Beauty & Wellbeing
Our skin is our body's largest organ and much of what we put on it is likely to be absorbed into our bloodstream
Non-organic health and beauty products on the market have been known to contain some ingredients and non-biodegradable chemicals which may have a negative impact on human health in wider use - so it’s no surprise that beauty brands are choosing to go organic - providing us with a more sustainable alternative.
However unlike food, there is currently no legal standard in place for organic beauty meaning products can be labelled as 'natural' or 'organic’ and actually contain little to no organic ingredients.
That's why we created our own standard, Soil Association Certification. Organic certification is the only way you can be sure of the quality and integrity of the growing number of Organic Beauty products available in shops and online.
More recently we have teamed up with four other European partners to develop a new Cosmetic Organic Standard (COSMOS) to harmonise organic standards globally.
