Shea Moisture


All of their products are chemical free and formulated from all natural ingredients, many of them organic.  The purchase of their products empowers disadvantaged women.  All of the products are also sustainably produced and ethically traded.  They are not tested on animals.  I personally use the lotions for my baby and on myself.  I also use their soaps and I have found them all to work awesome and smell awesome too.  I look forward to trying more of them :)  They make shampoo. conditioners, soaps, body wash, lotions, skin creams/care, and more.  Click here to visit their website.



  Ology is a brand by Walgreens that can be found at Walgreens.  They make lotions, household cleaners, laundry detergent, toliet paper, and more. They do NOT conduct animal tests and all of their products are made without the use of harmful chemicals.

My favorite product by them is their 100% tree free toliet paper and paper towels

"Made from readily renewable sugarcane husk & bamboo, Whitened with H2O2, a non-chlorine based bleach, Septic safe & biodegradable.

Traditional paper is made from trees that take up to 35 years to replace.  Our biodegradable bath tissue is made from readily available sugarcane husk that would otherwise be disposed, and quickly-growing bamboo that regenerates in as little as six months."



  EcoNuts are made from soap berries that naturally remove odors, are a natural soap, are anti-bacterial, etc.  I have used them and found them to be very effective.  Made from organic eco nuts.  The liquid detergents also contain food grade preservatives and vegetable glycerin.  The preservatives have a comparable toxicity to table salt (so not much).  The most natural way I have found that is convenient, makes my clothes smell clean, and contains no chemicals.  You can also buy the nuts themselves and use them to wash clothes (I also use in the dishwasher).  It also makes your clothes super soft.  Saponin in the eco nuts (occurs naturally) is what does all the cleaning! Shown to the left are two eco nut products.  Click on them to be directed to amazon.
