When I was in my 20s, I didn’t even think about face moisturizer. Sure, I owned one, but I wasn’t super vigilant about applying it every day. Once I got into my 30s, I realized how important it is to help your skin stay young! I wish I would have been better about it when I was younger, but at least I’m applying it now. If you have already been applying a face moisturizer for many years, great job! But are you applying a natural face moisturizer that is safe to use?

So many lotions and moisturizers can contain harmful ingredients that can mess with your body and can potentially cause allergies, immunotoxicity, developmental and reproductive toxicities, cancer, and even more health issues. What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. Your skin is your largest organ. Make sure you take care of it and only use safe, clean, natural, and non-toxic products.

I’ve included some natural face moisturizers below that are made of oils and/or butters. These natural ingredients contain vitamins and antioxidants that provide you with everything you need without using synthetic ingredients. They have great anti-aging effects, are good at reducing acne and inflammation, can be beneficial for eczema, and in addition, they provide great hydration, shrink pores, and even have antimicrobial, and antifungal effects.

Keep in mind that some oils/butters may not work for everyone. Everyone’s skin is different and while they help some people get rid of acne, it may cause acne for someone else. Below I’ve included a comedogenic scale to show you how likely it is for a specific ingredient to clog pores. The scale is as follows:

  • 0 – won’t clog pores at all
  • 1 – very low likelihood they will clog pores
  • 2 – moderately low likelihood
  • 3 – moderate likelihood
  • 4 – fairly high likelihood
  • 5 – high likelihood of clogging pores

For the recommended oil/butter products below, I’ve included their comedogenic rating so you can decide if the product is for you. You’ll notice that in addition to these oils and butters, I’ve included some additional face moisturizers towards the bottom of the article (numbers 6-8) that are not as natural or as clean as the oil and butter products, but they are still a good choice if you decide they will work better for you. All of the products below can be used in the morning and at night. Hopefully, you find a natural face moisturizer that works well with your skin!

1. Bubble and Bee Rosehip and Vitamin E Certified Organic Face Cream

The best natural and clean night cream

Ingredients: Organic shea butter, organic rosehip seed oil, vitamin E

Comedogenic rating: 0-2 (see the rating scale above for reference)

This is the night cream that I use and I love it. I think it’s the best night cream. Once I started using this, my skin felt extra soft, it wasn’t as dry, and it looked more vibrant. I’ve been using it for several years now and plan to keep using it. Also, it has never made me break out. I decided to use this only at night since it does leave my skin a little shiny. If you want to use it in the morning too, you can. I did for a while and it worked fine with a little powder on top.

I picked this cream in the first place because I wanted something with rosehip oil. I once read that Kate Middleton uses rosehip oil so that was a good enough reason for me, but if you need more of a reason, recent studies have proven rosehip oil to reduce and prevent wrinkles, scarring, age spots, and to help skin retain a healthy glow.

What are the benefits of shea butter? Shea butter is anti-inflammatory, it helps your skin retain moisture, helps damaged skin, helps acne, supports healthy collagen function, and contains antioxidants to help with aging skin. This company uses only the purest shea butter that has not been chemically refined or bleached. These are all great benefits and the best part is, it’s all natural!

I should also add that this is a great little company. I trust every product that they have. They also make their products in-house and make them fresh in small batches.

2. Badger Balm – Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil – Certified Organic

Badger Balm - Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil - Certified Organic,1 oz.

Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Baobab Oil, Organic Pomegranate Oil, Organic Lavender Oil, Organic Rosehip Extract, Organic Seabuckthorn Extract, Organic Rose Oil, Organic Roman Chamomile Oil & Organic Calendula Extract.

Comedogenic ratings: All of these oils are rated 0-2 on the comedogenic scale (see the rating scale above for reference)

This is a very natural way to moisturize your face. It’s so clean and safe. I started using this in the morning after I wash my face and it works great! This face oil is rich in antioxidants, certified organic, and uses a blend of plant oils formulated to restore and protect delicate or dry skin. The benefits of using oils on your skin are endless. Some benefits include anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties, great hydration, antioxidants to help with aging skin, and more. This clean face moisturizer is free of artificial ingredients, fragrances, dyes, parabens, petroleum, GMOs, synthetic chemicals, and harsh ingredients. In addition, it’s gluten-free and cruelty-free.

3. Sky Organics Mango Butter for Body & Face, 100% Raw and Unrefined

Sky Organics Mango Butter for Body & Face, 100% Raw and Unrefined to Hydrate, Balance & Even Tone 16 Oz.

Ingredients: Mangifera indica (Mango butter)

Comedogenic rating: 2 (see the rating scale above for reference)

This super clean face moisturizer and night cream is made with only 100% pure, raw, and unrefined mango butter. By being raw and unrefined, it is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins which can help keep your skin soft, smooth, and healthy-looking. Because this is not a whipped butter, it does have a solid balm texture.

This butter is lightweight and non-greasy. It is great for sensitive skin, psoriasis, and eczema due to its anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe skin. In addition, mango butter contains vitamin A, an antioxidant that stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process and helps protect the skin’s elasticity. It is vegan and cruelty-free, and you can also use this butter on your face, hands, or body. So even if you give it a try and you don’t end up liking it on your face, simply use it on the rest of your body.

4. 100% Grass Fed Beef Tallow for Skin Care – Face + Body – Whipped Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

Amallow 100% Grass Fed Beef Tallow for Skin Care - Face + Body - Whipped Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin - 100% Natural Lotion, 4 FL. oz. (Unscented)

Ingredients: 100% Grassfed Tallow, Organic Sweet Almond Oil

Comedogenic Rating: 2 (see the rating scale above for reference)

Have you heard of tallow? It’s pretty popular right now in my clean living and non-toxic groups. What is tallow? Tallow is a type of fat called suet fat from cows and sheep. It is wonderful for skin care because it contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant which is great for your skin. Grassfed tallow (like this one) contains more CLA. In addition, tallow is antimicrobial and antifungal, non-greasy, and is healing for eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and itchy skin. This tallow is made with almond oil which contains vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants. This company says that they use almond oil (vs olive oil) to prevent clogging pores. This clean face moisturizer helps to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars. Shop now!

5. Ancient Greek Remedy Organic Anti-Aging Face and Body Butter Cream for Dry Skin

Comedogenic Rating: All of these oils are either rated a 1 or 2 (see the rating scale above for reference)

This non-toxic face moisturizer is hydrating and helps smooth & hydrate dry skin, tighten loose skin, shrink pores, clear up acne, prevent breakouts, reduce wrinkles, and minimize the appearance of acne scars. It’s made with many natural oils that are rich in vitamins and have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifungal effects. This natural face moisturizer is vegan, non-GMO, and free from water, preservatives, parabens, gluten, fillers, artificial scents, and chemicals. You can even use it on your hair and hands to help add moisture.

I decided to add a few other moisturizers and night creams below that aren’t as natural as the ones listed above, but I browsed through their ingredients and overall they looked pretty good. They use some synthetic ingredients, however, I didn’t find anything harmful to our health. See below.

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    ideas or tips? Thanks!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you like the site. Oh yes, sitting down and concentrating is tough especially with kids running around, but I try to write when I can be in a quiet room all by myself. It takes me awhile as well, but I just try to take my time. Thanks for checking out the site and good luck to you!
