WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN ??
Basically People LOVE to throw the word ORGANIC around and many have NO idea Whats involved and if they are TRULY selling or buying Organic or not. I see people selling "Organic" with The words "Processed", "refined", "Fractionated" or DEODORIZED in the same sentence .. CLEARLY Refined & Fractionated can NOT be in the same sentence! LOL, I hate to laugh, But organic means NOT MODIFIED , which totally Blows that out of the water! Seeing this ALMOST lights a fire under my skin when SOME OF US SELLERS Really BUY CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS!
If Certified ORGANIC INGREDIENTS ARE USED , Theirs ALWAYS a Seal! At Tubbilicious We TRY to Buy CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS whenever Possible. When WE make a claim that our products are Organic & Natural They ARE! We ALSO Use NATURAL ingredients, Which are from the Earth in that NATURAL STATE! Nothing is used to turn that ingredient from its ORIGINAL NATURAL STATE As in DEODORIZED like our Our Shea Butter, mango butter etc. They are 100% natural & Unrefined. What is refined?? Well Refined, fractionated, Processed even Deodorized ALL mean They have been MODIFIED And are NO LONGER IN Their NATURAL STATE and DEFINITELY Not ORGANIC!
We Definitely Use Several SYNTHETICS, BUT, We make sure Its SAFE, & We Also make sure We Are Educated on the products & Ingredients We put out!We DO However use Fragrance oils that Are NOT organic or natural , But safe synthetics. WE DO USE NATURAL & CERTIFIED ORGANIC ESSENTIAL OILS & buy them from suppliers that ONLY BUY ECO FRIENDLY!!
❤In addition, we buy eco friendly!! We do not buy any oils which have been grown with the use of pesticides, as pesticides easily seep into the soil and damage the natural balance needed to sustain healthy growing conditions. We source 1st distilled oil, thus retaining maximum therapeutic value. Essential plant oil loses it's therapeutic value with each additional distillation cycle, so the key to a highly effective product is to limit the number of distillation cycles to one. Unfortunately many companies distill oils several times to increase the QUANTITY of essential oil produced even though that means lesser therapeutic value to the customer and an inferior product.Most of all, We DONT use the word ORGANIC as the "cool" thing to do! When We say its Organic,or ORGANIC is used, Its Simply because its already bought with the Seal of Authenticity on it CERTIFYING it ORGANIC!
We are NOT claiming ORGANIC Verses Synthetic is Better one way or the other, Many Synthetics are Perfectly fine to use & Fun as well! Thats what creates such wonderful scents & such a wide variety. BUT we Dont want to try to mislead anyone either. TRUTH in ADVERTISING IS IMPORTANT!!!! If you can not be honest in what your selling, maybe you shouldn't be selling it! The harsh FACT IS, CERTIFIED ORGANIC COSTS A TON !! Many Sellers Use the word ORGANIC In order to raise prices which makes this VERY HARD on SELLERS That DO USE THE REAL DEAL! Example.. e Buying a certain oil in 5 lb costs $9.99 when buying lower quality or "processed vs CERTIFIED ORGANIC Costs $85.00 !! THIS IS WHERE I FIND A PROBLEM... Obviously, when buying the higher priced Quality you NEED to charge more. OR People Will CLAIM organic and sell for dirt cheap when in fact IF they were Selling CERTIFIED ORGANIC its simply next to impossible or you already KNOW your taking a loss.
The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows: See This Link for A VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND CHART On IF what YOUR receiving Is Truly ORGANIC! .http://www.organic.org/home/faq
Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
Hopefully This has made SOMEBODY a little more aware of sellers NOT being honest or even uneducated Sellers ( I had to learn too) ! DONT SETTLE FOR LESS!!! GET THE QUALITY YOU PAY FOR!
Until Next Time ~~ Tubbi
