What natural skincare is available on the high street?

What natural skincare is available on the high street?
I’m often asked where to buy natural and organic skincare on the high street. I mainly shop online but if I’m ever caught short e.g. I’m away from home and I’ve forgotten to pack my moisturiser, then I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Holland & Barrett
In my opinion it’s the best place to shop. The biggest range in store will be Dr Organics but you’ll also find Sukin, Trilogy, Beauty Kitchen, Weleda, Faith in Nature, Crazy Rumors, Akin, SAAF, Lavera and many more.

Waitrose
The best supermarket chain for greener products, when in store look out for Neals Yard, Weleda, Akin, Fushi, Pure Potions, Amie and Nourish. 

Boots
My go to in airports because I know there are free from brands which I am happy to use in an emergency. In store you can spot Yes To, Bulldog (for men) and deodorant brands Pitrok and Keep It Kind. More recently I’ve learned that you should find Sukin which is a reputable natural brand.

Marks & Spencer
Sadly only a few green brands spotted in store but they are recognisable and highly regarded so look for Neals Yard, Balance Me and Dr Hauschka. Yes you can buy REN but I've boycotted them for selling out to Unilever!

TK Maxx
Always worth a rummage as you’ll be surprised what you can find. I can’t guarantee the brands but I can tell you I have seen Sukin, Balance Me, Faith in Nature, Deep Steep, Neom, Pai, Dr Bronner’s and Dr Hauschka.

For full disclosure not everyone agrees on ingredients and classification of Green Beauty so I'm offering my perspective. Just be aware that on the high street you may have to dodge greenwashing (e.g. Soaper Duper, Good Things & Kind Natured) and some brands are only 'free from' certain undesirable ingredients. A good, honest natural brand can still be hard to find but it’s getting better, for instance, I took the photo above at a garden centre. I was amazed to find Akin skincare, a very well known Australian natural brand which I highly recommend. 

Did I miss anything off my list? Where do you buy natural skincare? Are you shopping on the high street?
