This or That Organic Versus Plant-Based

While the FDA does not regulate the use of the term “organic” on cosmetic or personal care products, the terms “100% Organic” and “Certified-Organic” are regulated by a number of different certification entities around the world, each with its own standards for certification. For example, in order for a product to qualify to feature a USDA organic seal on its package, at least 95 percent of the product’s contents must be organically produced.

The term “plant-based” is not regulated in its use on cosmetic and personal care products. It is generally used to mean that the product’s ingredients are derived from plant sources, like vegetables and fruits.
