The best natural anti-ageing creams


Liz @JdeV Prestwick store

As far as I’m concerned, the absolute last thing you should be applying to ageing skin is chemical-filled skincare products, and yet that’s exactly what so many of us do! As we age, our skin often becomes thinner, more sensitive and more delicate, so these harsh chemicals can cause even more damage than on younger skin.

Trying to find an anti-ageing cream that’s organic, vegan, cruelty free and free from harsh chemicals can be tricky, particularly because this industry is dominated by popular high street and high end brands.

But giving up on chemicals certainly doesn’t mean giving up on luxury or quality! I’ve waded through the mountains of anti-ageing creams out there to bring you only the most natural, most effective and most ethical products!

Green People Vita Min Fix 24-hour Cream

Green People are often seen as the champions of organic skincare, and they’re certainly incredibly popular here at Jan de Vries!

As the name suggests, this 24-hour cream is packed full of vitamins and minerals which help to maintain skin health as we age. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants, which can help to repair and prevent damage caused by pollution, UV rays and chemical skincare products.

Its key ingredients include evening primrose, avocado, green tea, jojoba, and baicalin, which is clinically proven to protect and extend cell life – great news for your ageing skin cells!

This light and smooth cream is perfect for those of you with extra sensitive skin. It boasts 89% certified organic ingredients, and it’s also vegan and cruelty free.

Green People Vita Min Fix price: £16.50 50ml

Pacifica Dreamy Youth Day & Night Natural Face Cream

Everything about Pacifica feels youthful and fresh. Their ethos and many of their products are inspired by the travels of its founder, Brook Harvey-Taylor – from the wilds of India to the beauty of the Pacific Islands.

It’s no surprise, then, that Pacifica are making an appearance on my list. Their Dreamy Youth Day & Night Natural Face Cream is packed full of nature’s best anti-ageing ingredients, from stem cell extracts to grape seed oil, kelp and Damascus rose. This exclusive ‘Fleuracell Complex’ helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, support collagen production, moisturise and improve general skin condition.

It feels really lightweight on the skin and has a lovely delicate fragrance. Like all Pacifica’s products, it’s also 100% vegan and cruelty free.

Perfect for both day and night!

Dr Hauschka Regenerating Day Cream

From their sleek, sophisticated packaging to their choice of high quality ingredients, Dr Hauschka know what they’re doing when it comes to luxury natural skincare.

For those who want a bit of extra luxury, I would definitely recommend Dr Hauschka’s Regenerating Day Cream. Using a range of nourishing ingredients like red clover, acerola, raspberry seed oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and avocado oil, this cream helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, promote the skin’s natural renewal process and leave skin hydrated and replenished.

This cream is rich and deeply hydrating without feeling greasy or heavy, making it a great choice for people with dry or very dry skin.

This luxurious cream is 100% organic, natural and cruelty free. It does contain beeswax, however, so can’t be classed as vegan.

Dr Hauschka Regenerating Day Cream price: £55.00 40ml

Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Day Cream

As one of the more well-known brands on the list, you might have heard of Weleda already.

Their revitalising day cream harnesses and enhances the skin’s natural renewal process, helping to build strong, healthy skin. It’s rich in plant oils and extracts, including macadamia oil, cocoa butter, and of course, evening primrose oil, which hydrate the skin and help prepare it for the day to come.

This natural day cream absorbs quickly to leave skin soft and hydrated, without any stickiness or greasiness. It's 100% vegan and cruelty free too!

Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Day Cream price: £25.95 30ml
