Organic Cosmetics and Skin Care?

There is a revolution taking place in homes and businesses around the world. Organic products accounted for over $64 billion dollars spent worldwide every year. In Canada, over $3.7 billion dollars were spent on organics in 2012 alone.

But what does organic really mean?
How can consumers make informed decisions and separate fact from greenwashing—a practice that cares only about the bottom line?

Directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta (I’ll Follow You DownSiddharth) with executive producer Moses Znaimer and Produced by Toronto’s Sixteen Films Ltd., their documentary series Organic Panic tackles all sides of the raging organics debate. Over the course of 5 episodes, Organic Panic pits organic “Believers” against organic “Skeptics” in a battle to win the hearts and minds of concerned global citizens.

In 2016 statistics shows that 57 percent of U.S. women feel it's important to buy all-natural beauty products. The number of young people buying skin care products is also growing steadily. Research predicts that the trend-driven global market is projected to be valued at $21,776.9 million by the end of 2024.

Men and women have similar ideas when it comes to natural/​organic beauty products and personal care. The three most important things for them were the price, that the products are not tested on animals and that the products are BPA-free.

BPA - Bisphenol A is found in the hard plastic bottles many people use every day. It can imitate the body's hormones, and it can interfere with the production, secretion, transport, action, function, and elimination of natural hormones. BPA can behave in a similar way to estrogen and other hormones in the human body.
