Society is moving towards organic, Should I?

By 16 March 2018

Demand for organic products is increasing at a double-digit rate. This is a result of consumers being aware of healthful items. In India alone, the organic food market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 25% during 2016 – 2021. Even the government seems to be making efforts to popularize the adoption of organic food items. But one might argue that GMOs are not essentially bad, and they are somewhat right in their argument. But when you choose to go Organic, you are not just opting for a healthy life for yourself, but also for the planet.


Better for you and the planet


Organic foods mostly have higher nutritional value than the conventional food. The reason is that in the absence of pesticides and fertilizers, plants boost their production of the phytochemicals or bioactive extracts (vitamins and antioxidants) that strengthen their resistance to bugs and weeds. While there are levels in conventional food that are safe for most of us, there are studies that have linked pesticides in our food to everything from headaches to cancer to birth defects.

Organic farming reduces the use of chemicals significantly, which in turn does not pollute the underground water. This creates richer soil that aids plant growth while reducing erosion, according to the Organic Trade Association. When organically produced items are used to manufacture products, such as skin care, those products are essentially low on chemicals. Which makes these products bio-degradable and they do not pollute our environment. Most of these products are not even tested on animals.


Why choose organic skin care products


The products that are manufactured using the by-products of organically or naturally grown food items are termed as organic and natural products. The use of organically grown food items automatically reduces the amount of chemical in a product because the chemicals used in GMOs are not ending up in it.

It goes without any question that the natural and organic products are better over synthetic products any day. Synthetic products include harmful chemicals such as preservatives, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic perfumes, and artificial colouring. While, organic skin care products have healthy and essential oils, organic and biodegradable ingredients.
