Point of Interest! I thought it'd be interesting to take a look at ingredient lists again for a moment to get an idea of where the miscellaneous category begins. When we're analyzing an ingredient list, it helps to know where the 1% section of the list comes in so we can figure out where they have used small amounts of something. For instance, when we see preservatives or fragrance, we know we're probably in the 1% zone, meaning that anything around those ingredients are likely to be used at 1% or lower. In this list, I know that methylparaben isn't used at more than 1%, so it's safe to say that everything after that will be at 1% or less (and I can confirm this knowing that we wouldn't use EDTA, propylparaben, or sodium hydroxide in a lotion at more than 1%). Does that mean that the stearic acid is used at more than 1%? We can't really be sure.
Naturally dyed skeins made with madder root, Colonial Williamsburg, VA Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources—roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood—and other organic sources such as fungi and lichens. The discovery of man-made synthetic dyes in the mid-19th century triggered a long decline in the large-scale market for natural dyes. Synthetic dyes, which could be produced in large quantities, quickly superseded natural dyes for the commercial textile production enabled by the industrial revolution, and unlike natural dyes, were suitable for the synthetic fibres that followed.
