Organic Beauty Products
It can be confusing - organic, clean, vegan - what is the difference? And why do I care about organic products anyway? We've outlined 8 very important reasons why organic skin care is actually better for you, just as effective as regular products, and why exactly they are better for the earth and animals.
What is the Difference Between Organic, Clean, and Vegan?
There are some key differences between organic beauty products, clean beauty, and vegan beauty products.
Organic Beauty Products:
Organic products are required to contain a certain percentage of organic ingredients, typically 70-95%, depending on the part of the world is it produced. Organic products follow stricter guidelines that other kinds of products, which can create a stronger sense of reliability and certainty when shopping for products.
Clean Beauty Products:
Clean beauty products are going to be formulated to avoid certain harmful ingredients, like parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, fragrances, petroleum, formaldehyde, silica, talc – and a variety of other ingredients that might vary from company to company. They may not follow the same organic product guidelines, but they are still very desirable for the health conscious product user.
Vegan Beauty Products:
Vegan beauty products will not contain any animal derived ingredients. It does not mean necessarily mean it’s completely plant based. A vegan product can contain earth derived clay or salt, but it cannot contain animal derived ingredients.

Organic Beauty Products: 8 Reasons Why They’re Better
- ORGANIC PRODUCTS ARE JUST AS EFFECTIVE
Natural products had a historically bad rap for not working as well as their drugstore counterparts, but that’s long over. Organic products have been proven to provide the desired results with the amazing advanced technology and high quality.
Plants grown organically are found to contain a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. Because they are grown without herbicides and pesticides, their organic ingredients are also free from that contamination, which means the same for your skin and body.
Moreover, up to 95% of an organic skin care product's contents are active ingredients. In synthetic skin care products, active ingredients only make up 5 to 10% of its contents.
- YOU'LL LESSEN YOUR OVERALL CHEMICAL AND SYNTHETIC INTAKE
While it’s been long debated as to whether the penetration of products can travel all the way into the bloodstream, our skin, the largest organ on our body, is still absorbing everything that we apply topically.
If you’re not ready to make the full move to organic products right away or if your budget it tights, start with products that are applied to the thinnest parts of your skin – like eyes, forehead, mouth, neck. Those areas will absorb more quickly. You can them move on to other products when it best fits your timeline or budget.
- ORGANIC FARMING IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Organic farming and gardening is far better for the environment and the earth. One of the biggest concerns about non-organic farming is the chemicals that are absorbed by the soil and ground, which are carried on into our water, food, trees, etc. Preventing this can greatly benefit many areas of our life.
- NON-ORGANIC PRODUCTS CONTAIN HARMFUL CHEMICAL VS. ORGANIC PRODUCTS ARE MAKE OF SAFER NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Our business was conceived by the experience of picking up a container of skin care and reading the ingredients. Those hard to pronounce words are not only synthetics and chemicals, but they are potentially very dangerous and concerning. Look for labels that focus on plant names ingredients, minerals and earth based ingredients that you can recognize.
Non-organic skin care products contain synthetic, man-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, laureth sulphate, and toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Studies have also found that they can contain mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, and other chemicals that, with long term use, can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance, organ toxicity, and even cancer.
Organic products are derived from plants and other naturally occurring ingredients. More importantly, those organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. With that, you can be sure your skin and body absorb only real, natural ingredients that aren't harmful.
- ORGANIC PRODUCTS ARE MORE NON-ALLERGENIC THAN CHEMICALLY MADE PRODUCTS
Without harsh chemicals, organic skin care products are less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammations or irritations. If an allergic reaction does occur with the use of organic products, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient (such as peanuts or strawberries), which would be easier to identify.
- USING NON-ORGANIC "INSTANT GRATIFICATION" INGREDIENTS WILL WEAKEN AND DAMAGE YOUR SKIN OVER TIME.
The synthetic ingredients found in non-organic products may be fast acting, but they are also invasive, causing harm that cannot be seen. Their chemical ingredients may provide instant gratification and visible results, but most of these only help you aesthetically by smoothening out wrinkles, removing sunspots, and diminishing blemishes. With prolonged use, these chemicals can damage and weaken your skin as your body tries to cope with these foreign substances – causing premature aging and other ailments.
Using natural, organic skin care products, though, ensure that you get the real nutritional benefits from its ingredients. Natural organic ingredients such as coconut oil, honey, aloe vera, and shea butter, for example, are known to soothe, nourish, moisturize and promote smooth skin. Even though the results may be slightly slower, organic skin care products are gentle on your skin and won’t harm you in the long run.
- YOU'LL BE SUPPORTING CRUELTY FREE PRODUCTS
The beauty industry has received backlash for conducting animal testing for their products to ensure that they are safe for human use. Organic products don't need to, because, with natural ingredients, they're safe and harmless.
Organic farming is also better for wildlife, causes lower pollution from pesticide and fertilizer sprays, and produces less carbon dioxide and less dangerous wastes. By using organic skin care products, you're helping to minimize your environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment.
- YOU'LL BE HELPING TO PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT
Because organic products use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilizers, they don't leave a harmful footprint on the planet, particularly the soil, water, and air.
Organic skin care products not only make you feel and look better, but it feels great knowing you're doing something nice for the earth.
