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.

Textures

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

Colors

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

Security

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.

Durability

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