Why Go Organic?

Your skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body. It is a two-way membrane. Toxins are eliminated out through the skin via perspiration and absorbed into your body's systemic circulation, through hair follicles and sebaceous glands. That means if you put a chemical compound on your skin, chances are your body will absorb it.

Most scientists agree at least 80% of the 200 different types of cancer known today are related to toxins and carcinogens from synthetic and toxic chemicals. Organic Formulations products are safe, non-cancer forming, and are good to put on your body and back into the earth.

These non-toxic, vegan-friendly, non-genetically modified organic herbal blends contain plants, herbs and essential oils that are processed in the traditional country way, by cold press or steam distillation. In addition to these products being free of harmful toxins, we do not use chemical excipiants or even the nasty industry cleaners on our machinery. Instead, we use hydrogen peroxide and vinegar to ensure no harmful residues during the manufacturing process.

There are 9 levels of organic certification. These products are certified at each level of organic and biodynamic certification.

Organic Formulations, manufacturing since 1989, offers a range of unique blends in our own brands as well as private label/contract customized blends. Organic Formulations uses Certified Organic Blends and Certified Organic Biodynamic and Wildcrafted ingredients—many that are grown on the company owned farm. Organic Formulations is a third-party Certified ACO-BFA (FOAM and USDA accredited) and NAASA, and uses no harmful synthetic or petroleum chemicals, animal products/testing ever, or any solent excipiants—you will find honest label disclosure on all bottles.

Ten reasons to go organic

The first ten reasons below are reprinted from Grow Organic No. 102 October-December 1997 Excerpted from an article by Sylvia Tawse in Delicious, April 1994 and CROPO Issue 23, July,1995.

1. To Protect Future Generations

"We have not inherited the earth from our fathers, we are borrowing it from our children" -Lester Brown. The average child receives four times more exposure than an adult to at least eight widely used cancer-causing pesticides in food. Food choices made now, determine your child's future health.

2. To Prevent Soil Erosion

Soil is the foundation of the food chain in organic gardening. In conventional farming, however, the soil is used more as a medium to hold plants in a vertical position, so they can be chemically fertilised. Soil structure is neglected and the top-soil is washed or blown away.

3. To Protect Water Quality

Water makes up two-thirds of our body mass and covers three quarters of the planet. Pesticides and other chemicals widely contaminate ground water and rivers and pollute our primary source of drinking water.

4. To Save Energy

Modern farming uses more petroleum than any other industry. More energy is now used to produce synthetic fertilisers than to till, cultivate and harvest crops. Organic farming is still based on labor intensive practices such as hand weeding, green manure and cover crops instead of chemicals.

5. To Keep Chemicals Off Your Plate

Many pesticides and herbicides were registered long before extensive research linking them to cancer and other diseases could be established. They are poisons designed to kill living organisms and can also harm humans. In addition to cancer, pesticides are implicated in birth defects, nerve damage and genetic manipulations.

6. To Protect Farm Workers

Farmers have a much larger risk than non-farmers of contracting cancer. Farm worker health is also a serious problem in developing nations, where pesticide use can be poorly regulated. An estimated one million people are poisoned annually by pesticides.

7. To Help Small Farmers

Most organic farms are small, independently owned family farms of less than 100 acres. Many family farms have been lost this past decade. Organic farming could be one of the few survival tactics left for family farms.

8. To Support A True Economy

Although organic foods might seem more expensive than conventional foods, conventional food prices don't reflect hidden costs such as pesticide regulation and testing, hazardous waste disposal and clean up and environmental damage. If the hidden environmental and social costs of chemically-produced conventional produce were added to that produce, it would be more than double the price of organic food.

9. To Promote Biodiversity

The conventional farmer uses monoculture, the planting of large plots of land with the same crop year after year. This approach leaves the soil lacking in natural minerals and nutrients, which have to be replaced by chemical fertilisers in increasing amounts. Single crops are also more susceptible to pests, making farmers more reliant on pesticides. Insects have become genetically resistant to certain pesticides and despite the increased uses of chemicals, crop losses are increasing. Organic farmers encourage natural predators on their farms and are content with a smaller harvest. They also practice crop rotation to add health and energy to the soil.

10. For A Better Taste

Organic farming starts with the nourishment of the soil, which leads to the nourishment of the plant and, ultimately, our palate. Ask the many chefs who prefer to use organic foods.
