100% Natural Vs Naturally derived skincare

The rise of popularity for natural products is steadily increasing but just what is it that we are buying when we see the word ‘natural’?   Let’s first of all discuss what makes a ‘natural' product.  Every chemical in existence is natural, from water and oxygen to oil and gas.
