Beauty Edit: The truth about natural beauty?
The natural beauty sector is booming more than ever before and we are becoming more conscious of what products we are using on our skin. But the question is, are products as natural as brands are claiming? I have been researching about natural products for a while now and having looked at numerous brands claiming to be ‘natural’ but unfortunately some brands products still contain synthetic ingredients such as, parabens, sulfates and formaldehyde. For consumers this can be very confusing and somewhat misleading. So if you are wanting 100% natural products then looking at labels and ingredients of products and brands is vital.
I’ve selected a number of organic and natural beauty brands whose products are free from synthetic ingredients and who are as conscious about your skin, as well as the environment.
