    Our skin may absorb what we put on it. Castor oil has a molecular weight that will carry other chemicals into our skin layers. This can be a blessing or a curse. I am careful to note ingredients and how necessary those are to a product and my body.

    Natural is nice but I definitely want a product that works and delivers on its promises. If it has some "unnatural" chemicals - that's really OK with me!! I will still buy it, use it & love it.

    I try to be careful with what I use. I have sensitive skin, some natural things do bother me, so, unnatural can be ok too.

    I don't go out of my way to buy natural, but if it is that's a bonus.

    I am taking 'natural' in this context to mean that the product is not loaded with synthetic ingredients that could be harmful to my skin.

    I like products that are natural,but there are times when the front of the bottle leads you to think it's natural. once you read the ingredients you find out there are a lot of chemicals in the product.

    So many products on the market are misleading when you see the word "natural". I read the labels on most products to make sure. I don't need anything on my skin, hair or nails that can cause irritation.

    I have recently switched over to being very careful that my body products, especially lotions in our house are natural. My youngest son and myself have very sensitive skin and after trying 100's of different products and prescription creams. I have found a complete line of natural products at a bath and body store.

    For me, I have a very sensitive face when it comes to acne, and I notice a huge difference in the way my face not only looks, but feels when I use natural products.

    I like natural products when I can get them; but usually have to settle with something a little less expensive.
