Today, more and more people are starting to opt for “natural” and “organic” beauty products over the conventional ones that have dominated the market ever since. Before you spend your hard-earned money on these products, here’s what you need to know about natural and organic beauty products:

Natural beauty products contain ingredients from animals, minerals, or plants. They do not contain toxic chemicals, petrochemicals, parabens, and synthetic dyes and colors. Simply put, they are composed of naturally derived products.

Organic beauty products, on the other hand, can only be considered organic if all of its ingredients are made without pesticides, chemical fertilizers, growth hormones, or antibiotics. Be careful when buying organic beauty products because some of them are only “made with organic ingredients,” which means they’re not entirely organic.

It’s also important to remember that beauty products that claim to be “vegan” and “cruelty free” do not mean that they are organic or natural. Vegan means that they are free of animal products, and cruelty-free means that they were not tested on animals. So both vegan and cruelty-free products may still contain harmful synthetic ingredients.

No matter how much a brand says that it’s natural or organic, the best way to check is to carefully read its ingredients. Check out our roundup of must-try natural and organic beauty products below.
