The 10 Best Natural Face Cleansers To Try in 2023

10 best natural face cleansers to try in 2023

Wash your way to better skin. Whatever your skin type, removing dirt, oil, sunscreen and makeup with a gentle face cleanser is an essential first step for healthy radiant skin.

But with so many different types of facial cleansers available, it can be difficult to find the best formula for your skin type. That’s where this guide comes in. We’ll walk you through the benefits of each natural face wash and cleanser—so you can quickly find the best cleanser for your needs.

Each face wash and cleanser in our collection is made with natural and organic ingredients and free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, phenoxyethanol, sodium laurel sulfates, denatured alcohol or other harsh chemicals.

 

BEST FACE CLEANSER FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE

We’ve highlighted our most popular face cleansers for men and women — organized by skin type —to help you get started. All will remove light makeup but opt for a cleansing oil or balm if you wear heavier makeup.

Most of our facial cleansers are suitable for all skin types so feel free to mix it up depending on your mood and preferences. See below for full details.

 

WHICH TYPE OF FACE WASH OR CLEANSER SHOULD I USE?

Squeaky clean comes with a price. How you wash your face can make a huge difference in how it looks and feels. It’s essential your cleanser removes buildup, dirt, makeup, and sunscreen from the face without damaging the skin’s delicate protective barrier.

Yet a 2020 CeraVe survey found many of us are using the wrong cleansers for our skin type. The survey found facial cleansers are often thought of as one-size-fits-all. Six in ten adults surveyed do not look for cleansers formulated for their skin type. And, many associate clean skin with: a squeaky clean feeling (41%), skin feeling tight (32%) and a tingly sensation (22%) – all indicators that your skin has lost moisture, which can lead to dryness and irritation.

So, how do you choose a better cleanser?

The best face wash is one that specifically targets your skin’s needs. Some face cleansers are hydrating; others eliminate excess oil without over drying or stripping skin. There are also facial cleansers that remove heavy makeup or exfoliate the skin’s surface leaving it brighter and more even looking.

Not sure what your skin needs? A facial cleanser formulated for “all skin type” is a good place to start. For everyday cleansing, here’s what to look for depending on your age and current skin care routine:
