Organic Personal Care

What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies. After all, our skin is our largest organ. Purchasing organic personal care items means that you’re taking a stand against using ingredients on your body that have been sprayed with chemicals and harmful pesticides. A cosmetic or personal care product claiming to be organic must comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), plus the labeling and safety regulations overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

According to the USDA, organic cosmetics carrying the “USDA Organic” logo come in three varieties:

  • “100 percent organic” can be used to label any product that contains 100 percent organic ingredients.
  • “Organic” can be used to label any product that contains at least 95 percent organic ingredients.
  • “Made with Organic ______” can be used to label a product that contains at least 70 percent organically produced ingredients.

USDA-certified organic products are marked with the green-and-white “USDA Organic” logo. Some of the best organic makeup brands and personal care brands we carry include: Dr. Bronner’s, Desert Essence, Avalon Organics, Giovanni, Honey Girl Organics, Hurraw! and Acure among many others. Check out our Guide to Organic Beauty Products on the blog to learn more.

What Ingredients Should You Avoid in Natural Beauty Products?

Ever heard of the dirty dozen? It’s a list of heavily sprayed fruits and vegetables that are best to purchase organic. Well, the same goes for body care products! With the proliferation of so many synthetic compounds, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), more than 1 in 5 personal care products contain chemicals linked to cancer. The takeaway: Every spritz contains risk. Yet skincare doesn’t need to be fraught with carcinogens.

How do you make smart choices? Just like with produce, choose wisely based on levels of pesticide exposure. Here’s a dirty dozen list of toxins found in personal care products:

  1. Antibacterials (triclosan)
  2. Coal tar
  3. DEA/TEA/MEA
  4. 1,4-Dioxane
  5. Formaldehyde
  6. Fragrance
  7. Lead
  8. Oxybenzone
  9. Parabens
  10. Petroleum distillates
  11. P-Phenylenediamine
  12. Toluene
