GOOD CITIZEN OF THE EARTH
IS IT REALLY ORGANIC?
YOU CAN BE SURE IF THE PRODUCT IS ORGANIC, ONLY IF IT HAS CERTIFICATE !
Because of the interventions to the natural content of the food and the pesticides used in agriculture lately, most of our community has turned to organic food and organic care products. However, the unknown point is that some products that say they are “organic” may not be organic in real terms. Many products may hold the “organic” label today; however, if they are not also holding a “certification logo”, it means that these products are not in accordance with the Organic Standards. It means that, unsuitable chemical-containing materials are used in addition to plant and fruit nectars.

WHY CERTIFIED ORGANIC?
Certified organic cosmetic products are healthy products that do not contain materials which are chemical or cause environmental pollution (pesticides, artificial fertilizers, genetically tampered organisms), and that contain a substantial amount of active content due to natural essences. Contents in conventional cosmetics are artificial molecules prepared out of petroleum for savings purposes. Since the planting, harvesting and extracting of the active contents of plants is very expensive, a simple “copy” of the molecules are obtained via industrial procedures. However, these “copies” are harmful, they are not complicated like what is created by the nature so that they can be produces in a cheap way. However, these components have an essential role, they prevent side effects. They guarantee a healthy and harmonious assimilation. The same situation goes for the effects of waste water and trash created during production on the environment. Certified organic products is a guarantee of respect for the humankind and the environment, because natural materials are present in the balanced and unique blend of the nature.
