whats the difference between natural skincare products like verissima and organic ones?

and where can i get natural skincare stuff in lutterworth

Beware of companies that claim they have "natural" products. Be sure to check out their ingredient list and that will tell you if it is truly natural, or if it’s just a couple natural things mixed with a bunch of petro-chemicals. Some big chemicals to look out for that are classified as toxic are:
Mineral Oil
Petrolaum
Methyl, Propyl, Buytl and Ethyl Parabens
Imidazolidinyl Urea and Diazolidinyl Urea (AKA: Germall II and Germall 115)
Propylene Glycol
Retinyl Palmitate
Soduim Lauryl/ Laureth Sulfate (SLS or SLES)
Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
Magnesium Silicate (TALC)
Diethanolamine (DEA), Monoethanolamine (MEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA)
Formaldehyde
Quaternium-15
Isopropyl Alcohol
Artificial/Synthetic Colors (labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and number)
Artificial/Synthetic Fragrances (labeled as "Fragrance")
PVP/VA Copolymer
Stearalkonium Chloride
Phthalate(s) – Common Names: DEHP, DINP, DBP, DEP, DIP

Those are just a few of the thousands of toxic synthetic chemicals that our goverment allows manufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products to put into their products.

To answer your question though, truly "natural" products have 100% natural ingredients (ingredients that are not synthetic and that are derived from the earth) and NO chemicals whatsoever. A couple good companies that stand up to their claim of having all-natural products are Aubrey Organics (www.aubreyorganics.com) and Terressentials (www.terressentials.com).

One of the definitions of Organic is: of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food or products produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides.

Hope this helps. :-)
