Why Choose Certified Organic
Why Choose Certified Organic?
Currently, body care products are not required to comply with the stringent organic food standards maintained by certification bodies such as the BFA and NASAA in Australia and the USDA in America, hence the plethora of so many "organic" body care products now on the market.
Since water is the primary ingredient in many cosmetics, some manufacturers are claiming to use organic hydrosols, or floral water, to green wash their products and make organic label claims while using the same synthetic toxic ingredients that would NEVER be allowed in organic food products. We believe this practice has the potential to destroy the integrity of the organic name.
The only way customers can be assured that they are purchasing Real Organic products produced without the use of synthetic chemicals and GMO's is to purchase products which have been organically certified with a leading independent certifying body such as the;
|ACO (Australian Certified Organic)||USDA(US Department of Agriculture)|
|BFA (Biological Farmers of Australia)||IFOAM(International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements)|
