More and more of us are choosing a conscious lifestyle, one that is good for both people and planet. Being mindful about what we’re putting on our skin is just one of the areas more of us are focussing on. ‘Organic’, ‘Natural’, ‘Free from’, ‘’Vegan’ are all becoming frequently used buzzwords with ‘Organic’ the biggest beauty buzzword of the moment. But what does that really mean? And how can you tell if a product is truly organic?

There is currently no legal standard in place for organic cosmetics in the UK, meaning that any brand can make organic claims on packaging without needing to contain any organic ingredients. Organic Beauty and Wellbeing Week is all about clearing up this confusing and debunking any myths. The week's ‘What I’m Made Of’ campaign highlights the importance of being able to choose organic ingredients.

There is lots going on this week to help raise awareness, so here we’ve put together our top picks of the weeks events, workshops and general happenings!

Stay tuned for Acala content as well to help you get grips with skincare ingredients and labelling, as well some cheeky discounts and giveaways to celebrate the week.
