Why do we use “organic raw materials”?
- High standards
Organic plants come from trusted sources. All organic farms are inspected at least once a year. The standards for organic food are laid down in European law.
- No nasty chemical residues
Over 400 chemical pesticides are routinely used in conventional farming and residues are often present in non-organic food. Organic raw materials are free of these nasty chemicals so you can be assured that what is touching your skin every day is as pure as the nature can produce.
- No GM
Genetically modified (GM) crops and ingredients are not allowed under organic standards.
- It's healthy
On average, organic raw materials contain higher levels of vitamins and essential minerals but also higher level of cancer-fighting antioxidants.
- Care for animals
Animal welfare is taken very seriously under organic standards. The benefits of the organic approach are acknowledged by animal welfare organizations.
- Good for wildlife and the environment
Organic farming is better for wildlife, causes lower pollution from sprays, produces less carbon dioxide - the main global warming gas - and less dangerous wastes. Groundwater also is not contaminated by the pesticides.
