Ordinary commercial cosmetic products, which include even those that are manufactured by well-reputed brands, often contain toxic and chemically-potent substances capable of causing long term adverse impacts on human skin. Some people, in fact, exhibit immediate health problems upon use of such products. However, more and more people around the world are growing aware of the dangers of using chemical cosmetics. This has led to a steady rise in the demand for certified organic skin care and cosmetics. But what are natural and organic cosmetics and who certifies certain products to be organic or natural? Most users of natural and organic cosmetics are not aware of what the terms natural and organic refer to in the context of cosmetics. To a common person, natural cosmetics would be those that are not made using any chemical ingredients and processes. This definition may look simple, but in the world of cosmetics it is far from being clear. Natural and organic cosmetics are mostly used synonymously. There are, in fact, differences between the two. Natural cosmetics replace the carcinogenic products derived from the petroleum base. Ingredients in natural resources are obtained from plants and natural sources. In fact, products are labeled quite often as natural in many countries, including the US, even if only 70 percent of the ingredients used in them are from plants and natural sources. The products that are thus sold can have some chemicals as their ingredients—chemicals that are supposedly not harmful to our skin. Exact data is not available in India about the size of the organic and natural cosmetic products. But it is less than 5 percent of the total cosmetic market of India. — Veena Seetharama Annadanaa Chief Consultant, Organic Agribusiness Consulting “White mineral oil is a safe, effective, time-proven ingredient preferred by many formulators,” says David S. Morrison as quoted in various journals, an expert in the field of personal care. According to the US National Organics Program NOP, a natural substance is derived from a plant, mineral or animal source, without having undergone a synthetic process. Others emphasize on 100 percent organic ingredients to be classified as organic. “Organic products go one step ahead of natural cosmetics, says Veena Seetharama Annadanaa, Chief Consultant, Organic Agribusiness Consulting. She says, “Organic products are those which use plants and herbs grown organically.” Toronto-based Organic Make Up Company, which believes in 100 percent organic ingredients, defines natural ingredients as those that have not undergone any synthetic process and that are derived from plants, animals or minerals. The company includes those ingredients as natural that are refined through physical as well as biological processing. Ingredients obtained through simple technologies in use in a conventional kitchen are also considered natural by the company. The common person has taken natural and organic products as one, and the greatest advocates of the use of natural ingredients in cosmetic products have also not raised much hue and cry about this. They seem satisfied that natural ingredients are slowly replacing carcinogenic ones. They also know making organic cosmetic products is possible only with the greater acceptance of organic ways of farming.
