Now, more than ever, people are questioning what is being put into skin care products they use. With terms such as NATURAL and ORGANIC being thrown around, it’s important to know not only what these really mean, but how they affect the way the product is labeled, the way the ingredients are listed on the packaging, and the overall effectiveness of the product.
What exactly does it mean when a product is labeled NATURAL or ORGANIC? In the broadest sense, a natural product is something that originated from a plant or animal source, and an organic product is a natural product that is grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.
In the world of skin care, the biggest difference between products labeled NATURAL and ORGANIC is the amount of regulation imposed by the government.
