With everyone more focused on what we put in and on our bodies, natural and organic beauty products are on the rise. Over the years, people have become more aware of what is inside their beauty products and what they are allowing to be put on their skin. As the demand for clean, natural, and organic products is increasing, the beauty and skincare companies are trying to fulfil the need. Many K-beauty brands have come up with products that are natural and organic.
But, along with this, there has been a lot of misinformation and jargon that has made the overall organic and natural K-beauty market very complicated. ‘Organic’ is something that has ingredients obtained from sources which used no pesticides, growth hormones, or essentially any extra synthetic compound. And, ‘natural’ is something that is derived from nature. The natural products are free of harsh ingredients and artificial chemicals like parabens and phthalates.
An organic natural beauty product does not mean it is vegan. It can contain ingredients sourced from animals, like bee extracts and snail mucin. Although, these products are cruelty-free as animal testing of cosmetics is now banned in Korea.
Here are the best 5 natural and organic K-beauty products that will satisfy your need for a clean and natural beauty product.
