Means...Only Safe, Natural Ingredients are Absorbed
Every ingredient in every Miessence organic skin care product is listed on the labels along with the logos of the international certifying bodies.
This is your guarantee that these certified organic skin care products contain only pure and natural certified organic ingredients. NO ingredients are left off the labels. Therefore, Miessence organic skin care products are classed as certified organic and comprise the first fully certified extensive range in the world.
For Your Protection and Peace of Mind
Entire Miessence Range of 115 Skin, Bath and Body Products
Miessence skin care range is the only extensive one in the world to be certified organic by independent third party certifiers. Developed in Australia the product range is certified organic by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) to the highest international organic food standards.
The ACO, Australia’s largest Organic Certifying Body, is accredited to certify organic operations in Australia, Europe, Japan, USA, Switzerland and the UK. The ACO is a division of the Biological Farmers of Australia Co-op Ltd. They set and maintain stringest quality standards that are internationally recognised as either compliant with, or exceeding, all international requirements.
All labels on certified organic skin care products must also display the name and physical address of the business. Miessence complies.
Following is some basic information regarding cosmetics and skin care products. This is included to help alleviate the widespread confusion regarding the term 'organic' and allow you to make an informed choice when purchasing skin, bath and body products.
Also included are links to read more about my special introductory packs of Miessence products. (For New Zealanders. Residents from other countries please check HERE.) All ingredients are listed and products are available either by online or offline ordering. Currently, no charge for shipping within New Zealand.
And Skin Care Are The Least Regulated Products
Most countries follow a similar trend. Whether it is moisturizers, foundations or deodorants, skin care products are an essential part of our daily living. But, do we really know what our body and facial skin care products actually contain? What are we are forcing our skin to absorb?
For 3 decades radio, television and newspaper advertisements have brainwashed us into using more and more chemicals on our skin. Chemicals which can cause allergic reactions and/or contribute to long term illness.
Have you ever suffered from skin disorders such as:-
Consider HRT and nicotine patches. These rely solely on skin absorption.
Years ago I could never understand why some
folk had allergic reactions to lanolin.
What the customer isn't told is that the sheep have probably been dipped (submerged or sprayed) with chemical pesticides to rid them of lice. As a result your skin care product may be contaminated with carcinogenic pesticides such as DDT, dieldrin or lindane.
Unless the lanolin is purified traces of the pesticides remain and are easily absorbed by our skin. (How many labels have you found stating purified lanolin?) Your other option is to obtain skin care products using lanolin from registered organically farmed sheep.
Cosmetic Ingredients Listed on Labels
One universal legal requirement is...cosmetic ingredients on labels must be listed in descending order relating to the quantity in the product. This means a top listing indicates the greatest amount and a bottom listing indicates very little is included, eg if water or 'aqua' is listed near the beginning you can guarantee the product contains alot of water.
Many ingredients may measure less than 1% therefore they do not have to be listed. It is interesting to note, however, that often healthy sounding ingredients like herbs and botanicals are included on the labels even when they measure less than 1% but no mention of chemicals under 1%. Be aware of such marketing ploys. I've personally tried 2 NZ made ranges containing under 1% synthetic chemicals. One doesn't advertise the fact, the other did. In both cases I awoke with puffiness around my eyes.
Chemicals are listed under their chemical name usually as that is exactly what they are - chemicals. Some manufacturers use trade names for chemical ingredients further adding to the confusion for the consumer trying to decipher exactly what is in their skin care product.
Unless products are certified organic there are no rules for the terms, 'natural, organic, non toxic or pure.' It is acceptable for individual manufacturers to use these terms how they wish. More confusion for consumers.
The Term '100% Certified Organic Skin Care'
Misleading information regarding use of the term 100% certified organic abounds. Skin care products are often advertised as having 100% certified organic ingredients. There may be only one certified organic ingredient but due to the way some products are promoted it is easy to think the entire product is certified organic when it is not. As an example - organic apple juice with no other ingredients may be classed as 100% certified organic apple juice.
Non organic essential oils are sometimes being included in so called organic products.
