INGREDIENTS WE USE

all natural and organic ingredients, base oils, butters and pure essential oils used in The Loving Nature's skin and hair care products


100% Natural Ingredients 

Our products contain no synthetic chemicals and will always be natural. Wherever possible we choose Certified Organic ingredients. These are marked with an asterisk (*) in the ingredient list of each product.

We carefully select suppliers who meet the highest quality standards like raw, unrefined and pure. We only use suppliers that campaign for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. They are all registered and certified by The Leaping Bunny (Cruelty-Free), The Soil Association (Organic) or The Vegan Society (Vegan).

Product Labelling

Sometimes the names of the ingredients found on the labels can be intimidating for many people and often misunderstood. All manufacturers must legally comply with EU requirements by using the INCI names (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients).
This naming system is used worldwide. It is based on Latin and allows the consumer to identify ingredients quickly. All ingredients are listed on the product label to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction to a specific component. Find out more about INCI names here.

The rules also require that a product label should also include all possible skin irritants at the end of the listing. Examples of these allergens are Geraniol, Limonene, Citronellol, Eugenol and Benzyl Benzoate which are naturally occurring elements of essential oils. For example, Benzyl Benzoate occurs naturally in Ylang-Ylang Oil. Limonene, Geraniol and Citronellol are a part of Rose Oil and Eugenol is a big part of Clove Oil.
