Natural And Organic Skin Care Products Are Healthier For Your Skin.

Mar 27, 2008
The word organic has become popular these days, consumers are willing to pay more for honest and organic skin care products. And they demand these natural products from their manufacturers. Organic means "produced and involving production without the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or synthetic chemicals" You need to be sure that your Organic skin care products are safe for your skin and especially when you use it on your face, because our skin is the first line of defence for diseases and illness.

Our face is always exposed to the elements and to other people, it is one of the most sensitive parts of our body. Organic skin care products bring us many benefits and can be used for our face and for other parts of our body.

Organic Skin Care Products, What Does It Mean

You would think that the term organic should guarantee that the product does not contain any substances or elements that can harm us or the environment. That is only true when the term "Certified Organic" is used. You need to look for products with the logo of a certifying body on the label, this is the only way you can guarantee the organic authenticity and integrity of every ingredient in the product. These products where manufactured without the inclusion of harmful substances and chemicals. All of the ingredients are planted, grown and harvested in an organic way, without any harmful fertilizers, pest control products and other harmful substances.

We reduce the risk of harming the environment by using organic skin care products because the way of farming and processing is friendly for all living things around the growing area and because of that it can be called environmental friendly. This is one of the great benefits of all organic products, and not only of organic skin care products. Everything that is organically grown and manufactured has this advantage. Purchasing organic products also help the farmers in sustaining the environment and soil and hereby earning a descent living from organic farming. These products can then truly be called a natural product.

How To Choose Organic Skin Care Products

If cosmetic products call them self organic but don't have a certified organic label on the product it probably is not fully organic at all. These manufacturers most of the time use some organic ingredients but where not able to produce their products without chemicals. It would be logical if these kind of products where required to be labeled as non organic because it is misleading for many people. But without the "Certified Organic" label, the organic claim means nothing, it cannot be verified and most likely it is a complete lie made up by the marketing people.

Personal care manufacturers that meet the standards for the USDA Organic label can use it on their packaging. A hundred percent organic product needs to be hundred percent. A product labeled simply "organic" must be at least 95 percent organic. products labeled "made with organic" must be made with at least 70 percent organic ingredients. And products that have organic ingredients may not call itself an organic product but it may list the organic ingredients on the back or side of the package. So, you need to watch the labels if you want to be sure that you are going to buy organic skin care products.
