  1. The good thing about herbal beauty products is that they have no preservatives, are eco friendly and fairly versatile. Herbal facial cleansers mixed with water or honey also act as good facial masks.. Natural facial cleansing grains made of white clay, oatmeal, corn meal and tapioca with a combination of herbs act as good exfoliates. Facial scrubs consisting of coconut, fruits, almonds, plant extracts replace all the harsh chemicals and cater to individual needs and skin type.
