Let’s start with the fact that up to 70% of what you put on your skin is absorbed. That fact alone should make you think twice about what you put on your face and body.
Now let’s add to this conversation that there are no ‘standards’ or ‘regulations’ when it comes to claiming a product is ‘Clean’ or ‘Natural’. Some companies make claims that their product is ‘Natural’ – just because they have one or two natural ingredients. What about the rest of the ingredients that are getting absorbed into your body?
Also there some companies that claim their products are ‘Clean’ which means it is free from chemicals or toxins. But that doesn’t mean the product doesn’t contain synthetic ingredients. Again – what you put on your body gets absorbed which would include those synthetic ingredients.
Here is why you should look for and choose Certified Organic Skincare products. Some beauty products will have SOME organic ingredients, and therefore they call their product Organic. However, you should look for the USDA Organic Certification symbol on the bottle. The USDA-Organic certification ensures that any product with this certification is made with at least 95% ingredients that were grown, harvested, handled and packaged following strict standards. And this process gets audited!
So that is why you will see at RAACINE we stand behind the USDA Organic Certification, as we are proud that we can bring such a high standard and integrity to our product line for our customers. And Certified Organic actually means and stands for something!
