What are Organic Beauty Products?
Organic products are all the rave these days. Once left forgotten and
ignored in the innermost corners of store shelves and health food
stores, these products are now in the spotlight and taking center
stage because of the newly found benefits of going organic.
course, big cosmetics companies are never far behind when it comes to
making profit and they are fast moving in on the organic, all-natural
bandwagon. Organic sales have exceeded the $5 billion mark with
cosmetics companies always on the lookout for ways to increase their
sales on the health-conscious people. Now, the lines of beauty
products labeled as organic number in the thousands--both in beauty
stores and online shops. HOWEVER ARE THEY REALLY
the future of organic products turning brighter every year and as more
products are introduced with the term “organic or all-natural” stamped
in their labels, people are getting confused.
What does an
organic beauty product mean? The problem stemmed from the fact
that although cosmetics companies claim that they have all-natural
organic ingredients in their products (like fruits, plant extracts and
oils), they mix it with synthetic preservatives. But companies
contend that they need these preservatives to extend the shelf life of
their products, otherwise, bacteria would grow in the product as it
sits on the shelf.

products will never be completed as long as competing companies
continue to question the validity of each other’s claim. And although
there are laws that define the percentage of organic ingredients as
opposed synthetic ingredients, the debate continues to rage on.
So What Can I Do About It?
consumer must also read the ingredients on the labels. You have to do
a little more research when the label states “made with organic
ingredients” and the like. Compare the number of organic ingredients
with the synthetic preservatives. And always remember that when we
say organic, we mean the old traditional way of farming and breeding
without the use of synthetic chemicals or artificial fertilizers.
Some cosmetics companies will include in the back labels how and where
they got their ingredients. If the farm is known to be an organic
producer, then the product you’re buying will be organic. If the
labels include the percentage of organic ingredients and synthetic
ingredients, then the job should be much easier.
All Natural Vs. Organic
Some companies have found a twist in the organic act. The US
Department of Agriculture states that a minimum of 70% of the
ingredients used to manufacture the product should be of a certified
organic origin before they can label it as organic. When they started
implementing and amending the sale of organic beauty products, some
companies were not able to comply with the minimum requirements.
These companies have since labeled their beauty products as
"all-natural." And this has led to an even more confused consumer.
a small piece of reminder for you guys: “all-natural” and “organic”
beauty products are NOT interchangeable so do not be confused with the
difference. The key word here is “organic” and only products with the
“organic” label passed the USDA organic standards.
is so easy to hype a product. And that’s exactly what all cosmetics
companies do. All of them want to entice health-conscious buyers to
purchase their products. But with a little awareness, you will be
able to choose the right organic beauty product.
