5 Best Vegan and Natural skincare products for acne-prone skin

Our skin. It holds us together. It is our protector. It hydrates us and is our own personal thermostat. Looking after our skin is often a top priority. But even with the best lifestyle most of us have experienced spots and blemishes, and many of us have had a run-in with acne. Acne is a common skin condition in which skin pores become blocked. This results in pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and inflamed skin. 

Having pronounced skin issues can be a pretty hard place to be in. It can be a daily grind of trying new treatments, lotions, and potions hoping for a miracle fix. The desire to hide behind a mask avoiding or dreading interactions with others. Living with the fear that acne will always be an unwelcome guest. 

At Clean Clean, we get it. We get the thunderclouds that bad skin can bring, but we know the sun always returns. To help take the grind out of searching, we have compiled 5 of the best vegan and natural skincare products for acne-prone skin. Each product is animal friendly and overflowing with nature’s goodness, causing no harm to our planet or each other.

Acne Defence Face Wash

Pacifica’s powerful vegan face wash contains the key ingredient Salicylic acid. Commonly derived from willow bark, salicylic acid penetrates pores, flushing out impurities, reducing troublesome breakouts.

To combat combination skin, Pacifica has fused the anti-inflammatory properties of sage; the soothing hydrating nature of aloe with the zingy refreshment of mint to create Acne Defence Face Wash, a skin-friendly and environmentally friendly treat.  

This company focuses on producing cruelty-free beauty products using natural ingredients. They are mindful of their impact on the environment and each other. 


Osea – Ocean Cleanser

Passionate about challenging mainstream skincare, often full of toxic and health-damaging ingredients, Follain has created a toxin-free cleanser. 

With ingredients not only inspired by the cleansing salty ocean but derived from it. Follain has cultivated the use of the active ingredient organic algae. Algae produce incredible antioxidants that aid the reduction of oxidative stress, a possible factor in acne-prone skin. Through deep detoxing of the skin, algae reduce inflammation while jojoba seed oil repairs the skin’s natural barrier. 

 Follain’s Osea- Ocean cleanser is a display of the ability to balance nature’s power and sensitivity to problem skin. 


Acne Control Clarifying Body Spray

PETA approved and cruelty-free, Murad has created a vegan treatment to tackle acne prone problem skin on your body.  

To reduce and prevent ‘backne’ breakouts, a common area for acne to occur, they have enlisted Salicylic acid as a key ingredient, deeply cleansing pores. The added combination of glycolic acid gently encourages the shedding of old skin cells leaving skin rejuvenated.

To create balance within the skin, Murad has blended extract from the sacred blue lotus into their Ance Control Clarifying Body Spray. This ancient extract, used for centuries, soothes inflamed acne-prone skin. It provides a toxin-free relief and reduces the redness that often occurs with acne.

Clean Clean’s hopes and dreams are to see you confident in your skin, unafraid to be who you truly are. We believe that through a clean balanced diet, regular exercise, and reducing stress, your skin and whole being can benefit.
