7 Natural Face Washes That Actually Work


Sensitive skin? Pregnant? Just want to be one with nature? If you can check any of these boxes, natural face wash is definitely for you. “Ideal for those who are struggling to find the right skincare products that are free from chemicals, preservatives, and fragrances, natural face wash can be a great alternative,” explains New York City-based dermatologist Shereene Idriss.

Idriss also adds that natural face washes tend to have simple formulas which makes them more appealing to pregnant women who are worried about the chemicals they’re putting in and on their bodies. Some natural face washes with fewer ingredients may also be ideal for those who tend to flare up from more complex products. So, what should you look for? “Pink clay is the gentlest of all clays that does not strip your skin of its natural oils, while remaining extremely effective at replenishing your skin with the nourishment it needs,” says Idriss.

Idriss also plays favorites with the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser. “It buffs and polishes your skin with apricot seed powder, removes buildup with pink clay and pomegranate enzymes, and refines pore appearance with white willow bark—a natural salicylic acid,” explains Idriss.
