Aloe Vera Leaf

This moisture-preserving humectant is a natural skin care staple for a reason. Not only does it prevent moisture loss, but it also helps improve the skin’s natural firmness with antioxidants like beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Aloe vera is often used in natural shampoo and conditioner formulas to balance and soothe a dry or irritated scalp.

This ingredient doesn’t interfere with cleansing, making it one of the more attractive hydrating humectants for nontoxic self-care products and formulas. Look for this in a hydrating shampoo, face cleansers, and other skincare for sensitive skin types.

Meadowfoam Seed Oil

This powerful antioxidant hydrates hair, protects it from UV damage, and provides great barrier function to hair and skin. It has excellent oxidative stability and helps lock in hydration and fragrance. It’s similar to jojoba oil, with a rich texture that prevents dryness in hair and skin. Look for this ingredient in a nourishing shampoo and conditioner made with natural and organic elements.

Green + White Tea Leaf Extract

Protect your skin with potent antioxidants found in green and white tea leaf extract. A natural astringent, tea polyphenols soothe and tone with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This ingredient has been shown to prevent damage from the oxidative stress that occurs from sun exposure. Look for this in a pore minimizer mask to deposit antioxidants where they’re needed while exfoliating and hydrating with other high-performance, nontoxic ingredients.


Saccharomyces ferment converts yeast into amino acids, organic compounds that have the power to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Combined with the black tea ferment that makes kombucha, this glow-inducing ingredient is a skincare powerhouse ingredient. Kombucha restores the skin’s pH while healing and detoxifying for long-term health and luminosity.

Choose a toner or mist with kombucha to balance skin before applying a nontoxic face oil. Best for those who struggle with acne or oily skin types.

Safflower Oil

For those who have acne-prone skin, safflower oil in a high-performance face oil can transform blemish-ridden skin. This emollient is loaded with benefits, from cleansing to hydration. Safflower oil removes dirt and excess oil before it replenishes moisture and elasticity to struggling skin. It’s rich in linoleic acid and essential vitamins that enhance the skin’s protective barrier.

For hydration that doesn’t clog pores and cleansing that doesn’t strip, a face oil with safflower oil is your new skincare go-to.

Edelweiss Leaf Extract

The edelweiss flower is able to withstand the conditions of the Alps, from high altitudes to harsh weather. It’s packed with antioxidants that help your skin battle against external forces like UV damage and environmental pollutants. Renew and regenerate skin that has visible signs of aging and skin damage with a repair serum that includes the powerful effects of the edelweiss flower.
