are any of the ingrediants from fair trade sources? organic? anything? they might be natural ingrediants but that doesn't necessarily mean they're ethically sound.

That's a good point. The term "natural" is pretty nebulous these days. Companies can just slap that word on anything and cash in on society's growing awareness of the impact food and personal care products have on our bodies. Hence why research is needed before one pays extra for something labelled "natural".

Precisely my thought. It really irritates me when something say's 'natural' and doesn't back itself up.

The large majority of companies will boast about it if their products are organic and/or fair trade because organic certification costs tens of thousands of dollars, and fair trade products often are considerably more expensive than what most companies buy(obviously). It's pretty safe to assume that if a company doesn't have it all over the label, they aren't organic or fair trade unless they're a tiny mom&pop company that actually DOES comply with organic/fair trade rules but can't afford to get certified.

Looking at Good Clean Love specifically, they seem to be a quite small company, and on their page they say "We take the utmost care in selecting our organic ingredients and creating product formulations that work with the body, not against it.", so I wouldn't doubt they just can't afford to get certified but actually DO use good ingredients.
