Organic skincare is becoming more widely available in the beauty market. As beauty fans discover the power of natural active ingredients, brands are taking note, and this has paved the way for some incredible new product launches. To help you find the best organic and natural ingredients to try in your routine, we've created a guide that tells you everything you need to know.


In the skincare world, Thyme is known for its healing and radiance-boosting properties. This makes the ingredient particularly effective on oily and combination skin. We love the Garnier Organic Thyme Perfecting Toner, as the Thyme is certified organic, ethically sourced, and is a key ingredient in this incredible vegan formula. In addition, the bottle is made from 100% recycled plastic and is recyclable. For best results, apply this clarifying toner to your complexion after cleansing, and enjoy purifying mattifying benefits.


Lemongrass is packed with vitamins A and C, meaning it's an ideal skincare ingredient if you're looking to promote glow, clarify, and keep your oil levels in check. The Garnier Organic Lemongrass Gel Wash gently lifts away daily impurities without disrupting the skin's natural balance. This cleanser's natural fragrance is uplifting, energising, and can be used in conjunction with the Garnier Organic Lemongrass Moisturiser.

As Lemongrass has nourishing properties, it is also a key ingredient in many bodycare products such as the Dr Hauschka Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk.

Argan Oil

Using organic argan oil in your beauty routine is one of the best ways to nourish your skin. It can be applied in pure form, or it is also often blended with complementary ingredients. The Neal's Yard Organic Argan Oil can be applied directly onto your skin, hair and nails to create a warming, comforting, spa-like experience. You only need a few drops per application, and you'll begin to see silky soft results as it sinks in and gets to work.


Organic cornflower has a plethora of skincare benefits, from softening to soothing the skin. The Sanoflore Aciana Botanica Divine Bare Skin Gentle Cleansing Milk is formulated with Organic cornflower extract and Sunflower Seed Oil to create a soap-free daily cleanser suitable for all skin types. Lifting away makeup, even stubborn eye makeup, the face feels instantly clean and replenished with moisture. The no-rinse formula makes it an easy step to add into your evening skincare routine.


If you enjoy the scent of banana, you'll adore the Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Hair Food Banana Shampoo. Part of a banana fragranced hair care range, this Shampoo is your ultimate hair saviour and is a vegan, 98% natural blend. As it says in the name, the formula is nourishing, feeding your hair with essential nutrients and keeping it boosted with shine. Hair feels noticeably healthier and beautifully clean. Banana is a great natural ingredient to use in your haircare routine as it is rich in Vitamin E and has a divine sweet scent.
