Most likely, the answer is NO. The term "organic" is used very loosely these days and provides a false sense of security. The truth is, most organic skincare also contains contaminants, irritants and preservatives. "Organic" may refer to one natural ingredient while the remainder of the ingredients are harmful.
Paleo is often referred to as a diet: paleo diet, caveman diet, Stone Age diet, and hunter-gatherer diet.
The paleolithic diet is a nutritional plan based on the presumed diet of Paleolithic humans. It is based on the premise that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture, which marked the end of the Paleolithic era, around 15,000 years ago, and that modern humans are adapted to the Paleolithic diet.
The Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils. In reality, the Paleo diet is synonymous with REAL FOOD. For more information about the Paleo diet, click here.
Paleo skincare refers to skincare made with only REAL FOOD sources- sources our ancestors millions of years ago could have used for their own skincare. Lab made chemicals are never added to Paleo skincare. As with ALL real foods, FRESH is the best source of nutrients. You would not eat 2 month old broccoli- so why use skincare that has been sitting on a shelf for months?
Mass produced skincare products are filled with artificial preservatives to prevent mold and bacteria from growing in the product as it sits on a shelf- sometimes as long as 3 years!
Furthermore, these preservatives can be contaminates in the body- causing damage at the cellular level. They can disrupt hormones, cause adverse skin reactions (acne, rosacea, melasma and rashes) and damage our DNA.
These products also contain other harmful ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS), Benzoyl Peroxide, Propylene Glycol, Paraben Preservatives, Talc, Mica and a bunch of others. What is the problem with these ingredients? Some are neuro toxins- disrupting the neuro transmitters, some are mutagens- produce DNA damage in human and other mammalian cells. Mutated cells can lead to cancer. Some dehydrate the cells and the skin. Many cause rashes and allergies. Many disrupt the endocrine system. A lot are airway irritants.
What does this mean to you? These ingredients can cause harm to your body and organs, as well as cause harm in unborn, developing children. Problems and symptoms of these chemicals can include:

You may choose to explore further once you see and feel how your body responds to nutrients that come from the earth. While eliminating foods that can cause disruptions in the body will offer best results, detoxifying your skincare will definitely improve your long-term health.
Paleo is a term used to describe the healthiest, natural real food sources for the body. Nature supplies the ingredients, not a lab. Food supplies the nutrients. FRESH is most nutrient dense and most easily utilized by the body. Furthermore, REAL FOOD heals the body. The nutrients allow the body to function the way it was intended. Most that choose Paleo skincare notice their skin conditions go away. WHY? Because the skin condition was caused by the harmful ingredients in the products they were using. Once the harmful ingredients are removed and the skin is fed nutritious whole food sources, the skin can heal and the cells can function properly.
