It has been established for the whole European Union whether the product is an eco-labelled product or a bio-labelled product. In fact, two conditions must be fulfilled to have an eco-labelled product. First of all, this product must contain 95% components of natural origin. Second of all, no chemicals can be used during the production of this eco-labelled product.
A continuous increase in the sale of the products of natural origin has been observed for several years. We go back to our roots and traditions. It means that we start using old recipes again. What is more, we notice and appreciate natural products and traditional methods of their production. Every year there are more and more regional producers with unique products. It is hard to say that eco-products are only a temporary trend. It is true that eco- products have more and more followers.
Even if we would like to acknowledge buying eco- products to be a trend, we must admit that this trend is connected with common sense. Different kinds of scientific studies have shown many times that eco-food is more valuable than other food. Products of natural cultivation contain less pesticides and also much more vitamins and antioxidants than the conventional products. That is the reason why, eco-food is associated with health.
We pay more attention to the ingredients of cosmetics and beauty products. Buying cosmetics we take into consideration the quality and the composition of the product. We look for cosmetics and beauty products made of natural ingredients. We start to pay less attention to the brand of the product that we buy. That is the reason why, a new trend has been observed in this area of our life. It is connected with making our own cosmetics such as facial masks or facial peels from the products that we have in our house, flat or garden. Due to it, we can be sure that the products we have used are natural.
We think that it is good to have a greater focus on the products we eat, cosmetics and beauty products we choose thoroughly. It is time to pay attention to the fabrics, too. What should we remember about when we want to buy some clothes? Which fabrics should we choose when we are going to buy furniture to our house or flat? Why should we pay attention to the label with the information about the product? First of all, we should buy natural fabrics because a lot of substances in these products are absorbed through our skin. Products made of natural fibers are healthy and safe. Natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, linen or wool are friendly to our body. What is more, the process of their producing is environmentally friendly. Below we have put a description of some fabrics, which we should look for on the labels of the products.
It is often not without a reason that we look for 100% of cotton as the composition of the fabric. Cotton is a very delicate fabric. It is perfect for children, too. Cotton is also recommended for allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. This fabric has got a high resistance and a quite high hygroscopicity (a good absorbency).
Linen is the oldest natural fiber that is very well known to people. We are well aware of the fact that linen was used in ancient Egypt to the production of canvas and in the process of mummifying. Linen fibers are very perm and they do not fade or deform. Linen does not tend to pill or lose fibers. Moreover, it belongs to the group of antiallergic fabrics. This fabric is also well known for its airiness and comfort of the usage.
Silk is associate with a soft and pleasant to the touch fabric. It is very delicate and user-friendly. What is more, silk is light, airy and waves perfectly. This fabric is considered to be the most noble fabric in the world.
Wool is a fabric of animal origin. All products made of wool have perfect heat-insulating characteristics. Wool is resistant to the fast absorption of smell. Moreover, this fabric is not prone to smudge.
