As many people turn to organic alternatives for their food and household cleaning items, they are discovering that there are more things that they can do to enhance green living. It’s no wonder that organic skincare products and organic makeup are hitting the mainstream in 2016.

There are more and more brands popping up. Small, artisan, green and independent brands are catalysing the movement of organic into the mainstream by not only giving consumers a greater choice in the marketplace, but also filling the gaps in the beauty industry. Be it in terms of price points or beauty solutions, these brands are finding their space and offering consumers a wide variety of choices.

A key indicator of just how well organic is performing is the fact that you can walk into almost any supermarket and buy a natural or organic beauty product, as well as department stores, hip fashion independents and multis, and even online stores aimed at young, trendy things. It’s safe to say that organic has made it.

Is this just a fad? We’d hazard a guess not. We believe we are seeing a paradigm shift from fast-paced technology-fuelled, fast-food, fast-living lifestyle to a more simplistic way of life. Even in the city, people are searching out their quiet, happy tranquil places and spaces, be it the great outdoors, a yoga mat or taking time to create.

Formula Botanica is a driving force behind this movement, for not only do they champion the use of natural and organic ingredients, they also give formulators all the necessary tools to go forth and create their own beauty business; the formulation knowledge is just a part of it.

They embrace the concepts of simplicity, skin foods and use the finest organic botanical extracts in formulations. Studying with Formula Botanica gives people the opportunity to run their own cosmetics business; the chance of a new start, a chance to address work/life balance and make their work something they love.

Formula Botanica encourage their students to be proud of preservation, and strongly encourage formulators to preserve all skincare products adequately. Thankfully this is now the law in most countries that have adequate cosmetic regulations, but there are still many formulators out there who believe that selling an unpreserved water-based cosmetic is better and healthier.
