Neutrogena Goes Natural! Acne Scrub, Cleanser, and Spot Treatment
It's always with some trepidation that I approach reviews of companies that are mainstream but now offer a "natural" line. Are they truly offering natural products because they believe natural is better, or is it a marketing term or move to gain some of the natural market? I like to assume the former, but then I wonder why such a brand would not convert all of their products to natural ingredients.
I used Neutrogena products a lot as a teenager suffering from pimples. The company now offers a natural line of acne solution products. We were sent three items:
- Neutrogena Naturals Acne Foaming Scrub
- Neutrogena Naturals Acne Cream Cleanser
- Neutrogena Naturals Acne Spot Treatment
- Salicylic acid acne treatment
- Fortified with an acne fighting bionutrient for clear, healthy-looking skin
- Clinically proven acne medicine treats and helps prevent breakouts
- No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes or pthalates
I cannot attest to their effectiveness for treating acne, as I no longer suffer as I did when I was younger.
Although these products are not specifically evaluated by the Environmental Working Group, similar products in the line have a relatively low hazard score of three.
I have to say I am pleasantly surprised that Neutrogena makes it easy to find out exactly how much of these products are natural. It states on the label that the ingredients are 93% naturally derived. Such disclosure is unusual from a mainstream company like Neutrogena, and I am impressed.
Disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
