As skincare progressively becomes developed, we’re past the days of using products that irritate and harm the skin. It has us all actively searching for brands with all natural ingredients.
Fortunately, there are quite a few brands that do just that; a lot of them are not only cruelty-free, toxic free and environmentally friendly, but they are specifically formulated with plant-based ingredients to actually help improve all sorts of skin concerns.
To bring light to ‘clean beauty’, we did the research and listed some skincare brands along with two of their most popular products to help you get started on your quest for plump and glowy skin.
BioClarity is a relatively new skincare brand that focuses on wellness and plant-based science to create their products. With the belief that “healthy skin is skin in harmony”, BioClarity includes gentle plant extracts such as green tea and chamomile, as well as a unique form of chlorophyll called “Floralux” to deliver antioxidants and vitamins to the skin for a glowing, clear, and healthy looking face all year round.
Ever heard of the saying: “less is more”? Krave Beauty does just that. With so many skincare products out in the market today, founder Liah Yoo understands the struggles of ineffective ten-step skincare routines and overhyped products being sold at overwhelming price points. Krave Beauty is all about being transparent and their efforts in informing the public about skincare really helps them stand out. As of now, there are only three items in the Krave Beauty brand, but each is known to improve skin conditions with nourishing plant-based ingredients that your skin will soak up.
Throughout history, honey has been and continues to be the leading ingredient for plump, hydrated, and glowing skin. Enter Farmacy, a skincare brand with a dedicated team of local farmers and scientists working together to create all natural and all organic formulas aimed to help your skin. That means you’ll be getting the most of every one of their products without the worry of synthetic fragrances, animal testing, mineral oil, phthalate, and parabens haunting your mind and face.
When you think of Earth, what stands out to you? If you thought of its never-ending blue oceans, the sun, the ground, and the atmosphere, that is exactly what OSEA aims to base their products on. The name OSEA itself is an acronym that stands for “Ocean, Sun, Earth, and Atmosphere”, and the brand is wholeheartedly committed to producing cosmetics that are not only safe for us to use but also environmentally friendly. Just as the name says, the brand’s highlight includes the use of certified organic and bioavailable seaweed in their products, in addition to other vegan ingredients that are known to reduce blemishes without harming the skin.
We are what we eat...and put on our skin. Just like how we conscientiously strive to eat clean and organic foods to improve our body, Herbivore Botanicals believes that “every ingredient included in their products is there for a specific therapeutic reason”. This results in ethically-sourced and organic skincare with all active ingredients, ranging from “French pink clay to Brazilian gemstones” to bring tangible results to the skin.
