Nowadays, people only swear by the term “organic”. For the respect of biodiversity and the environment, all business sectors are doing everything possible to reduce or even eliminate the use of chemicals or petrochemicals in products. The beauty and cosmetics sector is at the forefront. And, through initiatives, this sector aims to promote ecological awareness among consumers in order to better enter the “organic” ethic.
What are organic cosmetic products?
It is good to briefly define what an organic cosmetic product is. They are products composed of natural products from organic farming for care, hygiene and beauty. A product is said to be organic when it meets the requirements of manufacturing rules, charters and labels in the field or sector to which the product belongs. Currently, in the beauty sector, strict rules are in place, particularly in the composition and testing of products, as well as in standards. But not only, since currently, have organic products stood out for the conservation of products in order to reduce polluting ingredients in plastic or cellophane packaging, which are harmful to the environment.
All of this is necessary in order to strengthen respect for biodiversity and encourage ecological awareness in everyone.
Natural products in the spotlight!
Organic cosmetics aim to protect the environment both in the composition of the products and in their initiatives. In fact, the manufacturing and conservation standards for organic cosmetic products are designed to encourage respect for biodiversity, to ban polluting ingredients, but also to reduce packaging that is harmful to the environment.
The beauty sector currently aims to produce good quality cosmetics, natural, but still effective, and this by emphasizing hygiene and beauty, and health protection. Natural products are invading the beauty sector market because we are taking them away from ourselves! In fact, the natural products used are very popular because there are no more polluting ingredients and they are more respectful of health and the environment. In the very vision of respect for biodiversity, it is often noticed that organic cosmetics are kept in pump bottles that are often reusable, and in order to reduce packaging, biodegradable packaging is increasingly used.
Yves Rocher is one of the oldest French brands of plant cosmetics in France. It is a brand renowned for the composition of its products with ingredients from organic farming. But what are really plant cosmetics? It’s simple, the ingredients that make up cosmetics come 90% or even more from certain brands of plants and do not use chemicals or products from animals, and even for vegan products, tests cannot even be done on animals. Vegan cosmetics are safe for the health of hair and skin, which is really ideal for people with allergies.
For the Yves Rocher brand in particular, the brand has a growing area where it sources the plants grown by their care. And as a result, they produce the ingredients for the products themselves. This not only considerably reduces the cost of manufacturing the products, but also means that there is more control and mastery in the exploitation of resources, all while respecting biodiversity. Always respecting ethics, and in order to reduce packaging, the Yves Rocher brand uses PVC-free packaging, but also agrees to an eco-design study to ban polluting products contained in plastics and cellophane.
Several of the brands claim to be vegetable and organic. But to prove it, the law has reinforced its control methods to justify the mention of organic or vegetable in advertising and on labels. It is therefore prudent to be careful about what producers advertise in order to sell themselves better.
