I advocate for only using products on your skin that you would consider eating. After many years of searching for quality products that my family can use that we truly trust, I found Poofy Organics. These are just a few of the reasons I love this company. You can read my entire post on this company here.
Because the rules differ for food and cosmetics, many people assume if a cosmetic product is labeled organic or natural, it really is. Truth be told, it’s probably not because there are no standards for labeling in cosmetics. In the food world, a company cannot label their ingredients as organic without going through the certification process. So you know when you see the organic label, they had to comply with strict standards.
From what the owner of Poofy has said many times is that the process of getting USDA-certified isn’t expensive per se (what other companies want you to believe), but rather it’s a never ending process of compliance and rules and regulations and paperwork because you have to go through a third-party to get certified. You can read her blog here that explains the process. The reason she does it though, is for her customers. That you can have total peace of mind that what you see on the label is true, that when you see “organic” it really means organic, and that the majority of ingredients are food based. Real ingredients. Healthy ingredients. Nothing. Toxic. Ever.
This company is owned by a family from New Jersey. The owner, Kristina, started making products after a family diagnosis of cancer. So when you’re supporting them, you are supporting a family business. You’re supporting real people who make the products. You’re supporting my family as we are trying to support a family of seven on less than humble means. Personally, I’m always on the hunt for families and local business and ‘made in the USA’ for things I buy.
You might find a safe product to use; however, they might be made overseas or in large batches or by machines. They might be owned by a larger company (think Burt’s Bees owned by Clorox and Tom’s of Maine owned by Colgate-Palmolive). And by the way, neither of those companies use what I consider to be safe ingredients in most of their products.
They are made by hand
Everything at Poofy Organics is made by hand. Even the makeup. (Nail polish is the only product that is not made in their facility but uses her formula). The largest “machines” they use are blenders and mixers.
Poofy employs real people who make your products every day with love. Not only do they pour the ingredients together to make the products, but then they pour the finished product into bottles and containers by hand as well. Then they label the product by hand and package your order by hand. Real people, not machines in large factories, are making the products. Your products haven’t been sitting on the shelf for who knows how long since products are made in small batches.
Not only are these products the safest you will find, but they have hundreds to choose from. In fact, the first time people see the samples I have at a party, they have a hard time believing one company does it all. I don’t know of another company, especially one that is certified organic, that can offer you the same variety. In addition to the line that’s for everyone (shampoo, soap, etc…) they offer a specific line of products for women, men, kids and babies. They also have an extensive line of cosmetics, certified-organic essential oils and oil blends, and cleaning products.
I was over the moon when I found Poofy Organics. Check them out and see the difference.
