Why choose certified organic skin care products?

Did you know that currently any skincare brand can use the word “organic” without the product actually containing any organic ingredients? We feel passionately about making sure our organic skin care products pass the certification standards and can proudly carry the Soil Association COSMOS logo. We believe that this allows our customers to shop with confidence, safe in the knowledge that our certified organic skin care products have met strict guidelines and are truly organic.

Our certified organic skin care products contain ingredients that are grown without the likes of Genetically Modified Organisms (GM), herbicides or synthetic fertilisers which may contaminate your skincare along the manufacturing journey. This ensures your skin only absorbs natural, gentle ingredients which can help reduce the chances of allergic reactions and skin irritations. Certified organic skin care products also contain up to 60% higher levels of antioxidants, therefore increasing protection for your skin. And you can be assured when you buy a certified organic skincare product that it is never tested on animals.

Certified organic skincare and the environment

At Terre Verdi, we are as passionate about the earth as we are about organic skincare. When we choose to use organic ingredients in our products, we are ensuring that they are manufactured in the most sustainable and environmentally friendly way possible. For example, all of our packaging is kept to a minimum with maximum recycled content, no synthetic dyes, fragrances or colours are used, and all of our energy and water usage during the manufacturing process is supplied.

What it means to be a certified organic skincare brand

The journey to become a certified organic skincare brand is a gruelling process, and rightly so! All levels of the business are scrutinised for quality and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. It is not only the ingredients in a certified organic skincare product that are checked. Everything from labels to cleaning products need to be accepted before an organic skincare brand can gain the Soil Association COSMOS seal of approval. Stringent checks are carried out annually to ensure that the high standards for every product are maintained. If something in the manufacturing or formulation of a product is found not to be following the strict standards, then you cannot become or stay as a certified organic skincare brand. There are certainly a lot of boxes to be ticked!

As consumers, we know how difficult it can be to navigate the organic beauty world, with many false claims of a skincare product being organic. In order for you to be sure you are buying from a certified organic skincare brand, and therefore ensuring strict procedures have taken place, always check the packaging for the full ingredients list as well as the Soil Association COSMOS logo.
