We promote the use of natural ingredients where possible, but where there is a synthetic ingredient that we feel gives a more professional finish to a product we will include those too.
Whilst we don't specifically focus on organic ingredients should you wish to substitute an ingredient - for example coconut oil for its organic version, you are completely at liberty to do so.
