    The first thing you have to do is to tell us what you are using as a definition  for the term “natural.”  If you use my definition (everything that isn’t supernatural is natural) then you’ve already got a natural shampoo.

    If you use the definition that natural means the ingredients are produced out in nature, then water and salt may be the only thing in your formula that is natural.

    I suspect that your definition is somewhere between those two extremes.

    Hi @Perry there will be a formulation study involving sles in which natural extracts are the majority. similar in nature to the above formulation. it’s not a vegan product.

    Putting extracts in a shampoo at a high level is an inefficient and unproductive way to formulate. If you want a product that performs well, you should minimize the amount of extracts in your formula.  They aren’t doing anything and they will only make the product perform worse. If you want to use them for marketing purposes, you can put them in at a low level (0.1% or less) and then talk about them in your marketing.

    TEA, SLES, EDTA.. I wish everyone’s definition of natural looked like that :)

    Hi @ngarayeva001 

    I guess we can define it as containing natural extracts?

    Natural = anything made with the ingredients on Mother Nature’s table; the periodic table

    Hi @Dr_Sara
    aloe barbadensis leaf juice
    equisetum arvense extract
    salvia officinalis leaf ext
    urtica dioica ext
    camellia sinensis leaf ext 
    arctium lappa root ext
    lawsonia inermis ext

    are these extracts not natural? 

    I don’t make a natural product when I use this formulation, but can’t I say it contains natural extracts?

    Hi @filiz
    I think you misunderstood my comment. Natural is impossible to define concretely and everyone has their own definition of what is “natural”. 

    All of the elements are natural and everything in the universe is made with these ingredients. So at one extreme, everything is natural because it is made with these elements. 

    Of course, you can say contains natural extracts.  :)

    My point is that unless there is a legal definition, natural is open to interpretation

    @Perry I do love the idea of “supernatural” cosmetics. What a fantastic buzzword!
