For anyone who is perplexed by the long list of chemicals on your face washes, toners and moisturizers, you’re not alone. Maybe you’re wondering why your skin isn’t getting any better despite trying the best cleansers on the market, you have a specific skin issue that is flaring up due to what you suspect is the chemicals in your skincare or you just want to decrease the amount of chemicals entering your body.
Whatever the reason is for wanting to get away from the chemical-riddled products you own, organic face cleansers could be the solution. They’re made of a short list of ingredients that are listed simply on the back. You’ll probably know what most of the ingredients are—plants, like eucalyptus and aloe vera, and blends of essential oils. That’s comforting in and of itself.
When we found three organic face cleansers, we noticed that they’re all cruelty free, not testing on animals and vegan. That’s also something to feel good about. One of the soaps we picked can also be used as a body wash and shaving lotion. Another option goes a long way. It’s a potent cleanser that you only have to use a small amount of, and it might last longer than your last cleanser. All of our picks are trying to restore and improve your skin naturally, so you won’t reek of harsh acne chemicals or won’t feel weird from slathering on chemical-filled anti-aging products.
