What is Natural Cosmetics

Handbook of Research on Achieving Sustainable Development Goals With Sustainable Marketing
These are cosmetic products that are made from naturally occurring ingredients such as plants, minerals, and other organic substances. These products are free from synthetic chemicals and are often minimally processed to retain their natural properties. Natural cosmetics are marketed as being gentle and safe for use on the skin, as they do not contain harsh chemicals that can cause irritation or other adverse effects. However, it is important to note that not all natural ingredients are necessarily safe or effective, so it is important to research and choose products carefully.

This study examined the determinants of purchase intention of green cosmetics, and eight semi-structured interviews were performed to identify them. The determinants identified were environmental awareness, lifestyle, willingness to pay, ethical issues and social and economic justice, cosmetic quality, concern with health, certification labels, trust in the brand, and advertising. Environmental awareness, lifestyle, willingness to pay, quality issues, ethics, and social and economic justice, as well as quality expectations, health concerns, and product knowledge, are the most significant determinants in the intention to purchase green cosmetics. Determinants such as certification labels, brand trust, and advertising are less significant. The research is relevant for the cosmetics industry and its brands to adapt their strategy and product offering to meet consumers' needs and increase the consumption of green cosmetics and can also serve as a basis for the development of new quantitative studies on the purchase intention of green cosmetics.
