Q&A on General
Are natural ingredients safer than synthetic ingredients?
Despite the general perception that plant or animal-derived ingredients are safer than those created artificially, we believe there is no difference in safety between natural and synthetic ingredients.
For instance, some natural ingredients, such as poison ivy, may irritate the skin, while we have a clearer understanding of the precise composition of synthetic ingredients, which are said to have fewer irritants as a result of fewer impurities.
In our view, the important point when considering ingredients is not whether they are natural or synthetic; it is whether each ingredient has been stringently tested and found to be properly safe.
At Mandom, we work hard every day to develop the safest and most effective products so you can use them with confidence.
