Are your formulations all natural?

Some are, some aren’t—I’ve shared over 1250 formulations since 2011! I am confident that the ingredients I use are safe, regardless of their “natural-ness”.

You can learn more about the ingredients I use in the Humblebee & Me DIY Encyclopedia. For ingredients where the natural-ness might not be clear, I usually note it.

I would encourage you to read these posts and articles. The first two in particular do a good job of explaining how fuzzy the term “natural” is, and how all-natural isn’t the be-all and end-all for everything and everyone.

If you want to use 100% natural things that’s totally ok! You do you. However, please be aware that there is a lot of bad information and fear-mongering about conventional cosmetic ingredients in the all-natural space. I’d encourage you to choose all-natural because you love it, not because you’re worried about the safety of conventional ingredients. When you’re doing your research, please make sure your sources are solid.

If you don’t agree with the ingredients I use in a certain formulation, just look for another one. I’ve shared a lot of free formulations!
