I then found a clean, chemical free beauty product company called Nine Naturals available exclusively online at ninenaturals.com. Not only do I now use and recommend their products, but I also now write a monthly blog for them.
Unlike most other brands on the market, Nine Naturals is free of ALL of the yucky stuff: NO Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, DEA, Synthetic Fragrances, or Artificial Preservatives. They make all the essentials, and you can order small trial sizes first to find your favorites. Their website is easy to navigate, bright, inviting and full of helpful information about 'safe beauty'.
Even if you aren’t pregnant or planning a pregnancy, you can still feel good about using Nine Naturals because minimizing toxin exposure is always a good idea to maximize your health. I personally love their citrus shampoo. My hair has never been so shiny or soft!
