Over the past few years, we have seen a growing movement towards natural and organic skin care, hair care and sunscreen products. These days, we are so focused on living clean, and being as healthy as possible on the inside, that it makes perfect sense to want to incorporate that same attitude towards our personal care practices on the outside.
Do you know the difference between “Natural” and “Organic”?
“All-natural” means that the ingredient is derived naturally from a plant, animal or mineral source. “Organic” means the ingredient is free from hormones, pesticides, preservatives or any other potentially harmful or synthetic agents that may alter the final product as it grows in its life cycle. On organic products, you will see a label with a certification symbol which means that the product has complied with all regulated government and/or ecological agency standards.
Many people ask us why some Natural & Organic products tend to be on more expensive than others.
Like any skin care link, those that use high grade natural ingredients, other than mass-produces alternatives tend to be expensive to source, store and formulate, which is why we pay a premium for these products.
At Etiket we offer many different brands of carefully selected and effective skin and hair care products. For those that do want to take the all-natural and/or organic approach, we have selected natural & organic brands that are about delivering results without the extras you may not want… those preservatives and sometimes harsh, irritating ingredients. These products are ideal for sensitive skin, pregnant women and those with a desire for all things natural. We are in the process of delving deeper into this relatively new genre of skin and hair care and will continue to seek out new and trusted and worthy brands that meet our high standards.
Below are some of the skin-care products—all organic, 100% Natural or containing a high concentration of natural ingredients— that we carry at Etiket
