I have been hunting high and low to find 'natural' products but I just cannot find anything with a short list of ingredients.
I decided to look at Burt's Bees items because they claim to be natural but when I looked at the list of ingredients I was very disappointed. I know that when a product uses a scientific name they put the common name in parentheses so you can tell what it is, e.g.
-avena sativa (oat)....found in Aveeno active naturals lotion
-thoebrama cacao (cocoa) extract......found in Palmer's cocoa butter formula.
But we all know that things like
are NOT natural.
I was told that the closer a product is to being natural...the fewer ingredients it will have. Out of those, there will be more with parentheses and less with long sounding names. I was sad to see that Burt's Bees had TONS of long chemical sounding names and a tiny percentage of products that were plant based and therefore NATURAL.
A friend of mine also told me about Carol's Daughter hair products so I decided to check them out.
Same thing...I was stunned to see the list of chemicals in this 'good for you, natural' line of hair care.
The ONE thing I have found with the fewest ingredients happens to be Palmer's cocoa butter...which is a formula that I use regularly and love anyway.
So again I ask...WHERE are all the NATURAL products?
