I'm always looking for "natural" which is less chemicals or no chemicals. I am impressed at your response to James blog. Thank you for addressing it here. He raised questions that, I feel, you answered well.!!

I wish we would just adopt a model like many european countries have for safe body care products (and food additives for that matter)- If there are "best practices" out there- let's use them, right? Shoulda, woulda, coulda, I know- But this has to be from the government AND from companies who want to have a good reputation like whole foods.

Glad to see WholeFoods taking care of the consumer again. Love shopping at your stores, and we'll be looking to incorporate this information into our next trip!

I am all for regulation for body care so companies representing their products as "natural" will be held to the standards the buyer expects from that term.

i'm so glad that Whole Foods is carrying actual "all natural" products. many companies tell you that their products are all natural but sometimes it doesn't seem like they're being %100 truthful, it's great that when it comes to all natural products your company has high standards and won't settle for less, that's really great!

The regulation or lack thereof of products claiming to be natural or chemical free is one of the most important issues -- particularly when it comes to products for babies and children. I would be interested in learning more about the specific products and tests done to ensure their efficacy. Often there are so many products on the shelves that it is hard not to be swayed by packaging and promotional material as opposed to the content of the product.

There is always a question about what is natural and what is not. I stick with coconut oil for my beauty regimen just b/c I'm uncertain. This video was very interesting.

Thank you for this wonderful information. I can't believe that everything that says natural can't always be trusted to be natural. I have just started looking for products without things like parabens

<strong>I am happy to see someone taking a stand on this finally. I see so many products and wonder if they are truly natural or organic.

I truly love whole foods, I visited frequently out west but have yet to have one close to my home here in Florida. What an informative podcast, thanks!

This is a great reminder of what we should expect from "natural" products...and to know that you are committed to providing selection and knowledgeable staff is encouraging.

This is one of my eco-peeves...it's hard for consumers to know what natural is especially when their mis- labeled natural and their not...looking at the ingredients is a biggie and when you pick it up after you see the word natural it should be just that. this is not just an issue with body care but with food as well!!! I'm glad to know that Whole Foods is setting the standard!

When we first got our truly natural soaps into Whole Foods, I was a little dismayed to see all the "unnatural" bodycare products on the shelves. A big fat kudos to WF for cleaning up their act! Like Kermit says, it ain't easy bein green...

Thank you! There was a desperate need for this! Hours and hours spent searching on the internet for safe products and getting more confused then when I started, (and I "ain't" no dummy "neither" - hee hee ) but they make it so hard on the labeling because they don't really care about the green outside, they care about the "green" in my wallet! It has left me in tears. Please know that every minute you put in at the end of a long day deciphering this for all of us is greatly appreciated beyond words! I'm going into a Whole Foods Market for the first time and I'm going in for the Premium Body Care Section. Thanks, tons and tons of gratitude to you all. Keep up the good work! (And raise the bar, like you said, when you need to.)

You go Whole Foods! To actually do research on your own packaging? That's awesome. As long as you don't raise the prices, I'm fine with it.

I am looking for a natural product for sebborheic dermatitis inside both ears and near the side of the right ear. I have been applying numerous Cortizone creams, but they are making my situation worse, I am looking for natural alternative. Can you help me? Thanks, Carolina

@CAROLINA - Since our products differ between stores, I would suggest reaching out to the Whole Body team at your local store to see what they recommend.
