About Top 6 Organic Skin Care Products of 2016
When it comes to skincare, it is ideal to select products with great care. Our skin is extremely absorbent, and anything we put on our skin goes right into our bloodstream.
Conventional products have parabens, toxic chemicals, and other components that are not good for the body. Organic skin care products are the way to go.
There are so many brands to choose from, and more are hitting the market all the time. This article will highlight the Top 6 Organic Skin Care Products of 2016.
Vital Herbals Conscious Beauty Goods
Noelle is the brains behind Vital Herbals. Residing in Maine, she is a biodynamic gardener with a lot of heart and passion. Her Eczema + Psoriasis Healing Salve is utterly amazing. Noelle tries to wildcraft as many of her ingredients as possible.
In this salve, the plantain, red clover, and comfrey come from the fertile lands of her home. Using local herbs helps to retain most of their nutrients and minerals to better nourish the skin.
This salve is multi-purpose and effective. The plantain soothes pain and helps to repair torn tissue. Comfrey makes the skin smooth and supple.
The tea tree and lavender are anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial. I have used it on burns, cuts, and to treat my acne.
Vital Herbals believes that local plants are our best medicine. They grow with us to be utilized and appreciated by us and assist in our ultimate healing.
You can find the Eczema + Psoriasis Healing Salve on her Etsy account by searching for Vital Herbals. A 1 oz. bottle is $10.50 and a 4 oz. bottle is $21.40.
Brady is a nature-loving mother of 5 children. She believes in keeping future generations healthy and happy.
By using simple, pure, ingredients, she contributes to the well-being she wishes to see in the world. One of my favorite products she makes is a DETOX- Activated Charcoal handmade soap bar.
The activated charcoal has the ability to absorb into the pores and draw out dirt and oil. Used on a regular basis, it can help to reduce or eliminate bumps, acne, and blackheads. It also is a good detoxifier for the skin in general.
Charcoal soap will not dry out the skin and helps to diminish body odors. The organic coconut, hemp, sunflower, and olive oil will soften and feed the skin.
The soap can be unscented or have the addition of peppermint and tea tree oil. A single bar costs $5.50.
Brady created Dirt Tribe to be a place where you can find Eco-Friendly, Cruelty-Free, and Organic Products for your Home, Bath, and Body. You can find Brady’s products on her Etsy account by searching for Dirt Tribe.
Tenth House Apothecary
Lizz Forester makes her handcrafted items in small batches only. Made from organic and fair trade materials, she tries to ethically wildcraft as much as possible.
When the ingredients are not available in the wild, they are purchased from trusted sources. A product she makes that is a must have is Aphrodite’s Ashe- Cleansing Grains.
This hand ground face wash is a combination of flowers, oats, grains, and clay. Clay removes any dirt or toxins from pores without stripping the skin’s natural oils. Oats are naturally moisturizing.
The roses and yarrow flowers are cooling and drying. They also have astringent and antimicrobial properties and create an anti-inflammatory effect.
Patchouli also soothes inflammation and protects wounds from infection and reduces the chances of scarring. Apply to the skin with equal parts of the product with a choice of water, apple cider vinegar, honey, or milk.
One container of Aphrodite’s Ashe costs $15. Tenth House Apothecary can be found on Etsy. Lizz’s products are created thoughtfully to strengthen the mind, body, and soul.
Erin Helton is a self-proclaimed one woman show and is based out of Florida. She is dedicated to making health and beauty products without harsh chemicals or additives. One product I cannot do without is the Awakened Eye Cream that she crafts.
It is made with oil infused with calendula, organic coffee, and rose hips. They are blended with shea butter which is an excellent moisturizer.
Calendula is a natural moisturizer and helps relieve inflammation. Rosehips smooth wrinkles, hydrate the skin, and evens skin tone.
The Awakened Eye Cream can be used in the morning to reduce bags, at night before bed, or both. One container costs $16.
Wanderers Apothecary can be found on Etsy. All of Erin’s products are natural and vegan-friendly.

Her products will never contain parabens, petroleum, sodium lauryl sulfate, unnatural preservatives, or fillers. No animals are ever tested on. Ash makes an incredible Chaga and Sassafras Body Cream.
The Aloe Vera gel has a cooling property, great for healing blemishes or cuts. The cacao butter is extremely moisturizing and nourishes the skin. Chaga mushrooms are potent in their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
Sassafras can help remove blemishes or discoloration of the skin. Both the Sassafras and Chaga are wildcrafted.

Lauren is passionate about making wild herb tonics and nourishing skin care products that are inspired by the plants that grow around her in Southern Vermont. Toners are an important part of face care, and I love her product Balance-Herb-infused Facial Toner.
This toner both acts as an astringent and nourishes the skin. It is ideal for removing excess dirt, oil, or makeup without drying out the skin. The green tea helps to flush toxins from the skin and improves the skin’s elasticity.
It can also help reduce puffy eyes and dark circles. The marshmallow root moisturized and soothes the skin.
Lauren’s toner costs $27 for an 8 oz. bottle. You can find it and all her other products on her website Lalaearth.com. All the herbs are harvested fresh when they are at their peak.
They are processed in a way that preserves their vitality and nutritional qualities. She believes that each season, each plant, and each moment is a gift.
