WHY USE 100% ORGANIC ?
There’s a lot of misinformation out there. A lot of people think that “Organic” is a trend. It’s a lot more than that. For us it’s a question of information. I believe if you’re a conscious human and you're made aware of the information i.e. you become aware of the chemicals used in beauty products, or the chemicals used to grow that perfectly round apple for your local supermarket, or you become aware of the cruel practices applied in factory farming, then you have to change course and make more informed choices.
Let’s look at the difference between Organic and Natural.
Natural: Legally, this means nothing—it's a completely unregulated term and should be thought of as pure marketing. It will generally mean that at least some natural ingredients have been used in the formula, but a product can be labeled as natural and contain up to 30 % synthetic ingredients. Look at the label and if the product is full of ingredients born in a lab (ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose etc.) and the only from-the-earth one you recognize is buried at the bottom, that means it's hardly natural.
Organic: The use of the word organic is actually highly regulated, and legally means a brand or ingredient has been certified by the USDA. The USDA Organic certification denotes that a product has an organic content of 95% or higher. Products with 70% or greater organic composition can be labeled "Made With Organic Ingredients." This means that products claiming they're made with organic ingredients could potentially also contain harmful synthetic ingredients. Complicating the matter are independent certification organizations, such as Ecocert and NSF, that create their own standards to which companies may comply.
The bottom line? When shopping for natural and organic beauty products, don’t take advertising claims at face value.
So, what do you get when you buy 100% organic beard oils:
- You get absolute certainty that there is zero harmful synthetic ingredients in the product
- You get absolute certainty that the ingredients were grown without using chemicals in the farming process so in a small way you’re helping in the fight to remove chemicals from the food production process
- You get access to the absolute best ingredients which means the efficacy of the ingredients will be at its highest possible level
