Are you on the hunt for some of the best Natural Skin Care that is cruelty-free? I’ll be honest; I’m pretty skeptical about the use of “Natural” in skin care and cosmetics so some homework is needed before I’ll go along with it. Too often it is just a marketing pitch as the government labeling rules are lax. Labeling becomes a bit of a problem when my friends would ask me if something is “natural” and I’d have to tell them 99% of the time the word means NOTHING. I know there is something for everyone out there in my cruelty-free world, so I was determined to find these ladies some great skin care that is, in fact, all “natural” ingredients. My definition of “natural” is that it’s derived from nature not in a lab. It’s plant-based, although it may have gone through some transformation in the lab to make the ingredients usable. Generally speaking, if I can identify all of the plant-based ingredients and it does not contain toxic or synthetic ingredients, I will classify it as natural skin care. If it has amazing reviews and lots of them, I’ll consider it to be great natural skincare and I’m happy to send my “natural” friends in that direction. Read on for what I recommend they try. If you have any experience with these lines, I’d love to hear from you.
As with all products I recommend you check ingredients listed for allergies.
This line is to me, a bit of a hybrid between dermatologist brands and the pure naturals. They call it Nutraceuticals.
What are nutraceuticals? Some of the most effective anti-aging ingredients in nature are from intensely pigmented fruits and vegetables. Lutein from marigolds, beta carotene from carrots, astaxanthin from sea algae and lycopene from tomatoes. These, along with vitamin C, super vitamin E with both tocopherols and tocotrienols plus CoQ10, are the top seven nutrients known to benefit the skin. They are in every Ecco Bella Doctor-Approved Skin Care with VitaminCells product.
All of these products have 5 * reviews. They do have sales so come back often and see what they’ve got. Visit their site and have a look at these fantastic products. Shop Ecco Bella
See all Ecco Bella products as everything is sold individually as well if you don’t want the entire regimen.
I quite like this company because I feel like they are all in, not only being cruelty-free, vegan and non-toxic, they are also using Organic ingredients. Their packaging plastics are BPA and Phthalate free, and all other packaging uses recycled materials. They also only use non-toxic soy-based inks.
I love this graphic on how 100% Pure extracts ingredients from the source plants. Sorry, I’m a science geek.
Water is commonly used as the first (majority) ingredient in most skin, hair, and body products. Instead of water, 100% PURE uses beneficial organic floral hydrosols, organic aloe juice, organic fermented rice water (sake) and organic teas. It’s also common to use thickeners to expand/add volume to economize formulas, but 100% PURE? formulas are never diluted with cheap fillers. Every ingredient in each 100% PURE? formula is there for a benefit. No water, no fillers and no thickeners EVER!
