Beauty products – How ‘organic’ are they really?

Did you know that it's the Soil Association’s Organic Beauty & Wellbeing Week?

To celebrate, Ethical Consumer have put together a list of the 68 certified organic brands covered in their recently updated beauty guides.

Their list will help you find certified organic products. Many products on the shop shelves claim to be ‘natural’ or ‘organic’, while containing zero organic ingredients.

This is because, unlike organic food, there are no legal standards for using the terms ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ on beauty products. See our beauty list to help you shop organic.
