Why Organic & Natural Products?
Why Natural Cosmatics?
Everyone uses them daily: Cosmetic products. Whether you use shower gel, shampoo or make-up, it all comes into contact with our bodies. But what do we actually know about the ingredients of the products and the effect they have on our health and the environment? A plea for natural cosmetics:
Micro plastics:
Micro plastic is a microscopically small plastic material with a size of under 5mm. It comes in use as an abrasive, a filmogen, a filler, but also as a hardly visible binder in liquid form. Nowadays, micro plastic can be found in nearly every conventional cosmetic product. This causes devastating consequences! Through our outflows the cosmetic remains get in our sewage systems. Sewage treatment plants aren’t able to filter out the microparticles, this way micro plastics find their ways into the environment and the oceans. As a polymer, micro plastic attracts environmental toxins and is been eaten by birds and fishes as though it would be food. This way it doesn’t only destroy our important ecosystems, but also it is extremely harmful to human beings as it is been consumed by them too.
Aluminium:
The antitranspirants, which are contained in deodorant, consist partly of aluminium salts. These aluminium salts shall impede perspiration. Permanently clogged pores are extremely unhealthy to the body, they can cause skin irritations and itchiness. But they also get under your skin: aluminium salts are nerve-damaging and toxic to reproduction. They are also associated with Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer, further they harm the bone development. According to the German Federal Office for Risk Assessment (BfR) the tolerabel maximum of absorption of aluminium is already reached by our intake of food.
Surfactants:
Surfactants ensure the liquidation of fat and dirt in water. They are made from the rare resource mineral oil. According to EU-Regulations, surfactants must be biologically degradable, but this only concerns the surface degradability not the final degradability of the surfactants. This way surfactants get into our waste water, are hard to eliminate and exhibit toxic effects on aquatic organisms. Surfactants also can be harmful to human beings: They dry out the skin, they irritate the mucous membranes and increase the vulnerability for allergies and rashes. The penetrability of our skin is being increased by surfactants so that pollutants can easily penetrate.
Parabens/ preservatives:
Parabens are to be found as preservatives in conventional cosmetic products. Parabens are suspected of being hormonell effective. They don’t only deposit in the human body, but also they are suspected of causing diabetes, infertility, breast cancer, testicular cancer and prostate cancer. If you want to buy cosmetic products without parabens you should decide for certified cosmetic products.
Fragrances:Because of the common beliefe that to be clean you have to smell like roses, chemical fragrances are often used in conventional cosmetic products. Mostly they are declared under the name of „Parfum“ or „Fragrance“. The unpleasant truth behind those names is they cause allergies, they are cancer-causing and they are mutagenic. They even can be evidenced in the mother’s milk. Ecological „Bio“ perfumes from natural trademarks relinquish chemical fragrances. GO BACK TO TOP
Why Organic Food and Drink?
Conventional agriculture leads to damage to the environment, to the climate, to the soil fertility, to the animals and last but not least to the human being. To get agriculture sustainable, you have to destroy the current system in which we are producing our nourishment. That ist exactly what organic farming does.
Pestizides:
Crops, fruits and vegetables from conventional agriculture often contain high levels of pesticide residues. Which is not only toxic for the environment but also to the human be-ing. By eating products which are contaminated with pesticides your body can get seri-ously harmed. Organic farming refrains from using such pesticides, so that the environment and the health of animals and human beings aren’t damaged. 2011 the organization Greenpeace discovered, that the chemical „Ethephon“ is been used during the cultivation of paprika. To the human body „Ethephon“ ist like nerve poi-son. The German federal agency for consumer protection cautions against bunches of grapes: Over ten different pesticides have been found on the fruit. Also a big problem with groceries, which are produced in conventional agriculture, ist that they are often imported from outside the EU. There are much more vague regulations es-tablished concerning the use of pesticides than there are in the EU. That’s why those products are often contaminated with pesticides which aren’t allowed in the EU. Conventional vegetables showed 2014 a 320 times higher exposure with pesticide resi-dues than organic vegetables. Everyone who wants to live healthy needs to start buying groceries cultivated by organic agriculture.
A much better dealing with soils, waters and plants is organic agriculture - it is the sustainable alternative.
Ecological and „Bio“ :
Steht auf einem Lebensmittel das Wörtchen “Bio“, heißt das, dass keine künstlichen Stoffe in die Wertschöpfungskette einfließen, was mit dem Wort „ökologisch“ gleichzusetzen ist. The „Bio“-label on a grocery means that there are no artificial additives in the value chain that produces the product, which basically means the same as ecological. “Bio“ is a pro-tected term regarding to groceries in Germany. Attention: Unlike „Bio“, terms like „quality good“, „natural cultivation“ or „controlled cultiva-tion“ aren’t protected terms. Mostly they serve to confuse the consumer into thinking she or he is buying a sustainable product. When someone wants to name their product „Bio“ they have to stick with the EU-regulations for ecological agriculture: Natural cycles must be respected, the health of soils, waters, plants and animals must be supported and energy and natural resources must be used responsible. The high animal protection standards of the EU must be fol-lowed and the cultivation of the groceries must occur through a process which doesn’t harm the environment.

