Why natural ingredients

At Terra, we believe in using the most natural ingredients possible for each beauty and home product. The beauty industry is full of products with chemicals that are made to preserve and make a cheaper product. It is beyond me why some products are meant to last more than a year, and they are still called "fresh"! These chemicals may bring harm to your body and this world.
