Welcome to Natural Actives – my name is Nick Lawson.

Natural Actives is a magazine style site – a showcase for naturally effective ingredients from around the world.

One of the main trends in personal care products in the last decade has been the rising demand for naturally sourced ingredients.

Today’s customer demands products that really work with highly active ingredients from natural sources.

In the early days of the natural ‘revolution’ this often meant a return to familiar ingredients with a long history of use over centuries.

Nowadays cosmetic scientists, dermatologists and marketing professionals have to search out increasingly unusual and unfamiliar natural ingredients to satisfy more discerning customers in the personal care market.

In 2002, with over 20 years experience in the personal care and toiletries business, I started my own business selling unique and highly effective active ingredients. Many of the products supplied by my company, Unifect Ltd, are naturally sourced and this website is a platform for these uniquely effective natural actives.

The Natural Actives website is intended to be a magazine style site for all industry professionals seeking natural ingredients for new products or marketing campaigns.

Articles aim to entertain – to suggest ideas and present marketing stories for natural ingredients. More detailed product information is available from the technical data download page or by contacting us direct

I hope you enjoy browsing the site.
