Natural skincare is an ever-growing movement, free of toxic ingredients that poorly influence our skin and general health. Luckily, consumers are gifted with plenty of healthier alternatives, containing organic ingredients with anti-inflammatory, rejuvenation, and hydration effects – and this only scratches the surface. Ranging from bearberry to camellia oil, here are 10 natural ingredients to boost the health and glow of your skin.
Though the bearberry plant may be easily recognised by its bright, red berries, the leaves of the plant actually hold the skin-promoting nutrients – most notably the compound Arbutin. This key component is often integrated into skincare products to help brighten the skin by lessening the appearance of age and dark spots. You can find bearberry in our Refining Cleanser and the Men’s After Shave + Moisturiser.
Jojoba can fight against chapping and chaffing while helping to repair the skin. This makes it an ideal component of lips balms, such as Clémence’s Ultimate Lips and Rose Tinted Lips. However, it doesn’t stop there. Jojoba oil can assist and support many other aspects of skin health, mainly due to its anti-inflammatory effects. This includes the easing of conditions such as eczema and rosacea. Another reason why we use it in all of our face care products.
Beeswax offers a trinity of natural skin benefits to admire. Wielding anti-inflammation, anti-microbial, and skin-protecting properties, the popular ingredient is often added to skin care products to create a barrier between the skin and a surrounding environment, while simultaneously retaining moisture – a winning combination!
Lavender is well-known for its relaxing, soothing properties, though the essential oil packs a much bigger punch. Lavender oil is integrated into many skin care products for its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. As a result, lavender can commonly be found in after-sun spray and soothing gel. In the Clémence Organics range, you can find it in our Ultimate Hand + Body Lotion and Ultimate SOS Balm.
Just as sunflower seeds are rich with nutrients to enhance our diet and well being, the oil extracted can also benefit our skin in many ways. Vitamin A, C, and D, as well as fatty acids, found in the oil can help fight off bacteria that cause acne. Plus, the abundance of vitamin E can also repair and hydrate the skin.
Camellia oil is a popular beauty ingredient in Japan, otherwise called Tsubaki oil. The compound is very versatile, particularly due to the array of nutrients found within it, including vitamin A, D, and E alongside many forms of fatty acids. Camellia oil helps by boosting skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of scars. You will find camellia oil in the Clémence Organics Refining Cleanser.
Calendula oil is taken from the marigold flower for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal effects. It’s actively added to all of our baby products to help with eczema, diaper rash, and other skin irritations. The oil is also praised as a beneficial ingredient for encouraging hair and general health.
Rosehip has earned the reputation as a beneficial ingredient in many skin reviving products, such as the Ultimate Face Cream by Clémence. Organic rosehip is overflowing with an impressive collection of nutrients, including vitamin A, C, and E as well as a combination of fatty acids, helping to even the skin tone and boost elasticity.
Coconut oil nourishes and supports the skin in more ways than one, offering rapid hydration, anti-inflammation, assistance with wound healing, and anti-microbial capabilities to help with acne. The oil is packed with fatty acids, is easily absorbed by the skin, and can be found in many moisturising products.
Evening Primrose Oil
With anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, evening primrose oil is ideal for assisting with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The compound is extracted from the evening primrose plant and is packed with essential fatty acids.
In Summary, with the ability to moisturise, hydrate, heal, rejuvenate, and soothe the skin, minus the harmful effects of chemical ingredients, it’s no wonder organic skincare is on the rise.
Though finding a range that incorporates all of these natural ingredients may seem like a daunting task, the process is rather simple. Clémence Organics integrate all of these components into many of their skincare products, ranging from lip balm and moisturisers to cleansers and toners. You’re welcome!

Did you watch the most recent series of the War on Waste on the ABC? I really enjoy this show as its slowly opening our eyes to the issues we face surrounding waste. I love it because it leaves me feeling educated and aware. At the same time I’m left drowning in guilt. Is it just me?

I get asked this question a lot and it’s a good one. The fact that I’m a naturopath and I created these products is not enough to call them naturopathic. So what exactly does naturopathic mean and what makes Clémence products different?

As a naturopath, I’m always thinking about dietary and lifestyle recommendations to complement my organic skin care range. Drinking herbal teas has got to one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to further benefit skin. Not only do they taste great but the actives in herbs are absorbed and taken-up quicker than supplements.
