Natural
At its simplest, natural means โ€˜from natureโ€™ so we consider brands to be natural if they avoid using man-made additives like chemicals, fragrances, and preservatives. While itโ€™s hard to avoid all chemicals and artificial additives, we recognize brands that actively pursue natural and organic alternatives.
