essential ingredients. Instead, this powerful oil is packed with only the best organic and natural ingredients like CoQ10 (for collagen production), rosehip seed oil, Moroccan rose damascena, sea buckthorn oil, meadowfoam oil, and neroli oil.
