Before WWII, everything was organic. (Eco bodycare: did you know skin absorbs 87% of what’s put on it?)

My grandma says “This organic stuff is a scam.” I pause a beat, and deliver my come-back: “No it’s not!” Fact is, before Dubya-Dubya Two, everything was organic. It’s old-timey. And the idea of slathering chemical-laden moisturizer all over your face has got to be one of the stranger fictions to arise from our culture’s chemical hangover. But until recently, there wasn’t much of an alternative. Now there is.
