Here's 5 of the most trusted organic skincare brands, which have long abided by the principles of no petrochemicals, parabens and nasties.
For over 40 years, Dr.Hauschka has gained a reputation for its authentic commitment to nature. The company's products are made from pure and natural ingredients and it has an unrivalled reputation in the organic skincare industry with high quality products.
Dr Hauschka products were the first products I discovered more than 20 years ago and were a brilliant introduction to organic skincare. And many customers enjoy comfortable, radiant skin.
Check out some of Dr Hauschka's award winning products:
• Cleansing Cream
• Regenerating Serum
• Rose Day Cream
• Bronzing powder
Jurlique has long produced a clean living range of organic skincare products. The Australian organic skin care company, like Dr Hauschka. When I was in Australia, 10 years ago, I was amazed at the amount of fresh, natural products available. And it makes perfect sense, because Australia is so abundant with fresh, organic products of superior quality.
Jurlique's organic skincare does come at a price. The range is priced much more expensively than other brands, but organic skin care users loyal to Jurlique swear by its quality and wouldn't trade for anything else.
Here's a snapshot of some of Jurlique's award winning organic skincare products:
• Herbal Recovery Eye Gel
• Balancing Foaming Cleanser
• Moisture Replenishing Day Cream
• Purely Age-Defying Night Lotion
Jason's products are very functional and have a good reputation for being largely organic and natural without parabens and nasties. I discovered Jason more than 10 years ago. The company's shower gels are fantastic value. For £8 you used to be able to get a huge bottle with a pump and it would last for months. I think the company have wised up however, because it's recently repackaged all its organic body care and body moisturisers which again are fantastic value for the price. Jason has a reputation for being a leading personal skincare producer. One good thing about Jasons is that their haircare range works well unlike most other organic hair products.
Some of Jason's organic personal care showstoppers are:
• Satin Shower Body Wash pumps
• Hand and Body Moisturisers
• Daily Hair Care Shampoos and Moisturisers
I love Ren products. They are one of my favourite brands at the moment. I needed an organic skincare range that addressed the problem of my dry skin. Of course, dry skin can be the cause of a number of factors; hormonal imbalance, diet and nutrition and exercise. But I was inspired by Ren's no-nonsense approach to holistic skincare and the company's range is very superior. The Ren range is mid-price and their products last for a good few months.
Some of Ren's award winning products are:
• Morrocan Rose Otto Body Oil
• No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm
• Max Moisture Concentrate
• Rose O¹² Ultra-Moisture Serum
The Organic Pharmacy
I discovered The Organic Pharmacy years ago when the first UK store was opened at the quieter end of Kings Road in Chelsea. I was immediately drawn into the shop and felt purified by its fresh, clean approach to organic skincare. It's range is packed in glass jars and pots, which the company maintain keeps the product fresh. And you definitely know it's fresh because you're advised to use any product within six months. The range is not cheap by any means but there are absolutely no nasties in the Organic Pharmacy range at all.
Some of the organic skincare best sellers by the Organic Pharmacy are:
• Carrot Butter Cleanser
• Double Rose Rejuvenating Cream
• Antioxidant Face Firming Serum
• Cleopatra's Milk Bath
Again price would be an issue if you're on a budget. But the Organic Pharmacy's products are well worth stretching your budget for.
