Hello Lauren,

A product that is labeled as organic must meet the USDA organic standards. The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole.

A toxic free product does not contain harmful chemicals. A good rule of thumb is to choose a product that has less ingredients and ingredients that you can pronounce.
