There is no shortage of facial creams out there. From extra hydrating and anti-aging to acne defence, oil-free, sensitive skin, night and day, it can be challenging to sort out precisely what type of cream is best for you. The big thing that sets the products entered into the Clean Beauty Awards apart from your standard pharmacy brands is that they contain no synthetic preservatives, no harsh ingredients, toxins, carcinogens or chemical compounds. This means that while they may be best suited to a particular skin type, they all tend to be well suited to nearly anyone. Gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin but active and functional enough to work on targeted skincare woes. Our mega list of 27 face creams is your natural guide to beautiful skin.
