What Does “Organic” Really Mean?

Hello Our Lovely RW Readers.

Often times we get  this question of “Is Organic Skin Care Really The Best Option For Me?”

Or “Why should I Use this brand over another or this ingredient in opposition to another?”

Not to worry, we broke it down for you.

First, what classifies a product to be “organic”?

A: Organic produce, product, and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Animals that produce meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones.Therefore, this being said when a product is claiming to be “organic” it is stating that it carries classifications held to the above standard. If the brand is saying they are a “natural” brand, this could be an entirely different meaning. “Natural” just is a true marketing term and means it may or may not use organic ingredients and or essence oils from plants or fruits, but does not mean it is purified and can have fillers such as dimethicone in the products.

Okay, so what products do you suggest I use if I want to purchase “organic” skin care and why?

A: The answer to this could be unending truly, because we are fans of so many different classified “organic” skin care brands, however a tip top favorite of ours is Amaki Skin Care”. Amaki is a very simple line and it good to introduce yourself to organics, because all of its ingredients are purified and extremely raw and essential to promoting skin health and elasticity. Anything in their line can truly be used for any skin type which is what makes it so amazing as an introduction to organics.

Our absolute top two favorite products they carry are:

#1 Japanese Tsubaki Anti-Aging Face Oil

Amaki Skin Care
Japanse Tsubaki Anti-Aging Face Oil
Price: $25.00


#2 Their Fantastic Konjac Sponges

Konjac Facial Sponges
Amaki Skin Care
Price: 2/$11.00

Lastly, what kind of results does organic skin care provide?

A: The answer to this varies per each person. Certain people tend to have more oily skin, therefore, hydrating oils are best for them to use at night to not strip their skin of its natural oil production and to keep it in balance and for more dry skin individuals, we suggest they use an oil both day and night. Organic oils will provide hydration and in the long run decrease aging signs and toners preserve the skin’s Ph and also just keep you feeling pretty! Honestly, our best suggestion is to just move forward and try a line you truly enjoy whether it be Amaki or another one, and see what truly suits your skin the best.
