    Why we don’t use the word “natural.”

    Petroleum often shows up in beauty products as mineral oil, petrolatum or plasticizers.

    Yes, as in plastic – and it’s technically “natural.” After all, petroleum comes from the earth. 

    Heavy metals, silicone, GMOs, animal ingredients… are all technically “natural.” And often found in “natural” products. 

    Yet none of them are good for you. Or the rest of the world.
