Whether used as a hand wash or facial cleanser, this is a gentle, water-soluble option that also removes makeup. It is truly fragrance-free and suitable for those with sensitive skin that’s slightly dry or oily. This is worth trying as a facial cleanser if you’re dealing with rosacea, which is a big part of why it’s rated a Best Product.

Mild, moisturizing and fragrance free, this lush liquid soap gently cleanses hands and face without over-drying. Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Echinacea soothe and soften. Great for use on sensitive skin. Paraben free.

Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Gel (Aloe Vera), Sodium Myreth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Cocamide Mea, Glycol Stearate, Vegetable Glycerin, Chamomilla Recutita Extract (Chamomile), Camellia Oleifera Extract (Green Tea), Echinacea Angustifolia Extract (Echinacea), Rosa Canina Extract (Rosehips), Glycereth 2 Cocoate, Benzoic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate

It may not come as a surprise to those who have read previous editions of this book to learn that the Jason Natural line of products, which presents itself as a "green," environmentally friendly alternative skin-care line in health food stores (its primary distribution point), also includes in its products a majority of ingredients that are decidedly unnatural. Yes, many natural ingredients are included in these products, but Jason Natural is not practicing what they preach by "giving consumers effective, environmentally friendly alternatives to mass-produced, synthetic chemical products." As far as mass-produced goes, Jason Natural fills the bill. The product line has been available since 1959, and is distributed worldwide.

Owner Hain Celestial plans to increase the line's presence by entering new retail outlets, meaning that this isn't a batch of products cooked up in a home-style manner and made fresh to order. And the company uses plenty of synthetic ingredients, including preservatives, thickeners, slip agents, and film-forming agents. These aren't bad for skin; in fact, they're essential to create products people will actually want to use—but claiming they're all natural or purer than other brands is false. Natural or otherwise, many of these products are not only outstanding options to consider, but also exceptional values. Of particular interest are the antioxidant-rich Sunbrellas sunscreens, some water-soluble cleansers, and a few state-of-the-art moisturizers.

Jason's penchant for natural means that several products are problematic due to the inclusion of essential oils (which are really unessential because they cause irritation and often sun sensitivity or cell death), along with other ingredients that, while natural, are not helpful for skin. The company claims that everything they put into their products is from the earth, and that's true. But if you think about it, where else would the ingredients come from? Mars? Every cosmetics company is using ingredients from the earth, so just because Jason Natural outfits theirs with a selection of plants doesn't mean they're inherently better (and in some instances, the plants are even a detriment). Still, there are enough high points in this line to make it worth considering. This line is huge, however, so be prepared to zero in on what's best or you may be overwhelmed by the choices.

    Stings eyes badly
    • No matter how I washed my face (cloth, splashing water, in the shower), this product stung my eyes and would continue to do so for about 5 mins afterwards. My daughter had the same issue so I know it wasn't me. Here in Canada, it is about $14 and the store didn't accept returns so I contacted the company; they sent coupons totalling $6. They did send a 4 page questionnaire for me to fill out though. So I guess they care in some regard (just not enough to refund lol) It did clean well though
