What are organic, vegan beauty care products?
If you very often hear about organic cosmetics and vegan cosmetics and these terms seem very familiar to you, understanding them and deciphering their universe is actually less obvious! Organic and vegan cosmetics are often confused with so-called "natural" cosmetics. However, a cosmetic product based on natural active ingredients is not necessarily certified organicor vegan.
To qualify as organic and vegan, beauty care products have to meet very specific criteria:
When a cosmetic product is certified organic
- It must be made from natural raw materials from theOrganic farmingIn other words, it is produced in a way that respects the natural environment and does not contain any traces of synthetic chemical ingredients, GMOs or even pesticides. In other words, there is a clean sweep of components that can alter the good quality of the skin and the environment. Silicones, parabens, synthetic polymers, but also mineral oils and waxes are discarded to make way for components that allow the skin to breathe.
- It has no Neither dyes nor synthetic fragrances.
- It's packaged in recyclable, biodegradable packaging.
When a cosmetic product is vegan
- This means that it is free of components of animal origin and guarantees that no ingredients have been tested on animals.
If for some women, organic and vegan cosmetics are simply perceived as a fashion effect, for others, they are more akin to a real awareness and a new way of life. The key? Knowing how to choose the right products for your skin.
What's the best way to choose the right organic, vegan products?
For the more experienced among you, you can go to the INCI list(International Nomenclature Cosmetics Ingredients) which lists all the ingredients present in a cosmetic formula. To find it, it's not a wizard: it appears on the packaging of all cosmetic products . But unfortunately, it is not always easy to decipher, except for those who remember their Latin lessons!
The second option is to refer to the main existing labels in France that certify that your care is organic and vegan! Again, these appear on the packaging of your products, and certify that the rules of manufacture and composition have been respected.
What about PATYKA?

WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC, VEGAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS?
There are several reasons why many consumers have chosen to favour organic and vegan cosmetic products. The ingredients, their manufacturing process and their packaging are three factors that make their impact on the environment very limited: heavy and polluting chemicals are no longer used and the compositions have no harmful repercussions on fauna and flora .
But organic and vegan cosmetics are also better for the health and beauty of the skin. Formulated without chemical ingredients and without substances of animal origin, they are not occlusive, have no endocrine disruptors, and do not clog pores. By choosing natural, organic and animal-free ingredients, the final composition is closer to the components naturally present in the skin. In other words, they are more easily assimilated by our body!
