More and more people every day are catching on to the health benefits of organically-grown food. But many of those people still have a blind spot regarding all of the chemicals that are present in their body care products. Items that we use on our skin, in our eyes, and in our mouths everyday are being made with harmful, health-destroying ingredients.
Since the past few years, we have let chemicals encroach freely in our life. As a result of this chemical intrusion, most of our food, cosmetics and medicines, are contaminated with harmful substances as they form the basis of our modern production techniques.
Though, separate guidelines for organic cosmetics dont exist, the good news is that organic certification bodies are realizing the importance of using different set of standards for organic personal care products. The Quebec Accreditation Board has issued a notification that all cosmetic products labeled as organic in Quebec should be verified. This will boost the organic cosmetics industry in the region.
