Are products on NaturalMantra.com really natural?
Today ‘Natural’ as a word has been misrepresented by many reputed brands in the market. Thereby misguiding consumers to believe that the chemical based products they buy are ‘so-called’ natural or herbal. At Natural Mantra we take the word ‘Natural’ seriously. For natural products to be truly natural (sans any chemicals) they have to be safe for humans to consume and have minimum impact on our planet thus making it sustainable. To understand our criteria of selecting products please read our page on ‘What is Natural?’
Why should I worry about chemicals?
Babies and children are highly susceptible to chemical toxins. Children eat more food per pound of body weight, they drink more water per pound and they breathe more air per pound as compared to adults. That’s why it’s important that we know what’s in the food we feed them, the products we apply (lotions, shampoos, soaps etc.)and those that we use around them (detergents, house cleaners etc). We have made a small attempt to start a glossary of chemicals that one must watch out. This list though not exhaustive is only a starting point to a sustainable natural lifestyle. This glossary of chemicals is a dynamic list that will be constantly updated. We hope that this will help you to start understanding the ingredients and the toxic chemicals that are worth staying away from.
My favorite natural/herbal moisturiser is not listed on the site. Does it mean it has harmful chemicals?
There are two possible reasons why it does not feature on NaturalMantra.com:
- Possibly, the product hasn't made it through our criteria and hence we don't consider it to be a truly natural product. We strongly recommend you choose from the wide range of natural products we have on our site.
- Looks like you have a product to recommend. Please write in with the details to Sell@naturalmantra.com and we’ll get the process started.
