Why Natural & Organic?

Posted on in Why Organic

We all know the benefits of eating home cooked, organic foods - fewer toxins, no genetically modified ingredients and more flavor. Choosing organic beauty products brings the same advantages, with naturally effective treatments for skin, hair and body that feel great, smell delicious and work in harmony with skin's natural functions to promote health and radiance...

Most experts agree: when it comes to skincare, the purer the better.

Advocates of organic products in particular argue that, since they contain a higher concentration of natural actives, and hence a closer affinity to the skin's own make-up, they are better able to support the skin's natural processes of cell renewal, hydration, oxygenation and protection....

What is Organic?

Posted on in Why Organic

If a product bears an official 'certified organic' stamp, you can be confident that the majority of its ingredients (at least 95%) have been grown and processed according to strict, government-controlled, organic agricultural standards, and then verified by a third-party certifying body.

Organic agricultural standards do not allow for any use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, sewage sludge, or....

The US government does not mandate safety studies of cosmetics.

From the FDA website: "The regulatory requirements governing the sale of cosmetics are different from those that apply to most other FDA-regulated products. Under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), cosmetics and their ingredients, with the exception of color additives that are not coal-tar hair dyes, are not required to undergo approval by the FDA before they are marketed in products sold to the public. The FDA generally regulates these products after they have been released in the marketplace."

We all know the benefits of eating organic foods and using organic cleaning products in the home—fewer toxins, environmental responsibility, saving natural resources and more. The same is true for your skincare and makeup. Organic beauty products effectively work in harmony with your skin's natural functions to make you look and feel your absolute best. And they work! Consumers in Europe have bought into organics–Lavera holds 1/5th of all natural skincare sales in Europe—and they are certainly increasing in popularity here in the U.S. as consumers are learning that what you put on your body can be just as harmful as what you put in your body.

Are all Lavera products natural and organic?

Posted on in Why Organic

All Lavera products are made from 100% natural ingredients in accordance to the strict BDIH standards in Europe, such as plant extracts and essential oils, and wherever possible those ingredients are sourced from certified organic agriculture. Where a product is not all-organic, it is primarily because year-round availability is not available of certain organic ingredients, or the ingredient is not available at all from organic source. BDIH certification requires use of organic ingredients wherever possible.

Lavera clearly labels its ingredients so that it is possible to see at a glance if a product is organic, or meets other criteria such as being suitable for vegans. Lavera's organic products are marked with a star and bear the BDIH stamp of approval.

Furthermore, Lavera products are entirely free of synthetic fragrances, chemical preservatives and petrochemical derived ingredients. All products are designed for and suitable for sensitive skin.
