What Does 98% Naturally Derived Mean?
We consider an ingredient to be naturally derived if:
- It is unchanged from its natural state
- It has undergone chemical or other processing which modifies it from its natural state but which retains at least 50% of its molecular structure from the original plant source.
In general, a raw ingredient is processed to improve its stability, efficacy and/or safety for use in hair care products.
- The degree of processing varies for each ingredient, but at the end only a plant-based ingredient that retains at least 50% of its molecular structure from the original pant source is considered naturally derived for Garnier Fructis products.
- Minerals must retain the same chemical composition as their natural mineral ingredient.
