Certified Organic Ingredients
Not just certified organic skin care ingredients – vital and strong as well.
You may think that the term ‘certified organic’ automatically denotes superior quality.
‘Certified organic’ simply means that no synthetic chemicals are used in the soil.
It's not widely realised, but no organic (or natural) certification requires proof of the quality of ingredients used.
However, to Simplicite, the highest quality of herbal extracts (and other ingredients used) is paramount.
Way too many ‘certified organic’ and ‘organic’ ranges are made from herbal extracts and other ingredients that are dead, lifeless and of absolutely no benefit to skin.
By contrast, David Lyons, respected naturopath for more than 35 years and Simplicité formulator, is meticulously discerning when he chooses his ingredients.
“It's a given', says David Lyons, “that we source certified organic herbs (typically OGA certified organically grown) as well as those that are picked in the wild (wildcrafted). But we have another, higher standard to meet than just certified organic—the strength and vitality of these herbs. We go to a great deal of trouble to find medicinal quality, high activity herbs from trusted Australian suppliers or from overseas when necessary.”
Lyons decocts his strong and vital herbs into potent, concentrated plant extracts that are the basis of Simplicité products, teamed with high-activity, practitioner-quality aromatherapy essences and Australian bush flower essences.
After all, what's the point of any skin care - in this case, organic skin care, natural skin care, certified organic anything - unless the products work?
To 'work' means to nourish, enrich, soothe and protect skin.
This can only happen if the skin care products are nutrient rich and brimming with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and soluble vitamins - that's Simplicité products.
