    Everyone's definition of 'natural' is different. For me, it is important to be gentle without dyes or perfumes. I also support products that are not tested on animals.

    I want a company to be upfront about what their "natural" products contain. I'm currently pregnant & have a two year old, so I'm very sensitive to what chemicals and preservatives I'm exposing my household to- even in my daily skin care routine.

    Everyone knows natural means a no man-made product. While some man-made items are good, others are harmful. We are living in a world that seems to expose us to more harmful effects all the time. This includes pollution, UV, smog, etc.. It is always refreshing to find a natural product that works. Better for us, better for the environment.

    I have a four-month old who is constantly putting things in his mouth. When I think about "natural" products, I think about products that I wouldn't be beyond terrified to see near his mouth.

    i think it should be important to everyone that whatever they put on or in their body should be natural and not full of chemicals.

    I find myself reading more labels recently.The realization that everything we wash down the drain eventually goes into our rivers,lakes,streams and oceans.We need to be more responsible with our resources.

    I WANT TO BE AS NATURAL AS POSSIBLE BUT WITH MY SCHEDULE THAT IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE.

    The only thing I'm a real stickler on is artificial perfumes. They do horrible things to my skin and nose!!
