When you go to the store in search for organic beauty or baby care it can be confusing on what is truly “natural”.
The first thing you should know is there is a huge difference between organic and certified organic. Without the accreditation, products may just contain one or two organic ingredients whilst comprising of chemicals or synthetics. Having this certification by the ACO means that 95% of the products content is organic and the 5% natural.
Considering 70% of what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body and blood stream why wouldn’t you want to put on anything but certified organic ingredients. It is proven that ingredients such as chamomile, rose-hip, honey and flaxseed oil harvest great benefits to the body, do you even know what the actual ingredients are on that back of your face cream?
Certified organic products are healthier for you children and the environment. Toxic chemicals from non-organic products eventually end up in rivers and thus damaging wildlife.
You should not put anything on your skin that you couldn’t eat. So next time when you go into a shop make sure it is certified organic.
