Recently, there’s been great concern about the toxicity of beauty products. Many well-known skin and beauty brands use extremely toxic ingredients such as parabens (that have shown up in the breast tissue of those suffering from breast cancer), nanoparticals, sulfates, chemical sunscreens, Phthalates, Triclosan and other questionable ingredients that can wreak havoc on our physiology.
We’ve only began exploring the health risks associated with these chemicals and preservatives, and the question remains — why not use all-natural? Thankfully, these pure skincare brands are making clean beauty accessible to all. They use nature’s brilliant science to create products that are not only safe to use, but also work like magic for your body, skin and hair.
Here are 25 of the best all-natural skincare brands of 2015:
