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
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.
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.

Dr Hauschka Regenerating Day Cream
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.

Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Day Cream
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.
