At SairaSkin, integrity, honesty and authenticity are core values by which we run our business, and that’s why our products are certified by the Soil Association Organic and Natural COSMOS. We proudly include the logo so you can easily and quickly identify the quality, integrity and transparency of our products, then go ahead and use them with confidence.
But not all organic products are equal.
We’re all familiar with the term ‘organic’, but which of your favorite beauty brands actually are? The word is widely used these days, but ‘organic’ beauty brands need as little as 1% organic ingredients to be able to make that claim.
The trick is to do with terminology – in the beauty and wellbeing industry, neither ‘natural’ nor ‘organic’ are protected terms. Unlike the food and drink industry, where organic products must, by law, contain at least 95% certified organic ingredients, this is not the case with cosmetics and wellbeing products.
A lack of regulation means that terms like ‘green’, ‘clean’, ‘natural’, and ‘organic’ are overused and often misused. An uncertified product can be described as ‘natural’ even if only 1% of its ingredients come from natural sources! Unless they are certified, companies only have to offer minimal assurance that a product lives up to the promises on its label.
For an organic beauty and wellbeing product to carry a Soil Association COSMOS Organic symbol, 95% of all plant, animal or microbial ingredients that have been subject to basic processing must be organic.
When you buy SairaSkin skincare you can be sure that all our products are certified organic by Soil Association and Cosmos.
This means they are FREE from:
- GM (genetically modified) ingredients

We use recycled and recyclable packaging where possible, and no animal testing.
