Definition of Organic

  1. Any substance that contains the element carbon. Nearly half the substances in the world contain carbon, and almost all nail products contain carbon. Organic does not mean safe. Petro-chemicals are carbon based, thus organic. Organic is simply a name used by scientists to distinguish one half of the stuff in this world (carbon-containing) from the other half (non-carbon based, thus inorganic).
