Remember our grandma’s period was all about using homemade natural products from the amazing turmeric besan face pack to the shikakai hair powder, everything was homemade and natural. Sadly, they slowly got buried with the advent of modern cosmetics. But I’m so glad that lately there is a sudden bloom of numerous startups who are willing to restore us our lost beauty recipes. Still! Keep me in mind that not all of them are natural and organic as they claim. So as I always say, you definitely need to keep an eye on the ingredient list. You could see that the terms natural and organic are used carelessly everywhere and for your information, both the terms does not mean the same.
All Organic products are natural, but not all natural products are organic. Briefly, Organic products are those in which all the ingredients used in the product are produced without the intervention of any fertilizer or pesticide and are organically grown locally in a natural way. Only then a product becomes Organic. Whereas Natural products are those in which some of the ingredients may be grown with the use of fertilizers yet it may also contain organically grown ingredients. Holding a minimum of 50% plant based ingredients qualifies a product for being natural according to ECOCERT.
Its praiseworthy that few exclusive skincare only lines are slowly bringing up products that can substitute chemical laden makeup products which does no good than harm in the long run. For those of you who are looking for natural/ organic makeup in India, I have come up with the list of noteworthy natural/organic makeup products in India from exclusive skincare only lines.
