The Case for Organic Cosmetics
The market for Cosmetics and Beauty industry grows by five percent every year. There is ever increasing demand for skin care and beauty products due to increasing population, awareness, and desire. The industry cannot meet this demand by using only natural elements. Therefore, synthetic chemicals that simulate the effects of naturally occurring substances are extensively used in making cosmetics, beauty, and skincare products. These are produced in mass, cost less, and have a longer shelf life, a win-win for the manufacturer! The extensive use of synthetic chemicals in food, skincare, and the environment surrounding us is known to increase the risk of ill health.
Features of Organic Cosmetics.
Organic cosmetic products use naturally occurring substances and gentle preservatives. These provide natural effects and help you take good care of your skin and hair in the most natural form.
How to Spot Organic Cosmetics.
It is a common belief to accept a product as “natural” or “organic” because the front label reads “all-natural,” or the company has the word “organic” in its name.
We suggest reading the entire product label carefully. More information on product labels are here, and here. You will be surprised how quickly you can spot ingredients, preservatives, and sourcing of the ingredients, just by reading the entire label. Reading the product label takes less than a minute and worth it. Make an effort.
Organic cosmetics generally use natural oils, butter, fragrances, and food-grade preservatives. Organic ingredients are marked with asterisks (*) symbol and explained as “Organic” or “USDA Certified Organic” at the end of the ingredients section. The products that have a single ingredient may carry a “Certified Organic,” “USDA Certified Organic,” or similar certification. Finally, the website of the manufacturer has additional information on their products, ingredients, sourcing methods.
Organic Cosmetic companies may use Cruelty-Free, or No Animal Testing policy, Vegan contents, ethical sourcing of their materials, and avoid harsh chemicals in their products.
Your Contribution to Nature.
When you purchase organic cosmetic products, you contribute to preserving natural cultivation, ethical farming, and responsible sourcing. As the demand for organic products grows, such contributions have a significant impact on conserving nature. There is nothing better than leaving beautiful earth for our generations!
Organic living is more than eating something that is labeled “organic” in some way. Adapting to a natural lifestyle and its principles helps you live better and conserve nature. Organic cosmetics reduce harmful impact on you and the environment by using naturally occurring substances and preservatives.
