So, you’ve decided to go organic and give your beauty shelves an overhaul? Good choice, we say, considering today’s forward-thinking, organic blends. Now, we can be ingredient conscious but still reap the benefits of hard-working age-proofers, longwearing makeup and concentrated hair conditioners.
That said, it can be tough to figure out what’s green and what’s boasting false, grand claims. Unlike food, there are still no legal regulations over what qualifies as organic, but brands can be certified by the Soil Association – look out for the logo.
This badge of honour is awarded if 95% of a product’s agro-ingredients and 20% of the entire product is organic. Unctions with 70-95% organic agro-ingredients will also be approved though they aren’t allowed to claim to be organic.
