Certified Organic Skincare Brands in India

The beauty world is being flooded with products claiming to be either natural, organic, ayurvedic or herbal. Do you think just labeling their products to be natural or organic is enough for the product to be actually ‘natural’ and safe for us to use? Whatever products we apply on our skin gets absorbed into our body and can cross our bloodstream, so it’s important to make sure that only the best ingredients are used in our skincare products. Whenever we buy a product we need to make sure to see the ingredient list. It’s disappointing that many of these so called natural brands do not show transparency in their ingredient list and mention only their active ingredients. It makes us think what harmful chemicals they would have added as preservatives that they do not tell us. Going completely organic can be a little complicated as you will have to try various products to see if it suits your skin type as natural ingredients can be quite strong. And cost might also be an issue as most of these brands are quite expensive. But all these can be worth the effort in the long term to prevent further skin damage.

After an intensive research, here is a list of Certified Organic Skincare Brands that holds at least one of the certifications given by accredited organizations.

1. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA Organic) is committed to promote organic agriculture. In order to be USDA Organic Certified, certain organic standards have to be met by the product from farm to table which includes the source of the raw materials to the livestock practices. They conduct inspections and residue testing to maintain the integrity of organic products.

2. Introduced in 2003, ECOCERT was the first certification body to develop standards for Natural And Organic Cosmetics. ECOCERT is one of the highly regarded international organic certification which originated in France and have been recognized throughout the world now. ECOCERT Standard imposes that a minimum of 95% of the total ingredients come from natural origin.

3. NPOP National Programme for Organic Production. Implemented by The Government Of India, NPOP involves providing standards for organic production, promotion of organic farming and accredition programme for certification bodies. The NPOP standards have been recognized by the European commission and Switzerland as equivalent to their country standards.

Apart from these certifications, PETA certification has its own value for declaring brands that do not involve any animals and are against animal testing. Simply put, a brand certified by PETA is cruelty-free.
