‘Organic’ and ‘Natural’: What’s the Difference?

‘Organic’ and ‘Natural’: What’s the Difference?

It’s no surprise that the organic skin care beauty market has exploded. Over the years, people have become more aware of what’s inside their skin care products and have begun to make better decisions about what they allow on their skin.

As a result, hundreds of new skin care products have crafted by a scientist to meet this new demand for safe, natural beauty products.

Along with this growth also came a flood of natural beauty claims—creating a sort of Wild West of marketing jargon, promises, and misinformation.

To help provide a little more transparency (and because we’re obsessed with skin care products). One come to the top in the Canadian Market -growing their plants on their country property to extract essential oils and create over 400 beauty product all scented with only essential oils. With a the founder being a chemist and herbalist and using science to create natural products. Each product is designed with a purpose in mind. Each Product is developed with essential oil scent so all the oils increase the aromatherapy benefits. Lightly scented or unscented line. Just to note if product have essential oils scents the aroma opens with the warmth of your skin or bath depending on the product. So it smells heavenly once used.

First, let’s be clear about what the terms “organic” and “natural” actually mean. Organic refers to something that was food  produced without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), sewage, ionizing radiation, in the case of food and meat products as well as antibiotics and growth hormones.

Natural means something that originally “existed in” or was “derived from” nature. Additionally, if something is “certified organic” or “certified natural,” applies mostly to the food industry.

Natural or organic Skincare while meant only to be a topical application. The certification is very expensive and optional to the company and not required at this time in Canada. Each certification has their own specific certifying agency defines those terms.If a company buy pre-certified ingredients and has those certificate-each certifying agency believes if you open that certified bag of ingredient no it is not certified? What do you think of that? Very confusing indeed! Then the certifying body will charge the company a hefty sum to come in to the facility and look at how you make the product and decide if you are still organic. Then you can use their logo. Thier is no

Here is the situation concerning the organic certification of non-food products in Canada:

  • The Canadian Organic Standard and Regulations only apply to food products.
  • Non-food products (cosmetics)  are outside the scope of the Canadian Organic Regime (COR) and therefore are not required to be certified.
  • Non-certified body care products can be called “organic” but cannot make any reference to certification even if the ingredients used in the

product are certified organic.
