To obtain organic certification for a product, a minimum of 95% of all ingredients of agricultural origin must be certified organic. The remaining 5% of ingredients however are also bound by strict guidelines. and no synthetic chemicals or artificially processed ingredients are allowed.
Currently, (2006) body care products are not required to comply with the stringent organic food standards maintained by International certification bodies such as the BFA and NASAA in Australia and the USDA in America, hence so many “organic” body care products now on the market.
Since water is the primary ingredient in many cosmetics, some manufacturers are claiming to use organic hydrosols, or floral water, to green wash their products and make organic label claims whilst using the same synthetic toxic ingredients that would NEVER be allowed in organic food products.
However, the organic cosmetics and skin care products featured on this site are currently the only skin care products that have submitted to, and complied with, the rigorous processing and labelling requirements for certified organic food of the two International Organic Certifications shown below :-
ACO Certificate -
These products bear the Australian Certified Organic logo.
BFA Certificate -
These products bear the BFA Registered Product logo.
The benefits of certified organic products and processes:
Safe, clean and potent plant extracts of high vitality.
Sustainable agriculture that respects, supports and nurtures the complete ecology and energy of our planet.
Authenticity and integrity of organic and natural claims.
Prevention of damage to the environment and humans by the poisonous chemicals used in conventional agriculture.
The only way to ensure that products are 'natural' and 'organic' is to look for the International Organic Certification logos.
The Importance Of Our Soil And The Role Of Organics.
(Excerpts from a new book by Alf Orpen)
"We know more about the movement of celestial bodies than about the soil underfoot". -
Many cultures’ creation stories have us coming from the soil. Even the biblical beginning has the first people named Adam (from the Hebrew word adama meaning "earth" or "soil") and Eve (from hava meaning "living"). Together, they hint to us that life comes from soil or the soil is alive. Literally both are true.
EO Wilson, professor of ecology at Harvard University, states that "the soil is a living organism... It’s dynamic. It’s full of life. And it does not produce anything for human beings unless it’s sustained in that living condition."
In one gram of healthy soil there can be more than 10,000 species and over a billion living micro-
All food comes from the earth.
The economy doesn’t produce our food, the earth does, which in turn makes the economy possible. This simple reality has somehow been reversed in our thinking and is the cause of much of the devastation we see today.
The soil is our primary health care system and when healthy, is the source of more than 98% of human nutrition. The soil is the building blocks of life itself.
In the words of a Kayapo leader; PaikanIt "the earth is our supermarket and our drug store"
“The nation that destroys its soil destroys itself” -
Soil loss, and its associated impacts, is one of the most important, yet probably the least well known of today's environmental problems.
According to David Pimentel, Professor of Ecology and Agricultural Sciences at Cornell University "soil erosion is one of the world’s greatest disasters" as "it takes 500 years to form one inch (2.5cm) of topsoil, yet worldwide we are losing 75 billion tons of soil each year".
That’s an estimated 25 times faster than it can be replaced calculates University of Michigan professor of geological sciences Bruce Wilkinson. We have already lost in the vicinity of 30% of the worlds topsoil and much of it caused by human activities such as deforestation, intensive chemical farm practices and development.
Organics, the Soil-
In today's world, it is easy to forget that we are as much a part of the environment and as dependent on it as all other living creatures.
Organic advocates have long understood the value of healthy soil, knowing that soil is not simply a physical medium for crop growth but the means by which plant nutrition naturally occurs.
Healthy soils do indeed create healthy plants and that result in healthy people. To support people that understand AND undertake these activities is indeed the solution. It’s that simple, “buy responsibly” knowing that what you choose makes a bigger difference than what you read, talk or protest about.
Knowledge can only be considered power, when acted upon!
"The threat of nuclear weapons and man's ability to destroy the environment are really alarming. And yet there are other almost imperceptible changes -
