17 Organic Beauty Brands from Around the Globe

By Sophia Hussain

Let’s face it–most organic beauty products we read about in English language magazines are from America or the UK. Whether it’s Josie Maran, Green People or Cowshed, most of us are already familiar with top US/UK brands thanks to shopping sites like EcoDiva Beauty, and magazines like Eluxe, of course!

But organic beauty is a trend that’s growing throughout the world, and so I thought I would introduce you to some brilliant brands I’ve discovered from around the globe.

All of these offer  organic and/or natural ingredients – an absolute must for maintaining beautiful healthy skin.  Often housed in minimalist packaging, these eco-friendly beauty brands offer chic collections created by brilliant founders whose personal visions inspires the creation of an eco-friendly healthy cosmetics collection.

Discover now why you must add some of these stellar additions to your personal apothecary supply. After all, it’s chic to go global!

Africa & The Middle East

The abundance of luxury and beauty is captured in this elite organic skincare collection created by a Dubai-based dermatologist. Shiffa, (Arabic for “heals”) offers simple solutions to hydrate, tone, and nourish the skin, using exotic ingredients such as: roses, frankincense, and meadowfoam.

Founded in 2006 by Reem al Khalifa, Green Bar is a brand that reflects a modern representation of the Middle East whilst embracing the ancient history it has to offer. The Bahraini brand aims to instil peace and tranquillity in the body from within using only nature’s finest ingredients. Specialising in beauty oils that have been carefully selected, Green Bar takes the most beautiful and natural ingredients, and honours them by creating products that are naturally extravagant.

Long a favourite at Eluxe, Savane unleashes the power of organic African oils to care for your skin. Just some of the exotic but effective ingredients include Cape Snowbush oil, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil and Marula Seed Oil, all of which have been used by African women for centuries to protect their skin from the sun and ageing.

Hailing from South Africa is SOiL,  a range of organic-certified aromatherapy and skincare products to heal the mind and body.  The aromatherapy line consists of an array of oils and remedy rollers to create an overall sense of well-being, and hydrosals designed to treat ailments including respiratory conditions. Whilst the skincare collection consists of body balms rich in skin nourishing coconut oil and shea butter.  SOiL is a socially conscious brand as the essential oils are farmed in Zululand through self-sustained community initiatives.

Scandinavia

The natural beauty of Scandinavia has lead to a fabulous Finnish beauty invasion.  Be in a Supermood, a holistic natural beauty line in three moods: Ego Boost (reinforces immunity and self-esteem) Beauty Sleep (restores the skin and promotes restful sleep), and Youth Glo (launching this summer).

Capturing the essence of pure beauty is Mia Hoyto Cosmetics, a nurturing organic skincare collection with eco-certified nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, and botanical extracts, including sumptuous rose oil.

unnamed-5

Go with the flow to restore your harmony with this botanical infused skincare collection. Flow Kosmetiikka has a unique range of shampoo and body soaps using ingredients native to the region, such as eucalyptus.

unnamed-9

Maria Akerberg makes not only natural makeup, but also gently scented organic skincare products. One of our favourites is her Cardamom Orange hand cream, which is packed with nourishing Shea Butter, bee’s wax, and Jojoba oil to hydrate hands, and vitamin C to prevent wrinkles and brown spots. Her lipsticks, which are highly pigmented but contain absolutely no harmful chemicals, come in a wide array of flattering hues, and are exactly the kinds of formulations that beg to be kissed.

One more top brand we’d like to share is from Norway. Alexander Sprekenhus makes minimally packed, basic skincare such as body oils, facial cleansers and scrubs that are designed to be perfect for both male and female skincare routines (and bathroom designs!)

