The difference between natural and organic.

The difference between natural and organic.

When talking about organic makeup or also called natural makeup, there is much controversy implying the meaning of both terms. Natural technically means that a product is not altered and that is in its original shape and characteristics. It also refers to a product made with ingredients that come from the natural world. Currently almost any product can be called “natural” himself, without containing any ingredient of this type. There is much permissiveness in the cosmetic industry with this, so be careful when you buy something calling itself “natural”, it can not be at all. One tip, when you read the ingredient list, and you feel that you need a degree in chemistry to understand it, when is endless, be sure that product is not natural. We have similar problems with the term organic in order to recognize it.

An organic product has nothing to do with a product that is certified organic. The last one has been made with organic ingredients that have been subjected to a test by a verification entity, that attests that they are so. When an ingredient is certified organic, you have the security that it has not been obtained by using pesticides, fertilizers, bio engineering, or chemicals and it is safe for you.

There are many cosmetic products that call themselves “organic” on their packagings but beware, is not gold all that glitters. They can have organic substances on its formulation, as an example lavender oil, but what if this oil has been harvested through pesticides and overexploited crops?. We work with Inika cosmetics in our courses, since its organic certification seal is one of the strictest in the world. This is the Australian label OFC (Organic Food Chain). Any product showing this label on its packaging, has over 70% certified organic ingredients. The remaining ones, have to be natural, and approved for use in the manufacture of organic products. As an example; Ecocert, which is the most famous French certification label, may imply that a product with its seal is 100% organic, when sometimes it has only 10% organic components. It is the best known and the most permissive ones. We work with only the best cosmetics for our customers, and certainly Inika is one of the most reliable companies on the planet when talking about certified organic makeup terms.
