The purpose of this research study wa s to provide a general understanding of consumers' purchasing intention of organic beauty product (OBP) among OBP and non-OBP buyers. A total number of 150 questionnaires were collected at a well-known shopping complex in Malaysia. Partial least square (PLS) approach was adopted in the analysis of the results. The findings of this study show that purchasing intentions of non-OBP buyers are significantly influenced by health consciousness and product availability, whereas OBP buyers are affected by environmental consciousness and product availability. However, purchasing intentions of both OBP and non-OBP buyers are not significantly influenced by information availability.
