Q. What’s the difference between ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ products?

A. "Products claiming to be ‘natural’ include ingredients that are grown in their natural state, with the potential to benefit from synthetic chemical aids such as pesticides, herbicides and growth hormones,” says Dr Tarj Mavi, founder of La Mav Organic Skin Science. “Conversely, organic products are derived from ingredients that remain unaltered by chemical aid throughout the growing process.”

Q. What’s the difference between ‘organic’ and ‘certified organic’ products?

“Products marketed as ‘Organic’ must be grown under conditions free from synthetic chemicals, fertilisers and GMOs,” explains Dr Mavi.

“The ‘Certified Organic’ accreditation is more rigorous – ‘Certified Organic’ products must undergo extensive testing to ensure they comply with strict guidelines throughout the growing and processing stages,” she continues.

“La Mav is proudly OFC-certified, one of the most stringent certifications in Australia,” Dr Mavi tells us. “Products certified with the OFC logo must contain a minimum of 70% organic ingredients, and adhere to strict facility regulations for the processing and manufacturing of goods.”
