Come clean.

Good skin shouldn’t come at the cost of the planet.

Luckily, there are eco-friendly alternatives to everything these days, including all the products in your daily kincare regime.

We’ve gathered five natural beauty brands that are good for you and Mother Earth.

Your skin deserves the very best, so it’s important to be selective with the products you’re lathering on it. Using ingredients derived only from vitamins, minerals and botanicals, Edible Beauty Australia makes skincare that’s good enough to eat. Literally. The brand lives by the ethos that if you wouldn’t want to put something in your mouth, you won’t find it in any products. As well as a range of wellness supplements and teas, the brand makes cleansers, moisturisers, repair creams and serums. As a bonus, each formula is packaged with violet glass, which blocks light and extends the shelf life of your purchases.


Frank Body

Frank Body is no stranger to the natural beauty scene. Most recently, the brand has swapped its usual coffee grind formula for green tea leaves, arriving in the form of a limited-edition body scrub. Packed with green tea, honey and avocado oil, the new release promises to detoxify, hydrate and buff – leaving you with soft, dewy skin. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Frank Body scrub without the inclusion of a little coffee seed oil, meaning you can still get your caffeine fix. Available now in-store and online at MECCA Maxima and Frank Body.


Shop Natural

Hunting down the best natural brands can require a lot of patience and hard work. But online retailer Shop Natural has done the hard yards for you by gathering a wide range of Australian-owned home, beauty and skincare products. The site is designed to help you make an informed switch to natural products, with companies chosen on the merit of their sustainable practices and use of toxin-free ingredients. Among the growing selection, you’ll find Sanctum, Inika, Kester Black, Gemma Vendetta and more. Every item sold is also shipped 100 per cent plastic-free, using carbon-neutral delivery methods. You can also find the store on Instagram.



You can find great natural skincare all over the world, but Australian brand Aequora believes in sourcing ingredients from the local environment. Extracts from native botanicals like lilly pilly, Kakadu plums and desert quandongs are incorporated into the brand’s signature line. To preserve the Aussie flora and fauna, Aequora also employs cruelty-free testing methods, and uses recyclable packaging where possible. The all-vegan and Safe Cosmetics Australia-certified range includes body wash and lotion, a facial misting spray, hand cream, and an exfoliating scrub. Each product feature a natural, organic formula designed to work magic on all skin types.



When it comes to superhero skincare ingredients, rosehip oil is hard to beat. It’s moisturising, pH-balanced and helps minimise the appearance of scars, stretch marks and deep wrinkles. Trilogy has over 40 products within its range, with one bottle of their award-winning Certified Organic Rosehip Oil selling every 20 seconds globally. The brand’s latest product is the Rosehip Transformation Cleansing Oil. As well as rosehip oil, its formula includes sweet almond, grapeseed and papaya seed oils to cleanse, soften and strengthen skin. When mixed with water, the oil transforms into a milk-like formula that melts away makeup, dirt and impurities.
