WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC SKIN CARE?
How many personal care products do you use every day? Studies show that the average woman applies 12 products a day, containing a total of around 168 different ingredients. You may regularly use cleansers, toners, moisturizers, eye creams, lip balms, night-repair treatments, anti-aging serums, exfoliates, body lotions, hand creams, and many more.
Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? It's also the thinnest. Only 1/10th of an inch separates you from all the toxins in your immediate environment.
Shouldn’t you ensure that what you apply is nourishing, instead of toxic?
NUTRITION AND HEALTH BENEFITS
Many people turn to organic alternatives for their food. Is it any wonder that organic skin care products are increasing in popularity as well?
It's hardly a secret that plant foods nourish your body. Skin care products derived from these plant foods are a smart and natural way to nourish your skin so you look and feel vibrant, radiant and flawless.
Science has validated that many organic foods offer higher quantities of vitamins and nutrients than their conventional counterparts do. Certainly, organic foods and personal care products reduce the amount of pesticide residues and other toxins you ingest and absorb.
DON'T BE FOOLED BY "NATURAL" LABELS
Here are some facts you need to know about skin care products:
Most Ingredients Are Not Tested for Safety
The vast majority of ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products are not tested for safety.
Except for a few prohibited substances, cosmetic companies can use any raw materials or ingredients in their products that they choose. To make the most profit, they tend to select the cheapest ingredients.
Small Amounts of Chemicals Still Matter
Many people think that the small amounts of ingredients you apply to your skin don’t make much difference. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Studies show that cosmetic ingredients such as the pesticide triclosan, phthalate plasticizers, paraben preservatives, synthetic fragrances and sunscreen ingredients are potential hormone disrupters, and are linked to allergies and asthma.
Products Labeled “Natural” are Just as Good as “Organic”
“Natural” is a marketing term, and means nothing at all. Most cosmetic marketing claims are unregulated. Even products formulated for babies and children are not required to be tested.
Only “organic“ is certified.
WHAT IS USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC SKIN CARE?
An organic seal on a skin care product means that the product has met the requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to be labeled organic. This is the same organization that certifies organic foods, and the requirements are the same for personal care products.
Organic products must be made from mostly agricultural ingredients, and must meet the USDA and National Organic Program (NOP) standards for production, handling, processing, and labeling.
The ingredients must be grown and processed without chemical fertilizers, growth hormones, GMOs, or synthetic pesticides.
Since organic ingredients can become contaminated during formulation, it is important that the manufacturing process be certified as well. Organic certification is the only way you can be sure a company truly complies with organic standards.
To become CERTIFIED ORGANIC is a lengthy process and every step, from the time we received the raw materials to when we released the products, must be documented ensure the organic integrity of the products.
We are very proud to use the words “certified organic” to show you that our products are made with ingredients that are pure, natural and free from hormones, pesticides, artificial fertilizers, GMOs, or other synthetic additives.
