The term organic, in general refers to a product derived from living organisms and untouched by any chemical compounds, fertilizers, or pesticides. In the cosmetic industry, the term organic means a brand or an ingredient that has been certified by one of the numerous certifying institutions that operate worldwide like the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It also bears a logo of the certifying institution which means that the said ingredients have been grown and processed under a strict code of cleanliness with no chemical compounds and no genetically modified organisms.
There is as such no specific definition pertaining to the term organic. Organic skin care products tend to offer the added benefits of decreased risk of skin irritation and allergies since they do not contain chemicals. Organic skincare products contain organic vegetable oils, organic essential oil, essential fatty acids, and vitamins. Organic skincare products are environment friendly. Organic cosmetics are produced after choosing the best ingredients derived from plants along with some other naturally occurring ingredients. Organic skincare products nourish, moisturize, and take care of the skin gently. Organic skincare products come with different labels. The label “100% Organic” signifies that the product contains only organically produced ingredients and is permitted to display the seal. The label “Organic” means the product contains at least 95% organically produced ingredients and is permitted to display the seal. The label “Made with Organic Ingredients” means that the product contains at least 70% organic ingredients but is not permitted to display the seal. Demand for organic products in the skin care space is seeing rapid growth.
There is a paradigm shift in consumer awareness about health and wellness owning to the growing number of beauty blogs and social media accounts dedicated to the benefits of going organic. This is a major driver for the organic skin care industry.
