Natural Face Care Products - What To Look For When Buying

Natural Face Care Products - What To Look For When Buying

There are plenty of natural face care products on the market these days. Because of the wide range of options available, it’s hard to know what to look for in those products. Are they all made the same? Are some better than others? Are all of them good for all skin types? These are the types of questions we hope to answer for you so that you can make the best decision for your new natural face care skin routine. 

What are natural face care products?

When you’re looking for natural products specifically for use on your face, it’s important to understand what constitutes a “natural” product. Because there are some products and brands that slap a “natural” label on their product and call it a day, the best thing to do is to take a look at the ingredients used to create the product. 

In general, “natural”, when it comes to skincare, means a product that uses natural, non-synthetic ingredients to make the product. As a rule of thumb, natural products should also be free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, dyes, phthalates and sulphates. Many of these types of products will utilise ingredients that are naturally sourced or botanical ingredients.

Why are more people turning to natural skincare products?

In more recent times, people have become more aware of what is being used on their bodies when looking after their skin. More people are aware of the dangers and complications associated with certain synthetic ingredients and some are also aware that those particular ingredients are not beneficial to their skin type. More people are getting to understand the positive impact and benefits of using natural skin care products each day.

If you suffer from any kind of skin condition, chances are that you have searched online or asked friends about the types of products available that will be better for your skin. 

Some natural and organic skincare brands also work on being kinder to the environment and animals. Some will use eco-friendly packaging and ensure their products aren’t tested on animals. This is another reason why you may be looking for a product to suit your skin and have a smaller impact on the planet. 

Avoid fragrances

Fragrances used in skincare and make-up products can sometimes cause allergic reactions and asthma problems for some people. When you are looking for a natural product for your face, look for a product that contains no artificial fragrances, but rather relies on natural ingredients to provide a scent (if any). You may have a sensitivity to scents, especially for face care, so using a natural product will help with this sensitivity.

Some products on the market utilise aromatherapy blends to provide a mild scent. But these ingredients will often have skincare benefits such as reducing irritation, improving focus or even helping you to relax. This makes these types of products an added win when looking for skincare.

Look at the brands’ other values

Although a business may sell organic skincare, take a look over their socials or their website to see how they stack up when it comes to other issues. If your only concern is that you want a product that is naturally derived, then this may not matter to you too much. But, if you want to know whether a business is making natural products for the sake of gaining some coin for selling “natural products” or whether they care about issues, the environment, animal cruelty or anything else, take a look at their information. 

You may find that some businesses offer eco-friendly packaging to help reduce waste and their carbon footprint. Or, some may even donate a portion of their sales to worthwhile causes. As an example, Love Aly’s gives 10% of its revenue to educational projects for teenagers and young adults. Their packaging is also made of opaque glass and is supplied in a reusable and recyclable box with a vegan wax seal. After you have used up your product, you can return the bottle and the packaging to Love Aly’s and receive 15% off your next order. Win-win!


At the end of the day, one thing to consider is that your skin is the largest organ in your body. Therefore, it just makes sense to look after it as much as possible. Doing your research and finding out what ingredients are used in your skincare for your face can help to improve the overall look and feel of your skin. But, you can also find a business that helps other great causes and respects the environment and/or animals in the process.
