Ursa Major is a certified B corp making natural and organic skincare essentials with nature’s very best ingredients.

2. True Botanicals
Best For | Hydrating facial oil in a glass bottle
Featured Ingredients | Chia, kiwi, passionfruit & papaya seed oils, algae extract
Our Pick | Pure Radiance Oil ($110)
The Pure Radiance Oil from True Botanicals is one of our very favorites for a luxurious skincare upgrade. The formula targets fine lines and wrinkles and includes vegan and organic ingredients directly from nature, like rosemary, kiwi seeds, and papaya. Our editors agree that it feels healing and moisturizing on our skin and smells like your favorite expensive fragrance. That said, a little goes a long way with this one, and we don’t recommend using it before bed (unless you’re okay with some getting on your pillowcase!). Rather, we like to use this oil in the morning paired with a Gua Sha or facial cupping for a daily glow. True Botanicals is MADE Safe certified.

It smells like lavender and clary sage and is made with plant-derived ingredients like seaweed and shea butter. The vegan moisturizer is also in antioxidants and protects the skin from environmental pollutants. We love the pump bottle for application and the lightweight, silky finish. OSEA is Climate Neutral Certified and delivers its skincare in recyclable packaging.
