Natural Vs Organic: whats the difference?

Natural Vs Organic: whats the difference?

People tend to conflate the terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ when referring to products.

In our case - natural refers to products that are made from botanicals like chamomile, beeswax, shea butter and essential oils which can be highly beneficial for skin and hair (that’s what our products promise). Organic refers to products where ingredients must contain absolutely no pesticides, synthetic herbicides, or chemical NPK fertilisers—and, in the case of animal products, no antibiotics or growth hormones.

Sometimes people use one in place of the other but that’s not accurate because a product can be natural without being organic, and vice versa. Also, natural products can contain specific organic ingredients, in which case you should read the packaging or product label in more detail so you understand how exactly a company has used the term ‘organic’. People always ask us if our products are ‘truly organic’ because they have confused the terms natural with the term organic. Our products are 100% natural because they are made from botanical ingredients - that is our promise to you but except stated, please note that natural does not = organic. For example our carrot oil is made with organic carrots grown at @tinwotorganicfarm but because the oil has other ingredients that are not organic, the finished product (carrot oil) is not considered organic.
