4 Must-Have Plant-Based Ingredients for Daily Skincare Routines

Plant-based ingredients are powerful, which is particularly noticeable when a brand features them in skin, hair, and body care products. Products with plant-based ingredients nourish your skin or hair, helping them feel moisturized, invigorated, soothed, and protected. They support body care goals and make you want to uncover other Mother Nature-approved formulas. As you explore various body washes, shampoos, sunscreens, lotions, and other products, keep your eyes peeled for these four potent plant-based powerhouses.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a hydrating ingredient that’s great for your skin and hair. You can find it in shampoo, body wash, lotion, and other products. Aloe vera gel is a clean ingredient—it comes straight from the plant! So, when you see it among the top ingredients in a skincare product, you know it will effectively nourish your skin alongside other plant-based ingredients. Look for lotion, facial tinted sunscreen, shampoo, and body wash products with aloe vera.

Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil is a potent ingredient, even in small amounts. It lends a refreshing aroma to skin, hair, and body care products, making it an enjoyable addition to showers, bedtime routines, and even regular handwashing. Eucalyptus trees are native to Australia, where they are primarily grown and serve as a leading food source for koalas. When you’re looking for a revitalizing skincare product with eucalyptus oil, choose one like a Eucalyptus Body Wash & Bubble Bath or a hand soap with sustainably sourced eucalyptus oil to ensure both you and the environment can continue to benefit from the plant.


Oat is a fantastic plant-based ingredient in skincare products—and one you’ll always recognize as such. It’s gentle, nourishing, and mild enough for even baby products. That’s not to say that you don’t also benefit from oat. Try it in your skin, hair, and body care routines, and you’ll discover that this ingredient makes a big difference in how your skin looks and feels. You can find this soothing ingredient in lotion, body wash, and some sensitive facial creams to help your skin feel soft and smooth. Our Moisturizing Oat & Calendula Body Lotion is a fast-absorbing moisturizer leaves skin soft, soothed and hydrated. 

Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is an ingredient in Hawaii-compliant sun care products that physically block UV rays. It’s a fantastic addition to skincare products like zinc sunscreen. Zinc oxide is a white mineral and can leave a white cast, so you might reach for a facial tinted sunscreen with the ingredient. The protective ingredient has also been known to soothe the skin. Whether it’s in a regular zinc sunscreen or a tinted face cream, zinc belongs in your daily routine.

If you want to build a skincare routine featuring powerful, plant-based ingredients, look for any of these four ingredients. They’re fantastic additions to any skin, hair, or body care product, including facial tinted sunscreen, sunscreen lotion, body wash, shampoo, daily lotion, and even hand soap. Plant-based ingredients are safe, gentle, and effective, so look for a brand harnessing the power of Mother Nature to find what you need for an excellent head-to-toe routine.
