The organic beauty products I’m loving right now.

Today though I thought I’d pop in with a few organic beauty products that I’m really loving right now, that I think you will too! Some of the products are old favourites and some are new to me, but all work so well!

Moisturiser

Green People’s Vita Min Fix Cream* (£21 and free delivery) is hands down the best day moisturiser I’ve found.  One small application leaves my skin beautifully soft and moisturised without feeling heavy, oily, or sticky. It also makes a lovely base for make-up.  

I’ve been using this cream since the start of April and couldn’t be happier. I had some red dry skin patches on my cheeks which cleared up within a week of using the cream, and skin is noticeably much softer. The Vita Min Fix cream also has the advantage that it’s 89% organic and vegan friendly.  Double word score!

To be honest, £21 is a bit higher than I like to pay for moisturiser. However, I’m still using the bottle I purchased in April, and it’s still going strong.  There’s at least another month’s worth of moisturiser still in the pump. It does therefore feel pretty good value for money, especially with the difference it makes to my skin.

Hair Care

Since April I’ve also started using the Urtekram range of organic and vegan hair care products.  I’ve only recently come across the Danish brand, Urtekram, but I’ve really been enjoying their organic beauty products.  So much so that the whole family has been using them.  

I’ve been enjoying the Rose Shampoo and Rose Vegan Conditioner. My partner has enjoyed the Nettle Shampoo. And I’ve been using the Children’s Shampoo on my daughter! The Urtekram range leaves our hair soft and non-greasy and beautifully smelling and gets a big thumbs up in our house!

I’ve been picking bottles up locally at Real Foods in Edinburgh, where it’s around £5 a bottle. However, they are also available online from Real Foods (free shipping on orders over £29) and a few other sites on the internet.  

Admittedly the percentage of organic ingredients is quite low – around 14% organic. However, the ingredients are all-natural (in plain English too, which is always appreciated!) with no nasties.  In the case of the Rose Shampoo, it is made of water, vegetable oil products, corn sugar soap, aloe vera, glycerine, rose flower extract, rose geranium oil, salt, polysaccharide, citric acid, perfume (plant extract), vitamin E, and that’s it.  

Sunscreen

So far Summer hasn’t been very forthcoming in our corner of Scotland (come on sun!). However, I have been carrying Green People’s SPF 15 organic sunscreen* (£16 and free delivery) around in my handbag for the odd occasion when the sun has had his hat on.  82% of its ingredients are certified organic. What’s more, it’s great on sensitive skin – including my daughter’s young skin.  Although a note to vegans – it’s not vegan friendly, as it contains beeswax.

Is sunscreen considered a beauty product? I’m not sure, but I reapply regularly (every hour) and it’s offered us fantastic skin protection.  Green People sent me a bottle of this last year to try out and I enjoyed it so much I repurchased it locally in early spring when it ran out!  

I’m not worried about it being SPF 15, in fact, SPF 50 has its problems. If anything it makes me more aware of the need to reapply regularly.  With SPF 50 I get quite complacent. I put it on once in the morning and I am fooled into thinking I’m protected all day.  The truth is even with SPF 50 you need to be topping up your sunscreen regularly.

I’m quite low maintenance when it comes to beauty products, so these are my top organic beauty products for now!  Do you have any organic products that you swear by?  Do share in the comments below!

ps: here’s a peek into my natural skincare routine and my favourite organic body lotions.
