My experience with organic cosmetics is not too great. I have oily skin and everything I tried organic is making it even oilier . However I try to read the list of ingredients and to stay away from the bad stuff and still looking for the clean organic way Smile Still not sure how can i replace retin-a and vitamin c Wink serums ....

Generally I prefer more natural products - oils are great for me, but my skin is dry and I do look for those that sink in nicely. I'd rather not put excess chemicals on my skin (parabens for example).

Whatever works. I have such picky skin and while I can use oils; there is a lot of products I cannot use.

I also not sure how to duplicate sunscreens and prescription products. I do choose cruelty free whenever possible.

I see I am the 6th person to vote for "whatever works." I guess we're a group of gals who really appreciate results. Laughing

I would love it if everything effective could be organic, natural,and sustainable. But sometimes that just isn't the case. I want the absolute best for my skin, and sometimes that means using synthetics.

Thanks everyone! This is so interesting. I thought more of you would support organics. I suppose the perfect option would be organics + super effective non-toxic high tech!

Whaterever works.
Although I must say the "chemical"-free stuff fails me, performance wise. From time to time I get this idea that it would be great for me to use simple and natural body products, you know, the rumors that this or that chemical is harmful, even if it's not true, why risk? And the natural stuff smells less obtrusive and nauseating. Problem is, I'm very spoilt, apparently. Because to date, no natural product has performed like I would like them to. Sad I get nice smelling hand creams that dry hands out and shower gels that fail to remove stuff like non-water resistant sunscreen. For face I want at least some performance and fabled plant juice does deliver exactly NOTHING (e.g. REN, Juice). I sometimes envy people who claim they can have great skin with Dr Hauschka and similar brands, but I'm not one of those people and I don't know those people personally either. Wink
Not saying that the high tech stuff is less error/fail prone, most of it is overpriced poo, honestly, but all my HG so far are galaxies away from organic and natural.

Ollie you can check a product's toxicity in this database: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ Some products are not found but when they are, the info provided is very interesting.

I've heard this more than once. Maybe younger generations are happier with organic because they need less performance... I don't know your age but I'm just remembering that all the people I know who are happy with organics are in their 20s, and I've read studies which say that organics are more popular among young adults.

True enough, younger people usually think they can get away with some almond moisturizer just because they don't have spots or wrinkles YET. Bad Grin But I tend to believe that dermaroller Dr when he says even children in kindergarden could use some topical antioxidants to undo the damage that starts deep inside skin and shows up decades later (but he also sells Environ, so he's a bit biased).
And then of course the advertisments don't make choosing easy either, organic/natural side likes to poopoo everything that isn't organic/natural and 20-somethings disgruntled with drug/department store offerings (so much dookie there!) fall for organic/natural. Young people usually don't have the faintest idea how to read ingredient lists and how to interpret them.

I go whatever works, but certainly we must be careful about the ingredients and see if there are something that might cause bed effects on your skin or health in the long run. And I must say staying here at EDS, I learn a lot from members' sharing. Thank you.

Organic does not mean anything to me. Poison created by nature is also organic. From my experience, non-organic products have been the most effective.
