Going Natural!?

The world today has tons of marketing that advertises just about everything as natural. What are you really getting? The truth is that the labeling laws allow for plenty of non-natural ingredients to be included in our products.

One food for thought is that if a product has water in it, it has the potential to grow bacteria.! If your product lasts longer that 1-2 weeks at room tempurature it likely has a preservative in it. The labeling laws state that if any ingredient is in a quantity of less than 1% of the entire batch then it does not have to be on the label. Interesting eh!

Let me know what you think.

Next up I will talk about what presevatives are out there and how safe or harmful they are based on clinical studies.

Cheers for now
