What does organic mean?
The Soil Association describes organic as "working with nature. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, which means more wildlife."

Dr Spiezia worked closely with the Soil Assocaition to set the standard for organic beauty products within the UK; standards that we proudly uphold to this day. But did you know, there are still no regulations that monitor use of the word "organic" within beauty & wellbeing products? So the only way to be sure you are purchasing a product that is truly organic is to look for the logo.
Why is organic important in skincare?
Your skin is your biggest organ. It will absorb what we put on it as well as being affected by what we consume. So surely if we are making conscious choices to put less chemicals inside our body we also want to want to make the same informed choices for what goes onto our skin.
Dr Spiezia recommends organic skincare as a conscious choice for a number of reasons.
- Better health: “ What we apply to our skin will interact with it. Pure organic ingredients, without nasties, will result in radiant and healthy skin”
- Natural beauty: “Beauty is a fact and a perception. Pure organic ingredients will contribute to and enhance it.”
- A sustainable planet: “What we take from Nature must go back to it. Pure organic ingredients go back without harming the environment."

One Small Swap
If you’re looking to swap just one skincare product to organic, Dr Spiezia recommends Inlight’s Face Cleanser. Cleansing is the first and most important step in any skincare routine. Our dual action balm deeply cleanses and nourishes, transforming a daily routine into a luxurious ritual for your skin.
Lily, our Lab Assistant, says of the Face Cleanser, “as a busy working mum, time is of the essence and my skincare routine is important to me. But on days when I just don’t have time to do my whole skincare routine, I will never compromise on cleansing.”
“I gently massage the cleanser all over my face and neck, letting is work it’s magic for a few (peaceful) minutes. This removes my face and eye make-up effortlessly leaving my skin feeling so velvety. When I do have time, I then follow the cleanser with the Floral Tonic and Face Oil to complete my routine.”
