Review of Nurture My Body- your skin, our organics: based in Denver, CO. Info about the company, from their website: “After seven years of research and development we launched our business in June of 2006. Our passion is to provide the safest and most natural personal care products that reflect the unique beauty in all of us while maintaining our stewardship with the Earth. What led Patty Kerr to conceive and give birth to this dream? Twenty-six years in the beauty industry as a licensed Esthetician and Hairstylist, a Certificate in Nutrition, Body Care and Herbalism, coupled with past experience of overexposure to chemicals. Additionally, with two beautiful teenage daughters, it became apparent that the pressure from society to look and act a certain way was affecting the way the girls felt about themselves. They were never going to be “enough.” Patty became passionate to create a different ideal that would empower young women and men to learn to accept and love themselves by simply appreciating what nature gave each of us.”

I’m trying to do a review for every business on my “approved” personal care listing, which this business has been for some time after a recommendation that I check it out from someone on the page (how I find out about most of the smaller personal care lines represented). When you browse their products & ingredient labels you will see very long ingredient lists, which often is a red flag. However, when you look at these labels you’ll realize that’s not the case. The products are filled with organic, wildcrafted, biodynamic ingredients. EWG lists 40 products by the company, none scoring more than a 1 which is EXACTLY the reason it is on my safe/approved list.

I was told I could choose a full size product from their offerings so I chose shampoo, as it’s one of the most Frequently Asked Questions on my page. They have 3 types of shampoo to choose from (moisturizing, for normal hair, volumizing), with a scent-free option for each of those as well. I chose the shampoo for normal hair.  About this shampoo– Price: $24.95/ 8.5oz bottle: Our botanical Shampoo for Normal Hair combines 18 certified organic ingredients to gently wash away dirt, impurities, and build-up while leaving healthy, soft, and manageable hair with a beautiful shine. This is our most popular shampoo which beautifully cleans without stripping the hair’s natural oils. It does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate or any harsh detergents. Safe for color-treated hair.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Decyl Polyglucose, Lauryl Polyglucose, Cocos Nucifera (Coco de Cream)**, Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract**, Tussilago Farfara (Coltsfoot) Infusion**, Stellaria Media (Chickweed) Infusion**, Urtica Dioica (Nettles) Infusion**, Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Infusion**, Ulmus Fulva (Slippery Elm) Infusion**, Althaea Officinalas (Marshmallow Root) Infusion**, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey Root) Infusion**, Calendula Officinalis (Pot Marigold) Infusion**, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile Flowers) Infusion**, Avena Sativa (Oatstraw) Infusion**, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) CO2**, Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender) Essential Oil**, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedar Atlas) Essential Oil**, Citrus Reticula (Red Mandarin) Essential Oil**, Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Essential Oil**, Rosemarinus Officinale (Rosemary) Essential Oil**, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Extract *Organic **Certified Organic ***Wildcrafted ****Biodynamic/Demeter Certified

The shampoo produced a fabulous lather & I only needed a little bit for my hair, which is quite short so you would obviously need more for very long hair. The shampoo smells lovely, with an earthy smell from the cedar, lavender, rosemary, with a hint of citrus which I’m a huge fan of. It did not leave my hair feeling oily or greasy, and I did not follow-up with any conditioner. I love that they give you  the option of a BPA-free plastic bottle, or glass bottle with pump for only $1 more, which of course is a fabulous deal & I would certainly go for if purchasing this product!

Categories of offerings by this company: Skin, body, hair, baby & pregnancy care, sunscreens, or you can shop by skin-type or feature such as vegan, nut & fragrance-free. Many of the products are in the $25.95-$27.95, with a few a bit cheaper such as a lavender toner for $15.95, and some more expensive such as facial serums going for $69.95. I generally don’t like to comment on affordability of the lines I review, but know from my 1 ½ years of experience on my page that this line  is definitely out of the budgets of 90% or more of the page (a fact I’m sure they’re well aware of). And that’s Ok. But, I do know that there are some on the page who have the money, and desire, to splurge on some great quality products, made with great care & love, and this is a line for those folks! I was very surprised when looking for a photo from Google images to upload for my review I noticed picture from Amazon where the products are indeed available! Most are the same price, but I did see a bottle of the conditioner for $10!!!

In conclusion, I think this is a fabulous, safe line that I have absolutely no hesitation recommending. But it is also one that is out of the reach of many financially. I thank them for allowing me to sample a bottle of their shampoo, and I thank them for making terrific products with no harmful ingredients.
