I spoke at the Twin Cities Holistic Seminar last month and then attended their companion trade show. That’s where a number of cosmetic industry raw material suppliers were showing off their latest “all-natural” cosmetic ingredients, or at least ingredients that could be incorporated into natural cosmetics.
In going through the literature I collected I was struck by all the “natural” claims being made and thought it would be useful to record them here in case any of you are working on an all natural line and need some marketing claims.
Common natural cosmetic marketing claims
Boron free – I didn’t even realize boron was a negative thing in the natural world.
Not animal tested
High bio-based content
Sourced from renewable plants
Ecocert, COSMOS, NPA certified
Created from natural ingredients
Sulfate free surfactants
I’m sure there are more so feel free to post some in the comments. I’ll try to expand this list over time.
