Organic is only a matter of marketing

It's wrong ! Real organic should not be confused with greenwashing. Many brands are surfing this wave hoping to encourage purchases. They highlight an organic ingredient on the label. However, the composition of the finished product does not meet the criteria of organic labels and always contains the same ingredients harmful to health.

Organic products are more expensive?

It is a small compensation for products richer in taste and in contributions. That said, many families find economic tips without their shopping basket blowing their budget.

On the other hand, organic cosmetics do not cost more because, as in conventional cosmetics, there are low, medium and high-end products. In fact, there is L'Oréal like Chanel;-).

There is less choice in organic products

It's wrong ! Go for a walk in an organic store and you will be surprised at the variety that is available to you and that you will not find in the supermarket shelves. Still, the fruits and vegetables offered are in season. And for cosmetics, brands are developing more and more flowery, fruity or fresh fragrances to delight the most demanding.
