Ce n'est pas parce que les extraits sont naturels qu'ils ne sont pas nocifs.

Alors, prudence ! Surtout avec les produits d'entretien et cosmétiques soit-disant safe. A fortiori, quand tout le marketing développé autour des normes et des certifications bio et autres peut être trompeur ! Très trompeur !
