Did our recent article on “Non-Toxic Skin Care Products That Really Work” and reviews of clean beauty brands Kjaer Weis and Ecco Bella get you curious about natural beauty products? Or were you already on the Goop, juice detoxes, clean beauty and kale smoothies train? Either way, whether you’re a long-time devotee or newbie searching out nontoxic skincare and makeup you’ll want to know about these natural beauty shops (online and brick & mortar).

Ayla Beauty

Why they’re great:

The filters sorting Ayla Beauty’s local and international products are granular and make choosing a product easy. Consumers can search products based on skin type or concern; hair type, texture, or scalp condition; and even brand, age, or other considerations, such as whether you’re pregnant or not. We highly recommend this site if you’re a green beauty newbie and don’t know where to start. The brand will even curate a custom sample kit based on an in-depth online consultation for $32, which includes shipping and a $5 credit towards future purchases.

Online and Brick & Mortar:

The San Francisco store front hosts regular studio events that often include advice from renowned dermatologists, aestheticians, hairstylists and makeup artists. Sign up here to get on the invitation list.

Returns/Shipping:

Free shipping on orders over $35; available globally. Unopened items can be returned for store credit within 15 days of purchase.

Why they’re great:

Credo Beauty has two outposts in addition to their online store – one in New York’s hip shopping neighborhood, Soho, and a second on Fillmore Street in San Francisco.
