There are still misleading information and misconceptions on organic cosmetics. To help you see clearer, we've worked on a small recap of what you should know.
ALL NATURAL COSMETICS ARE ORGANIC: Wrong
Natural cosmetics are not to be confused with organic cosmetics. Indeed, not all natural cosmetics are organic... A product is considered as organic if its plants components are at least 95% from organic farming. If the natural components are not organic, the product itself won’t be either. A label must certify it.
This is the case of all Z&MA products, that are certified by the Cosmebio label, identifiable by
In fact, you must also know that, besides the guarantees regarding the ingredients and manufacturing of the products, the Cosmebio chart seems also respect towards animals and the environment.
ORGANIC COSMETICS ARE LESS EFFICIENT THAN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS: No
If natural ingredients are thoroughly selected, based on their properties, they are amazingly efficient. Nature is rich of healing molecules. Plants produce molecules to protect themselves of environmental hostilities (sun, cold, drought, pollution, etc.) and to secure their survival. However, industrial products contain more ingredients to build and stabilize the substance than active molecules. Thus, natural and organic products are generally more efficient than the ones from traditional cosmetic.
ORGANIC COSMETICS ARE LESS PLEASANT TO USE: It is not the case
It is true that for a long time, organic cosmetics had the reputation of offering products with less pleasant smells and textures than the ones from conventional cosmetics. Significant advances have been made, and today natural formulations enables to offer rich and smooth textures thanks to noble raw materials used, like oils or vegetable butter. Furthermore, the fragrances have also undergone a great change. Made of essential oils or hydrosols, they are very evocative and can produce a real sensation of freshness and well-being. A scent of Rose or lavender creates calm and the smell of neroli invigorates. Quite nice, right?
All those who tasted the benefits of our Night Oil will tell you that its perfume provides a real phyto-sensory experience, an invitation to letting go before going to bed ;)
ORGANIC COSMETIC ARE ALLERGENIC: Not True
This argument is particularly highlighted when the products are composed of essential oils. It is important to know that if these are high-quality and well dosed, they don’t present any risk of allergies. Our laboratory, expert in biological formulation for more than 45 years, developed a real expertise and knowledge in the use of essential oils.
