KNOW YOUR BUZZWORDS

De­ci­pher the nat­u­ral-beauty jar­gon, so you know ex­actly what you’re buy­ing

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - BEAUTY -

OR­GANIC

Grown with­out us­ing syn­thetic pes­ti­cides or her­bi­cides, plus cru­elty free and highly cer­ti­fi­able.

NAT­U­RAL

Con­tains only nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents – plants, flow­ers, min­er­als – how­ever, Aus­tralian reg­u­la­tions around the use of this word are still a bit murky, so it’s best to read the in­gre­di­ent list, too.

VE­GAN

Con­tains no an­i­mal in­gre­di­ents or by-prod­ucts, even in the man­u­fac­tur­ing process, and is also cru­elty free.

BIO­DY­NAMIC

De­vel­oped by the cre­ator of skin­care brand Weleda, this uses farm­ing prac­tices that are stricter than or­ganic and fo­cus on cul­ti­vat­ing a holis­tic and bal­anced ecosys­tem.

CON­TAINS WILD HAR­VEST

Uses plants that are grown in the wild, then har­vested. They have min­i­mal in­ter­fer­ence but can be hard to cer­tify.
