About Organic

There is so much written on this topic and a lot of it can be more confusing than clarifying. Here is a brief overview of why it’s a good idea to switch to using organic and natural beauty products, as well as links to some informative sites to help you understand things better.

Is Beauty Skin Deep?
Three facts you may not know:

DOWN THIS PAGE:
- positive benefits of organic
- environmentally sound
- avoid harmful ingredients
- links to helpful sites

bullet
Your skin is the body’s largest organ, with over a billion pores.

Experts tell us over 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body.

Women's bodies can absorb up to 5 lbs of chemicals per year from using conventional beauty and personal care products

Skin Care = Skin Food. More or less. In other words, if you wouldn’t eat it, then why would you put it on your skin? Or your family’s skin? As we pay more attention to our food, we should pay more attention to our skin’s food.

Organic Vs. Natural
Organic does not mean natural, and vice-versa. Organic means that the ingredients are grown without toxins, chemical pesticides or herbicides, using sustainable farming practices. The soil is rich in natural nutrients and the farmers use renewable resources. Organic ingredients have higher levels of antioxidants and nutrients particular to that ingredient.

At Beautorium, we have explored the globe to bring you brands & products that meet the highest standards of organic personal care.

Natural means the ingredient is just that. Natural. But that doesn’t mean it is organic, or organically grown. Lavender can be natural, but grown using pesticides, for example. We avoid ingredients that aren’t from natural, certified organic sources. If something is grown Biodynamically, it means that the oldest, most holistic methods of organic farming are used.

 - Third Party Trusted!
