What does ‘Natural’ mean?

What does ‘Natural’ mean?

Natural means anything that nature made, not man.  So a juice drink rich in Vitamin C is natural, and a Vitamin C pill is not natural.

Before man invented Aspirin, we used to use White Willow Bark, which contains Salicin (salicylic acid) as well as the plants anti-inflammatory plant compounds (flavonoids).  These were responsible for the strong pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the plant..

Man then learnt to synthesize salicin and put it in tablet form to make Aspirin.

So, there are a lot of synthesized, man made products that are very good and helpful to mankind. Haemanthamine is the latest molecule to be extracted from plants for their therapeutic use: morphine, quinine and ephedrine (to treat asthma) all have floral origins.  However, when it comes to food and skin products, we believe it is better to stay natural.
