Really enjoyed the first three episodes!
Have just listened to the first three episode back to back. Very informative in easy to understand language.
I've learnt so much already being a part of the formula botanical family. Listening to Lorraine in the Green Beauty Conversations is just another level of education.
Looking forward to the next episode.
Great content overall!
Thank you Lorraine and Gemma. Great start and well chosen topics to give you food for thought. I particularly liked your take on what natural means versus chemical free skincare. I also liked your suggestion that we should start paying more attention to what is in our products rather than what isn't. Thanks for excellent overview of cosmetic regulations in various countries. Very informative and inspiring!
The distinction of the shade of natural and the definition was just what I needed to understand the use of the term better and I’m glad it came to me at the time when I’m considering going in to organic hair care line
Brought another term to life that is the chemical free term. Instead of saying it’s chemical free highlight the better ingredient and there uses
