Moisturizing is an important part of any skincare routine. After Cleansing, the skin becomes clean, oil free and dry, most of the times. Failing to moisturize can lead to various skin concerns such as acne due to excess sebum production, early signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and so on. So it is highly highly essential that you moisturize your skin post cleansing, whatever your skin type may be. You should pick moisturizers in accordance to your skin type such as oily skin types should go for gel, water based ones, dry skin types can go for cream or oil based ones and normal skin types can go for either of them. Here I have listed the Top 10 Best Chemical Free Moisturizer in India. Let’s get started.

Most Aloe vera Gels I’ve come across have that thick sitting on top of the skin feel, but this one is completely different. This gel is more on the thinner side and just vanishes into the skin immediately. It instantly hydrates the skin and makes it smooth. It does not make skin stretchy too. Because this tub not only contains Organic Aloevera, it has Orange Extract, Organic Natural Glycerin, Organic Orange and Cinnamon Oil, All of which has excellent hydrating properties. It is suitable for all skin types and continuous usage softens and plumps up skin.
