Not so long ago, the mention of the natural skincare would invariably led to thoughts of homemade concoctions and ineffective herbal remedies. However, the clean skincare movement is growing and evolving rapidly, and some of the best respected brands are now made with only natural ingredients. Using scientific advances but avoiding any chemicals or toxins, natural skincare brands are now as effective as their manmade counterparts. Plus this new wave of face friendly brands are often vegan and sustainable. Good for our skin and the planet? Consider us ready to start Zilching a new skincare regime stat!

1. Tata Harper

Named after their founder, Tata Harper is a pioneer in skincare that’s not only 100% natural, but equally as luxurious. Despite being free from any chemicals, toxins or even artificial fragrances the brand’s products are known for their anti ageing properties. Tata Harper is also environmentally conscious, using glass for most of their packaging or bio-plastic made from sugarcane. With fans like Gwyneth Paltrow, this luxe line won’t disappoint.

2. Farmacy

Pioneering the ‘farm-to’face’ approach to skincare, Farmacy partners directly with local, organic farms to source unique ingredients that create potent, but clean formulations. Throughout their range you’ll’ find their hero ingredient, Echinacea GreenEnvy Complex, formulated to protect and firm your skin.

3. Weleda

For almost 100 years (yes, you read that right) this brand has been at the forefront of the natural skincare movement. Believing that each plant has its own healing properties that can be harnessed, Weleda combines various different flora and fauna to create their signature products. And unlike many other clean skincare brands, this well established name doesn’t come with a high price tag, with products starting below the £10 mark.

Pomegranate Firming Eye Cream, £28.95

4. Votary

The story behind Votary is the definition of a clean skincare brand – Make-up artist Arabella Preston started the skincare line at her kitchen table, by blending pure plant oils,. Still made in small batches to this day Votary is known for creating healthy, dewy complexions. With results like that, Votary will leave you wondering why you ever felt the need for anything chemical in your skincare regime.

5. Pai Skincare

Pai Skincare is proudly made in London with all organic ingredients; promoting their products as natural, ethical and sustainable this is a go-to skincare line for those with sensitive skin.
