Plants, and herbs have long been used for cosmetic uses, and are only now starting to make a stronger appearance in the beauty community. This is due to so much recent light being shed on the chemical ridden products of yesterday. It seems that everyday we are seeing more and more products being taken off the market due to potentially poisonous or otherwise harmful substances being used in them. Just recently we saw baby products being contaminated with formaldehyde, and other cancer causing substances. And even more recently we have found that many bi-products of certain chemicals, such as parabens are causing more problems for the beauty industry. It is for this reason that natural beauty, or organic beauty has been on the rise around the world. More companies are starting to advertise their use of greener products, and more natural ingredients, and among them are a slew of herbs and plants.
