As an aside, the one I saw had mineral oil, paraffin, and petroleum listed. Perhaps because it's a Canadian product and the listing above is American there's a difference?
Have a think for a moment...
- What does natural mean?
- What does the word "moisturizers" mean?
- Looking at this list, do you see ingredients that might be construed as being moisturizers but not natural?
- If you don't consider the moisturizers 100% natural, how can they make that claim?
St Ives had a campaign a while ago "No Unnecessary Chemicals". Of course there aren't unnecessary ingredients! Ingredients cost money - why would you add anything that wasn't necessary?
What do you think?
