Don’t be fooled by the statement “all natural”
Many brands have been suspected of “greenwashing”. Since it’s becoming more important for many consumers to choose products that are healthy, brands have become clever in their marketing.
There is no official definition of “natural” skincare so be careful of these claims. Remember, the label reveals the true ingredients so always review the label. Ingredients are listed in descending order of concentration.
