Organic beauty & wellbeing is blossoming
2020 saw a +13% growth in certified organic and natural beauty and wellbeing products, outperforming the conventional market, with consumers becoming ever more conscious of their environmental impact.
Unlike food and drink, there are no legal guidelines in place for using the term ‘organic’ within the beauty industry. With 45% of consumers agreeing that organic beauty and wellbeing products are better for the environment, there has never been a better time to certify.
