The organic beauty sector is at an all-time high, as conscious consumers want sustainable cosmetics that fit their values and promote a logistic sense of wellbeing.
The Organic September campaign made a big buzz as it celebrated all the benefits of organic farming that help sustain the health of soil, ecosystems, and people.
The Soil Association, which organized the campaign, certifies more than 70 percent of all organic products sold in the UK. They claim that if Europe’s farmers all followed organic principles, agricultural emissions could drop by 40-50 percent by 2050 while providing the growing population with a healthy diet.
Positive News reports that the organic beauty sector is at an all-time high, as conscious consumers want sustainable cosmetics that fit their values and promote a logistic sense of wellbeing.
Gareth Després, co-founder of the School of Natural Skincare, is a passionate advocate for organic cosmetics. “It’s not just about the products,” he says, “it’s about nurturing the land. Once an organically farmed ingredient leaves your body, it returns to that sustainable ecosystem and can biodegrade,” he explains.
According to Després, organic produce is often associated with a high price tag, but it doesn't always have to be this way.
According to him, it’s possible to make your one 100% organic cosmetics product for a fraction of the price. Students who take part in the School of Natural Skincare courses learn how to make their own organic beauty products that are affordable and come with many benefits.
