DID YOU KNOW THATEVEN IF A RAW MATERIAL IS CONSIDERED NATURAL, IT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS ORGANIC OU VEGAN?
There are raw materials that are extracted from animal sources, such as animal glycerine, carmine pigment, lanoline, bee wax, among others. They are
considered natural but are not vegan or cruelty free. Just as with the water, argyle, and pigments from Simple Organic, which are natural but can’t be
classified as organic dure to their mineral origin.
In other ords, every organic raw material is natural, but that does not mean that every natural raw material is organic.
So, does this mean that water is not considered an organic ingredient?
The answer is YES! Water is a MINERAL compound, so it DOES NOT originate from an organic cultivation, and organic inputs are with no exceptions of VEGETAL origin.
SO, DOES THAT MEAN THAT IT IS HARD TO FIND A HIGH-PERFORMANCE COSMETIC PRODUCT THAT IS 100% ORGANIC??
The answer is YES. For a product to be 100% organic, its formulation must be mandatorily composed by pure oils, or the combination of oils wakes and organic butters. However, there is always the necessity of using at least one antioxidant to keep the organoleptic features of the product, like appearance, colour and scent. Even if the concentration of an antioxidant is low, around 1%, it is still necessary. This way, the product can have 99% of organic inputs, and 1% of natural inputs, as with pure repackaging pure oils. To sum it up, our priority is to always use vegetal oils, essential oils, butters and organic plant extracts (because these inputs also exist only in a natural, but not organic version) when capable of being added to the formulation, in their highest possible percentage!
