What You Need to Know About Organic Products
In recent years everyone converses upon the usage of organic products as well as the consumption of organic fruits and vegetables. More merchandizers have also advertised rapaciously about how organic and natural their products are. What does organic really mean? Why do so many products claim themselves to be natural? Let us simply understand this concept more.
What is organic?
In simple terms, ‘organic’ refers to a specific cultivating and manufacturing process. By definition, under such horticulture conditions, farmers are not allowed to apply any synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, etc. Organic products indicate that during every step of their production process, including the plantation and application of raw materials, manufacturing, packaging, etc, the outcomes should not be harmful to the human body nor cause permanent damages to the environment and ecology. For any brand to obtain such official certifications, strict examinations and high transparency with various institutions are necessary and expensive, therefore, many manufacturers and producers are reluctant with such claims.
The criteria required by different countries or institutions vary, for example Europe’s ECOCERT demands the ingredients to be at least 95% natural and 10% organic while France’s AGRICULTURE BIOLOGIQUE insists the ingredients to be at least 95% organic. Other institutions are Australia’s ACO and USA’s USDA.
Many products in Hong Kong claim their products are “purely natural”, but is “natural” guaranteed good and healthy?
“Natural” has a very broad meaning; products may lack preservatives and contain unprocessed natural extracts or have some natural ingredients. Therefore, products, which are labeled as natural, can be slightly processed and involve some chemicals. Such unrealistic claims may mislead consumers in selecting products, which don't match their actual needs. This explains why some ‘natural’ products may still cause skin irritation.
Apart from ‘natural’, other declarations such as ‘no chemicals’, “harmless’ etc have similar connotations. In general, such claims cannot 100% guarantee that the products are beneficial to the consumers so it is best and safest for consumers to select brands with certifications of international recognition.
As Hong Kong doesn't have a strict regulated legal requirement of such connotations, products claiming to be natural or organic may include very little of such ingredients. Some merchandizers may even use such wordings as selling points to attract buyers amid the small quantity of natural ingredients, thus, it is best to observe the list of chemical names of the constituents and review the possible negative effects they may have on your body.
The choice of organic?
In the past, a consumer’s choice of products is often related to the product’s effect and price. However, such practice has changed over time. Nowadays, consumers focus more on the long-term impact of the products and for this reason the trend of organic consumption has become very popular.
But why isn’t organic consumption a key trend yet? We believe in the following…
Majority of consumers expect quick results once they have used the products and most existing products also emphasize such concepts eg one spray for immediate result or recover youth in just a week etc to attract the attention of the consumers. The constitutes of the natural and/or organic products are often milder in effect and would normally require a much longer time for the results to appear.
