Organic cosmetics are aimed at people who are looking for more responsible and healthier products.

Benefits of using organic cosmetics

The benefits of using organic cosmetics are multiple. The natural products used in organic cosmetics are less aggressive and do not contain toxic chemicals that can damage the skin. In addition, they are more environmentally friendly products and social responsibility is one of the values shared by companies working in this product category. The nature of the products that make up organic cosmetics helps to keep skin and hair hydrated, healthy and protected.

Natural and organic ingredients in organic cosmetics

In organic cosmetics, the ingredients used in the manufacture of the products are of natural and organic origin. Natural ingredients are those that are extracted directly from nature, such as plants, flowers, herbs, fruits, and essential oils. Organic ingredients, on the other hand, are those that are grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers, and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals. Some of the most common ingredients in organic cosmetics include olive oil, coconut oil, argan oil, aloe vera, honey, calendula, lavender, rosehip and chamomile. These natural and organic ingredients are used in face, body and hair care products and offer a wide range of benefits for skin and hair.

Avoiding harmful ingredients in organic cosmetics

In organic cosmetics, ingredients that are considered harmful to the skin and to health in general are avoided. These are synthetic chemicals such as parabens, sulphates, phthalates, mineral oils, petroleum derivatives and endocrine disruptors. These substances are used in conventional cosmetic products and can cause irritation, allergies, inflammation and other long-term health problems. In addition, some of these ingredients can also be harmful to the environment. In organic cosmetics, ingredients are carefully selected to avoid these harmful chemicals, and natural and organic substitutes are used that do not cause any harm to the skin and overall health.

Impact of organic cosmetics on the environment

Organic farming and organic cosmetics

Organic cosmetics use organic and natural ingredients that are grown through organic farming practices. This involves the use of techniques that do not harm the land and surrounding natural resources, while avoiding the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers. By benefiting the environment, organic farming promotes biodiversity and environmental quality. In addition, organic farming does not contain harmful chemical residues that could end up on the consumer’s skin or in the water of nearby rivers.

Biodegradable and sustainable packaging

Organic cosmetics are concerned with reducing their impact on the environment down to the smallest details, such as packaging. Many brands choose to use biodegradable packaging, allowing the natural decomposition of the materials used, as opposed to plastic packaging that takes hundreds of years to decompose. These biodegradable and sustainable packages also tend to be recyclable or compostable, avoiding waste and allowing for reuse in future products.

These certifications often include specific requirements regarding cultivation procedures, use of pesticides, handling of ingredients and production.
