Organic skin care as part of a green lifestyle
It is not easy being a green consumer. There are many so-called "natural", "clean" and "organic" skin care products on the market but there may be a myriad of harsh chemicals, even in natural toiletries, and many of them are synthetic.
There is still no legislation in the EU on organic certification for cosmetics and grooming products. The existing standards for ecology in the EU applies only food and beverages. But there are a number of organisations that set their own standards. If you want to be sure that you buy 'genuine' organic skin care, you should go for the organic symbols from a recognized authority, like The Soil Association, EcoCert and The Organic Food Federation.

Did you know ...? Build-up of toxins
Some synthetic chemicals used to produce cheap natural skin care products may help to transport chemicals through your skin and directly into the bloodstream. Many women use 10 to 15 different skin care products a day and up to 60 percent of the chemicals that come in contact with your skin may be absorbed. This means that in principle, you could be absorbing up to two kilograms of synthetic chemicals a year!
