Nature is full of wonders so it is spontaneous to think that natural ingredients are mild. In reality only a small fraction of its plants are suitable for human consumption.
In a society living far from nature, there is a real longing for naturals, often with the accompanying romantic idea that everything natural is safe, and even though I
am an advocate of using plant derived cosmetic ingredients myself, I wish things were that simple.
Formulating with naturals requires a lot of background knowledge, frequently updated information and constant investigation; it is an endless learning curve. Before I dive into the topic, I need to define what I mean by naturals and skin mildness.
