Some people think cleanser isn’t a super important part of your their skincare routine—like, it’s only on your skin for a couple seconds and then you rinse it down the drain—but I couldn’t disagree more. If you’re going to put something on your face every single day, don’t you want to make sure it’s not stressing your skin out? That’s why I decided to make the switch to natural face washes. They’re made with plant-based ingredients instead of sketchy ones like parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, making them a safer choice for you and your skin. And did I mention they also work to brighten, moisturize, and, yup, even destroy waterproof makeup? Keep reading for the 12 best natural face washes for every skin type that’ll make you want to ditch your old face wash RN.

Best Natural Cleansing Oil
One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil
Your waterproof liner, glitter eyeshadow, and the grime that made it into your pores after a long-ass day don’t stand a chance against this natural cleansing oil. The highlights of the formula include fruit enzymes that gently exfoliate, vitamin E that blocks free-radical damage, and fatty acids that keep your skin hydrated. And, no, the oil won’t leave you greasy; it gently cleanses without leaving behind a slick residue.
Best Natural Gel Face Wash
Herbivore Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser

Best Anti-Aging Natural Face Wash
Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
The ingredients list for this natural face wash reads like an over-priced green smoothie: kale, spinach, green tea. But this cleanser is proof that superfoods aren’t just for your insides.
