Think you’re buying organic skin care?

 

Then the 1st ingredient must be botanical, not water.

If a skin care product has no preservatives and is still over 95% water with no nutrients, it may have no negative effect but it will have no positive effect either since its all water and it’s not organic. 

If a skin care product had no chemicals in it that would not make it organic, that would make it chemical free. Organic can be used when describing anything that is derived from a living plant or animal. In our case, it refers to our hydroponically grown aloe vera, the main ingredient in our products. This is where the nutrients come from. Brands will insinuate they are 100% organic, but 100% organic skin care doesn’t really exist, since water is natural not organic. There are very few genuine plant based organic skin care companies and those that claim to be to be organic use water as their first ingredient, not plant matter. 
Water is only good for your skin when you drink it and is not an organic substance. 

For a skin care product to really be organic, the main ingredient must be organic plant matter. While water may be natural, it’s not organic. That’s why when you buy a bottle of water it says “natural” spring water; never “organic” spring water. 

What’s really important?

What’s important is how much of a product is made of effective organic plant matter. Oil and cocoa butter can be very organic, safe and great for a massage, but oils are notoriously comedogenic. Oil will clog the pores on your face and you don’t want that, especially, if you already have acne or oily skin. Water is a filler and will bring nothing to your skin, only aloe is left. Most people have used skin care with some aloe in it but very few have used actual aloe based skin care. Fewer yet have used skin care based on hydroponically grown (nutrient rich) aloe.
