Body care is just as important as facial skin care. Various cosmetic products such as scrubs and peelings, moisturising and nourishing creams, shower gels and bath foams help to turn routine body care into a pleasant and effective beauty ritual. However, not all body care products are simultaneously effective and safe. Mass market cosmetics often contain synthetic ingredients which may do more harm than good.

Common beauty products that can be found in cosmetic stores can contain artificial ingredients which make cosmetic production cheaper but are potentially harmful. They include, but are not limited to, parabens, silicones, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), PEG (polyethylene glycol), mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, colourants and preservatives. The absence of such ingredients would make mass market products much safer, but they will also lose a lot of their properties, including a long shelf life, pleasant scent and nice colour. Is it really impossible to do without artificial ingredients in body care products?

As it turns out, artificial ingredients are not a must. Organic cosmetics is a safe alternative to mass market cosmetics stuffed with chemicals. Organic beauty products are becoming more popular with each passing day. They don’t contain aggressive chemicals, have a lot of useful properties and, what is also important, are just as affordable as your regular cosmetics. So, what are the main peculiarities and benefits of organic products?

Organic body care products are formulated with natural plant ingredients such as extracts, vegetable oils and essential oils. This makes them efficient and at the same time completely safe for your health and the environment. All organic creams, masks, soaps, lotions, shower gels, scrubs and other body care products are hypoallergenic. They don’t increase the risk of various skin conditions and don’t contain harmful substances that can accumulate in your body’s tissues.

With organic cosmetics routine body care transforms into a luxurious beauty ritual. Organic body care products have a light texture and a pleasant, natural scent provided by essential oils. They neither dry your skin out nor create a sticky, oily layer on the skin surface like some mass market products.

As you can notice, organic body care products have a lot of advantages compared to ordinary cosmetics. Unfortunately, some unprincipled manufacturers try to deceive consumers by calling their products organic when they are not. To protect yourself from fraud, you should learn about the main characteristics of organic cosmetics.

For instance, there must be signs on the packaging of organic beauty products which confirm that said products are certified in accordance with international organic production standards. Reputable European standards for natural and organic cosmetics include, but are not limited to, ECOCERT, ICEA and BDIH.

For example, ECOCERT Standard imposes that for cosmetics to be certified as organic a minimum of 95% of the total ingredients in the formula must come from natural origin and a minimum of 10% of all ingredients must come from organic farming. Organic cosmetics also must not be tested on animals and contain animal-derived ingredients unless naturally produced by animals.

Organic beauty products can be distinguished from ordinary cosmetics by their looks. For example, organic beauty products are not brightly coloured and don’t have a sharp scent. They also rarely have a thick texture and an ability to produce much foam. This is because organic products don’t contain synthetic thickeners, surfactants, colourants and perfumes that could give them such properties.

Organic body care products are a choice for those who take good care of their health and don’t want to expose themselves to the risk of allergies and other problems which can be caused by mass market cosmetics formulated with synthetic ingredients. At our online shop Organic Store you can buy natural and organic body care products without harmful chemical ingredients and take the first step towards preserving your health and natural beauty.
