Are Your Personal Care Products REALLY Organic?

We often get a variation of similar questions at our store and in our inbox about the ‘organic’ label for personal care products. Among these variants are:

  1. How can I make organic personal care products (eg: hair care products, skincare products, cosmetics, bath products, etc)?
  2. What makes a personal care product organic?
  3. Can I just use organic ingredients and label my product as ‘organic’ without the proper certification(s)?

The quick answers to these questions are:

  1. You can start by using ingredients and materials that are approved by organic certifiers.
  2. It must have a proper certification to be labelled as organic.
  3. No, a certification is required.

And as you can see, certificates are involved in all our answers.
