Reader Question: Organic Cleansers That Really Work


You guys KNOW how much I love answering your questions, and you always come up with a good one. Here’s one of the most recent ones:

What is a true all natural face wash – no synthetic chemicals – that will actually clean my face while not making acne and wrinkles worse, maybe actually helping those issues? – Brooke S., Canton, GA.

Interesting question, because a lot of products mention botanicals and organic, but only a few can really claim that they are absolutely certified 100% organic.

In order to accomplish all your issues (cleansing, wrinkle-reduction and acne-prevention) in addition to being USDA Certified Organic, you’ll need to use a cleanser AND a serum.

I’d recommend Juice Beauty, which is certified organic and have products that will deliver on their promises with continued, regular use. Check out their Green Apple Cleansing Gel, which has some seriously awesome antioxidants (organic lemon, apple and sugar cane) for a gentle cleansing with brightening properties.

As mentioned, you’ll need to start using a serum that includes a great combination of peptides and other wrinkle-busting benefits. Juice Beauty also has the Green Apply Age Defy Serum, which has a pretty powerful cocktail of DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, fat-soluble and CoQ10 in addition to peptides. That should improve the appearance of your lines over time with – again – regular use double with an almost-religious fervor to get rid of them.

If you like their products, invest in a few more. I think you’ll love them.

At a slightly higher price point, in my book no other botanical and organic company does this better than Tata Harper Skincare. I can personally attest to the power of these products and I’ve been using them for years. They’re also certified organic and the botanical formulas are mindblowing. Check out their Regenerating Cleanser (a personal favorite) which has bergamot and grapefruit (which alleviates congestion, the clogging pores thing) along with other ingredients like Willow Bark which helps cellular turnover.

If you want to try one of her serums, I can recommend Tata’s Rejuvenating Serum quite highly. It’s a little spendy, but the results will spare you more money in treatments that don’t work. Plus, when your skin is even, you use less makeup and spend less money correcting issues later. The product contains 29 active ingredients that are combined specifically to regenerate skin at the cellular level. Beauty editors swear by this product.

Hope this helped!
