Welcome back, babes! It’s important to take care of our skin to not only look good but also feel good. But, can we just address the fact that buying skin care these days is pretty much like dating? We fall in love with everything it says it will do, just for it to turn out sub-par and be put on the back burner for emergencies.
With so many options out there, it can be tough to know which ones are actually good for your skin and which ones are actually toxic under all of the lies. We are finally getting to the point where consumers are recognizing the benefits of American-made skincare products, along with using superior natural ingredients and environmentally friendly packaging.
The products below are made with natural ingredients and are cruelty-free, so you can feel good about using them. From cleansers to toners to moisturizers and serums, we’ve got you covered for all your skincare needs. Let’s dive into our top picks for the best American-made skincare products:
15 Best American-Made Skin Care Products
RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up Concealer
We’re starting off with the brand designed by well-known make-up artist, Rose Marie Swift. She hit the scene with her all-natural makeup line and grew her product line by creating minimal-ingredient skincare products formulated with raw, organic, and natural ingredients.
This RMS Beauty concealer is a multitasking powerhouse that’ll even out your skin tone and hide any pesky imperfections. Trust us, it’s the real deal – made in the USA with natural, organic ingredients like coconut oil, beeswax, and jojoba oil.
Also available at Nordstrom, Amazon, and Sephora.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Serum
Tata Harper is a renowned all-American natural cosmetics company. If you want smoother, younger-looking skin, the Resurfacing Serum is your best bet. It contains natural AHAs, BHAs, and enzymes that gently exfoliate the skin, revealing a brighter, smoother, and more radiant complexion. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As well as improve the skin’s elasticity, and promote a more even skin tone.
Botox in a bottle, anyone?
Shop at Nordstrom, Sephora, and Amazon.
Biossance Squaline + Vitamin C Rose Oil
With over 2,000 raving reviews from all ages, this one has piqued our interest. Seriously, it is like a whole new world of radiant skin with this vitamin C oil that delivers a triple threat of benefits. Squalane locks in moisture, providing instant hydration and protection against moisture loss. The Damascus rose petal extract soothes and calms, leaving behind a soft, natural scent. With improved tone and texture, boosted firmness, and suppleness, your skin will radiate a healthy glow.
And, don’t worry – 1 oz. will last you a lot longer than you think, one drop goes a loooong way. There are no parabens or synthetic fragrances, and everything is non-toxic, including the packaging!
RMS Luminizer X Quad
We aren’t lying when we say that opening this palette looks like how cartoon characters open a treasure chest. This illuminating beauty features four unique cream luminizers that are ONLY available in this set. Each shade has a specific purpose. From the ultra-sheer highlight that provides a light-reflective glow to the subtle, radiant copper of Luminizer Nude. Champagne Rosé is a warm blush champagne that adds a touch of warmth to the skin. While Champagne Fizz is a glam opalescent shimmer that creates a stunning, eye-catching effect.
Just like we mentioned with the brand’s “Un” Cover-Up Concealer, RMS Beauty has high-quality beauty products with high standards, and that is EVERYTHING we want.
Available at Credo Beauty, Amazon, and Revolve.
Hey Hanni Splash Salve
Why there aren’t more of these products is a mystery to us. As busy women in this crazy world, cutting corners to save a little time is a major plus when picking skincare products. We might have a little trauma from the 5-in-1 products that promised to take care of all our problems in 1 bottle. But NOW we can ask the early 2000’s to take their crap back as we level-up our skincare game.
Introduce yourself to a product that won’t have you hopping around in your towel trying to lotion up your whole body. This conditioning salve is like a spa treatment in your shower! Rub it right onto your wet skin and dry off as normal. The eco-friendly jar is even made of 100% recyclable aluminum that you can easily toss with your other recyclables. Don’t worry about dents, they won’t affect the product’s performance.
Also at Sephora.
OSEA Malibu Ocean Cleanser
OSEA is a skincare brand that focuses on using natural and organic ingredients to create high-quality products that are safe for the skin and the environment. Their products are made in California and are free from harmful chemicals, including parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. This best-seller is pretty freakin’ close to a refreshing splash of the ocean on your face.
We just have to love a cleanser that is strong enough to wash away our sins of the day. This award-winning cleanser is perfect for all skin types, whether you’re dry, oily, or just downright filthy. It’s packed with natural ingredients like algae extract and jojoba oil, which all work together to remove dirt and impurities while also keeping your skin hydrated. And guess what? It’s 100% vegan and cruelty-free!

Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Invisible Pores Mask
If natural beauty were to come in a glass jar… this would be it. A gentle clarifying mask that is filled to the brim with the perfect blend of ingredients packed with natural BHAs from white willow bark, fruit enzymes, aloe, and blue tansy essential oil.
White willow bark, a natural source of beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), helps clarify your skin. While papaya and pineapple enzymes gently exfoliate, leaving your skin smooth and refined.
Aloe and blue tan oil not only give the mask a cool blue hue. But, they also work together to help soothe the appearance of redness and irritation.
Also available at Sephora, Walmart, and Amazon.
Botanika Life Ultra Relief Pain Rub
If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably experienced muscle soreness after a night out with friends or a tough workout. That’s where this pain rub comes in. This heaven-sent, super-concentrated formula can help reduce muscle and joint discomfort.
It contains clinically proven active ingredients like lidocaine and menthol, which deeply penetrate your skin to provide a cooling and soothing sensation. For the magic touch of healing power, the rub is blended with 1500mg of organically grown Full Spectrum CBD, which will definitely take your mind off being sore.
Of course, it is all-natural, clean, and safe, and it is free from gluten, sulfate, paraben, and GMOs. The rub is vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. OH, and we can’t forget to tell you that it comes with a signature chrome spatula for easy and mess-free application as well. LOVE!!

The gel moisturizer is perfect for all skin types and delivers an instant burst of hydration that lasts all night. And, say goodbye to sticky residue and hello to a nourished and healthy complexion. The secret is in its natural and organic ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, protein peptides, licorice root, and vitamin C. It is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and proudly made in the USA.
Unlike other brands that rely on overhyped “miracle ingredients,” this brand is all about honesty and transparency in skincare. They have done extensive research to identify eight key ingredients that provide the majority of benefits for the skin – their “Eight Saints.”
They are committed to using natural and effective skincare solutions and want to provide you with clear and truthful information about the world of beauty. Just like we talked about in our Cymbiotika Review, this industry can be shady AF – unlike Cymbiotika and Eight Saints!!)

Get ready to wake up to some seriously smooth and clarified skin, babes! This Smooth AF Tonic from Fourth Ray is the ultimate resurfacing tonic that’ll leave your skin looking and feeling oh-so-soft and radiant like the fourth of July (cue Jennifer Coolidge).

It is said that this skin mist is like someone kidnapped J.Lo and bottled her glow in a bottle. The shocking reviews of this product say that it is the perfect finishing step to your beauty routine. You will get an immediate pop of luminous hydration that will make it look like you finally got that full 8 hours of sleep.
With over 20% botanical oils and humectants, your skin will be left feeling dewy and revitalized. The secret to its powerful hydration lies in the Okinawa red algae and hyaluronic acid complex, which acts as a moisture magnet, delivering efficient hydration to your skin.
But that’s not all chickas – this mist is also infused with the hadasei-3 anti-aging complex, a trinity of Japanese superfoods that work together to restore youthful radiance. Green tea, rice, and algae combine to create a powerful anti-aging formula that will leave your skin looking and feeling its best.
Shop at Sephora.
RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol
Ladies, it is time for you to experience an ultimate skin-renewing anti-aging moisturizer. This gem deeply nourishes and revitalizes dehydrated skin, leaving you with a firmer, more radiant complexion. The advanced formula is specifically designed to target all signs of aging, while the powerful retinol ingredient works to visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles. The premium, creamy texture provides intense hydration, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.

Herbivore Prism Exfoliating Glow Facial
Immerse yourself in a radiant facial treatment that uses a blend of natural AHAs like Glycolic, Lactic, Tartaric, and Malic acids to gently exfoliate and soften your skin. This treatment also includes a clarifying BHA from Willow Bark extract to help cleanse your pores, while a hydrating gel made of Aloe Vera and Rosewater works to replenish your skin’s moisture levels. This baby is packed with a rainbow of natural fruit acids and botanical extracts, it’s like a strong cocktail for your face.
Prism contains fruit acids that serve a dual purpose of clearing up your complexion and removing dead skin cells that can clog pores and prevent your skin from absorbing moisture and nutrients. Consistent use of gentle exfoliants is important for optimal skin health. Without it, skincare products may not penetrate the skin effectively, making it feel like they are ineffective.
Shop on Amazon, Dermstore, and Sephora.
Henné Luxury Hand Cream
Available in Citrus and Floral scents.
Long gone are the days when we would slather Bath and Body Works lotion all over our bodies, not knowing that it did more harm than good. What is the point of having soft skin when it is just left greasy and oily from sh*t products? Yea…. none.
We love to indulge in the luxurious experience of a hand cream that defies all expectations. The creamy texture of the Henné Luxury Hand Cream will caress your skin with a delicate touch, leaving it nourished and hydrated without any unwanted greasiness.
Savor the moment as you apply it to your hands, and feel the magical transformation as it seeps in, reviving your skin with a radiant glow. And, prepare yourself, the ingredients in this cream are *chefs kiss*. Filled with Argan oil, Shea butter, Jojoba oil, and Avocado oil, it will have your palms, fingers, cuticles, and nails… looking like you just left the salon, all day, every day! (Did you know that with healthy, moisturized cuticles, your nail polish applies better and stays fresh longer?)

A salad for a facial? That’s right! This cleanser is bursting with phytonutrients that are designed to cleanse your skin of dirt, impurities, and even makeup.
