The Soil Association announced September as the Organic Month and launched the Campaign For Clarity, throughout Organic Beauty Week - 14th to 21st September 2015.
Unfortunately with no legislation in place, it can be confusing and misleading when trying to purchase products that are truly organic from those with the claim but little natural origin.
And this campaign aims to educate and encourage people to be careful and properly informed, when buying.
During Organic Beauty Week Twitter TakeOver will take place to promote the benefits of choosing organic in your skincare products.
Wendy Stirling - founder of Botanicals - is sharing few tips on how to select real organic products:
- select products with certified key ingredients;
- check that the percentage of organic ingredients is higher;
- see if the company has won any award for its commitment in the field;
- research how the product is made; often in smaller batches and greater quality;
- organic skincare doesn't need to be more expensive than luxury brands but are safer and kinder to the skin.
To round up this post, I'd like to talk about the latest product that I've been using.
The Botanicals Orange Blossom Body Balm is an outstanding skin moisturiser that nourish and protect the skin.
It contains a blend of shea butter, apricot kernel, jojoba oils, neroli, patchouli, bergamot and sweet orange essential oils that give it its exotic scent, inebriating for the senses too; these ingredients derived form active plants promote the skin's natural ability to heal and regenerate.
The balm doesn't feel greasy at all and melt into the skin - its conditioning properties make it the perfect ally for post-holiday skin; it helps calm irritations, protects skin from flaking and leaves a beautiful sheen on your sun-kissed skin.
Botanicals is a multi-award-winning natural organic skincare brand and the Orange Blossom Body Balm is 89% organic and 100% natural!
You can get yours on www.botanicals.co.uk and Botanicals is also running a series of September offers.
