Organic vs. Chemical

Organic ingredients are grown without the use of conventional pesticides, artificial fertilizers or sewage, and are processed without ionizing radiation or food additives. Increasingly organic production of food and animal products are requiring producers to obtain certification in order to market as organic, however, the use of the term organic is widely used without any certification or authentication in the skin care industry.

All Yüm products are listed in INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) compliant format, which is necessary to make a product acceptable for entrance into international markets and sale in the United States. INCI names are generally the Latin names and English counterpart or the proper scientific name for all ingredients found in our products. INCI provides a standardized description, however, it does not provide information on the source of the ingredient. The source is as important as the ingredient itself as there are often several ways to obtain an ingredient, some naturally others synthetic. Wherever possible we have selected naturally occurring - or natural source ingredients.
