If you think about it, what exactly is natural? I feel like if it isn't strongly manipulated in a lab somewhere, it is somehow a natural product. Although, just because something is natural, doesn't mean it is safe. A lot of companies have been popping up all over the place, claiming that their product is natural. Upon further inspection, you can easily spot out the facades. The first warning sign that the product you are interested in is deceitful is when you find words you can't pronounce under the ingredients list. Sure, some fancier products, and more organic/scientific products will have the ingredients listed by their scientific name. That is different, and is easy to distinguish. So, do your research. Just because something says organic or natural on the product, doesn't make it 100% so.
Tips on how to spot the Natural from the "natural" products:
- Scan for hard to pronounce words. Google them if necessary.
- Check for the words "fragrance" "perfume". True natural and organic products only use essential oils.
- How much does this item cost? More often than not, the real deal is more costly. The fakers easily persuade the less educated into buying their products because they are cheaper.
- How is the product packaged? True, dedicated natural products usually look professional, earthy, and are packaged to be more eco friendly. I find it hard to believe that something in an aerosol can is really all that natural.
- Use your own judgment. If you have any doubts, just skip on that product for now until you learn more about it. I find nothing wrong in snapping a photo of the ingredients list to study at home later before making a purchase.
