100% Natural Skin Care

25 Of The Best Organic Skin Care Products You Need To Have

This article was first published in PopSugar.com by Kristin Granero.

This all-natural, organic daily serum is packed with vital greens (inspired by my love of green juicing). It contains oat grass juice for the lymphatic system, chlorophyll for oxygenation, and vitamins A, C, E, and F found in leafy greens, along with hyaluronic acid. My favorite ingredient is galactoarabinan, derived from the larch tree. It causes more cell turnover than glycolic [acid] but is also anti-inflammatory, so it doesn’t cause irritation, even in sensitive skin.” – Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection

The soothing lavender scent also smells amazing.” — Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, founder and director of Capital Laser and Skin Care and associate clinical professor, Department of Dermatology at the George Washington University Medical Center

It is an oil and rose water spray that is perfect for adding nutrition and shine to the hair. I just spray the oil on my brush and do blowouts with it or use as a finishing shine spray.

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek

“RMS was one of the first ‘green beauty’ brands on the scene to offer highly pigmented color. These certified organic lip/cheek color pots can be layered for buildable color and are made of good-for-you ingredients (such as coconut and sunflower seed oils) so you’re nourishing your lips with every wear. No nonsynthetic color product is going to last all day, but RMS gets the closest.” – Denno

Pai Skincare Avocado and Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream

“I was introduced to this day cream several years ago by Jessica Richards, the owner of my favorite Brooklyn-based beauty destination, Shen Beauty. I love the scent (jasmine and may chang oils) and the texture (hydrating but not greasy), and it’s made from organic ingredients. I use it in the morning after an antioxidant serum and before applying my sunscreen.” – Erin Gilbert, MD, founder of Gilbert Dermatology

Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil Mist
$24
from Ulta

“This mist is a 100 percent natural custom oil blend of olive, sunflower, and borage oils. It is unlike other sprays with silicones because instead of creating a barrier, it actually nourishes to help you achieve softer, smoother, shinier hair. You can use it on dry hair before shampooing, add it to conditioner, or use it when dry styling. It is extremely versatile and you can never really do too much.” – George Papanikolas, hairstylist

Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil Mist ($24)

Rahua Shampoo

“I love this gentle shampoo for a 100 percent natural way to cleanse the scalp and remove build-up all without drying my ends. Plant-derived and sustainably sourced ingredients from the Amazon help to silken and protect. It can take a week or two to really feel the benefits, but after that, it’s the gift that keeps on giving, leaving you with luxurious shine, strong strands, and a superhealthy scalp!” – Patricia Nigro, expert colorist at Butterfly Studio Salon

True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask

“If you don’t go to the facialist for regular microdermabrasion or peels, then removing dead skin cells off at home is a must. This gentle, fruit-acid-based mask really works to loosen that dull top layer, which allows your active products to really get into the deeper layers and provide hydration and cell renewal. It’s super easy to use – just slather it on once a week and remove with a wet washcloth after 10-20 minutes. You’ll see an immediate difference!” – Denno

True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask ($90)

Tata Harper Purifying Mask

Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow

“These certified-organic eye shadows are the best on the green beauty market. They’re a little pricier than other shadows, but if you’re looking for seamless blendability with only the highest level of ingredients (like rosehip oil and shea butter), these are your best bet.” – Denno
