6 All-Natural Cleansers To Kick-Start A Cleaner Spring Beauty Routine

In 2019, with the borderline-extremist focus on clean and ethically-sourced ingredients, you don't need to be consciously "cleaning up" your medicine cabinet to find yourself with a shelf full of all-natural labels. Since our go-to retailers, like Target and Sephora, have enacted 'Clean Beauty' initiatives, it's easy to find a Drunk Elephant cleanser that magically melts away your crusty mascara bits and also happens to be formulated without sulfates or synthetic fragrance — which, for you, might just be a nice bonus.

To prove the universal functionality of toxin-free face wash, we've rounded up a handful of best-selling all-natural cleansers, all of which are just as effective at removing makeup and dirt particles as their counterparts without a clean seal. No matter if you're die-hard about a skin-care routine that's fully green — from soap to toenail polish — or you're just fresh out of face wash, scroll through to find an all-natural cleanser that will leave your skin feeling baby-soft, using nothing more than plant enzymes and organic oils.

If you'd describe your skin type as dull or dry, you may already be devoted to a gentle cleansing balm, which are great because they melt away makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils. This formula in particular is a favorite (with over 2,000 5-star Sephora reviews) because it's formulated using Farmacy's proprietary blend of ingredients, including papaya extract, a naturally-derived exfoliant that leaves your skin brighter and pores smaller — no double-cleanse required.
