When a product is labeled as organic, the product contains at least 95% organic ingredients and is labeled with an accredited body; if the label is made of organic when there is more than 70% of the ingredients from organic and this case is not stamped by the organization. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the labels on the products to choose the most suitable. Many people are confused between natural cosmetics and organic cosmetics: These two are completely different, because organic cosmetics need to ensure that the percentage of organic ingredients is within the allowable level and there are many standards to evaluate. And natural cosmetics do not, so sometimes they only contain very few natural ingredients. So don't just look at it as a natural product to choose with the desire to use it safely. To choose the right organic product, it is necessary to check the ingredients to see how much natural ingredients make up because sometimes products that are not labeled organic but have a percentage of natural ingredients over 70%.

A cosmetic is labeled as organic when it meets the standards. However, it is not easy for a cosmetic to meet this standard, because some chemicals need to be used, if the content is too low, the effect is not guaranteed. So pay attention to choose the right product you want, don't just look at advertisements or inaccurate information.
