Consumer Affairs - Organic Skincare Buyers Guide

Organic skincare has grown from a niche market into a full-blown industry. Its products focus on innovation, inspiration, consumer health, and eco-consciousness. Today's over-the-counter skin care products often contain ingredients with a long list of harmful side effects. For example, one ingredient might be banned in the European Union, but may still be legal in the United States due to minimal FDA regulations in the industry. Another toxic ingredient might be hidden under the catch-all 'parfum' or 'fragrance' label. With organic skincare products, the ingredients list is “cleaner” and it does not take a graduate degree in chemistry to understand the ingredients used. The clean beauty revolution has resulted in companies formulating products that rely less on harsh synthetics and more on sustainably sourced plant based ingredients. These products are natural and healthy ways to nourish skin, without the hidden ingredients, but with equally effective results.
