Why it can’t be 100% organic product?
Organic actually refers to agricultural produce so can only refer to ingredients which are farmed. Water, minerals, salt and clay, though natural, but can’t ever be Organic and also there aren’t always certified organic alternatives for every ingredient, so many of the products also can’t be 100% Organic.
