Organic or Certified Organic?

Did you know there is a difference?


We think of the word ‘organic’ as meaning ‘grown & produced without involving the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or synthetic chemicals’

Unfortunately some manufacturers are using the chemistry definition of organic: ‘a compound that contains a carbon atom’. Carbon is found in everything that has ever lived so this is a deliberate method to confuse the public.

In this way the toxic petrochemical preservative Methylparaben could be labelled organic because it is formed from leaves rotted over thousands of years eventually becoming the crude oil from which Methylparaben is derived.

The only way to actually know you are getting true organic body care products and cosmetics is to check to see if the product line is “CERTIFIED ORGANIC” by the governing body in the country of origin and they satisfy FOOD GRADE standards.

All smoke & mirrors… designed to line the pockets of the unscrupulous manufacturers who don’t give a damn about your body.

Well, that’s my view…do you agree?

    No, I didn’t know there was a difference, though it’s obvious now that I do!

    An interesting post – had not realised the difference between “organic” and “certified organic”.

    Glad to see that you are shinning the light on the “organic products” some are questionable.

    Holy moly! There are loop holes in EVERYTHING! If there’s a way to make money by twisting the truth, than the truth will be twisted. I’m loving all the info you’re giving! Thanks!
