Many high street skincare products contain synthetic chemicals whose long-term effects are unknown. These include parabens, petro-chemicals, synthetic alcohols, DEA/MEA/TEA, petrolatum and isopropyl, along with many others linked to various ailments.
In contrast, organic health and beauty products do not contain harmful chemicals, artificial additives, genetic modification or pesticides. All the companies listed below are committed to organic principles. They offer everything from natural skincare products, hair shampoos, organic soaps, lotions, toiletries and bath salts to herbs and nutritional supplements.
Like most of the links on this site, you'll find new and exciting products not available in shops or other outlets!
"Now that I've got kids, it's become really important for me on the health front to try to buy as much organic produce as possible." — Jamie Oliver, UK celebrity chef, in BBC Good Food magazine
