Top 5 ‘Up and Coming’ Organic Skin Care Brands To Watch

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. The recent wave of health conscious thinking has made people more wary about what they put on this organ and a quick look at the ingredients’ list of most skincare products reads like something out of a chemistry textbook.

People don’t want to poison themselves any more for the sake of looking good therefore they are switching to products which contain natural and organic ingredients. Entrepreneurs listened to the people’s concerns and are now producing lines of organic skin care products which make skin look and feel good.
Producing a line of organic skin care products is a not as simple as slapping a ‘certified organic’ sticker on the bottle.

Modern day consumers are smart about what they buy therefore they are insisting that the brands that they use pay special attention to environmental standards, transparency in sourcing and efficacy. Here is list of the top 5 organic skin care brands which are leading the way in producing high-quality and organic skin care products.

Crop Natural
Crop Natural is a brand that made its first appearance at Coles in Australia. It first entered the market at a time when many consumers believed that all the news about the harmful effects of chemicals in standard products was just scaremongering to make consumers buy pricier products. Fast forward a few years and it looks like Crop Natural wasn’t just scaremongering- they were just years ahead of everyone else. Their well-formulated products and marketing campaign based on promoting the good rather than demonizing the bad has made Crop Natural one of the preferred cosmetic lines for the health conscious skin-care shopper.
The best thing about this range of products is that they are budget-friendly. Their products are also very gentle on the skin with a list of ingredients that is free from parabens, sulfates and animal by-products. The drawback to using this line of products is that most of them contain essential oils which can irritate sensitive skin.


Biossance products are loved because they are known to keep your skin from getting irritated. The company earned this reputation by blacklisting more than 2,000 chemical ingredients that are not regulated by the FDA. Very few products are known to be as effective at soothing irritated skin as Biossance products.

The primary ingredient in all of Biossance’s products is Squalane. It is a very effective antioxidant and emollient which is derived from plants. Many other skin care products use squalane as well but most of those cosmetic lines use squalane that is sourced from shark livers while Biossance sources its squalane 100% from organically grown plant sources. They use sugarcane to produce the molecule and it is just as effective at hydrating your skin as the squalane that is taken from other sources.

Biossance’s most popular products include Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil for evening out skin tone, and Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel to brighten up the skin under your eyes.

No B.S.

No B.S. is a brand that likes to keep things simple. The ingredients in these skincare products are made from powerful naturally-occurring compounds that are proven to work well on a woman’s skin without using parabens, sulfates, phthalates or synthetic fragrances. No B.S.’s product packaging is just as simple with clean and understated branding.

The company believes that plant-based ingredients are able to bring the best out of a woman’s skin. They don’t believe that people should be using $500 serums to look good when tea tree oil, coconut oil, aloe vera and pomegranate can do a better job. All of their products are made in the U.S with no animal testing and they retail at relatively affordable prices.

No B.S products such as Retinol Night Cream are available on Amazon for $50. You’re unlikely to find their products in high-end cosmetic stores however they have been gaining popularity lately and that may be the push that the company needs to get more recognition in the cosmetic world. The company is unlikely to let the recent surge in popularity take it away from the values that make No B.S. products great.

Verso Skincare

The name ‘Verso’ is the latin word for reverse. This company has perfected a formula that is eight times more powerful than standard Vitamin A (Retinol) formulas without being nearly as aggressive as its competitors.

Retinol is used to slow the signs of ageing. It does this by stimulating the body to produce its own hyaluronic acid and collagen to prevent wrinkles and stop skin for sagging. Retinol’s antioxidant effects are also good for treating acne. The only issue with using Retinol as an ingredient is that it irritates skin.

Verso’s Retinol formula is superior because it is much less aggressive on unstable skin. Traditional Retinol formulations typically have about 0.5% Retinol but Verso’s formula contains a tenth of that amount and is still 8 times more effective and with less UV sensitivity. The company was formed in 2013 in Stockholm and recently made an appearance in the American markets.

Youth to the People

Youth to the People refers to its products as superfood skincare. They produce skincare products that are called ‘smoothies for your face’ which are full of antioxidants that bring the best out of your skin. The ingredients list includes things such as spinach and kale.

The ‘food for you face’ reasoning behind this brand’s products is backed by solid science. Superfoods such as leafy greens are packed with all of the minerals and nutrients that your body uses to make your skin glow by reducing inflammation and promoting your body’s natural hydration processes. Youth to the People products come in small jars that retail at $30-50 which is a bit pricey when you consider how small the jars are. Popular products from this line include Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil and Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer.

Are Organic Skincare Products Worth Using?

The answer is a definite ‘Yes’. Cancer rates are on the rise and studies are showing that they are directly related to a person’s lifestyle choices. Slathering a chemical cocktail on your face everyday is not wise but thanks to these organic skincare products, you no longer have to risk your well-being in order to look good. Organic skincare products cost more but they deliver a higher concentration of plant-based active ingredients which justify the higher prices.
