In Canada, there are no government guidelines regulating the word ‰ÛÏorganic‰ on personal care products. There are many products on the market claiming they are organic or claiming they contain organic ingredients.
The majority of these products are NOT verified for the authenticity. Consequently, there are no guarantees that the product actually contains organic ingredients. For example, you could introduce an ‰ÛÏorganic lavender‰ oil in a 50ml bottle with the product containing only 1ml of certified organic lavender oil and 49ml of non-organic lavender oil. This is 100% legal but dishonest to the consumer who thinks they are buying 100% Organic‰Û? !
