Go Manic for Organic

These days, the term ‘organic’ is thrown around so liberally that it can be hard to work out which brands to place your faith in – which is all the more reason why anyone who’s recently converted to the Clean Beauty movement should acquaint themselves with the following skin treats as soon as they can. 

1. To soothe the skin (and your senses)

Neal’s Yard Remedies is a brand with impressive credentials: their high quality plant-based ingredients are certified organic by the Soil Association and the USDA, and what’s more, they’re ethically sourced and never tested on animals.

Try: Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Immortelle Organic Essential Oil, RM297

A gentle, luxurious introduction to organic beauty comes in the form of the Immortelle Organic Essential Oil, which cools, soothes, and regenerates skin whenever it’s blended with body lotion, massage oil or shower gel. You can even make the most of its spicy, honey-like aroma by diffusing it in your bedroom as a way of relieving nervous exhaustion and depression – perfect to unwind after a long, stressful day.

2. To nourish and firm the skin

If you can’t get enough of organic oils, this beauty treat combats signs of ageing through fair trade-certified argan oil from Morocco, which is enriched with amino acid to firm facial contours and nourish the skin’s barrier function. Not only is it feather-light to wear and non-greasy, but 100 percent of its ingredients are naturally derived – so you can be sure of exactly what you’re applying to your face.

Try: Melvita’s Argan+ Dry Touch Face Oil, RM196

3. For firmer, suppler skin

This rich cream is ideal for anyone searching for a smoothing anti-ageing solution that’s still kind to the skin. Its naturally effective formula harnesses a combination of seven plant oils – borage, evening primrose, camelina, echium, sea buckthorn, apricot and rose hip – plus its star ingredient, the essential oil of the helichrysum or immortelle flower, sourced from the fragrant scrubland of Corsica. With organic skincare, it’s safe to say that wilder is always better.
