Organic and Natural Skincare - Questions and Answers

To help you make the best decision, here are a few answers to commonly asked questions about natural and organic skincare that we hope you will find helpful.

What does organic skincare mean?

Organic skincare means that the ingredients in the product have been prepared without harmful ingredients such as pesticides and parabens. The word ‘organic’ refers to how the ingredient has been cultivated. 

Are organic skincare products better?

Potentially, yes. Organic skincare products contain ingredients absent from the presence of herbicides and pesticides, ultimately meaning that your skin won't be contaminated with these harmful substances. 

What is organic skincare made of?

Organic skincare products are made from raw materials such as plants and roots. These raw materials should not have had any synthetic ingredients added to them during their cultivation nor should they have undergone heavy chemical processing during the making of the product.

What is the side effect of organic cream?

Just because something is organic doesn't always mean that there aren't any pitfalls. For example, if you have an allergy to a natural or raw product, regularly applying it to your skin wouldn't be the wisest or safest choice. In certain cases, organic creams can cause skin irritation and reactions. 

What is the difference between natural and organic products?

Organic products are made from ingredients that have not been exposed to harsh chemicals or have been put through many chemical processes. Natural products are obtained from mineral sources, as well as plants and animal by-products. 

What are natural skincare products?

Natural skincare products are those derived from plants, minerals, and/or animal by-products. These products should not contain GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), should not have been tested on animals, and the quality of the ingredients should not be compromised during any processing. 

However, a ‘natural’ labeled skincare product does not have specified guidelines as to what ‘natural’ entails, so these labels are often used as marketing schemes. 

What are the benefits of organic skincare?

Organic skincare products are free from nasty chemicals so you are less likely to develop allergic reactions, unless, of course, you are allergic to any ingredient in the products such as nuts.

Natural skin care vs synthetic skincare? Which is better? This debate has been on the lips of many for sometime, but especially of late. 

At the end of the day, the choice is yours, but in order to keep yourself safe and the earth, natural skincare products would be the safer option.

How long does it take for organic products to work?

Organic skincare products contain ingredients that have not been exposed to any dangerous chemicals during the farming stage and have been through minimal chemical processing, ensuring the quality of the ingredients. 

However, organic doesn't necessarily mean better for you. If you suffer from allergies, certain ingredients in these organic products may cause reactions and irritations on your skin. 

Natural skincare products are similar to organic ones, however, although natural means are derived from natural materials such as plants and minerals, organic products have stricter guidelines and principles that classify them as organic. 

It ultimately depends on you whether or not you will use an organic or natural skincare range. So be sure to check the ingredients and credibility before making your decision.
