The chemicals used to manufacture many popular skin care products may contain harmful ingredients that can be absorbed into the body. These ingredients include toxins such as phthalates, lead and parabens, which, according to the Breast Cancer Fund, “…have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors.” Fortunately, as we become more aware of what we put in, and on, our bodies, the demand for organic skin care products is growing.
According to the USDA, for a skin care product to be labeled 100% organic, “Product must contain(excluding water and salt)only organically produced ingredients,” and to be called organic, 95% of its ingredients need to be organically manufactured. Goods classified as “made with organic ingredients” must be made with at least 70% certified organic ingredients.
