Pure and natural with absolutely no nasties.
The world of natural cosmetics can feel a little bit like the wild west at times, with all sorts of dubious claims being made.
‘Greenwashing’ as it’s known, is when a product shouts about being ‘natural’ when it contains only the tiniest drop of a natural ingredient, or worse, contains ingredients we think should be banned from ever touching your skin.
Soil Association COSMOS Natural certification guarantees a product contains at least 98% natural origin ingredients, with no ‘nasties’ like parabens or phthalates, synthetic colours, fragrances or genetically modified (GM) ingredients, and hasn’t been tested on animals.
Products such as toners, masks and bath salts that are made with high levels of pure natural water, clay and salt – none of which can be ‘grown’ and so can’t be certified organic.
