How Joan Morais Defines Natural

“Natural cosmetics are made from raw materials sourced from nature, renewable feedstocks, plants and minerals. The raw materials go through the least amount of processing and processing methods. Using green chemistry and the latest sustainable, energy efficient technology, including, biotechnology and biobased ingredients. The processing method causes the least impact to humans, animals and the earth, with no or low carbon footprint. Active nutrients known as nutraceuticals are used; supplements, such as beneficial vitamins for the skin and hair. Natural cosmetics are green, renewable, sustainable clean beauty that promote nourished and radiant skin and hair.” Joan Morais
