It’s no surprise that the organic skin care beauty market has exploded. Over the years, people have become more aware of what’s inside their skin care products and have begun to make better decisions about what they allow on their skin. As a result, hundreds of new skin care companies have formed to meet this new demand for safe, natural beauty products. Along with this growth also came a flood of natural beauty claims—creating a sort of Wild West of marketing jargon, promises, and misinformation. To help provide a little more transparency (and because we’re obsessed with skin care products), we scoured the internet and compiled this sortable list of the world’s top 69 truly organic skin care lines.
First, let’s be clear about what the terms “organic” and “natural” actually mean. Organic refers to something that was produced without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), sewage, ionizing radiation, as well as antibiotics and growth hormones. Natural means something that originally “existed in” or was “derived from” nature. Additionally, if something is “certified organic” or “certified natural,” then you’ll need to look at how that specific certifying agency defines those terms.
