I actually love Jane from British Beauty Blogger’s little Organic ‘rant‘ this morning, she makes some good points, when I went to the re-launch ofÂ Inika Mineral Makeup we discovered that the world of “Organic” beauty is very deceptive, although much more tightly controlled in Australia (as usual), in the US and Europe it is a bit more loose so I’m trying to get some more info so we can see how Ecocert measures up, will update the post when/if I can!
