I love using organic products whenever I can because I believe the products are more pure and better for my skin. With so many preservatives and chemicals in many beauty products, it is nice try products that are all natural. After all, before the first synthetics are invented people use all natural ingredients from food to skin care and beauty products.
John Masters started making organic products 20 years ago because he saw the need to create a luxury beauty line that treats the earth with respect and made with completely natural ingredients. His skin care and body care products are completely organic, certified organic by EcoCert, Quality Assurance International, California Certified Organic Farmers or Organic Crop Improvement Association. The products are all recognized by the Natural Organic Program for the USDA. Ingredients are wild harvested, cold pressed and steam distilled extracts and none of the products contain petroleum or non-carbon based products. John Masters’ philosophy is that organic compounds to a better job and it is better for the body and earth to simply return to the source: super natural botanicals. Presently the USDA organic seal applies only for edible food standards. It is important to distinguish that his products are labeled “Made with Certified Organic Ingredients,” and not all products are labeled “USDA Certified Organic,” because currently, there are no standards for organic beauty products. This means that the ingredients used in the products are certified organic but the product as a whole is not “USDA Certified Organic.” His goal is to have the seal on all his products as soon as a USDA organic creates a standard for the beauty industry. At the moment only a selection of his products are labeled “USDA Certified Organic.” His website lists all the ingredients used in his beauty products.
The following are ingredient guidelines for John Masters’ products:
No sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, DEAs, MEAs or TEAs
No animal testing
No artificial colours, fragrances or fillers
Ingredients must be as organic as possible
All plant extracts and essential oils must be certified organic whenever possible
All essential oils used must be steam-distilled and not extracted with propylene glycol, which kills the effect of the oils
All plant oils must be cold pressed, not heat distilled which kills the therapeutic properties of plants oils
All ingredients must be proven to be beneficial to the hair or skin
All ingredients must be harvested in an environmentally friendly manner (wild crafted)
All ingredients must be bio-degradable as possible
Fair Trade ingredients must be used when possible
I have tried some John Masters products that I really liked. Stay tuned for the reviews.
