by nandini.s + india sutra 06 Mar 2021

Is finding the right natural skincare brands in India one of your many skin problems? Say no more. Here’s the ultimate guide to natural skincare that your skin will love you for. 

It is the dream (read as fantasy) of every woman to have perfect flawless skin. is the world’s first brand reader, a platform that checks any personal care brand you use to see if it is really that clean. All you need to do is type the brand name and hit bop.. that’s it. 

A clean or dirty score of the brand you use will be shown with details on the kind of ingredients it carries

For instance, if you are curious about seeing Skincare brand EX… all you need to do is type brand Ex  (name), and voila the results will show. Most skincare products available in our markets are loaded with harmful toxins such as Parabens, Formaldehyde releases, Octinoxates, Phthalates, Triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) to name a few. These ingredients help improve texture,  long life, application, absorption, fragrance but in return can cause cancer, endocrine damage, nerve toxicology, skin irritation and many more health issues.  If you are curious to learn more about some of these dirty ingredients open this link. 

Natural skincare products are those that are made from naturally derived ingredients  And though I am an advocate for most things natural, handmade, and in small batches, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all-natural is good. There are many dirty natural derived ingredients in skincare too. Palm oil found in most personal care products is a cheap oil responsible for more and more deforestation world over, Petroleum Jelly is a dirty by-product of petroleum used in skin care, Mica a natural mineral used in tanning products and make up for its shimmer can come unethically from mines that use child labor for extraction. At this information is given easily by simply bopping the brand you use or wish to buy. It is important for you as a conscious consumer to know better in order to choose better.

In the modern beauty industry, natural skincare brands are trending. As people are becoming more educated on the negative effects of both human and eco toxins, users are starting to look for options that are safer and healthier.

It seems like a long, tiring process to look for natural skincare brands that are authentic and effective. Follow these steps to know how you can choose a natural skincare brand without losing your mind:

1. Research

As cliche as it sounds, research is always the best way to find a good skincare brand. It is a tedious and tiresome process. Now you can Bop!! 

On Zoobop all you need to do is type the name of the brand you use and BOP. You will get all the relevant information about that brand with their clean or dirty score in no time. In case of disappointments and dirty scores, Zoobop recommends better alternatives to that brand. How great is that!

2. Read the claims

How do you know if the claims of a brand are just... fair or even true? Look for regulations and certifications of such claims before you decide to invest in a brand. Better safe than sorry, am I right?

Zoobop checks all the information for your brand to help you escape rubbish greenwashing and make safer and cleaner choices. 

3. Check the label

Expiry dates, disclaimers, side effects, and of course, ingredients. Make sure you are familiar with all of these beforehand. 

Many dirty ingredients and why these should be avoided are listed on

A simple tap on the ingredients of your brand will show you if these are dirty or clean. 

4. Complete Ingredient list

Look for complete ingredient labeling. Dishonest brands will only list key ingredients. Zoobop will immediately tell you if your brand is honest or not. 

Complete Ingredient labeling is not required in India and many brands get away with not being honest with their users. 

Anything that you do not want in your food, you do not want on your skin either. Stay away from unnecessary fragrances and silicones that do more harm than good. Good skincare comes from the best of ingredients, but not just any type of ingredients. Clean and pollutant-free are what you want to aim for with your skincare.

5. Check which preservatives are being used

Preservatives in skincare products protect the active ingredients (antioxidants, vitamins, etc.) from becoming inactive as they age. This prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi in products like lotions, gels, and creams. Some preservatives have become notorious over the years. Parabens, Formaldehyde releases, Methylchloroisothiazolinone to name a few are unfortunately very common place and are linked to serious health issues. 

The dirty dozen and their cousins is an interesting blog link here, that gives you more information about this. 

What are the better ingredients for skincare products?

As consumers, we are bombarded with information when it comes to cosmetics, skincare products, and the ingredients they contain. Here is a list of some ingredients you may want to look out for in your skincare:

  • Aloe Vera: An extract from the Aloe barbadensis plant, known for its soothing and moisturizing properties.
  • Collagen: A fibrous protein that gives your skin elasticity, strength, and structure. Additionally, this water-binding agent offers a long-lasting hydration effect on the skin due to its ability to lock in moisture. Present in almost all animals, it can be found in high levels in products like bone broth.
  • Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a fat-soluble compound that is one of the most beneficial nutrients for maintaining youthful-looking skin. It is a potent antioxidant and protects skin effectively against environmental damage caused by free radicals.
  • Green Tea:  Green tea is packed with incredible benefits for the skin, including the ability to help soothe and improve the appearance of sun damage. 
  • Vitamin C: This vitamin helps tone your skin and reduces signs of aging. It also lightens dark spots, prevents acne, and reduces inflammation.
  • Witch hazel: It is an excellent ingredient that reduces oil build-up and also hydrates your skin. 
  • Moringa - has vitamin E that has anti-inflammatory properties. It also has vitamin A, which builds collagen, and vitamin C which fights aging. 
  • Apricot oil -  is rich in Vitamin A and E and deeply nourishes damaged, rough or chapped skin.

 Coconut oil: cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil suppresses some of the body's natural inflammatory agents while making the skin a better barrier.   

Again quality over quantity is always good. And look out for single hero ingredients over a bunch of ingredients on a bottle.
