How do you feel about organic cosmetics?
Beautiful with brains says: I couldn’t care less whether a product is organic or not. If it’s good I’ll buy it and use it, regardless of whether its ingredients are natural or synthetic. It does irritate me though when brands say their products are organic but in reality they are made mostly of synthetic stuff with only a couple of natural extracts to justify their claims. I also didn’t have much luck with real organic products so far. Most of them don’t perform as well as traditional cosmetics, and they aren’t safer either.
A lot of natural ingredients can be irritating and cause allergies for instance. It also isn’t true that chemicals are bad for us because anything that is made of atoms is a chemical, which means that water and plants are made up of hundreds of chemicals too. There is a lot of confusion and misinformation surrounding the organic business so in the end, I’ll just ignore the claims and stick to those products which work for me.
