There is a steady increase in the demand for organic products not just in food, but also in cosmetics and personal hygiene products. These days, many people are beginning to see the benefits of going organic for their health and the environment.

One of the companies leading the all-natural bandwagon is Organi. In the Philippines, blogs and reviews often give organic companies like Organi a thumbs-up. Many people cite the benefits of using all-natural ingredients for their skin, which include gentle exfoliation and cleansing, as well as non-usage of hazardous chemicals that could affect the environment. However, there are other advantages you should know as well. Here are some things you need to know before making your organic leap.

No preservatives

Organic makeup and skincare products are known to have shorter shelf lives because they don’t have the preservatives commonly found in conventional cosmetics. Organic makeup uses natural preservatives, but they don’t work as well.

Limited color variety

The absence of artificial dyes means limited color variety and in some cases, non-waterproof makeup. The limited variety of colors might be a downside for makeup enthusiasts, but the use of non-toxic chemicals makes it worthwhile.

Not everything “organic” is truly organic

Many businesses are starting to market their products as “organic.” However, do not be deceived and always check the label. Truly organic products do not have parabens, PEGs, or sulphates. You should also know the difference between organic, natural, and all-natural ingredients as these all have slight differences.

Higher price

Organic beauty products cost way more than the usual drugstore makeup. However, there is a price difference when you compare organic products to other big name cosmetic brands. In the end, it is up to you to choose which one fits your budget; but only organic makeup uses harmless ingredients that can give you beautiful skin and does not harm the environment.

Going organic is something you could do not only for your health but also for the earth. Why not make the switch now?
