Organic Uncovered; Why Organic Skincare Is The Best

Nowadays, we hear all about how organic skincare is the best and there should be no other option other than organic skincare that should touch your skin. However, it does appear that people are jumping on the bandwagon without actually knowing what an organic ingredient or what organic skincare is. Also, as a marketing gimmick, some brands do use this label casually whilst there’s no checking if their claim is true or not since there’s no regulatory body in Pakistan that gives this certification. In order to know more about organic skin care products, we need to know what is the definition of organic.


As defined by the Bare Alchemy, “The term ‘organic’ refers to how an ingredient is farmed i.e., it must be prepared and grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizers, GMOs, sulfates/parabens or antibiotics.” Naturally, if the ingredient is farmed with so much care and since it is not a part of mass production, it requires more manpower for maintenance and thus, it cost a few extra bucks. However, just because the product is labeled ‘organic’ doesn’t mean it is 100% organic.

Should We Switch To Organic Skincare?

According to a French regulatory authority Cosmbio, an organic product is the one that has,

At least 95% natural-origin ingredients out of the total product

At least 95% Organic ingredients out of all plant-based ingredients

At least 10% ingredients from Organic farming practices out of the total in the product, and 20% for products on the market since January 1, 2017 (10% for rinse-off products),

0% “risky” petrochemical-origin ingredients (parabens, silicones, phenoxyethanol, etc.).

No GMOs

Organic Vs Natural

It is a common misconception that all-natural products are organic and they’re both the same. Whilst they may appear to be the same but that is not the case every time. Here are some key differences between natural products and organic products.

Natural skincare products have natural ingredients whereas organic skincare products have stricter standards.

Everything that is natural for your skin is not necessarily good and can be highly allergenic.

Owing to the nature of natural ingredients, a dermatologist often doesn’t recommend using all-natural ingredients directly on the face as they can be detrimental to the skin.

Environmentally Friendly

The biggest advantage of organic skincare is that is environmentally friendly and doesn’t cause any harm to the earth. Mass production of the products leads to contamination of the environment with harmful ingredients. Since organic products don’t use any synthetic ingredients for their growth, they don’t leave behind a whole lot of mess to be cleaned.  So you can use a product with good conscience since you’re not causing harm to anything.

Skin Friendly

Our skin absorbs what we put on it. Organic products don’t have any chemicals or any ingredients that’ll cause harm to the skin when they’re absorbed so nothing harmful enters the bloodstream and that is one of the biggest benefits of using an organic skincare product. Here are some skin and health-friendly organic ingredients that are used frequently.

Turmeric, Green tea, Honey, Mulberry, Seasame Oil, Olive Oil, Hyaluronic acid, Ceramides, Oats, Shea butter, Carnuba wax, Glycerin, Aloe vera , Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil , Algae extracts, Argan Oil, Bisabolol, Chamomile, Vitamin E, Vitamin B3, Berries, Coffee, etc.

All these ingredients don’t interfere with the regular mechanism of the body and thus, they’re amazing for the skin. Many Organic Skincare brands in Pakistan use these ingredients in their products so it is worth it to check them out.

Good For Sensitive Skin

One of the major issues with sensitive skin is the fact that nothing suits them. It could be something incredible for people with normal skin, but when it comes to sensitive skin, it is another game since anything and everything under the sun seems to irritate their skin. Skin irritation can be seen in the form of redness, burning, rashes, and general discomfort of the skin. However, since the organic skincare brands don’t use any preservative or chemical that is not organic so the likelihood of synthetic ingredients interfering with the skin decreases drastically. Unless a person is allergic to the said ingredient itself, organic ingredients generally work very well for sensitive skin people and don’t irritate their skin nor cause them any breakouts. So, if you’ve sensitive skin, it is best to look for organic ingredients for your skin!

Use In The Past

We often find our mothers and grandmothers with amazingly flawless skin whereas our skin is nowhere near them, though we do share the same genes their secret is the usage of all-natural and organic products that have stood the test of time and have proven their efficacy.

Organic Mustard seed oil for hair is the only ingredient that allowed my grandmother to have healthy hair that cascaded down beautifully without any split ends. No fancy shampoos, conditioners, or hair treatments, just hair oiling before shower and she had hair of Rapunzel! So, it is good to take beauty tips from our elders and use what they’ve been using all their life because nothing beats the original stuff!

Worth Your Money

Organic skincare sure causes a dent in our precious saving accounts but it is actually worth the money since what you’re using is so pure and it is a form of investment for your skin. Imagine investing in organic rose water rather than mass-produced rose water, and it’ll be much more effective for your skin, making it much fresher, plumper, and softer. So, the results you get from these products are so worth the money because they’re made with the finest ingredients and your skin deserves to be pampered!

It is, however, important to note that not all organic claims are true and it is important to conduct thorough research beyond the reading of labels to see what exactly is true and if the product, indeed is organic or not. Moreover, a person can be allergic to any organic ingredient so it is also important to perform a patch test before putting anything on your skin!
