While the range of organic and natural beauty products is growing by the day, distinguishing the pure from the phoney is not straightforward. There is no strict labelling system and although manufacturers are supposed to list all the ingredients clearly on the packet, this information can be misleading. For a product to be called ‘natural’, for example, it need contain only 1 per cent of natural ingredients. We will be covering each aspect of this.
Many manufacturers of personal care and household items still test their products on animals, despite the growing number of alternative methods for evaluating product safety. We will provide an updated list containing all such companies and their brand names.

Ten things you do not want in your cosmetics:

  • Artificial colours
  • Formaldehyde
  • Imidazolidinyl
  • Fragrance
  • Isopropyl
  • Methyl paraben
  • Methylisothiazolinone
  • Paraffin
  • Propylene glycol
  • Sodium lauryl sulphate

Examples of natural ingredients in the organic cosmetics, hair and personal beauty skin care products:

  • Jojoba Oil
  • Geranium (Rose) Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus, Blue Mallee Essential Oil
  • Echinacea Extract
  • Coconut Oil
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Citronella Essential Oil
  • Chamomile Extract
  • Avocado Oil
  • Aloe Vera


If exercised in the right way, organic skin care can prevent the occurrence of a lot of skin disorders and can help keep your skin healthy and young-looking for a much longer time.

The best organic skin care will be:

  • Non toxic
  • Safe
  • a Certified Organic Skin Care
  • a Certified Organic Cosmetic
  • a USDA Certified Organic Probiotic
  • a legitimate organic skin care currently in the market place
  • INTERNATIONALLY Certified Organic - USDA - IFOAM - ACO - JAS
  • Environmentally friendly
  • High quality
  • Natural
  • Synthetic chemical free
  • NOT tested on animals

Why these products are better than conventional products

The words Certified Organic backed up by the logos say it all. These products are certified safe and completely free of all chemicals from the growing of the crops on Certified Organic farms to the production and the manufacturing facilities and the packaging used; all of which have to meet the highest possible OrganicCertification.
