In recent years, more and more women are inspired idea to use in cosmetics more organic compounds. If you too are planning to go on cosmetics labeled "organic", it is necessary to understand some of the features of such funds.
1. Organic cosmetics have a specific smell.
For those who first encounter with soap or cream labeled "organic ingredients", a new sensation can be unexpected. Some ingredients smell nice, and some will have a smell that is difficult to reconcile with the notion of "flavor".
First, a pleasant. Organic cosmetic products may be flavor of honey, herbs, flowers, fruits, perfumes light (due to the presence of natural essential oils).
However, you can surprise and new taste sensations, such as the smell of fermented foods and even a little stale fish. Some products are organic cosmetics really smell awful! Therefore, it is better to find out more in the shop than the smell means. And if the smell does not fit - do not buy, because to get used to some new smells and feel of the skin is not always possible.
2. Consistency of other organic compounds.
It will take time to get used to the new tactile sensations. Organic detergents, such as shower gels, shampoos, liquid soaps, do not contain aggressive sulphate (labels are often labeled as the SLS / SLES / ALS), so they are not very good lather and less emulsion than with conventional detergents .
Many impression that organic shampoos are not very well washed hair. But it is not. Such representations are due to the fact that you will not feel the usual abundant foam on the hair.
3. Organic formulas have a shorter shelf life.
This fact can be considered as positive, ie confirming that the composition of the most natural. However, this is a huge and negative. After all, the average shelf life of organic product - no more than 6 months. Of these 6 months the product for some time lying on the counter, and then at home ... As a result, the fact that the benefit from the fresh and natural filling, we only have a couple of months. And for such a short life span favorite cream will have to get used to.
Organic cosmetics do not contain preservatives, such as parabens, which explains their long life is not.
4. The range of organic cosmetics are not as extensive as that of conventional funds.
Despite the fact that the number of brands of organic cosmetics is growing, but the number of proposals remains practically unchanged. There are a wide range of assets that are not yet covered by organic brands, such as nail polish, most titles makeup, styling hair products.
Therefore, even finding a favorite brand, you can not switch completely to organic, it is necessary to combine with the means of the usual brand.
5. Organic cosmetics has faded pigments.
In organic brands rather meager list of ingredients that can be considered as natural dyes. The same applies to the reverse side of the issue - to the white cream, for example. Natural bleach also not yet been invented. It turns out that, on the one hand, you will be surprised brownish tint some creams and, on the other hand, disappointed enough bright colors (if it is a shadow or lip balms). Although detergents often pleasant shade as herbal or fruit extracts have a pleasant natural shades.
6. The organic compounds may also be allergenic.
It is a myth that organic cosmetics does not irritate the skin, so it is suitable for women with sensitive skin. Rather, this is not always true.
Many preparations contain essential oils, which are allergenic for sensitive skin. There are types of skin, it does not take some botanical ingredients. So, one can not fully rely on the labeling "organic product" should be aware of the individual response to any components of cosmetics.
7. organic cosmetics is not cheap.
Unfortunately, many organic compounds are more expensive than usual. Here we compare the available marks, of course. Cosmetics premium is not taken into the comparison.
8. Organic cosmetics packaged in glass.
It usually. This approach can also be considered from the "+" sign, and the sign "-". On the one hand, the glass is the most preferred form of packing, because it is toxic plastic. On the other hand, transparent glass, and may break, and therefore requires careful handling. In general, the glass packaging - it is rather a limitation, because we have no choice in this case.
9. Not all organic cosmetics can be called 100% organic.
Standard organic products calls exactly which products have the right to put its products on the icon "organic". Organic products must be kept free from synthetic emollients, humectants synthetic, synthetic emulsifiers, synthetic surfactants, synthetic preservatives, artificial colors. As you can see, the rules are quite strict. And in the world there are very few products that can themselves be certified as organic. Typically, this brand with a worldwide reputation, the known logos and names (for example: Lush, The Body Shop, Natura Siberica, L'Occitane, Melvita, Organic Shop). Therefore, to buy 100% organic cosmetics, not worth the risk and the word for advertising. It is necessary to examine whether, armed with recommendations cosmetologists, and only then can you become the owner of a jar of natural means.