Someone who uses „Bio“- Food and Drink doesn’t only do good for herself or himself, but also for animals and the climate. GO BACK TO TOP

Why Natural Drugstore?
Conventional cleanser and polish contain a large pallet of harmful ingredients, which have an impact on our waste water, the environment and last but not least on our health. Doesn’t sound very „clean“, does it? Organic drug store products represent an alternative to those harmful products. They can be eliminated much more easily by nature.
Surfactants are washing-active substances, which allow a connection between fat and water, so that dirt can dissolve in water. Conventional products rely on synthetic surfactants, which are made from the limited resource oil. The EU-Guidelines for biodegradability apply, but they only concern the surface degradability not the final degradability of the surfactants. This way surfactants get into our waste water, are hard to eliminate and exhibit toxic effects on aquatic organisms. They also can be harmful to the human being: They dry out the skin, they irritate the mucous membranes and increase the vulnerability for allergies and rashes. Organic cleansers on the other hand use a variety of ecological alternatives which can be easily eliminated by nature.
Synthetic fragrances don’t clean, they are just toxic for aquatic organisms and very hard to eliminate once they found their way into the environment. They can cause long-term damages on the environment. Organic cleansers forego those synthetic fragrances. Preservatives shall prolong the shelf live of the product. In conventional products the synthetic variants contain formaldehyde which can cause nausea, breathing problems and cancer. They enrich in the environment and have toxic effects on our ecosystems. Product manufacturer of ecological cleansers substitute those synthetic preservatives with environmentally friendly alternatives such as alcohol, critic acid and lactic acid.
Bleaching agents
shall remove unwanted discolorations. Sodium perborate which is used in this process is a highly toxic one. Sodium hypochlorite which is also an integral part of bleaching agents, irritates the mucous membranes and has extremely bad influences on the environment. Bleaching agents always remain in our clothes and therefore they can cause allergies. If you don’t want to harm yourself and your skin you should go for ecological washing agents which do without bleaching agents.
And don’t forget: Less is more!
The Best way for protecting you and the environment is by using less cleanser! Summing up you can notice, if you want to clean environmentally friendly you should go for ecological cleaning products. They only use renewable raw materials which don’t harm the environment. GO BACK TO TOP

Why Organic & Natural Mother & Child Products?
A growing awareness rises within the society about eating healthy. Especially for fledgling parents, as they just want the best for their child. Unfortunately, by now it is nearly impossible to say, what is „the best“ for the child with conventional groceries. They deceive wherever possible.
Infants:
Baby food is often declared with the information: „From strictly controlled contract farming“, which ist often confused with: „From controlled ecological farming“. Contrary to ecological farming pesticides can be used, which causes chemical residues within the baby food. Thanks for the ecological farming from which „Bio“ baby food comes from, it contains no chemical residues, so you can feed your child with a clear conscience.
Often ist the product promoted with the label „Without crystal sugar“ so parents come to thinking the product would be free of sugar. Instead they fall back on other sugar forms like sucrose und glucose. „Bio“ products restrict themselves on using the minimum of sugar and fat.
If you want to feed your child naturally your aren’t supposed to buy conventional products. Baby food made from milk contain often ingredients made from genetic engineering. If you want to avoid that, you should decide for „Bio“ food.
If you want to keep your ecological footprint as small as possible, you should also decide for „Bio“ products, as the ingredients are locally grown and therefore avoid long transport routes.
The World Health Organisation classified sausages as cancer-causing! For meat is falling further into disrepute more and more parents feed their children vegetarian. But attention: Infants need six times more iron than grown-ups do. vegetable gruel and mashed potatoes can be upgraded with oats.
Children:
Colorful groceries and neat comic figures shall appeal to children. Particularly children need many nutrients and a balanced diet. Products like that contain mostly no nutrients but a lot of sugar. A market check by foodwatch showed: Children are often raised to be „junkfood-junkies“.
Because of the much higher sales you can get by selling sweets, conventional producers prefer those products instead of fruits an vegetables.
Who wants another child to suffer for the chocolate we give our own children? No one! Even expensive trademarks are using the cheapest employees, which are children. „Bio“ and „Fairtrade“ labels guarantee that there is no child labour behind their products. Also they relinquish using pesticides, which is not only good for the health of our own children but also for the health of the employees on the farms. With Organic & Natural Baby & Child Products you set the right base for your little ones and don't forget the environment and fellow human beings. GO BACK TO TOP

Why Organic supplements?
„If you are on a well-balanced diet, you don’t need food supplements.“, is a well known statement. But in fact it isn’t that easy: There are many different opinions on what has to be in a well-balanced diet. Further, often there is a lag oft time between a long workday and going to sleep, which doesn’t leave us much time to cook balanced.
Vitamins:
Vitamin Preparations should be consumed carefully as the dose of vitamins ist often way to high. If you choose instead ecological „Bio“-food-supplements you are on the save side as their production is much better controlled. It is often impossible to eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. In this case a vitamin preparation can be useful, but it shouldn’t substitute a well-balanced diet.
Some people who are on a special diet can’t get around some of those food supplements: As a vegan there is almost no way you can consume enough Vitamin B12, that's why a vitamin preparation is reasonable for vegans.
If you spent most of your day inside and you don’t see much daylight, you should fall back on a vitamin D supplement!
Getting regularly a full blood analysis can help you choosing between the preparations.
Further Organic Supplements:
Because of long transport routes our fruits and vegetables have to take, and because of handling processes which contain heating, our food loses most of its vitamins. Ecological „Bio“-food-supplements have nothing to do with chemical preparations: They come from nature, they are grown pesticide freely and provide the human body with vitamins he wouldn’t get otherwise.
The micro algae Cholera supports the body in a natural way: It keeps our blood clean and protects the liver and the cell walls because of its high dose of chlorophyll.
Wheatgrass contains 60 times more vitamin C than oranges, 11 times more calcium than milk and 5 times more magnesium than bananas.
Linseed oil contains multiply unsaturated fatty acids, especially Omega 3 fatty acids and therefore it prevents cardiovascular diseases.
As you can see: Ecologically and naturally grown „Bio“-food-supplements are quite useful and also very healthy! Someone who decided to go on a special diet, like a vegetarian or a vegan, or someone who is interested in a well-balanced diet in general, is likely to find a great helper within those supplements for staying healthy.
