Natural chemicals are produced by nature (some agricultural) without using human intervention. Synthetic chemicals are made by human specialists using methods not found in nature, and these chemical structures may or may not be found in nature. This definition means a synthetic chemical can be made from a natural product (eg, naturally derived). Note that in the food industry, “artificial” is used instead of “synthetic”.
