The global organic skincare market was valued at $3,004 million in 2014, according to a report from Grand View Research. The organic body lotions market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 18 percent from 2015 to 2022.

“I think the use of organically farmed ingredients is something that is incredibly impactful,” says Laurel Shaffer, founder of Laurel Whole Plant Organics. “There is valid research that if the scales tip to a certain point towards organic farming that global warming can be reversed.” While buying organic is something most health- and eco-conscious consumers strive to do, it’s not always possible with certain ingredients.

However, it is getting easier as more manufacturers focus on offering organic formulations. “We only use certified organic ingredients, and we source them as close to our studio as possible, thus reducing our carbon footprint considerably,” says Shaffer. “We actually help develop smaller organic farms in our region and help teach them how to grow our ingredients to prevent us from having to source them from other continents when they already grow so readily in the California climate.”

Eminence Organic Skin Care has long been known for its organic products. “Then came the science and technology boom—products were developed in labs with man-made ingredients and produced in large quantities to be shipped around the world,” says Boldijarre Koronczay, president of Eminence Organic Skin Care. “Now, we are seeing a shift back to local, handmade, organic skincare that delivers incredible results. The knowledge gained during the science and technology boom is now applied to organic fruits, herbs, and vegetables, maximizing their potency in topical application.”
