Organic cosmetics and Natural cosmetics

Organic cosmetics can be defined as 100% natural products made under strict standards that take care of the environment and skin.

In cosmetics, organic products are those that use raw materials of natural origin such as fats and vegetable extracts, waxes and essential oils grown without chemicals, pesticides or agrochemicals.

The key concept in organic matters is traceability: That is to say that the sowing, the care, the harvesting of the fruit and then the transformation into oil, gel or others and its later elaboration in a laboratory are done according to what the normative.

Difference between natural and organic

Although often the natural word is used as a synonym for organic, not everything that looks bio, it is. Organic products require certification that they have been grown and processed according to controlled agricultural standards.

Differences between organic cosmetics and conventional cosmetics

When we choosing natural cosmetics it is important to understand that their elaboration, smell, texture and presentation is different from that of conventional products which contain a good dose of synthetic assets.


They tend to be more liquid and oily since they do not use silicones (petroleum derivatives) or artificial thickeners.


Since it does not contain dyes and additives the products are in the range of brown and yellow greens


An organic product is not synonymous with hypoallergenic. There are organisms that react to certain trees and plants. The ideal is to know the ingredients and know whether or not we are allergic to them.


They do not have the same shelf life as those made with chemical preservatives. They usually last from 6 to 12 months


Look for certification seals and read the components.

In my next article I will talk about some of the natural cosmetics that I use, their benefits properties and how to analyze the information contained in the labels to make sure they have the requirements of bio cosmetics.

Cosmética Orgánica y Cosmética Natural

La cosmética orgánica podemos definirla como productos 100% naturales elaborados bajo estrictas normas que cuidan el medio ambiente y la piel.

En cosmética, los productos orgánicos son aquellos que usan materia prima de origen natural como grasas y extractos vegetales, ceras y aceites esenciales cultivados sin químicos, plaguicidas ni agroquímicos. 

El concepto clave en materia de orgánicos es la trazabilidad: Es decir que el sembrado, el cuidado, la recolección del fruto y luego la transformación en aceite, gel u otros y su posterior elaboración en un laboratorio se hagan de acuerdo a lo que dispone la normativa.

Diferencia entre natural y orgánico

Aunque muchas veces la palabra natural se utiliza como sinónimo de orgánico, no todo lo que parece bio, lo es. Los productos orgánicos requieren una certificación que acredite que han crecido y se han procesado según estándares agrícolas controlados. 

Diferencias entre los cosméticos orgánicos y cosmeticos convencionales

Al elegir la cosmética natural es importante comprender que su elaboración, olor, textura y presentación es diferente a la de los productos convencionales los cuales contienen una buena dosis de activos sintéticos.


Tienden a ser mas liquidas y aceitosas ya que no usan siliconas (derivados del petróleo) ni espesantes artificiales.


Al no contener colorantes y aditivos los productos se encuentran en la gama de los verdes marrones y amarillos


Un producto orgánico no es sinónimo de hipoalergénico. Hay organismos que reaccionan a determinados árboles y plantas. Lo ideal es conocer los ingredientes y saber si somos o no alérgicos a los mismos.


No tienen la misma vida útil que los que se elaboran con conservantes químicos. Suelen durar de 6 a 12 meses


Conviene buscar sellos de certificación y leer los componentes.

En mi próximo articulo hablaré de algunos de los cosméticos naturales que yo utilizo, sus beneficios propiedades y como analizar la información contenida en las etiquetas para asegurarnos de que estos cumplen con los requisitos de cosmética bio.

Hasta muy pronto
