What to look out for when you’re buying ‘Natural and Organic’
As consumers, we are becoming more aware about the products that we use on our skin, and throughout our home. Most of us want to know what ingredients are in our cosmetics, skincare, or even household cleaning items we buy. But be aware that some current trends in advertising and labelling can be misleading.
What is the difference between buying something that is 100% natural, and something that is 95% natural? How important is that 5%? Quite significant, actually. If a product is 100% natural, it means that is doesn’t contain ANY synthetic ingredients at all – it means everything comes from a natural source. If something is billed as being 95% natural, then it means that it is NOT a natural product, because 5% of its make up comes from something that does NOT occur naturally.
It’s also worth noting that not every company lists ALL the ingredients that their product contains, so if something on the label seems confusing, it is best to contact the company direct to find out more. If a company truly has nothing to hide, then ALL of the ingredients will most likely be declared on the labelling, and that company will probably be very happy to help you find out more.
The ‘Organic’ claim refers to the source of the natural product. You can have a product that is 100% natural, yet not organic at all. If the natural ingredients haven’t originated from a certified organic source and growing environment, then it is not ‘Natural AND Organic’. So, again it is important to check these details if buying organic is important to you.
There are some certification logo’s that you can look out for to authenticate any natural and organic claims. These include NaTrue, BDIH, ECOCERT and ECO Garantie, as well the more commonly recognised Soil Association. These certifications often also guarantee that the product has NOT been tested on animals as well. All of these organisations have websites, if you would like to know more.
