To be frank, it’s really challenging to differentiate what’s actually organic and what’s not these days. Companies are putting out these labels claiming to be “natural” and the best way to identify it is by checking the ingredient list. Though this may require some time and patience, you’re doing your skin a monumental favour by giving it the TLC it needs.
Facial toners, in particular, are likely to have plenty of synthetic fragrances and artificial toning agents because they’re much easier to obtain and these chemical-filled formulation also tend to have longer shelf-lives in comparison to the ones with natural ingredients.
So if you want to treat your skin better before it’s too late, here’s a round-up of the best organic toners for different skin types.
