Color Cosmetics and Organic Certification

I need to clarify a big misconception in the beauty industry regarding the certification from the USDA seal.

A  color line of cosmetics cannot be certified organic by the USDA if they contain color minerals.  These minerals can not be certified organic by the USDA because they cannot be grown organically.  They are minerals that are natural by origin.rms beauty does not have the USDA Certified Organic Seal because our line contains colored minerals, therefore cannot be certified.  BUT…the other ingredients used in rms beauty are certified organic by the USDA.”Certified Organic” by the USDA is for skin care lines and food, as they do not contain color minerals.  In addition, the US has no real certification for Organic Color Cosmetics.
