    I prefer to have natural products, as I know many chemicals that we put on our bodies are harmful with repeated use, and bad for the environment. Howevever, many of these products come at a high cost. When it comes between two products, I tend to lean toward the more natural one, but if it's twice as much as the other, I have to pass it up.

    It is important for me to use natural products on my skin. Too many chemicals can react with one another and no telling what can happen then. The safety of using a natural product is worth the cost, the risk of damaging my skin or my children is not worth the savings.

    It is very important to me that these products be natural! No one rally knows what all the chemicals we put in/on our bodies will do in the long term.

    I don't look to see if a product is Natural or not. I just smell, try and if it works for me and I like it I buy it, Natural or not. I work for a big Pharma and well somethings in life can't be all Natural.

    It feels morally right to be 'all natural,' but truthfully, I think some all natural products are scams. I look for reasonable price in the products I buy and if I feel the products and the price are comaparable, I will go for the natural. I look more for 'not tested on animals' than organic on makeup and such. Bubble bath... use it daily, like lots of bubbles, so I usually go strictly for price.

    It just feels great to be natural. It makes me want to be me at all times.

    all things being equal, if a brand can be effective, alluring, high designed, priced right, and epitomize beauty not sackcloth, I much prefer to purchase natural/organic in sustainable packaging. no question. it's up to brands to make that easy for all of us to do. and we all know it can be done.

    We are natural by birth. So only the natural things will suit us. We are made by God and the unnatural things are made by us. We cant match to the one who made us. This belief only keep us beautiful by nature. We need nothing more.

    Natural ingredients in skin care are the best because they don't have harsh chemicals that can irritate or cause allergic reactions.
