There is a big difference. “Organic/Natural” means low or minimal amounts of chemicals are used, and “Organic Certified” means no contact with chemicals from the beginning to the end.
“Organic Certified” ingredients are derived from organically farmed plants, processed and packaged without any chemical interference. No wonder there is consumer confusion. With very little industry regulation, beauty manufacturers can make any claim they like as long as they are not “intentionally” misleading consumers. So they might have an organic slogan or promotion but have only one organic ingredient amongst a cocktail of synthetic ones.
Viola Organics gives you the choice to say NO to synthetic chemicals.
Our products are made with organic and top quality ingredients that are produced without chemical interference; Viola Organics assures that their end product has not come into contact with any chemicals throughout the entire manufacturing process. ‘Natural’ and ‘Organic’ simply do not mean what they used to – Organic Certification delivers the promise that every single non-GMO ingredient has been processed without chemical interference and has to be certified from its origins for it to be included in Viola’s formulations.
Since 1986 we have manufactured a unique range of truly effective skin, body and hair-care products, which are made by hand in small batches and shipped direct to you fresh from our premises. This ensures their quality and potency is at its maximum.
To gain the best from our products we recommend they be stored in a cool place, away from light as this diminishes quality, and use contents preferably within 12 months of purchase.
Why Your Skin Needs Tender Loving Care…
When you consider that up to 80% of what you put on your skin may enter your bloodstream and leach into your system, it’s important to make the right choices.
Your skin will benefit more when using natural organic certified oils and nut butters rather than chemically produced skin-care ingredients. Good hydration is the key if you want to look younger than your years. Plump skin with healthy skin cells will produce a younger, more youthful complexion.
Skin cell renewal takes place approximately every three weeks when we are in our 20s. However, this slows to a renewal rate of nine weeks once we reach our 40s. We recommend the use of a gentle effective exfoliator to speed up this process.
It is important to choose your skin-care products wisely as studies have shown that natural ingredients actually make a difference to the wellbeing, rejuvenation and appearance of the skin and do not place a burden on your health.
What about preservatives, colours and fragrances?
It may be true that commercial skin-care products can smell nice, feel silky, absorb easily and keep for a very long time, but have you ever wondered what effect these substances may have on your health?
Preservatives such as methyl paraben, ethyl paraben and propyl paraben and all derivatives do prevent enzyme production and spoiling, but unfortunately when this is applied to the skin it may continue its preservative action. These additives may be taken up by your bloodstream and can be detrimental to your overall health.
Mineral Oils, which are petrochemical by-products and synthetically processed are known to asphyxiate the skin, blocking pores and preventing it from breathing. These oils are often used because they are cheap to produce and initially create a nice silky feel on your skin. Long term, the skin suffers dryness and dehydration.
Viola’s Answer: In our view, it makes so much sense to feed your skin and body with only the best-quality organic oils and natural plant extracts whenever possible. Not only are you supporting and encouraging your own health, these oils have been found to produce far better results in skin cell improvement and in fighting the signs of aging.
