Our selection of natural skin toners contains a variety of powerful and proven high-quality ingredients to help you get the skin you're after. A toner has many functions, and is more than just a way to get cleaner skin. It consists of some pretty powerful components that help adjust pH, close pores, increase cell turnover, nourish and protect.

But what does each ingredient in a toner actually do?

Acetic Acid
Also known more commonly simply as vinegar. It acts as an antibacterial as well as an anti-fungal while keeping skin's pH adjusted.

Use a toner with acetic acid if you have normal skin.

Soy Extract

A toner with soy extract is best for combination and ageing skin.

Bilberries
Related to blueberries & cranberries, these have similar antioxidant benefits to help guard against free radicals. This fruit is also high in vitamins and has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of illnesses when eaten.
