Your skin is the largest organ in your body and much of what we place on it will be absorbed into our bloodstream. So it seems to us, it’s just as important to avoid harsh chemicals and go organic as it is to choose to eat organic.
The Soil Association is Britain’s largest and most recognisable trademark for organic produce and it sets one of the highest and most comprehensive organic standards in the world. This is what they have to say about organic beauty products:
‘Unlike organic food, there is no legislation that requires an organic beauty product to be certified. This means that anyone can make an organic claim, no matter how the product was made and how much organic material it actually contains. For example, the product could be 1% organic and contain a number of ingredients which we would not permit but could still be labelled as ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ in its branding.’
At Green Tulip we make sure everything marked as organic has been thoroughly researched. We share all this information in our ethics section, enabling you to make an informed choice. Here is a small selection of our organic beauty products- perfect for a gift or as a little treat for your hardworking skin!
Organic Beauty at Green Tulip
Emma’s Organic Relaxing & Balancing Cocoa Butter Soap is very soothing, with natural emollient properties for softening the skin. The cocoa butter is pressed from the cocoa bean giving a gentle chocolaty aroma, and the essential oil combination of orange, geranium and sandalwood relaxes and balances the mind, and gives the skin a feeling of deep softness. It comes beautifully wrapped and ready for giving in pink spotted organic cotton with chocolate brown raffia ribbon. It is hand made in Devon from natural ingredients.
All Organic Surge products are certified natural and organic by Eco-Cert, the very first certification body to develop standards for “natural and organic cosmetics”. We really love the heavenly scent of the Lavender Meadow Shower Gel.
Living Naturally products are 100% vegan, natural, organic and ethically sourced. They are also free from SLS’s, parabens, mineral oils, artificial additives and fragrances. The ingredients used in the soapnut soap and liquid soap ranges are certified by EcoCert and The Soil Association. Try the gorgeous Chamomile & Marigold Botanic Liquid Soap.
With all of these gorgeous organic beauties in your bathroom, you will need a cosmetic bag with a little organic style! Try our Keep Leaf range of pretty and practical organic cotton toiletry and make up bags. These are certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The aim of GOTS is to define requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the consumer.
Recent years have seen a massive growth in the organic skincare and beauty markets- at Green Tulip, you can rest assured that we will always check that our beautiful organic gifts are genuine. So, go on- treat your skin!
