When it comes to the health of your skin (and the planet) organic skincare products should always be your go-to. This guarantees they are free of synthetic chemicals making them gentler on the skin and providing a more nourishing experience. Additionally, organic skincare products are often more concentrated than conventional products, meaning you can use less to achieve the same results while also reducing packaging waste. It’s win-win!
But, how can you tell if a product is certified organic?
First, you’ll want to look for the USDA Certified Organic seal on the product packaging. The seal should be clearly visible and easy to spot. If you don’t see the seal, then the product is not USDA Certified Organic!
Second, you’ll want to check the ingredient list. According to this article from Peaches and Blush, some common non-organic ingredients to look for include preservatives, fragrances, and coloring agents.
Third, you can visit the USDA website to double-check the product information. On the website, you can search for the product’s name or the company that manufactured it. This will provide you with a list of certified organic products and the companies that produce them. Neat, huh!?
Finally, if you still have any questions or doubts, you can contact the company directly. The company should be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information about their organic products.
By following these steps, you can easily determine whether or not your skincare products are USDA Certified Organic. Knowing this information is important, as USDA Certified Organic products are of the highest quality and contain fewer chemicals and preservatives than non-organic products. So, make sure to do your research and use only the best products for your skin!
