Sustainable beauty is very trendy today and probably every woman has already tried some organic cream. But do you know the difference between natural, vegan, herbal, bio and organic cosmetics?
Advantages and disadvantages of green cosmetics
Cosmetics are undoubtedly loved by every woman. We have our favorite products that we like to return to, and then there are those that interest us either because of the packaging, a recommendation from a friend, or an advertisement, and we simply want to try them. The trend of recent years is the so-called green cosmetics that attract with their connection to nature, gentleness to the Earth but also to our skin.
Green, i.e. natural, vegan, herbal, bio and organic cosmetics contain extracts from various herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables, oils, honey and minerals without the use of chemicals. But be prepared for the fact that many really high-quality natural creams, masks, shampoos, and decorative cosmetics are not exactly cheap fun and you will pay a lot more for them.
Going with the trend
Today, the most famous cosmetic companies around the world place great emphasis on the best possible composition of their products, ecology, gentle production, but also sustainability and they are gradually changing their usual procedures. They want to be as eco-friendly as possible, that is, to burden nature as little as possible, but at the same time to provide the skin with everything it needs.
The women themselves, who desire such cosmetics and are at least a little interested in them, look at the lowest possible use of plastic, recycling of cosmetic packaging, but also whether the cosmetics have been tested on animals, or what they leave the company’s carbon footprint during production and import.
Smart women notice the labels EcoCert, Organic, NaTrue, BIO, CPK and others on the packaging. It is a sign of international certificates, which mean that the cosmetics do not contain artificial dyes, preservatives, synthetic fragrances, and the company really thinks about our planet during production. If you notice a small Leaping Bunny on the packaging, it means that it has not been tested on animals.Photo galleryPhoto gallery
