Questions From Readers #1

 What does 'organic' mean in the green industry?

It means that a products fulfils some of all of the criteria for 'earth-friendly'.  Go to Colors of Nature's Blog, which is also our company, for a list of criteria that makes a product 'green'.  It's in the FAQ section.  You may want to consider talking about our watercolor paints as well for fashion sketches, as an alternative to conventional paints which are made with synthetic petroleum products.

Organic is a method of farming; it means that a plant is grown without using synthetic chemicals.  If an ingredient in a cosmetic is 'certified organic', which is the only way we can be certain that it actually is organic, then it was farmed without synthetic chemicals.  Many cosmetics are 'certified organic' which means that most of it is made with certified organic ingredients and only has some small amounts of synthetics.  If it's 'organic' then about 70% is made of certified organic ingredients.  'Natural' means a bunch of things.  It's really about what the ingredients are.  You will notice that on our website we have a chart with ingredients to avoid.
