Botanical or plant based ingredients that occur in nature and are not synthetically produced such as jojoba, safflower oil, rose hip seed oil, shea butter, beeswax, tea tree oil, witch hazel, aloe vera, chamomile, coconut oil, calendula, cocoa, avocado.

In brief: Beware

Be careful of products which market themselves as "natural" but yet contain many ingredient names you don't understand.
Some may cause allergic or irritant reactions. Simpler is better.
