What is Organic
Certified Organic products are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO).
Rediscovered by Western countries in the 1940s, organic farming is an innovative method of farming and production that is increasingly being recognised as being on the leading edge of food and fibre technology.
Organics is not just chemical free agriculture. It is about the way the product ingredients have been grown, prepared, processed and packaged.
Standards to achieve certification are internationally recognised and are assured through annual audits of all certified operators by an independent third party auditor.
Miessence is founded on the principle that only organic is good enough for our bodies and our planet.
Many companies highlight natural ingredients, but to be sure that you are using truly organic products, look to see if the manufacturer can prove that it is certified organic.
Miessence is the first nutritional, health and well-being company in the world to offer an extensive range of internationally certified organic products.
Why Is Certified Organic Important?
The only way customers can be assured that they are purchasing genuine organic products, free of synthetic chemicals and GMOs, is to purchase products which have been organically certified with a leading independent certifying body such as:
- ACO (Australian Certified Organic)
- USDA(US Department of Agriculture)
- BFA (Biological Farmers of Australia)
- IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements)

Five Benefits of Choosing Certified Organic:
Good for the soil
Organic systems rely on a modern and scientific understanding of ecology and soil science, while also depending on traditional methods of crop rotations to ensure fertility and weed and pest control.
Good for the environment
Organic systems aim to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources. Organic production aims at all times towards sustainability whilst having best management of the environment and wildlife as a priority.
What is a GMO?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is a plant, animal or microorganism whose genetic code has been altered (subtracted from, or added to either the same species or a different species) in order to give it characteristics that it does not have naturally.
Scientists can now transfer genes between species that otherwise would be incapable of mating, for example, a goat and a spider. This is what we call transgenesis.
Little is known about the long-term effects of these manipulations on humans, plants, animals and/or the environment. And while some see GMOs as the way to the future, others believe that scientists have gone too far, tinkering with the essence of life.
Good for people
Organic based ingredients have been shown in a number of studies to contain more vitamins, nutrients and cancer-fighting antioxidants than non-organic ingredients.
No synthetic chemicals
Organic systems prohibit the use of artificial chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers.
Certified Organic products are produced without GMOs, which are prohibited in the standards for organic food and farming.
