Do you know what organic skin care products are? Or are you a little confused?
What is organic skin care? How do you find the best organic skin care? How do you find the safest organic skin care brand? What is the safest organic moisturizer?
Every day women worldwide search words like these in their favorite search engine, and there is a growing interest in organic skin care.
But whilst many people are interested in finding out about organic skin care products most don't know what they are exactly. And there's no easy way to tell you what they are, because there is no formal definition of the term.
What does organic mean? Search the dictionary and youll find something like this:
characteristic of, pertaining to, or derived from living organisms.
In other words, they came from something living.
Ok, that helps a little, but still doesn't tell us what organic skin care products really are.
As an example do organic skin care products only come from sources like farms that are “certified organic”? If so what about ingredients from products grown in other countries? What are their certification standards?
So what happens where an ingredient is used from a non farm source? There are excellent skin care products using a particular Japanese seaweed. The sea isn't “certified organic” is it?
But surely anything that comes from the sea is clean? No sadly there are many contaminants in the sea in certain places.
Are you beginning to see the problem? There's no definition of organic skin care, no way to tell what it is, and no way to know if what is marketed as, for example, an organic moisturizer, really is.
And the same problem applies equally to skin care products that are “natural”.
Lets think more laterally. Someone searching for organic skin care companies is trying to find something.
She is trying to find a skin care line that is safe to use, and works well. Because more and more consumers are learning that most big brand skin care products (and cosmetics and much more) are filled with chemical ingredients that may be dangerous to the health, and skin. Ingredients like mercury and lead.
And even some products labeled organic natural skin care can too.
It's true. And that's why so many women worldwide are now looking for more natural or organic skin care lines and cosmetics. But even this doesn't guarantee safety.
So now we can use this information.
They want “safe” skin care products that work well. So how do we find these?
The first place to start is with the cosmetic safety database. Here you can search any of the ingredients in any products to see if they have any risk factor to health.
And you can also find, at the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics, a compact that any company can sign that evidences their intention to use only known safe ingredients. You won't find any of the big brand names there that have signed.
So if you are considering cosmetics or skin care products from a company that hasn't signed then don't buy.
There's 2 things you can do to find safe skin care products and cosmetics. Search the ingredients, and search the compact. Find out where to do these searches at my website.
But it's perfectly possible that totally safe products don't work very well. How do you know if they work?
I believe that the best way to see if products work is to try them yourself. But if you do that you may waste some money on products that don't work.
But luckily the company that makes what I consider to be the best skin care products in the world offers a 90 day money back guarantee, so you can try their products risk free.
If their products were no good they'd go broke giving money back, so it's not a coincidence that their products are world class.
So there you have a step by step method of finding safe and effective skin care products.
