Natural Face Wash We Love
At the end of the day, nothing feels more relaxing than indulging in a luxurious skincare routine that leaves us feeling soft, clean, and moisturized. But instead of opting for face washes that are full of parabens, phthalates, or fragrances, we can go for natural and organic face washes that leave us with the same results, just without the harmful chemicals and irritants.
We’ve found 7 natural and organic face washes that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and ready for whatever comes your way. (And many of them are MADE SAFE certified, a nonprofit certification that ensures products are nontoxic and safe for all topical uses.) So go ahead, indulge—your skin will thank you.
