More and more, people are paying attention to what they eat and put into their bodies. Eating clean is one of the best things you can do for your health, along with exercise. Organic skin care, however, is still overlooked by most people. If you’re going to go out of your way to eat well and not put any harmful things into your body, why would you rub just anything into your skin?
Introduction To Organic Skin Care
So, you want to learn more about organic skin care? You’re in the right place. Let’s start by explaining exactly what organic skin care even means.
What Does Certified Organic Mean?
There are numerous groups and organizations that will put their stamp of approval on a product, allowing the manufacturer to claim that it is “certified organic”. It’s always worth digging a little deeper into these groups, because they don’t all have the same standards or the same inspection criteria. When organic foods really started to get popular, it was revealed that some of the companies responsible for certifying foods as organic were slacking, or simply not being honest or ethical with their appraisals, and it stands to reason that such practises exist in the skin care world as well. Any certified organic product will feature a logo or badge somewhere on the package or bottle, and it only takes a minute or two to look up how legitimate that claim really is.
Who Cares About Organic Skin Care?
Some people care a lot more about organic products than others, and that’s okay! Not everyone has the same philosophies about what they put on and in their bodies, and sometimes people who are really into organic stuff are put in a certain category along with “hippies” the like. The fact is, being concerned and aware of what goes into and onto your body is never a bad trait to have.
Where To Get Organic Skin Care Products
There are a lot of places you can get organic skin care products, but you definitely can’t get them everywhere. They’re still considered to be somewhat of a specialty item, however anywhere with a large enough cosmetics section should be stocking at least some organic products. Please keep in mind that there’s a huge distinction between “should be” and “actually will”. Here are some suggestions if you’re looking for organic skincare products…
- Specialty Shops, Health Stores, Etc: Specialty boutique skin care kiosks and shops are the most likely places you’ll find organic skincare products locally.
- Drug stores, Supermarkets, Department stores: By virtue of being large, chances are some of these stores will have some forms of organic skin care in their cosmetics sections. You’re more likely to find it in a specialty shop, because they tend to cater to this more often.
- Online Shopping: The internet is the best place to find organic skin care products. The downside is you won’t be able to try out a sampler first (Unless, of course, you order a few sample sizes of various products to try out first, or get in touch with the website to see if they are willing to send a few samples.) The net is also where you’re likely to find the best prices, and the best selection. Another downside is that you’ll have to wait, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and to restock before you run out!
- Making Your Own: This is our favorite answer. Making your own organic skin care products is fun, easy and very affordable – also you’ll know exactly what’s going into it. Not only that, but once you get the hang of it (sometimes it takes trying one or two blends before it’s perfect), you can even start to share your creations with your friends. If they love it (Of course they will!!), you might even want to consider starting a little business selling skin care products. You never know when or where you’ll find your calling! SkinCareTycoon is an online course designed to help women (and men) who want to create their own skin care brands from scratch. They’ll show you everything you need to know, from the bottom up including how to actually make the products, how to package them, how to market them and everything in between.