Alexander-Sprekenhus-11

Eastern Europe

This Baltic beauty brand merged the passion for a healthy lifestyle of four passionate Latvian ladies who co-founded to create MàDARA Organic Skincare.  Named after the wild madder plant (bedstraw) which is grown in the Baltic meadows, and comprises organic botanicals in the skincare and cosmetics collection designed to enhance your natural beauty.

unnamed-7

A popular Bulgarian beauty regimen is using rose water or rose oils for maintaining youthful skin.  Organic-certified luxury beauty brand arbÃ… «   offers a fragrant Rose Garden line and an anti-aging line comprised of botanical extracts, essential oils, and natural active ingredients – touted as a natural alternative to botox.

Southern Europe

Matarrania is a pampering organic skincare collection, handmade in the Spanish village of Terul, and infused with cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil – which retains the olive’s vitamin E content, an essential potent antioxidant for promoting youthful skin.

unnamed-10

Hailing from Greece is Odeia an organic skincare collection influenced by hydrosols (floral waters) distilled from either lemons or oranges.  There are five lines (red, yellow, orange, purple, and green), with each corresponding to the colours of the fruits and botanical blends included in each cohort.

Asia & The Far East

Though China is reconsidering its law that requires all cosmetics to be tested on animals, there are still very few pure, organic beauty brands coming from the most populated nation on Earth. However, Japan is extremely forward thinking and produces several great  brands, many of which  focus on skin lightening and sun protection. One of the best organic brands for this is Naturaglace, which produces a light, transparent SPF 43 cream that contains no nasties. The brand is also well known for its skincare and makeup range.

SLY Japan is another full range of skincare products, with a focus on skin lightening and general skincare. Aromatherapy is a huge component of the brand’s appeal, as are the patisserie-inspired packages each unit is housed in.

The exotic beauty of the women of Pakistan is captured in this organic-certified range that reveals the beauty secrets from this region.  Popular brand  Love Organic    uses mainly rosehip oil, which is packed with four skin-essential omegas: 3 (restores elasticity), 6 (combats hydration), 7 (enhances skin tone) and 9 (plumps fine lines).   Nurtures, hydrates and reveals glowing skin too!

Ayurveda rules in India, and there are plenty of brands using this ancient knowledge. Kama Ayurveda  is one such brand.  Launched  in 2002, this company represents top of the line luxurious Ayurvedic care. They have a wonderful package that involves a complete care pack for three months prior to a wedding, consisting of Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment, Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Scrub, and the Nalpamaradi Tailam Skin Brightening Treatment. The pack uses the power of 12 herbs to bring vibrancy to the skin and the powerful Nalpamaradi treatment has a similar effect on the entire body.

Australia

There can be no doubt that Australia is on the cutting edge when it comes to eco-beauty brands, worthy of an entire article on their own. But one I’ve grown to love myself is  Inika,  a luxury certified-organic and mineral makeup collection with a brilliant line of vegan cosmetics brushes.  Given that it was born in a sunny clime, one of the main ingredients used in this comprehensive range is zinc oxide which acts as a natural sunscreen. Inika goes a step further in the natural stakes by ensuring their sunscreens are non-nano, and non micronised, meaning the particles are not absorbed into the bloodstream. Their award-winning Mineral Foundation is a triple threat product: concealer, foundation, and powder all-in-one, and their creamy lip glosses and lipsticks will leave your lips feeling  sensuously soft.

South America  

How could we possibly leave out South America when it’s home to so many great eco-friendly brands? One being Boti-k, a company that was founded by Argentine couple Florencia and Ignacio after they faced a challenge with their son. Born on the autistic spectrum, he was very sensitive to the chemicals such as preservatives and parabens, so the pair decided to create their own range of soaps and shampoos to help him. Now Boti-k has  developed a range of products that can be used by other people that find themselves sensitive to synthetic chemicals, whether they be babies, children or adults.

Right beside Argentina, you can find Brazil, a nation also known for its beautiful women and stunning natural scenery. Natura is one of their biggest brands, and contains many of the organic and natural ingredients the country is rich in, from Acai and guarana to mate and more. Their Ekos skincare range is a top seller in the country.

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
