Our Pick Of The Best Natural Products To Detox Your Beauty Cabinet

If you've been flirting with the idea of switching to an all-natural beauty regime we don't blame you. You practically need a chemistry degree to decipher the long list of ingredients that trail most products' labels. The good news is, you don't need to slather unpronounceable ingredients on your face to look good. Natural beauty has you covered, with many brands specialising in skin-loving products that simultaneously enhance your natural beauty while nourishing your skin.

This fair trade, vegan balm is like nothing your lips have kissed before. Their flawless blend is made from a carefully considered selection of raw and organic ingredients that are hand poured to create a balm so perfect, it's like a nourishing dessert for your lips

Natural beauty products have come a long way since their ho-hum hippie days. They're no longer the questionable products relegated to dodgy-looking apothecary stores. Instead, they're proudly claiming their place on beauty cabinet shelves. It's safe to say natural beauty is having its day in the sun, and we couldn't be more impressed with the quality brands taking over the world of beauty.

So, which natural beauty products deserve your wandering eye? Here's a look at our pick of the best of the bunch to get you on your way to a beauty cabinet that even a 1970's flower child would be proud of.

Frank Body

Cheekily sassy and refreshingly candid, Frank Body are the cool kid in the natural-beauty schoolyard. And their cult following (including over 600k Instagram followers!) can attest to their coolness, as well as their credibility. Frank Body are all about coffee, the all-star ingredient that's injected into their modest range of body, face, and lip products "because every babe needs something to undo the fact she hasn’t slept in ten years.” Their coffee scrubs are next level, boasting cellulite busting, stretchmark fading, skin-glowing abilities that are as sincere as the ingredients. Try the Cacao Coffee Scrub for a shower full of chocolatey goodness that's perfect for stubbornly dry skin.

Vliss Organics

The weird and wonderful ingredient that sets Vliss apart is fruit rind. Mangosteen rind to be exact. Not what you expected? Me neither. Turns out this unassuming, odd-looking purple fruit hailing from South East Asia is packed with skin-nourishing compounds that can help combat a range of skincare problems, like free radicals and sun damage. And whatever this wonder-fruit can't provide is made up for by other skin-loving ingredients, like beautiful botanicals, rich vitamins, and nourishing oils. Vliss Organics is a newbie on the block, yet rave reviews and an already-devoted following has us predicting big things for this nature-loving brand.  

INIKA Organic

Deservedly popular in the realm of natural beauty, INIKA Organic are the real deal. With a host of awards and rave reviews behind them, they've proven that natural beauty does NOT mean compromising on quality or style. Just some of the hero ingredients that grace their 100% vegan, certified organic, Australian-owned products' labels include Macadamia Nut Oil, Aloe Vera, Calendula, Shea Butter, and Kakadu Plum (aka naturally nutritious ingredients that love your skin).

Alya Skin, Australian Pink Clay Mask

The wildly popular, impressively diligent Australian Pink Clay Mask from Alya Skin is a little pot of pink perfection. Using only natural, Australian sourced ingredients, this vegan and cruelty-free purifying mask will leave you with glowing skin and an addiction that'll have you 'masking-up' religiously. Kaolin clay, the hard-working, all-natural ingredient that sets this mask apart is an expert in gently removing and remedying impurities, and replacing them with nutrients for brighter, healthier looking skin.

Zuii Organic

Their slogan 'Wear Flowers on Your Face' is as sweet as it is accurate. Zuii Organic specialise in – you guessed it – natural cosmetics made from flowers. Their Certified Organic products, lovingly crafted from a unique blend of flowers, essential oils, vitamins, and minerals, are simply divine and ultra-luxurious. And why bloomin' not wear flowers on your face? What better way to complement your natural beauty than with nature itself?

Hurraw!

The genius balm that is Hurraw! was born from a steadfast desire to create the perfect balm. And that they did. This fair trade, vegan balm is like nothing your lips have kissed before. Their flawless blend is made from a carefully considered selection of raw and organic ingredients that are hand poured to create a balm so perfect, it's like a nourishing dessert for your lips – with mouth-watering flavours to boot. Once you glide this luscious lotion over your lips you'll be hooked for life.

Scout Cosmetics

Scout Cosmetics' rigorous ingredient recruitment process means their extensive range of Australian made organic products are all-natural, expert-formulated, and skin nourishing. They're committed to providing customers with natural products that embody 'modern, elegant, and natural beauty' and it shows in their beautiful range of skincare and cosmetics. Their Eco-Luxe 5 Free Nail Polish deserves some major kudos; with its breathable and water permeable formula enriched with superfoods, vitamins, and botanicals, this is one polish that will never impede your nail's health.

This is THE elixir for a wide variety of skin-woes with users praising its abilities to help with the likes of eczema, sunburn, and even scars. It's been around forever, and with a faithful following the world over – including a band of celebs – that can attest to its dazzling wizardry, this is one all-purpose beauty product that lives up to the hype. The short list of natural ingredients – olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, bee propolis – is said to be derived from an ancient Egyptian formula. Whatever its origins, it really is magical!

Blessed by Nature

Blessed by Nature are the ultimate in ethical skincare. Their range is 'created with love and authenticity' from local, ethically sourced Australian botanicals that are sustainably grown, all wrapped up in recyclable packaging that's as pretty and pure as the contents. A holistic approach resulted in a skincare range that's as diverse and unique as the women (or men) who use it, catering to all skin types from oily to sensitive, combination to dry; no matter your skin type Blessed by Nature will leave your skin rejuvenated. For a soothing, hydrating lift try their Hydrating Mist Toner made with Rose Water, Sweet Orange, and Green Tea for a sweet-smelling natural alternative to alcohol-based toners.

Ere Perez

Ere Perez's range of all-natural, toxin-free skincare products are pure and simple – a winning combination in the world of natural beauty. This Australian brand knows their stuff, and with a new line up of products hitting the shelves recently, their ever-expanding range just gets better and better.
