If in doubt, contact the seller. Anyone selling genuine organically-grown items will be happy to clarify that their product ingredients are produced to organic farming standards and may be able to give details of any organic accreditation scheme on the label (e.g., Soil Association).
Beware Products Labelled as Organic

Be very careful when listings claim that an item made of plant-based ingredients (cat litter, cosmetics, food, clothing, etc.) is " organic" - it may not mean that the product was grown without artificial pesticides and fertilisers. Rather, some unscrupulous sellers will use the term "organic" in the vague sense of "living things" in order to mislead buyers, and will claim their item is organic even if every ingredient was treated with artificial pesticides and fertilisers. Honest sellers will clarify in their listings what they mean by "organic".
