Best Organic Skin Care Brands of 2018: The Ultimate List
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.
We’ve updated our list for 2018! You’ll find a few more awesome brands this year! At a minimum, all organic skin care lines on this 2018 top list must have a strong history of happy customers (as indicated by product reviews), contain organic ingredients, and be free from most (if not all) of these harmful chemical ingredients: Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, PEG compounds, Petrochemicals & Mineral Oils, Ethoxylated Ingredients, as well as Synthetic Fragrances & Colors (these chemicals aren’t beneficial for the skin and many have been linked to cancer). With that settled, now you’re free to indulge in this ultimate list of 2018’s most delicious organic skin care concoctions.
