5 Natural Beauty + Wellness Brands You Should Try

We all want to have better products for our beauty routine, right?! Even if you aren’t totally committed to using natural or organic products (or… maybe you have never tried any at all!!), it’s worth trying to reduce our chemical exposure by choosing natural options whenever possible. Many natural beauty products are, unfortunately, not quite as effective or easy to use as traditional products. But, if we want to reduce our exposure to toxins, it might be worth the trade! Fortunately, several brands actually get it right when it comes to creating natural products that are also beautifully effective! Here are 5 natural beauty + wellness brands you should try if you want to make some natural swaps.

Beauty + Wellness Brands That Get It Right

100% Pure

100% Pure offers products that are all-natural and biodegradable that come in safe packaging. This brand offers various formulations to help tackle multiple kinds of skin concerns.

They offer a wide range of beauty and wellness products — serums, eye masks, makeup, sunscreen, hair care, and more! I love that their makeup is all tinted with fruit!

Their products are mid-range in price, so if you are on a budget, you may need to be a bit more choosy with what you purchase. 

It’s worth investing in quality products, though, and this line is definitely a great choice!

LIVE Botanical

This beautiful brand starts with fresh herbs as the base of their products! Perfect for those who really struggle with skin concerns, you will find all kinds of products ready to help you.

You can find body care, bath products, and medicinal products, such as soothing balms! Their bath products sound lovely to help me relax after a long week.

Their products also have specific lines for various skin types!


This is a GREAT option if you don’t want to order online! Check your local Target to find Acure’s great products. You can also purchase many of their products on Amazon.

This brand offers three different branches of products — hair care, body care, and skin care.

Their skincare line provides all kinds of formulations for various skin types, which is really helpful if you have specific concerns. Their shampoos are sulfate-free, and they have a dry shampoo option!

Avalon Organics

Avalon is also easily found in local stores, even beyond the more natural stores. Often, Walgreens, CVS, or other retailers will stock their products.

Plus, the price point is really great! Many of their products are under $10, so they are perfect even if you are on a budget.

I like that they have full product lines for all their body care formulations, so the products are super effective!

Dr. Bronner’s

If you want natural cleaners or soaps, Dr. Bronners is the perfect brand! Offering soaps that are vegetable oil based, toothpaste, hair care, and more, all of their products are all-natural and organic.

Their soaps do not contain preservatives or foaming agents, which makes them safer, but if you are switching to their products from traditional soap, they might feel a bit odd when you first try them.

Essential oils make all the products smell really fresh, clean, and you can leave behind the yucky chemical smell!
