Organic Natural Skin Products - What to Look For, What to Buy

What are "Organic Natural Skin Products" Anyway?

When searching out organic natural skin products, it is actually quite important not just to look for the words, "organic" and/or "natural" on the front of the label.  Unfortunately, I have seen these terms used rather loosely...

For example, a label on a front of a skin product may use the word "natural" - and if one doesn't check it out the ingredients and the products more closely, she or he may believe that the product is actually all natural when in fact it has some natural ingredients - but it also may have ingredients that are not so natural or good for skin and body.

Let's look at these terms, shall we?

"Organic":  There are actually two definitions to look over here from the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language:
  • "Simple, healthful, and close to nature"
  • "Raised or conducted without the use of drugs, hormones, or synthetic chemicals"
"Natural":  Here are some definitions provided by MSN Encarta:
  • "of nature: relating to nature"
  • "produced by nature: present in or produced by nature, not artificial or synthetic" 
OK, so these definitions should give an idea of what a product should contain when it is called "natural" or "organic" right?

But - keep in mind that there are quite a number of definitions of each of the words given above, any one of which may be being used to describe the ingredients, or the products may simply have some ingredients in them that conform to one or another of the definitions given above.

Here's my point:  When someone is looking for "organic natural skin products", then that person would likely be looking for a product with all of the ingredients conforming to the definitions given above - right?

I have a personal policy that I follow in life, whether it comes to the products I use or a state of mind or a solution to a problem:  "Simple works best."  =)
