What goes onto your skin eventually goes into your body. If you would look out for nutritious ingredients and organic food produce for your diet, because you believe that they can give you health benefits, you should also look out for organic personal care products. After all, our skin is the largest organ, and it needs a lot of care!
Benefits of using organic products on your skin and hair
Studies have shown that chemicals like SLS, artificial colouring, phthalates, parabens, and petroleum waxes can harm the body in the long run, and some studies even suggest that they may be cancer-causing. Guess what – these artificial chemicals are commonly found in conventional beauty products. When you slather them onto your skin and hair, they are absorbed by the body.
Certified-organic beauty products avoid these potentially harmful ingredients. Besides offering a healthier alternative, they use high-grade botanical-based ingredients that are safer and can be used even for sensitive skin.
Many mothers are opting for organic products for their children because of these reasons.
Are organic beauty products more expensive than conventional products?
If you walk down the fresh produce aisle at the supermarket, it’s not difficult to notice that organic produce tends to have a higher price tag than normal produce. This could lead to the impression that organic beauty products are the same – which is not necessarily the case.
Progressive organic-certified beauty brands, such as Earth Life Organics, have been working on providing quality products whilst keeping the cost low to offer attractive prices to consumers.

How do quality organic brands keep their cost low?
Baru Walia, Director of Earth Life Organics says that the brand is able to keep its cost low by opting for packaging (including labels and bottles) that is simple and more affordable. These cost savings are then passed to the consumers – after all, what matters is the formula inside the bottles.
Besides packaging, Earth Life Organics also keeps their formula uncomplicated. “We don’t over-complicate our formula by adding in multiple botanical extracts. Less is more, sometimes having too many ingredients can cause some of them to cancel out the benefits of others. We only keep to the best ingredients that are needed to make the formula work,” Baru Walia says.
The specially picked out ingredients also make Earth Life Organics products suitable for pregnant women who usually experience some skin sensitivity during pregnancy.
He assures that the formula remains effective and of high quality. “High prices don’t necessarily equate to better quality,” he explains.
Earth Life Organics has a team that specialises in aromatherapy, homeopathy and herbal therapy. Their know-how helps them to create body, hair and facial care products that are infused with just the right amount of botanical ingredients and essential oils.
The brand has been established by experts with more than 20 years of experience in the field. The products are made with phyto-ingredients that are sourced from Indonesia, which is one of the most botanically rich places in the world.
“Because we are using some of the finest botanical ingredients, we have to make sure our extraction method preserves their integrity; we use a tried-and-tested extraction process that allows the ingredients to retain their full benefits,” he adds.
Earth Life Organics products are available at their online store, which has a simple order and delivery process, and is also hosted at Kitchen By Food Rebel located at 28 Stanley Street (in the Telok Ayer area).
