Inspired by “past experience of overexposure to chemicals” and “two beautiful teenage daughters” who were feeling the “pressure from society to look and act a certain way,” Patty & Rich Kerr, owners of Nurture My Body, strive to “empower young women and men to learn to accept and love themselves by simply appreciating what nature gave each of us.” That rocks. And so do Nurture My Body’s products which are made by hand, cruelty-free, and do not contain any harmful synthetic fragrance oils, preservatives, petroleum products, FD&C colorants and dyes, parabens, phthalates, or other toxic chemicals.
Nurture My Body’s products contain only “certified organic ingredients derived from live plant ingredients harvested from organic farms or directly from the wild.” All Nurture My Body products come wrapped in gold paper with a lavender sprig attached and include an inspirational quote and a personal message from one of the owners. Also quite lovely.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with proven anti-aging benefits, and that’s why we love Nurture My Body’s Vita C Cream. Vita C Cream contains vitamin c palmitate, seaweed extract, shea butter, avocado oil, jojoba seed oil, wheat germ oil, rosa damascena oil, rosehips, lavender oil, rosemary, sage, and grapefruit extract, and is infused with ingredients like green tea, marshmallow root, comfrey root, pot marigold, and elder flowers. Vita C Cream is deeply emollient and feels great going on your skin. It has an immediate smoothing and brightening effect, making it perfect for mature skin, not to mention a wonderful citrusy scent.
Nurture My Body’s Organic Exfoliating Cleanser is filled with jojoba beads so it is a very gentle cleanser, yet it’s tough enough to thoroughly clean and refine your skin. Other ingredients like seaweed extract, chamomile, rosebud, lavender, aloe vera gel, rosa damascena, grapefruit oil, lemon oil, lime oil, palmarosa oil, olive oil, grapefruit oil, and peppermint oil, give the Organic Exfoliating Cleanser a kick and add to its refreshing smell.
Conveniently, each of the products listed on the Nurture My Body website have an Environmental Working Group (EWG) Skin Deep Database rating next to them. EWG Skin Deep Database ratings are based on the dangers associated with cosmetic ingredients and range from 0-2 representing a low hazard, 3-6 representing a moderate hazard, and 7-10 representing a high hazard. Nurture My Body’s Vita C Cream and Organic Exfoliating Cleanser each rank a 1, and in fact, 31 out of 43 of Nurture My Body’s products rank a 0, which we love. Clearly, this is a company who cares about what we are putting into our bodies via our skin and hair care products.
