We know that when sourcing new skincare ingredients, brand owners are concerned about the effect of climate change on the environment and its possible implication on natural and clean label products. But there is a secret tying it all together…
Balancing science and nature by rolling out transformative and science-backed natural ingredients can give consumers the best of both worlds. When science and nature work together and in harmony, it makes ingredients more effective.
In this sense, it is important to remember that not all synthetic ingredients are harmful, nor are all natural ingredients harmless. It is the effectiveness of a targeted ingredient that is the deciding factor, and it doesn’t matter if the ingredient is lab-made or plant-derived.
