« Charmin MegaRoll Packaging A Subtle Green Step from P&G | Main | Are Americans Willing to Reduce Packaging »

Hmmm, what about animal testing? I don't see any mention of it...has it been discussed? I'm thinking no just because of the major companies that I saw mentioned as founding OASIS companies.

The truth is that people who go out of their way to seek out organic and sustainable products are also concerned about animal testing. It would be a shame if these companies missed the point entirely of trying to live a low-impact and sustainable lifestyle.


What hair dye do you recommend? Looking for low%, peroxide, PPD, resorcinol, ethanolamine. No DEA, MEA, TEA, petrolatum, imidazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin,alcohol, or isopropyl, sodium lauryl sulphate, PVP/VA copolymer, padimate-O, methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl paraben, synthetic colours, talc and fragrance. Can you recommend anything? Not interested in henna due to lack of international growing standards. Additionally, I am allergic to birch extract.

Thank you.


Will the remaining 15% be chemicals?


I am so waiting for someone to do something about packaging. Why yet another label for ingredients when we already have the organic certified ones? Packaging is the main problem in the cosmetics industry - we really need an incentive to producers.


To the question 'will the remaining 15% be chemicals'. Generally, synthetic vitamins are not considered organic but they are beneficial. The majority of additives will probably be vitamins. Other synthetics would be preservatives because while it is possible to develop organic ones, it is also very expensive as they have to be extensively developed and tested for each formula.

Who are the 30 founding member companies of OASIS?

It is great that we have a seal to make sure that the organic makeup we are purchasing is really organic. All natural and organic cosmetics should be approved before applying to our faces.

Go for herbal

I was recommend by many netizens to use herbal natural cosmetics instead of toxic chemicals, there is no side effects after using herbal natural products.

Using organic beauty products can reduce the risk of phthalates and other harmful chemicals from entering your body. But a product listed as natural often uses synthetic preservatives and other unnatural ingredients. Natural simply means that the ingredients used have not been changed from its original state and no other substances have been added to or subtracted from it. Because a product is listed as "natural" doesn't mean that it is as natural as you think it is.
