Choose and invest wisely into organic Products, they works best simply because they are made with superior ingredients which are the purest form of ingredients and are totally free from any chemicals and synthetics. However, as a consumer, we often treat Natural, Herbal, Ayurvedic and Organic as one or similar products. Often, we are confused as to what is the difference between natural and organic and many of us do not understand if herbal and Ayurvedic products are same as natural products or are they something else?
Below is a simplified classification of all these categories of products so that you can make an informed choice and know what you are opting for!
Natural products are made from natural plants and minerals but the catch is, it doesn’t have to be 100% natural. Even if the product composition has only 1% of natural ingredient, the product will be tagged as ‘made with natural ingredients’ or natural product. Herbal products on the other hand are made of plant extracts, plant roots, leaves, etc. and used as per their medicinal properties. But pesticides or chemicals may have been used in growing them and hence are part of products. Ayurvedic products also make use of natural herbs along with animal extracts, and heavy metals such as gold, silver, copper, tin, mercury, and sulphur but are not totally chemical free. Organic products on the other hand, are made from ethically farm ingredients and are grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides and are certified as organic ingredients/products. They have the maximum amount of ingredients benefits inside them and are closest to nature.
