It’s time to turn the spotlight on some of the very best Canadian organic and natural skincare brands.
You’ve probably never heard of these because they aren’t driven by deep pockets with global marketing campaigns, but make no mistake these small, independent brands are doing it right!
A Few of the Best Canadian Organic and Natural Skincare Brands
I’ve been on a journey discovering locally made products, all over Canada, from Vancouver to Toronto to Montreal, and connecting with the passionate female entrepreneurs behind them.
These indie beauty brands from Canada focus on creating luxurious, sustainable, effective, and most importantly healthy products, which restore luster to skin without the added harmful chemicals.
I’m so excited to share them with you and I have a feeling these results-driven, Canadian organic and natural skin care brands listed below will soon become your new favorites too!
Helena Lane Skincare
Helena Lane’s skin care line is simple and elegant. Handcrafted in small batches near Vancouver, BC by Helena Lane herself, each product contains only unrefined, unprocessed, and certified organic ingredients.
Helena uses as few ingredients as possible. There are no extras, just nutrient-rich essentials to help your skin look its very best—balanced and healthy. This is minimalist skin care at its peak!
If you have to choose just one product, go for the Argan + Frankincense Serum. It is one of my go-to’s for healthy summer skin. This serum is intensely hydrating, easily absorbed, and great for all skin types. It just won best Face Care product of the Clean Beauty Awards.
Belmondo Organic Skin Care
Hailing from the West Coast, Belmondo was created by Vancouver-based esthetician Daniela Belmondo. Growing up, Daniela’s mother used olive oil in her skin care routine. Appreciating this ancient Italian wisdom, Daniela created her own skin care line around the healing properties of olive oil.
Each Belmondo product is made with a signature blend of olive oil infused with organic calendula, chamomile flower, lavender, and rosehip—chosen for their potent healing and nourishing properties. Belmondo is luxurious clean beauty done right. The scents are heavenly, the cream velvety, and the ingredients pure.
Plus, the packaging design makes it almost impossible not to leave out on the vanity.
When choosing what to try, don’t gloss over The Balm. This might be the most unique lip product I’ve ever come across. It looks like a regular lip balm, but as you apply it, it glides on silky and adds shine to lips, like a gloss.
Graydon Clinical Luxury By Nature
Forget about farm to table, Graydon Clinical Luxury is farm to face skin care! Using plant-based ingredients sourced from Canadian growers, this skin care line was created to be as effective and luxurious as any mainstream brand, minus the yucky harmful ingredients.
Made in a lab in small batches, ingredients are chosen for their bioactive qualities that help maintain and restore the skin’s natural luster. Dubbed an ingredient anthropologist, Graydon herself is a wiz in the kitchen, former yoga instructor, and farmer’s market foraging pro. This background inspired her to focus on potent ingredients that are mostly food-derived.
The Green Cream is your must try product. It is light, yet intensely nourishing. The cream’s light green hue comes from nutrients like chlorophyll and broccoli seed oil, powerful antioxidants and detoxifiers. It’s like green juice, but for your face. This cream is a basic staple that is suitable for all skin types, from sensitive to mature and everything in between.
Jordan River Soapworks
Jordan River Soapworks products are inspired by a cool, clean West Coast vibe. Think detoxifying seaweed, hand harvested sea salt, and purifying glacial marine clay. Handcrafted on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, these products are a blend of artisanal purity and understated elegance.
Jordan River Soapworks specializes in soaps, bath soaks, and body butters made without artificial colors, fragrances, or preservatives. The majority of the ingredients are locally sourced and organic whenever possible.
The artisanal soaps are a must try. The scents are subtle, and gentle enough to use to wash your face. The sea salt + seaweed artisanal soap is definitely a favorite, and oh so West Coast!
