Organic products are everywhere these days, so it can be difficult to tell which are worth splurging on and which are best left on the Whole Foods shelf. As a general rule, organics tend to be pricier than standard non-organic products (their ingredients cost more, so the price of the product reflects that). We asked the pros which organic products aren’t worth the hype (or the money) in comparison to their non-organic counterparts.
SaysDr. Elizabeth Tanzi, dermatologist and co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, “In my opinion, sunscreens aren’t worth buying organic, because there are many very good non-nano sunscreens with micronized zinc or titanium that sit on top of the skin (no absorption, so no potential for toxicity) and look fantastic on the skin (beautifully sheer).” She recommendsLa Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid(.50, ) andSkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50(, skinceuticals.com).
Dermatologist and founder of the GOLDFADEN MD skin care lineDr. Gary Goldfadensays body scrubs are one area where you can skimp on the organics. “Whether buying or making them at home, body scrubs are being washed off and do not need to have organic ingredients.
