Cosmetics: Natural and Bio, what is the difference?


20 May 2020

Organic beauty products win your hearts! Organic is everywhere. Increasingly present on supermarket shelves as on drugstore stalls.... Difficult to miss!
More and more people are turning to natural and eco-responsible cosmetics, according to a study by the French Institute of Public Opinion. And while the general awareness of environmental protection is behind the development of such products, it is not the only reason for their use. Indeed, many of you consider organic beauty products to be more effective than traditional products.

Cosmetics: natural and organic, what is the difference?

If the trend of natural is more relevant than ever, it is difficult as a consumer to differentiate products from greenwashing from those that really want you good. In order not to be mistaken, it is important to understand the difference between natural and organic products. Indeed, if an organic product is necessarily natural, the reverse is not true.
To put it simply, so-called "natural" cosmetics must be of vegetable, mineral or animal origin. On the other hand, there is no labeling around natural products: no percentage of natural ingredients is mandatory and the exact origin of the components is sometimes unknown. It is therefore important to remain vigilant when choosing this type of product.
An organic cosmetic is a product containing mainly ingredients from organic farming and must meet a rigorous charter approved by a certifying body. Our advice? Look for the Ecocert and Cosmebio labels on your cosmetics. They certify the eco-responsibility of the product and guarantee that at least 95% of its components are natural or of natural origin, that at least 95% of the plants used are organic and that at least 10% of the final product are organic.

And in all of this, which products to choose?

Rest assured, whether a product is of natural or organic origin, it is there to pamper you! But here are a few tips to make sure you're using products that are good for your skin and the environment.
First tip: Beware of cosmetics claiming to be roughly "healthy". When the name is very suggestive, that it contains a lot of green and vegetable illustrations but no label, the product is often not as green as it seems. A false organic pastille is even sometimes affixed to it to mislead you!
This is when a quick glance at the list of ingredients (INCI list) is essential and especially not on the packaging.
Second tip: do not worry if you do not understand the entire composition of the product. Most of the time, more than 70% of the cosmetic formula is included in the first 5 ingredients. So take a look at these to make sure a product is trustworthy.
Third tip: Create your own natural and organic products at home! Many sites and videos guide you on the use of different plant and mineral ingredients for making cosmetics. Eco-responsible, personalized products without packaging. What more ?
