It has come to my attention that beauty supply stores are starting sell natural and organic products.
The sad thing many of the products are BS. Please take the time to read the label you will be surprised what they claim to be natural and organic is not. Also what is the percentage of the organic or natural ingredient that is in the product? Manufacturers can get away with a lot as long as they stay certain guidelines. Doing this keeps their costs down, which is good for them, but not so good for you. So keep this in mind when purchasing products for your skin.
