Which product do you care more about being natural?

Just like many women's hair color, the word 'natural' can mean many things to many people.  More and more beauty companies are launching products under the 'natural' banner, but what does that mean? 

Truthfully, it can run the gamut from the product having a small percentage of plant or essential extracts, to actually being up to 95% organic. Don't fret, there are many brands currently working on creating beauty industry standards to define natural products.

Baby/maternity (38.5%)

Hair (4.4%)

Skincare/body (37.6%)

Fragrance (2.5%)

    It was so important to make sure my daughter was not exposed to any chemicals or fragrances when she was first-born. I still tend to lean toward organic and natural items with her in mind.

    Babies and little ones are more susceptible to substances. We must all be careful but adults can tolerate chemicals etc. better.

    I have a nephew who is allergic to almost everything under the sun and out of it. Having more natural products is so important to his health.

    Both maternity and baby products are important to be 100% or as close to that as possible to me. As a pregnant mother one has to be careful what she exposes herself to, and then what good would it be to take all that care of yourself to benefit your baby for 9 months, and then not care about the products you use once your baby is born? It would not do much good in my opinion. Natural products without harsh chemicals are all I do use and will use for future children. It is of utmost importance to me as a mother of a 4 year old, and who plans to have more children soon.

    I especially want my newborns to have all natural because I can never be sure how sensitive their skin is or what allergies they have. As they grow up I transition to other products slowly so I can look for any reactions.
