Reading Ingredient Labels

I was just looking at L’Occitane’s blog and read a very interesting fact: “The first three ingredients listed on the label generally represent about 90-98% of the product. Ingredients listed in the middle of the label usually present about 5 to 8% of the product and the last ones about 1 to 3%.”

So while all of a product’s ingredients are relevant (keep reading the entire label), those first three are the bulk of whatever you’re buying – good to know!
