After perusing various “natural” brand names for non-toxic body products, and actually reading the ingredients label on their pretty packaging, I was alarmed. Your skin is your #1 organ for detoxification (yes, even more important than your liver and colon for eliminating toxins from your fat tissues via sweating), so obviously slathering your skin with toxic chemicals on a daily basis is NOT a good thing. If you’ve been tweaking your diet to get every possible chemical or allergen out, and are still having problems (especially with your thyroid, adrenals, sleep, weight loss, body composition, etc.), it’s definitely time to take a look at what the water you’re bathing in, the products you’re bathing with, the lotion you use for wintertime dry skin, and any makeup you apply (if applicable). Oh, and if you are one of those people who still uses an antiperspirant and fluoridated toothpaste, it may be time to reconsider.
Now that I’ve found some SAFE body products you can actually use without worrying about giving yourself cancer or Alzheimer’s, we are now carrying these products in the store. If you see any items you’d like to purchase, just click on the “buy now” button to be taken to the secure checkout area. You can add an item to your shopping cart, press the “back” button, and continue shopping if you wish to add more items to your cart.

Jojoba Oil 4 fl oz
- 100% Pure Moisturizing Oil
- For Skin, Hair & Body
Condition: In need of healthier hair, softer skin, or an oil for general bath care and massage.
Solution: 1 00% Pure Jojoba Oil is derived from the seed of the jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) shrub and is arguably one of the most popular cosmetic oils available today. Its high stability, invigorating scent and cosmetic versatility make it ideal for all skin and hair types, and it is most commonly used to promote softer hair and skin. Jojoba Oil contains many nutritional compounds, including long-chain essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols.
Suggested Use: For a non-toxic daily hair conditioner, add 1/2 tablespoon of 100% Pure Jojoba Oil to 7 oz. of shampoo. Add more or less depending on your hair type. For deep pore cleansing and healthy skin, add 1 teaspoon to your bodywash, bath gel or other non-toxic skin care items.
Expeller-Pressed and Hexane-Free.
NOW does not test on animals.
This one is a little more expensive than the NOW Jojoba oil for use as a hair and body conditioner, but it smells incredible! I highly recommend this one if you’re willing to pay a little more for the essential oils that are in this tridoshic (good for all hair types) Shankara hair oil.
Ingredients: Sesame Oil, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Brahmi oil, Bringraj oil, Amla oil, Saraswati Churna (Vacha, ShankPushpi,Pipli,Yavani,Ashwagandha,Lavan,Jeerak) oil, Sarsaparilla oil, Vitamin E, Essential oils of Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Lavender, and Coriander.
These facial oils made by Shankara are an excellent alternative to moisture creams that can tend to make your skin even more dry or too oily. Use the facial oils at night for deep moisturization or during the day for a healthy glow without the oily shine.
