WHAT IS ORGANIC 

SKINCARE?

BY MUDMASKY

THE HYPE 

Since 2015, the consumer rate has increased considering organic food. You can say that it is some sort of hype. This consumer rate considering organic food is to this day still increasing. The expectations of some scientists are that this ‘hype’ will likely stay among us for a long time and perhaps forever. Luckily for us when buying organic food, the USDA’s National Organic Program standards defines exactly how organic food is grown, raised and processed and which sort of materials and under which circumstances this all is allowed for it to be considered as organic. 

 

Whenever you buy organic apples you can be sure that the farmer did not use pesticides and antibiotics for your apples. The farmer only uses approved materials by the USDA. 

 

Unfortunately, this is not the same for skincare. The term organic is used by a lot of skincare companies, but the meaning of the term is rather vague. Unlike food items, consumers are not protected in the skincare industry when the term organic on an item is being (mid)used.  

 

IS IT REALLY ORGANIC?

Since there is no rule or any regulations about the term organic in the skincare- and cosmetic market, skincare manufacturers are free to label their product as organic.  

 

At MUDMASKY we find that there needs to be more transparency in the market. People should easily see if a product is what they wish for.
