Although Organic Beauty products have been around for some time (we celebrate our own ten year anniversary this month), until recently finding advice and information about which products were well-received, new legislation updates and tips was not always easy. Often it meant considerable research which meant that for many, Organic and all its benefits remained a bit of a mystery.
Over the last eighteen months we have seen a real shift in this through the advent of the Green Blogger. Educated, informed people with something to say are setting up blogs purely to talk about the power of organic and their experiences. Whilst this means some mis-information on occasion, we have found some truly inspiring individuals passionate about the use of clean, environmentally friendly beauty. From Anti-allergy advice to trained make-up artists using organic products on their clients we are thrilled to see so many people turning to a more natural approach in their skincare and lifestyles.
We have had some wonderful mentions and reviews over the last twelve months and been introduced to some really inspiring bloggers so in the spirit of sharing we have listed five we think every Organic enthusiast should know about – share yours in the comments!
