There are ingredients found in some 'natural' and eco-friendly products that you will never find in ours. Click here to see what they are and to find out if your 'natural' or eco-friendly product has them. The most popular 'should not contain' ingredient you will find on many 'natural' products is 'fragrance' and that is scary for so many reasons one being that a company can hide other not so good ingredients that actually have nothing to do with creating that scent under that one word and not share it with you, the consumer
I am a proud supporter of Canadian small businesses and only purchase my ingredients and packaging from them. Some create the ingredients I use, some are distributors. Obviously coconuts are not from Canada so this ingredient is coming from outside of the country but the distributor of the coconut oil is a family run business in Ontario and they supply H.O.P.E. Eco Store (a family run store located just outside of Aylmer ON) where I purchase my coconut oil.
I think it is extremely important you are aware of the origins of the ingredients in the products you use and if I am going to ask you to support local small businesses shouldn't I be doing the same?
