Though there are many "natural" products available in the market today, there is surprisingly no government regulation on the use of the term "natural". This makes it very difficult for ordinary people to discriminate genuinely natural products from chemically-laden ones with a few natural extracts thrown in. It is especially difficult in the Philippines, where many manufacturers more often than not, simply don't list the chemical ingredients on their labels if they have elements they don't want you to see!
Human Nature is the first Philippine home and personal care brand that is a member of the Natural Products Association (NPA). NPA is the largest and oldest nonprofit organization in the US dedicated to the promotion of natural manufacturing and protecting of consumers' health and environmental safety. It upholds the strictest standards of naturalness of personal care products in the world.
Several of our products have been awarded with the NPA Natural Seal,
which is given only to products that pass these standards:
1. The ingredients are biodegradable with no human health risk and at least 95% natural. In fact, many of our products are 100% natural.

2. The ingredients come from a renewable resource with no petroleum compounds, and the products are developed in a way that doesn't harm the environment nor use animals in testing.

3. A product may contain a "non-natural" ingredient, but is only permitted if there is no readily available natural alternative, at which point, the ingredient meets strict criteria on human and environmental safety and biodegradability.

Nature possesses the most potent ingredients to clean and nourish our hair and skin without the harmful chemicals. Our skin, being made from organic substances as well, will also respond best to natural ingredients instead of synthetic ones. That's why natural products are the best things you can use to care for your body.
YES! They are much better, which is why the most privileged people have been willing to pay very high prices for them until now. Many chemical personal care products can be harmful in the long run, e.g. some common cleaning agents irritate and dry out hair and skin leading to long-term damage and premature aging. Some chemical ingredients have even been linked to cancer, reproductive and hormonal disorders (see What's Not In Our Products below).
Some people are allergic to natural substances such as bee pollen, nuts or eggs. If you are, you may have a reaction to a product which contains those natural or organic ingredients. However, many more people are allergic to synthetic chemicals in everyday products. Since our products do not contain these irritating chemicals, there is less likelihood of allergies to our products. If you are unsure about your allergies, please test a small amount on the inside your elbow before using it extensively.
All our products are 100% free from harmful chemicals, and safe for most people. However, it's always your best bet to consult your obstetrician-gynecologist /pediatrician first before regularly using any product.
Because all our products are 100% free from harmful chemicals and at least 95% natural (most are 100% natural!), they are safe for the use of teens, kids, and even infants. For your peace of mind, we always disclose all our ingredients on the product labels so that you can check if there are natural ingredients that you know your children to be allergic to, since some people can be hypersensitive even to natural ingredients such as strawberries or tomatoes. It's a good practice to perform a patch test by applying the product on a small area of your child's skin and observing for any reactions within 24 hours.
All our products go through safety assessments by industry experts and thorough clinical studies evaluated by independent third party labs.

Additional checks are conducted for breakthrough products such as hypoallergenic evaluation, SPF testing, and efficacy testing to ensure you get genuinely natural, safe products.
We purposely do not create whitening products, because we believe that the Filipino natural skin color is beautiful, whatever the hue! Many whitening products in the market also contain harmful chemicals that are toxic to the body when absorbed through the skin over a prolonged period of time. Not only that, they create an unhealthy perspective that beauty depends on how light your skin color is. At Human Nature, we celebrate the beauty of diversity of skin tones of Filipinos and Filipinas everywhere!
Yes! Gandang Kalikasan, Inc, the company that brings you Human Nature is BFAD/FDA registered with LTO number: CCRR-NCR-CT-0458.
