Mischo Beauty School: Certification Standard for Beauty


It's called Biodynamic and it's a beauty certification used to certify products above the "natural" and "organic" certifications. Biodynamic is a system of natural farming dating back to the 1920's, and like certified organic farming, Biodynamic farming is free of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. But unlike the "natural" and "organic" certifications, in order to receive the Biodynamic certification a product must meet the following conditions:

- Ingredients must come from chemical-free biodynamic farms

- Processing guidelines must focus on manipulating the ingredients and materials as little as possible

If the biodynamic certification interests you, then check out Lavender Fields, Ceago Vinegarden and Harms Vineyard, Flower Essence Services and Dr. Hauschka. These are the only brands in the U.S. which produce certified biodynamic products.

Love your skin.

Woooo Hoooo! Thanks for this! I am really holistically inclined and resent having to make a choice to support too many chemical-laden products. I love that Sunsilk hair lotion I commented on earlier, but if there was a biodynamic alternative, I would be there! I know there are lots of brands, but as a person of color, I still find that it is difficult to support organic/natural/biodynamic brands for some cosmetic items (like foundation, which covers your facial skin and just seeps right in). Still searching, but thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this!

Well, I read about this and knew I had to spread the word! Are you using any "natural" or "organic" products?
