The brand listing pages are constantly being updated as I work my way through the thousands of brands available. Whilst I like to think that I’m super efficient like mighty mouse, I also need to take a break every now and then to catch some beauty sleep, a dip in the ocean and much needed relaxation time.
If you think that I’ve missed a brand or two, please email email@example.com and I will look in to it immediately.
A side note: So many brands, so many misleading claims, so much confusion. What’s a girl to do? Having road tested natural and organic brands for 16+ years, being fortunate to work alongside and learn from leaders in the field across many disciplines, there’s really a LOT more to an ingredient list than just checking to see if it has the “certified organic” stamp of approval. Buzz words like “natural” and “organic” are so overused and as a result do not have much credibility anymore. As I have been furthering my research I have also come to understand that “certified organic” doesn’t necessarily mean that the product is better for you and the environment than one that doesn’t bear that “stamp of approval”. One example, is for a brand to amp up its ingredient percentage with a certified organic aloe which most likely has been heat treated and therefore will have lost a lot of the beneficial properties and then add a tiny percentage of active botanicals, all in aid of winning that “certified organic” stamp. But is this really the best outcome for improving the condition of your skin? Ummm.. no! A raw cold-pressed, unpasteurised aloe would be far more beneficial for bringing about a healthy glowing complexion. On top of that, there is no single “standard” for what it means to be “organic”. Every organic certifier has different points-of-view about what percentage of synthetic ingredients they will allow in a product for it still to bear their “organic stamp of approval”. Some are strict and some are so ridiculously relaxed that the organic stamp has no credibility, if you choose to dig a little deeper.
Many certified organic brands that I’ve personally tried don’t exactly bring about the desired result I’d hope for. It just so happens that my favourite brands aren’t certified organic, but they most certainly contain organic AND biodynamic ingredients and are far superior than a lot of the certified organic brands on the market. But that’s based on what works for me and my skin.
The point I am hoping that you’ll come to understand is … there are many different levels of what it means to be natural and organic. Some people are ok with products being 99.5% organic plant ingredients with a 0.5% naturally derived (but altered in a lab) preservative; some people only want to use 100% plant ingredients, some people only want to use 100% raw, and some people only want to use vegan. So, what to do? Go with what works best for you. Don’t believe the wishy washy claims on the packaging. Read the full ingredient list. Email the manufacturer and ask them about their philosophy on sourcing ingredients. Try the products before you buy them. Sooner or later you’ll find one that works best for you.
