🌿 Démystification du Terme "Bio" dans les Savons artisanaux🌿

🌿Demystifying the Term “Organic” in Handmade Soaps🌿

Dear reader,

In the world of personal care products, the term "organic" has become a real buzzword. However, using it is not as simple as it seems. In this article, we'll clear up confusion and clarify the rules surrounding the use of the term "organic" in personal care products. 🌱

1. “Organic Soap” – A Restrictive Designation

🚫 NO , not all soaps can be described as “organic”. For what ? Because not all soap ingredients, such as soda or water, can be certified “organic”. The fundamental rule is that only raw products can bear the term "organic" if they have a certification label. For example, “organic shea butter” is a correct name.

2. Organic Labels – An Essential Requirement

🚫 NO , even if your product has a label like Cosmebio, you cannot just add "organic soap" on the label. Organic labels apply to raw products, not processed products like soaps.

3. “With organic argan oil” – A Valid Mention

YES , you have the right to indicate "with organic argan oil" on the label of your product, even without having an organic label. This means that the argan oil used is certified organic. However, make sure your argan oil supplier has an organic label on their side.

4. “100% Organic Ingredients” – An Amazing Reality

YES , even without an organic label for your finished product, you can say "100% ingredients of organic origin" under one important condition: your suppliers must have an organic label for the ingredients they provide you. However, this remains rare for most processed products such as shampoos, soaps, and toothpastes.

Conclusion 🌟

In summary, the use of the term "organic" in personal care products is subject to strict rules. Processed products like soaps cannot be called “organic” even with a label. On the other hand, you can indicate that your ingredients are of organic origin if your suppliers have an organic label.

We hope this article has clarified ideas around this complex issue. Always remember to check the certifications of your suppliers to ensure the transparency and quality of your products.

Continue to take care of yourself and the planet! 🌍💚

Yours sincerely,
