Why Certified Organics?
Cosmetic products with certified organics are the products which do not contain chemicals and pollutants (pesticides, fertiliser, hormones, antibiotics genetically modified organism, etc). In traditional cosmetics the ingredients are artificial molecules prepared by petrol oils because of saving. As the active ingredients of the herbs are very expensive to plant, harvest and extract, a “simple” counterpart of molecules are obtained with industrial treatment. But, not only these “counterparts” are inefficacious but also the damage they cause has been discussed. In order to produce in a cheap way, they do not look like the ones created by nature which are more complicated. However, these components have essential roles; they guarantee of healthy and harmonious assimilation. The same issue is also true for the effects of waste water and garbage on the environment during a production period.
