Companies that Use Natural Ingredients
Posted on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015 at 7:00 am
Many people seek out foods and beverages that contain natural ingredients. That often means reading the labels on the packages to see what ingredients are inside. Somehow, not everyone thinks to do that with products that are not foods or beverages. It is entirely possible to find companies that use natural ingredients in their products. Here are a few to start with.
Burt’s Bees has been well known as a company that emphasizes natural ingredients, and sustainability, for a very long time. They use the following natural ingredients in their products: almond, aloe, baobab, beeswax (of course!), buttermilk, camomile, clary sage, cocoa butter, cotton, cupacu, daisy, eucalyptus, flower waxes, willow bark, sunflower, royal jelly (another bee product), rice, pomegranate, pink grapefruit, peppermint orange, mango, lemon, lavender, kokum butter and jojoba.
Beeswax is a natural emulsifier. It is used in cosmetics, lotions, and balms to bind. It also has a nice smell, and can help seal the skin when a person uses moisturizing formulas. Royal jelly helps enhance skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Their soaps are made from all natural ingredients. The base of their bar soaps are made with: natural olive, coconut, soybean, and corn oils. The bar soaps are scented with natural oils. Some soaps also contain organic shea butter and unrefined sea salt. Their natural hand soaps and body washes are made with plant derived materials and blended with natural fragrance blends. Aloe, shea butter, and jojoba oils are included.
Soapbox Soaps points out on their website that the way things are listed on their soaps has to adhere to International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients standards. You can find an explanation of their labels on their website.
