Soil Association : Organic beauty

Soil Association : Organic beauty | Aromatherapy & Holistic Cosmetology with Mayella | Scoop.it

Look for the Soil Association symbol on organic cosmetics, organic skin care, organic hair products and organic soaps to ensure the product you buy is certified to a standard you trust.

Embody Inner Beauty with Mayella's insight:

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and what you put on it can be absorbed in tiny amounts. So it’s no surprise that a growing number of beauty products are now being produced with organic ingredients. Unfortunately, unlike organic food, there are no legal standards for organic beauty products. So as a result, some companies choose to label a product as 'organic' even if it only contains 1% organic ingredients or if it contains potentially hazardous substances.


This is why the Soil Association, alongside four other European certification bodies, have developed the Cosmetics Organic Standard, or COSMOS-standard, to harmonise organic standards globally.

There's Mercury In Your Mascara, And The UN Is OK With That

There's Mercury In Your Mascara, And The UN Is OK With That | Aromatherapy & Holistic Cosmetology with Mayella | Scoop.it
If you want to avoid mercury, you should probably put down that mascara wand and take note of the United Nations' latest decision: Mascara and other eye makeup have been officially exempt from a ban on mercury in cosmetics and soaps.
Embody Inner Beauty with Mayella's insight:

The chemical kills bacteria, so it's an effective preservative and can keep products on shelves for years. However, natural cosmetics, just like the food you eat, should have relatively short shelf lives, says makeup artist Katey Denno, likening products with mercury and other chemicals to "bomb shelter food." However, when it comes to mascara, Joanna Tempowski, a scientist for the World Health Organization’s International Program on Chemical Safety, told Environmental Health News that "the risk-benefit analysis favors the use of these preservatives" in mascara and eye makeup.
