Certified Organic cosmetics versus Organic or natural Cosmetics

In its simplest form, Certified Organic Cosmetics will meet the criteria as laid down by the relevant certifying body. natural or organic Cosmetics may or may not meet the requirements that cover the whole process from field to bottle on the shelf.

It’s hard to imagine that beauty or self-care products could be poisonous, particularly when the label uses words like “organic”, “pure” or “safe”. The reality, though, is unless you read the ingredient label, understand organic certification and consider the packaging, you really don’t know what you are putting on your skin and into your body by way of absorption through the skin.

Did you know you can absorb more toxins from personal, skincare and hair-care products than from food?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body — and also the thinnest. Less than one-tenth of an inch separates your body from potential toxins. Worse yet, your skin is highly permeable. Just about anything you put on your skin will end up in your bloodstream and will be distributed throughout your body.

Putting chemicals on your skin or scalp may actually be worse than eating them. When you eat something, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help to break it down and flush it out of your body. However, when you put these chemicals on your skin, they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream without filtering of any kind, going directly to your delicate organs.

Once these chemicals find their way into your body, they tend to accumulate over time because you typically lack the necessary enzymes to break them down. When you add up daily exposure over the course of a lifetime, this represents an untold amount of chemical exposure.
