We’ve seen a lot of innovation in natural beauty products recently as they’ve hit the mass market in full force to meet with growing demands. We’re much more informed about what we put on our face and many of us just don’t want to apply a cocktail of chemicals to our complexion, regardless of how ‘effective’ they claim to be.
And there’s good reason to be cautious, anything you put on your skin absorbs into your bloodstream in 30 seconds, meaning it can be more damaging than things we ingest.
Here are our top 10 natural skincare products for the mature face.
