6 completely organic cosmetics brands – chemicals and cruelty free


I have switched to all natural and organic cosmetics brands some time ago and I have seen nothing but positive changes on my skin and hair since then. I could never imagine going back to those synthetic products full of harsh chemicals, all kinds of parabens, phthalates, xy thingies and bunch of other stuff I can’t even pronounce. Not to mention that many brands you buy on a regular basis still do animal testing! So I decided to list a few brands that I use and love, so if you are searching for a new favorite organic cosmetics brand you might find it in my list. So, here goes my favorite organic cosmetics brands.

List of organic cosmetics brands:

Pure beauty that honors the body and the world we live in.

Avalon Organics uses all natural and organic ingredients.

  • Without synthetic fragrances, phthalates, harsh sulfates or parabens
  • Avalon Organics doesn’t use parabens and other harsh and potentially toxic preservatives but since cosmetic products have to be preserved somehow, they use ingredients such as sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and benzyl alcohol, that are approved for use in personal care products
  • Surfactants that do the actual cleaning in products (shampoos, soaps…) are necessary but they don’t use strong and harsh chemicals such as sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates because they are associated with skin irritation
  • Petroleum-based ingredients are also not being used because they are considered potentially toxic
  • No animal testing.
