Is Natural Skincare Really Better?

We talked alot about clean beauty, but what about natural skincare? We at SkinStore take a mini-dive into what’s what in our clean beauty category and skincare brands.

Clean vs. Natural in Skincare

According to the Washington Post, there’s consensus in the industry that clean refers to products that favor natural ingredients yet often incorporate synthetics that have been deemed safe for people and the planet.

In other words, clean does not necessarily mean chemical-free, which is what sets it apart from brands that claim to be “natural.”

In short, this means that natural can be clean, but clean is not always natural; it’s just free of certain hot-button, man-made ingredients — such as parabens and formaldehyde-releasing agents.

Here are our favorite brands that feature organic and naturally derived ingredients in our clean beauty category!

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is a multi-award-winning, results-driven probiotic skincare brand fusing scientifically proven probiotic ingredients with powerful botanicals. Aurelia’s pioneering probiotics act by reducing cellular damage and promoting the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid for plump, dewy skin that glows.

Juice Beauty

Juice Beauty harvests the power of nature. Stem Cellular products contain fruit stem cells that help repair and restore aging or sun-damaged skin where potent Green Apple Skin Peel exfoliates and re-textures the complexion and Alpha and beta hydroxy acids strip away dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, brighter complexion.
