How to Recognize Natural Organic Skin Care Products

Natural organic skin care products are increasingly becoming popular with sales projected to breach the US $13 billion mark by 2018. At this point, 32.1% of sales are cornered by Natural Organic Skin Care Products and if such a trend continues, it will translate to US $4.1 Billion in sales by 2018. The largest consumers come from the United States, Japan and Germany probably because of the high household income in those countries. However, rising incomes and the very high population of income from China and India will most probably elevate the two countries to the top of the market. Cosmetic companies will probably be wise to establish a strong foothold in those countries and embark in aggressive marketing campaigns. Other countries that are good targets of companies engaged in Natural Organic Skin Care Products are those who are culturally inclined to lean towards organic solutions. Asian countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand have strong potentials to become large consumers of natural organic products.

Organic skin care products are becoming popular mainly for its safety, hypoallergenic properties (compared to the traditional ingredients) and cultural reasons. Some people observed that the skin react better to Natural Organic Skin Care Products. People that have allergic reactions to cosmetics also observed that they are fine with natural and organic compounds. The second reason why organic products are becoming popular is that some traditional components of synthetic products have been found or feared to be carcinogenic. Thirdly, some cultures like the Japanese have long believed in organic solutions and therefore, the world can expect a rise in sales of natural and organic compounds to rise within the next few years.

Recently, some industry insiders observed that just about any cosmetic manufacturer can label their products “Organic” due to the lack of official FDA definition. Some people have also been quoted to have checked their supposedly organic lotions and found out, much to their horror, that it contains synthetic and potentially dangerous chemicals.

However, one need not fear much, just read the label and it would be easy. Chemical sounding ingredients are most probably synthetic and may be further verified by typing it on the search engines. Results should be able to tell what exactly those ingredients are and if it is potentially dangerous to the human body. The ingredients of Natural Organic Skin Care Products, on the other hand, are normally recognizable for its plant sounding names like coconut oil, aloe vera, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, grapefruit seed, etc.
