The 10 Best Organic Serums for All Skins

Want to get rid of wrinkles? Looking to lighten dark spots? These organic serums work for all skin types!

By Lora O’Brien

We all want flawless skin that positively glows thanks to the slew of products we use, right? Our shelves are stacked with copious products that all promise to make our skin dreams come true. And yet some of us lack one of the most important beauty items: an organic serum. And if you don’t have a clue what a serum really does, well, you’re not alone.

Some of us think a serum is the same thing as a face cream. Some think it’s the same as using an oil. The truth? A serum is a beauty must-have that comes before a moisturiser, and just after the skin has been both cleansed and toned.

But what can organic serums actually do for our skin, at what age should we start using one and why is it best to select a serum with organic ingredients? We asked Diane Elizabeth, founder of Skin Care Ox, a product review site focused on organic skincare, for her advice. Here’s what she had to say.

First up: why do we even need a serum?

A serum is a skin treatment that is made from highly concentrated and potent ingredients that have been selected and designed to tackle a whole realm of skin issues, such as dryness, redness, wrinkles, dullness, rosacea and even breakouts, that perhaps a simple cleanser and moisturizer duo wouldn’t handle effectively solo.

How are serums different from creams?

The main differentiating factor between a serum and a facial cream is the consistency. Serums usually have a water or an oil base, therefore they have a thinner consistency than creams. Creams are not only thicker, but are designed to add moisture and provide the surface of our skin with a barrier. Serums are more concentrated than creams and work to penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin to target underlying skin issues.

At what age should we start using them?

As soon as possible! There are serums for just about every skin issue. If you’re young, you can invest in a serum to treat skin conditions such as acne or dryness. You can also use serums that work to prevent signs of ageing and protect against sun damage (vitamin C serums are particularly great for this). The sooner you start to use serums, the better your skin will age over time.

If you are older and are already battling fine lines and wrinkles, it’s not too late to add a potent serum (or two) to your daily routine. While some people choose to layer multiple serums on top of each other, I typically recommend to use one serum during the day and another at night. This helps to prevent any potential negative reactions as a result of combining two powerful products.

What should we look for in a serum?

As we age, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture and collagen production slows dramatically. Look for serums that treat these issues with potent ingredients like:

  • hyaluronic acid (for moisture)
  • vitamin c (for collagen production)
  • antioxidants (like green tea, resveratrol, vitamin A, and flavonoids).

What does ‘organic’ mean in skincare, really?

There are a lot of misconceptions about organic skin care. When a beauty product carries the label “organic,” it just means that certain ingredients in the product were produced organically. Organic itself means produced without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), sewage, ionizing radiation, as well as antibiotics and growth hormones.

It’s important to note that while a product may use some organically produced ingredients, it may also contain a ton of harmful ingredients which are not organic. There are no current standards in the U.S. cosmetic and beauty industry which outline when a product can or cannot carry the labels “clean,” “natural,” and “organic.” It is still up to the consumer to research the brand, the product ingredients, and the validity of the organic claims.

Why is organic important in skincare?

According to a study by the Environmental Working Group, women in the US apply an average of 168 chemicals to their faces and bodies every single day. Additionally, it is very possible for many of those chemicals to be absorbed through our skin and into our bloodstream. This includes pesticides, as well as known potentially carcinogenic and toxic ingredients like parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and PEG compounds, ethoxylated ingredients, propylene glycol, chemical preservatives, and many other undesirables.

By using clean, organic, and natural beauty products which do not contain harmful (and potentially carcinogenic) chemicals, women can greatly reduce their chemical load and improve their overall health. Additionally, many of these chemicals are also highly irritating and can exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, dry skin, and more. By choosing organic products, women can take an important step toward improving the long-term health of their skin.

This concentrated serum helps to brighten skin, boosts collagen health and minimises the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
