It is easy to feel confused and overwhelmed when reading a typical ingredient label. While the language of organic chemistry is foreign to most people, manufacturers are required to use chemical names on labels. Therefore, many ingredients appear synthetic and potentially risky when, in reality, the ingredients are perfectly natural and safe. For example, “alcohol” simply refers to any chemical structure that includes an “-OH” for “oxygen and hydrogen”. The ingredient “Ethylhexyl (Octyl) Palmitate” might seem intimidating, but in fact, this is a natural derivative of palm butter. However, many companies misrepresent the claim of “all naturally derived ingredients.” To avoid this, look for products that list both the chemical and common origins of all ingredients on their labels.
