Is everything you stock organic?
No, we stock a combination of organic and natural products. Currently, there is no legal standard a beauty product has to meet before being able to use the term organic (unlike with food). So at Little Green Home we look at the ingredients in each product individually and only stock those that use the most natural, chemical free and highest quality ingredients.
Where possible we try to include UK brands that have been certified by the Soil Association. For information on their standards for cosmetic products and textiles please see www.soilassociation.org
What’s the difference between organic and natural?
For a product to be Soil Association certified Organic (in the UK) it needs at least 95% of its ingredients to be certified organic. In some products this isn’t possible, for example those that need to use more preservatives, but if at least 70% of the ingredients are certified organic they can use the Soil Association label. They cannot, however, use the word organic in the label and must state the percentage of the product that is organic.
The use of the word "natural" is similarly ungoverned and many products that claim to be natural contain chemical additions to ingredients that, whilst begin as a recognisable “natural” product, become potentially toxic after being tampered with. A common example of this is adding DEA (a known carcinogen) to coconut oil to form a foaming agent found in shampoos.
So at Little Green Home we only sell products where the natural ingredients haven’t been altered by any chemical additions.
Please see our ingredients glossary for more information on what you can and can't find in the products we stock.
