Ecolicious: Bath and Body

>> Monday, April 26, 2010

I'm not sure why, but when I think of "organic" the last thing I think of are beauty products. My head automatically goes to foods, cleaning products, even clothing, but considering organic bath and body products is just as important as all those other things.

"Organic" basically means that the product was produced in an environment free of chemicals and is regulated by the USDA. If pesticides were used, they were plant or animal based. Something that is "all natural" is also grown naturally, but may contain chemicals like those found in pesticides. If it's important to you to avoid ingesting chemicals or breathing them in while cleaning, you probably don't want to apply chemicals directly to your skin. Luckily, there's a wide array of organic bath and body products available.
