I’ve seen lots of health and beauty products in the shops claiming to be organic - how do I know that they really are?

To ensure a health and beauty product is organic, look for a certification body logo, such as the Soil Association symbol. EU law on organic food does not extend to non food products such as textiles and beauty products. Therefore a company can label or describe a product as organic even if they only contain tiny amounts of organic ingredients, even if they contain other non-organic ingredients linked to health concerns and prohibited under organic standards.
