40 Best Organic & Natural Skin Care Brands of 2021

It’s no surprise that the all-natural beauty market has exploded. Over the years, people have become more aware of what’s inside their products and have begun to make better decisions about what they allow on their skin. As a result, hundreds of new 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 these products), we scoured the internet and compiled this sortable list of the world’s top truly organic skin care lines.

First, let’s be clear about what the terms 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 2020! You’ll find a few more awesome brands this year! At a minimum, all organic skin care lines on this 2020 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 ingredients: Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, PEG compounds, Petrochemicals & Mineral Oils, Ethoxylated Ingredients, as well as Synthetic Fragrances & Dyes. With that settled, now you’re free to indulge in this ultimate list of 2020’s most delicious concoctions.
