Im convinced that I dont want too much harsh chemicals on my face, so im looking for natural acne medication. Like Burts Bees or Say Yes To Carrots. I would like to ask which brand is most effective?

Oatmeal Mask: Say yes to oats! Your favorite morning bowl of oats also doubles as your weekly facial mask or daily light scrub. Oats and milk or a great combo for acne. Reduces inflmation and calms the skin down. I have my clients blend 2 cups dry oats. Store in freezer. When needed Mix equal parts oats and milk, buttermilk, or yogurt. Let rest on face 15 to 20 min. Remove gently with cool wet towel. Then apply a good dose of Moisturiser your face should feel wet. I have my clients use Skinwater from Biokorium. Harsh chemicals can cause more acne if not used properly.

Aveeno is pretty good brand to use on your face. It's gentle, non comodegenic, and mostly organic.
I have used Queen Helene's Mud Mask and that also helps.
Another at home remedy suggestion is a facial mask mixture of honey and crushed non-coated aspirin. My sis uses this as her regimen daily and she says it helps her acne and it also helps close her pores which prevents acne. I have seen her use it for the last year and the results have been very impressive.
Hope that helps!

I don't blame you on the harsh chemicals front. Personally, I'm not in favor of them though for more personal reasons. I've got extremely sensitive skin, and eczema, and I find some of the more common ingredients in those products made to handle acne-prone skin too harsh on my skin (especially anything with salycilic acid).
I've started using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and a light oil-free moisturizer day and night. During the day I use Eucerin Daily Moisturizer with SPF and at night I use CereVe Nighttime Moisturizer. I tried Bare Minerals products, and they work great on my skin too. Any natural moisturizer will work too (though steer clear of the heavier oils as they'll just work against you). Oddly enough, keeping your skin moisturized when you have acne is one of the most important things you can do.
I use a clay-based mask once a week to help keep my skin clear. I also use a scrub once a week or so as well to help clear away any dead skin.
If I've got any stubborn zits, I use a more gentle cream like Zapzyt. That's my new favorite actually. There are some essential oils that work fairly well if you're determined to go au naturale. Try things with either lavender oil or tea tree oil in them.
