Quick Question: What is the Difference Between Natural and Organic Beauty Products?

Skin Care


According to Dr. Doris Day in the April 2008 issue of Health magazine:

  • Natural refers to ingredients derived from plants, minerals, or algae.
  • Organic describes substances grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and processed without man-made chemicals.
  • Made with Organic Ingredients means that 70% or greater of the ingredients are organic content.
  • USDA Certified Organic is the highest standard.  USDA Certified Organic means that 95-100% of ingredients must meet USDA organic standards for food.  More information about USDA Certified Organic is available here.

According to Dr. Day, “The National Standards Foundation (NSF) is working with outside groups, including organic-cosmetics manufacturers (like Burt’s Bees) to create an organic standard specifically for personal-care products, which should take effect in the next year or two.”  Until then, keep the above standards in mind if you are an organic skin care product fan.  🙂

    The Made from Earth PURE ALOE Treatment is what I’ve been looking for for a very long time. Its pure Aloe Vera without all the chemicals.

    If you read the ingredient lists on your regular aloe vera lotion / gel that you can buy in any grocery store, there are always chemicals added to make the aloe vera juice into a gel. Made from Earth’s Pure Aloe Vera Treatment does not contain these additives – What you get is pure aloe vera – aloe vera in nature. It goes on your skin nicely and sinks in completely without the residue that you get from commercial gels. Wonderful product! Keep it in your fridge to prolong its shelf life and to add to its skin cooling! I’m hooked and won’t buy any other aloe vera product anymore.
