Did you know that companies may advertise their products as natural or organic, but they use chemicals that are harmful?
When you see 'natural care', 'pure essential oils', 'healing botanicals', 'pure flower and plant essence', 'certified organic', 'herbal extracts', 'hand-made', or 'holistic' on the label, do you believe it to be 100% natural?
What percentage of natural ingredients are you really getting in your favorite 'natural' product?
When you read the 'key ingredients', are you dismissing the others?
Do you know the side effects of these chemicals?
The harm they can cause to your system is disturbing to read. They have been proven to be dangerous to your hair, skin and health, but the continued use of these chemicals is due to the fact that they are inexpensive and lengthen the shelf life. Some of these companies justify using these chemicals. They even claim them to be harmless as well as improve the quality of their product.
Have you compared the “quality” of a product that is all natural to one that is 2%, 50%, or 70% natural?
Do you want to use a product whose the packaging costs more than the ingredients, or has been sitting on the shelf for 3 years?
It may say chamomile, green tea or jojoba on the front… but the fine print may also say ‘infused with propylene glycol’, which is used in anti freeze, or sodium laurel sulfate, which causes eye irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, scalp problems, and many other allergic reactions… and they put this in shampoo?
Here is a list of SOME of the chemicals that we found in products that claim to be natural:
- Sodium Palm Kernelate
- Sodium StearateSodium
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate
- Sodium Bicarbonate
- Alkyl Sulfate Lauryl
- Betaine Cocamide
- DEACetearyl Alcohol
- Methyl paraben Propyl
- Disterate Isopropyl palmitate
- Isopropyl myristate

Read ALL the ingredients. You may be surprised. We encourage you to research these ingredients and find out for yourself. It’s not all natural, unless you read the ingredients and YOU DECIDE that it's all natural.
