  • No. For me those are often warnings signs because I’m allergic to a lot of things that are “natural” ingredients, like lavender, which gives me an asthmatic reaction. Zinc oxide gives me a terrible rash, so I have to use chemical sunscreens to get full borad spectrum SPF. Exfoliants that have papaya or pineapple enzymes give me a really bad reaction. Coconut oil makes me break out like craaz but I do use other oils for my hair, face, and body. I have a list of things that I avoid and some are what might be called “natural” and some “chemical,” though, really, everything is a chemical. I don’t go by marketing or tags on the packaging that says “natural” or “organic” over anything else because that’s not safer for me.

    I also find that a lot of the “all natural” and “organic” brands tend to do a lot of fear mongering based on inconclusive evidence. When I pass the mall kiosks and the sales people want to rub stuff on me, I always say no, I have allergies. One guy actually told me that his stuff was all organic and wouldn’t cause allergic reactions. Dude, organic does not mean what you think it means. There’s a lot of misinformation out there and I don’t like to support brands who market based on misinformation or fear. If a brand wants to go the more natural route without fear mongering and without including a lot of essential oils that cause irritation and allergic reactions, I’m happy to buy them if they’re good quality, but it’s definitly not something I prioritize.

  • Using the terms, “natural” or “healthy” is essentially meaningless. Only organic or “non-gmo” are precisely defined. Paraben-free or mineral oil free also has a meaning. I do purchase foundation, skin care, shampoo, soap, conditioner and body creams that are organic or are free of some of the worst ingredients. It is also kinder to wild life and water ways for all agriculture to reduce or limit toxic pesticide use. And to avoid products produced by gene splicing from one critter to another when they two have never been cross bred in nature also seems more respectful of all species and the chain of life. I must admit that I don’t use exclusively organic cosmetics, but with the products that cover a lot of territory, I definitely go organic or check for the healthiest ingredients at the highest amounts.

  • I think those labels are definitely a selling point, however, I only started transitioning to cruelty free the past couple of months and I don’t want to be overwhelmed. So just ”cruelty-free” is what I pay attention to right now…it’s a slow process but eventually I’d love to progress to all vegan.
