“You are what you eat AND what you absorb…"
What does it mean to be certified organic? Here's a quick overview…
NATURAL - Be aware that ‘natural’ labelling doesn’t mean organic or necessarily safe. ‘Natural’ can include ingredients which have been treated with harmful pesticides. Many poisons are derived from ‘natural’ sources. Petroleum and mineral oils are ‘natural’ but potentially harmful and included in loads of products on the market.
ORGANIC - Even ‘organic’ labelling can be misleading. Unless a product is certified by a body such as the soil association, an organic product only needs to contain as little as 1% organic ingredient to be called ‘organic’. (Soil association certified means products need at least 60% organic ingredient to be awarded.) The term ‘organic’ refers only to plant based ingredients. Other effective ingredients may be included in the product such as water, clay or salt but these cannot be organic, hence justifying a certified product showing less than 100% on its labelling. (Do note however that these other products may be ‘organically sourced’, eg. salt mined without chemicals. The Soil Association now offers a certification for non-organic ingredients with the Soil Association COSMOS logo which guarantees:
- No animal testing
- No GM ingredients
- No controversial chemicals
- No parabens and phthalates
- No synthetic colours, dyes or fragrances
Don’t be fooled into thinking that all products out there on the market are safe. Big pharma companies who develop and sell them are the ones who fund and supply the research too.
