All Natural: 7 Indian Skincare Brands You Need To Know About


Skincare has come a long way since tubs of cold creams and Vaseline jars, and we can’t thank the skincare gods enough! We now have a wide range of natural skincare products such as face oils, serums, sleeping masks, and so much more to choose.

The best part – you can order them online and pay with just a swipe of your card!

An Indian skincare brand I stumbled upon on Instagram, Vaunt doesn’t have a whole lot of products to show off. And that’s a good thing. Their brand philosophy is about offering daily solutions for your AM & PM skincare routine that are simple, effective, and efficient, and most importantly, don’t clutter your beauty cabinet.

As of now, they have a total of six products featuring a mix of face oils, serums, mists, and face washes. I’ve tried their Multivitamin Super Hydrator (a daily-use serum), and Daisy Extract + Vitamin B Face Wash (a non-foaming, creamy cleanser), and both have fared exceptionally well for my dry skin.

One of the organic skincare brands that pride itself on being 100% natural, Ilana was yet another Instagram discovery for me. Their serums and toners are the absolute highlights in their collection.

An oily-skin friend swears by their Argan + Tea Tree serum for its skin-clarification properties as well as for being a superb primer for makeup.

I, on the other hand, have recently started using their Rose + Camellia face mist, and it gives a fresh, dewy look and preps the skin nicely for serums & moisturizers. Plus, it smells divine!

Another homegrown natural Indian skincare brand from Mumbai, Neemli does skincare that’s a 100% natural and non-toxic. If you’re on the lookout for some good serums and face creams, Neemli has some rather lovely things to offer.

Their Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C serum is much coveted and is said to provide heaps of hydration to dehydrated skin while brightening it up as well. Other yummy offerings include Matcha & Coconut Face Scrub, Turmeric Root & Olive Squalane Elixir (a face oil), Argan & Rose Day Cream, and much more, which you can easily incorporate to your AM/PM skincare routine.

Say hello 👋 to smooth elbows and knees with SPOTLIGHT💡- especially formulated for areas that need extra attention 💪 Spotlight works to undo the damage by deeply moisturising and renewing the thicker skin around your elbows, hands and knees! Try this one out @llwindia all weekend ✨#OrganicRiot

Organic Riot is as minimal as it gets. They have only four products up for offer at the moment, and each is meant to target a specific skin type or condition. ‘Dazzle’ – an anti-pigmentation serum with superhero ingredients like Moringa oil, liquorice extract, ‘Smog-Block’ – an anti-pollution moisturizer with rosehip oil, zinc oxide, and manuka essential oil, ‘Zap’ – an anti-acne serum, and ‘Spotlight’ – a body moisturizer.

Organic Riot brings the ingredients from the rainforest of South America, the farms located near the volcanoes of New Zealand, and even the Western Ghats in Maharashtra. With an award-winning natural skincare formulator working behind the scenes for them, it’s not hard to believe that their skincare products do work!

I’d consider them for their excellent work ethics, a brilliant product development team, and super chic packaging.

Price: Starting at INR 1,120

What’s unique about this brand is that its products have been formulated a family of dermatologists. Even better? They’ve been crafted uniquely for Indian skin considering the difference in melanin, genes, and the environment – from their foreign counterparts.

The products are 99.5% natural, vegan & Jain friendly and completely non-toxic.

Items on our radar: The Basic Brightening Extra Gentle Daily Peel – a super gentle way to exfoliate your skin to reveal glowing skin using AHA’s (alpha-hydroxy acids/ fruit acids) instead of harsh scrubs. And their Haldi & Hyaluronic Acid Sleeping Mask which is designed to hydrate, brighten, and repair the skin while you get your beauty sleep is making the rounds for being one of the best sleeping masks out there!

#Repost @ambersityblog with @get_repost ・・・ The @juicy_chemistry Organic Makeup Cleanser was one of it's fantastic launches that I always wanted to try. I've used it under various circumstances, & finally ready to speak my mind about it. . 💫 First off, the packaging is mind-blowing. I can't help but speak 2 words on it. Translucent, semi-frosted glass bottle with pump dispenser, this packaging is all things classy. A protective lid prevents the dispenser from gathering dust.💚💚 . 💫The liquid is runny like water, light amber colored & almost fragrance-free. Soaks easy in any cotton or reusable makeup removing cloth pads. . 💫Removes makeup super nicely. It didn't sting my eyes, but please take your own precautions when trying for the first time. Use only a little qty & gentle swipes to remove color from eyelids. Long-staying waterproof mascara needs 2-3 swipes to come off completely. . 💫This feels lighter than any micellar water I've used, & love how it doesn't leave any residue on my skin. It is gentle like water, but does its job well.💕 . 💫I also use it on days I'm not wearing makeup, & discovered that it effectively cleans dirt & grime gathered through the day! It's amazing as a first step in #doublecleansing. 💕 . 💫Contains #maplesyrup which is a natural pore cleanser & exfoliating agent too. You can be assured of a clean face post a few swipes of this! . 💫Also contains rose & lavender hydrosols that tone & soothe the skin.😍 No doubt my skin has a fresh after-feel, which is very different from conventional makeup removers. . 💫Vitamins C & E have potent benefits for the skin, & #hempseedoil makes this great for use by oily skin types. . 💫Coconut, castor & olive oils hydrate the skin, & prevent it from feeling dry or sensitive after makeup removal. . This Organic Makeup Cleanser from JC is a #musthave in every vanity. I love how multipurpose it is, & particularly how it's so gentle & effective. Read my detailed review by clicking the link in bio!✨ . And my code REETUPARNA that entitles you to a flat 15% off on ALL their products, valid both on app & website! . P.S. product is #gifted but opinions my own. . . #juicychemistry #makeupcleanser #organicbeauty

If I had to describe Juicy Chemistry in one sentence, it would be ‘distilled nature in a bottle.’ Every product is handcrafted with the finest local ingredients in small batches to ensure a maximum useful shelf-life.

This Coimbatore based brand is primarily known for their cold-pressed oils and essential oils but have many other natural skincare products such as face washes, lip balms & scrubs, makeup cleansers as well. The Helichrysum & Rosehip Facial Oil is great for anyone with scarring and pigmentation issues. Having used some of their oils, I can vouch for their efficacy – they’re all super light and get easily absorbed by the skin.

They have plenty of options to pick from, so take some time to explore their website and see what works best for your skin type/condition.

Price: Starting at INR 280

Remember Lush? That brand you’d see in malls once upon a time with huge black tubs full of luscious creams & scrubs and beautifully textured soaps that you’d almost want to eat? Well, Enn’s Closet reminds us of that with their products and packaging.

Their range is natural and free of nasties you see in many drugstores and even luxury brands, yes. But what is striking is how they ‘ve made each product in a way that makes you feel like you’re in a spa session.

From good face masks featuring yumminess such as cocoa & banana to face creams made from ghee (that’s been washed a 100 times) and saffron, their range sure makes my mouth water.

Price: Starting at INR 550
