Luckily, the number of companiesoffering natural, herb- or botanical-based and chemical-freecosmetics seems to increase every day. And while these increasingoptions give you easier, more widespread access to naturalcosmetics, they also can increase the confusion and muddle as yousearch online or in your health-food store. Here are a fewcompanies that offer high-quality, natural cosmetics that our staffhas tested.
