Back in the day, ‘Certified Organic’ in relation to beauty often meant sandalwood-smelling, hippy-esque homemade lotions that may have ticked all the enviro-friendly boxes, but were as far from luxurious as a pitched tent in the Outback. So if a girl wanted to go organic, well…she pretty much had to forego any notions of pampering.
Luckily, the big ol’ beauty world soon realised that enviro-friendly and ultra-feminine could co-exist (phew!) and organic brands started producing products that were not only natural, but looked pretty damn nice on your bathroom shelf too. Oh, and they also worked wonders for your skin, hair and body – did I forget to mention that?
Here are just a few of our fave organic brands doing their bit for beauties in need of a bit of pampering…
Planet Eve Organics are a range of luxury skin and body care products that are 100 percent natural and Australian Certified Organic. They contain no synthetic chemicals, no artificial preservatives, dyes or fragrances, and no GMO or animal ingredients. We love its Certified Organic Luxe Body Crème, and Certified Organic Rose Hydration Mist with Antioxidants.
Handmade in Budapest, Eminence is a natural organic skincare range designed to pamper your skin – the natural way. Sought after by many a Hollywood celebrity, its products contain the highest possible levels of all natural, organically grown herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables. We love its Blueberry Soy Repair Masque, and Mimosa Champagne Sugar Scrub.
Bloom, the connoisseurs of cute and girlie, know the importance of going natural without foregoing all things feminine. Its Organics range is prettily packaged and contains no sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals or other nasty ingredients. We love its Organic Rosehip Oil, and Certified Organic Scented Soap.
How important is packaging to you? Are you more likely to buy a product if it looks pretty?
