Before diving in, it is important to note what companies mean when they advertise their products as “natural.” The simplest answer is, there is no simple answer. The definition of the term “natural” varies from site to site and can mean different things for different products. The most common definitions deal with organic ingredients or how the products are free from certain harsh chemicals, but that is not universal or all-inclusive.
This is why, when I compiled my list, I have gone so far as to specify in what ways each brand or company markets its products as natural. As well, in my search for the most popular beauty sites for natural skincare, I have noted the ones that showed up at least twice during my hunt.
Credo Beauty has its clean standard that each of its products must live up to. On their site, they boast a line free of any “dirty” ingredients, a list that is quite substantial and is no small feat to avoid.

They are EWG Verified, free of synthetic fragrances, and certified by Leaping Bunny (cruelty-free). They consult with experts on their products which are also dermatologist tested.
