Earth's Care continuously monitors developments in natural ingredients as they strive toward this objective.

Some of Earth's Care's formulas contain synthetic preservatives. Why does Earth's Care use these?
Virtually all of Earth's Care's ointments and balms do not contain water and thus do not need preservatives.

Some of Earth's Care's products have a noticeable aroma. Does Earth's Care use any artificial fragrances in their products?
The aroma present in Earth's Care products, if any, is due to the natural ingredients in the formulas. Earth's Care never uses artificial fragrances in their products. In those few instances where Earth's Care does use fragrances, they are natural and phthalate-free.

Earth's Care will continue to monitor the characteristics of any new recycled plastic containers that become available.
Why does Earth's Care use amber glass bottles for all their oils?

Earth's Care carefully reviews and analyzes each ingredient before they select it for a formula. Earth's Care considers dozens of ingredient possibilities for each of their natural products. Earth's Care also evaluates the level of expected performance for their intended use, and whether the ingredient will be non-irritating and unlikely to cause allergies. This painstaking analysis, followed by multiple stages of product development for each formula, has enabled Earth's Care to develop an outstanding product line of health and beauty products built on natural sourcing.
Does Earth's Care believe topical drugs and cosmetics should only contain natural ingredients and that all synthetic ingredients should be avoided? No, they do not. However, they do believe that research has created enough doubt about the safety or effectiveness of some synthetic ingredients to justify using natural alternatives when available.
Virtually all of Earth's Care's ingredients in their products are indeed natural, and most of their product formulas are all natural. In fact, all of their ingredients are on the approved ingredients list of the leading natural products trade group. However, Earth's Care has chosen to exceed the standards of this association in some cases, as they do not classify certain of these ingredients as natural.
Earth's Care does use synthetic preservatives in certain products that contain water. Preservatives are essential in these formulas to inhibit bacterial and mold growth. However, Earth's Care is continuously striving to find natural substitutes for these preservatives and the other few synthetic components of their health and beauty products.
