This means that they quickly break down into carbon dioxide and water and do not form persistent compounds that would be harmful for the nature. In development of the Natura products the whole life cycle has been considered: raw materials, production, use, disposal, and recycling.

High requirements are set not only on environmental friendliness but also on safety and quality. All Natura products eligible for the Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification have received it. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel has strong criteria, but Natura series is a step further: all Natura products are fragrance-free. Most of them also carry the Allergy label of the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation.
