Why does LolaVie use the term “naturally-derived” instead of just “natural?”
Currently, the FDA has not defined the term “natural” and has not established a regulatory definition for this term in cosmetic labeling, which, we understand, can be confusing to consumers.
For transparency, LolaVie defines “natural” as any chemical substance that is naturally occurring and which is unprocessed. It does not include petroleum or any petroleum-derived ingredients. When we say “naturally-derived,” we mean ingredients that are starting materials of mineral, plant, or microbe origin but may have been chemically processed and/or undergone bio-manufactured processes to improve performance or make the ingredient resilient.
