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.
