The world as we know it is changing. People are growing more conscious of healthy practices, diet, and lifestyle choices. From food to skincare products, from transport to construction – we are seeing this movement gather momentum in almost every field. One of the most important changes is that more and more people across the world are now opting for plant-based brands when it comes to food, skin, and hair care products, cosmetics, etc. More importantly, they are going all green, meaning that organic is the way ahead. From the best organic baby oil to organic pigment-based lip color – plant-based brands are gaining unprecedented clout.
India’s organic story
Organic foods and organic products are quickly gaining popularity in India. Baby and skincare products such as goodness.me certified organic baby lotion come with the assurance of COSMOS ORGANIC certification by ECOCERT GREENLIFE according to COSMOS Standard – one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world (based out of France). This certification guarantees that the product has plant-based ingredients and 95% of these are of organic origin (i.e. without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides). ‘Made with organic ingredients’ means that over 20% (in the case of leave-in products) and 10% (in the case of rinse-off products) of the formulae come from organic sources.
Benefits of buying from plant-based brands
Buying a certified organic product has numerous health benefits. Chemical ingredients and toxins when ingested or applied on the skin cause a toxic build-up that causes a number of diseases. Using products like organic rash cream, organic soap, organic lotion, etc. prevents this due to the use of organic plant-based ingredients.
Organic plant-based products help the skin heal and are much less likely to cause rashes, irritation, and allergic reactions.
Organic plant-based ingredients make the products rich in antioxidant vitamins. This keeps the skin youthful, moisturized, and supple for a long time. Chemical ingredients, on the other hand, strip the skin of natural oils and make it dry and patchy.
Organic products are also manufactured using a production process that conforms to the strictest environmental codes, the strongest cleaning protocols, and the most stringent quality norms. Organic certifications are reviewed and renewed annually.
Organic plant-based product brands are eco-friendly. We have already discussed the production process. What is more, is that these products are not tested on animals. This no-cruelty approach is part of the reason they are now gaining popularity.
