There are many different kind of organic face washes on the market–each crafted for a specific skin condition.
There are gel cleansers, cream cleansers, clay cleansers, foaming cleansers, non-foaming cleansers, oil cleansers, micellar cleansers, and bar cleansers (just to name a few!).
With so much to choose from, here’s a quick and handy guide to selecting the best organic face wash for your skin type.
Generally speaking, the best organic cleansers for dry skin are non-foaming cleansers.
Non-foaming cleansers do not contain soaps which may strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, they are packed with moisturizing ingredients and emollients that leave your skin very hydrated.
Look for organic cleansers that contain hydrating oils (like coconut, sunflower, honey, hyaluronic acid, exfoliants (to help clear way flakey/dead skin), and aloe vera.
The LUCE Aloe Vera face wash it is very mild and can be use for all skin types, even the more sensitive skins.
NORMAL / COMBO SKIN
Normal and combination skin types can generally find both non-foaming and foaming cleansers to be effective.
Great ingredients for normal/combo skin include vitamin C (sun protection), antioxidants (slow down the visible signs of aging), clays (help keep pores clear), and natural oils for moisture.
Both foaming and non-foaming organic cleansers will work for acne-prone skin—depending on whether you suffer from dry skin acne or oily skin acne.
Acne-prone skin types should look for organic face washes that contain bacteria fighting ingredients like tea tree oil, honey, willow bark, clays (bentonite and kaolin clays), green tea, probiotics, and rose oil.
Sensitive skin simply refers to skin that is currently or can be easily irritated.
Sensitive skin can include rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, or simply skin that doesn’t react well to most products.
The best organic cleansers for sensitive skin are non-foaming and contain gentle ingredients like lavender, aloe vera like LUCE famous face wash, chamomile, calendula, jojoba oil, shea butter, borage seed oil, and sunflower oil to name a few.
Avoid alcohols, foaming cleansers, and anything with strong chemical exfoliants.
The best organic cleansers for oily skin types are foaming cleansers. These cleansers are much stronger at removing oil, makeup, and dirt than their non-foaming counterparts.
Additionally, oily skin types should look for cleansers that contain clay, citrus fruits, oils that balance sebum production like jojoba oil.
MATURE / AGING SKIN
Mature and aging skin lacks moisture and elasticity, which causes wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines.
Mature skin types will benefit from highly moisturizing non-foaming cleansers that are packed with antioxidants.
Deep cleanses and exfoliators are also great for mature skin as they help to speed up our natural cell turnover rate.
