Hello again, just wanted to let you know that I am almost out of my first bottles of Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner, and will happily order again. My hair looks and feels so much better than before! I am so impressed that these products deliver as promised, without the scary chemicals used almost everywhere else. Keep up the good work!
Julianne B. - Hillsboro, WI
I just tried the Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. I've tried a lot of organic, SLS and paraban free shampoos and most left my hair feeling like straw. But not yours... it left my hair soft and manageable. And the conditioner smells incredible! I will definitely be purchasing again.

I'm a recent NMB convert. As a strict vegan and general health nut, I must say that Nurture My Body products have been nothing short of amazing and delightful to use on my skin. The quality of the ingredients, packaging, and the overall care that your company clearly pours into the effort to be clean, cruelty-free, environmentally and economically conscious makes me feel deeply grateful and elated to be a supporter. I think it's important for consumers to use their voices as well as vote with their wallets. I wish everyone in the NMB family continued success and well-being. Thank you!

Dear Rich and Patty, I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful products and for your fast shipping. I received my order in time to pack for my trip. Your personalized customer service was off the chart! I was referred to you by EWG when searching for "0" toxins hair care products. I am thrilled with your products. I ordered and have used the Moisturizing Shampoo Fragrance Free, the Conditioner Fragrance Free, and the Ginger Body Wash.
I have long color treated hair. I am delighted with how the gentle shampoo lathers and how the conditioner left my hair manageable and silky soft. The Ginger Body Wash was another delightful surprise! My skin was left clean and fresh, without chemicals.

I have very sensitive skin. I have never been able to use any regenerating creams. Even the ones that claim to be for sensitive skin were to harsh for my skin. For the last 3 years, I have been noticing that my complexion is looking more dull and I have some sun damage. I have bought cream after cream, only to throw them away because they irritated my skin and caused more redness from the first use. I had just accepted the fact that I would have to live with my dull complexion.
When I ran across your site and read about the Regenerating Cream Fragrance Free, even though I was apprehensive to try anything else, this cream intrigued me because it is all natural and organic and because it said it was beneficial for rosacea and sensitive skin. So I ordered it, and I have to tell you I am so happy. Today is my 3rd day using it, and there is no irritation. In fact, my skin has less redness than before I started using it. My complexion is glowing and looks dramatically better. If this is what it does in just 3 uses, I can hardly wait to see the results from continued use. Thank you so much. I will never stop using this cream! You gained a customer for life!

Two days ago, your Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner arrived. I was so anxious to see how they would work! I've used them twice now and am very happy. The shampoo lathers nicely and it takes very little to shampoo my hair. The conditioner left my hair feeling clean and soft. Bravo! So nice to know that I am no longer using toxic substances in my products.
J.B. - Hillsboro, WI
I LOVE these products! Just received the Ginger Hand and Body Lotion today, and I'm in HEAVEN. Other favorites are the Vita C Cream, Gentle Face Cream, and the scrumptious Exfoliating Cleanser. I'm a NMB addict and proud to say so! Thank you, Patty and Rich, for all these delicious products. You rock!
Lori S. - Yelm, WA
I loved the packaging -- the economical care with everything was wrapped, the soluble peanuts (mixed with recycled non-soluble, which I will take to UPS), and of course the gorgeous, fragrant sprig of lavender against the gold tissue. FYI, I ordered the two items after reading about you on the Good Guide (maybe also EWG? I can't remember now).
L. S. - Washington, DC
I was having a moment of appreciation for your products. I am having some health issues and can't eat a whole lot so I don't think I'm getting a full complement of vitamins. I think my skin is doing so well (meaning it is comfortable -- not dry and the products don't irritate it) in large part because of the nutrients in your products. So thanks.
And to let you know, the only thing I put on my face are NMB products -- no makeup, nothing else. I also use NMB Shampoo and Conditioner on my hair (nothing else but NMB products for my hair), and NMB soap on my body!
Arlen G. - Amherst, MA
Hi Rich, I just tried your Moisturizing Shampoo Fragrance Free and Conditioner Fragrance Free and I love them!! Finally products that don't weigh your hair down. I can't wait until my hair repairs it self from all the years of using harsh shampoos and petroleum base conditioners. Hurray! Can't wait to order some facial products! Thanks.
Melinda N. - Windermere, FL
Just want to say that I've been using the Moisturizing Shampoo for nearly a week and loving it! My hair is getting some red sheen back -- something I haven't seen without the help of my hairdresser. Best of all, I know this shampoo is good for my hair, good for our environment. I can put to rest my hunt for the best shampoo and skin care line. Thank you for your good efforts for your line of products.
Candy B. - Edmonds, WA
Dear Patty and Rich, I first found out about your products after searching the EWG Skin Deep database. My skin is very sensitive and reacts to most skin and body care products, and I wanted to switch to products that didn't have harmful chemicals. I was happy to find that almost all of your products had a "0" rating, and so I decided to give them a try. I was really amazed to find out that many products that I previously purchased at Whole Foods still contained harmful chemicals. Once I received your products, I was hooked!
I absolutely love the Ginger Body Wash - I take it with me when I travel, as well! I am so happy to have found products and people that I can trust. Not only do you have an excellent product line, but your concern and care for your clients is conveyed beautifully, even through the littlest things like the uplifting quotes and the handwritten letters that you place in the shipments. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the hard work that you do to offer top quality organic products. I believe in your products and your company, and I am thankful to you both, Patty and Rich, for your efforts in making the world better. May you both have a happy and blessed holiday season, and I wish you the best in 2012!
Tracey F. - Duluth, GA
Dear Patty and Rich, Received my parcel and it was beautifully packaged; I love the lavender spear. The Vita C Cream Fragrance Free, the Eye Cream Fragrance Free, the face soap (Cream Cleanser Fragrance Free) and the bar of Sensitive Skin Soap Fragrance Free are the nicest skin products that I have ever had, plus being safe. Thank you for making such great products, Patty. I will order again in the fall.
Linda S. - Wroxeter, ON, Canada
I just started using your Volumizing Shampoo about a week ago and I am in LOVE!! I have been trying for years to find a shampoo that made my oily, long hair soft manageable and lovely while not being so toxic. I was just about resigned to looking limp and greasy when I found you! In less than a week my hair looks better than it has in years!! Thank you for making such a wonderful and safe product! I can hardly wait to try your Skin Care products!
Jennifer W. - Colorado Springs, CO
Patty and Rich, It was so nice to receive a phone call from Rich this evening in regard to my comment on my purchase today. I was shocked that he called to say how much he appreciated my excitement about using your products. I have never had an owner of a company call me to say thank you. It means a lot to me, and I can't wait to receive my products! Thanks again, and I look forward to purchasing my Skin Care from a company who is as dedicated to their customers as you seem to be.
Gina W. - Bel Air, MD
I recently purchased the Eye Cream Fragrance Free. I have ultra sensitive skin around my eyes and I have spent a fortune trying to find a natural eye cream that didn't irritate my eyes. I have finally found it! The Fragrance Free Eye Cream is soft and silky and feels great on my skin. THANK YOU for developing such a wonderful product!! [Editor's Note: Well, even though our Eye Cream didn't irritate YOUR eyes, gotta confess that your sweet comments irritated our eyes in a good way. Hugs 'n thanks, Michelle.]
Michelle D. - Virginia Beach, VA
Rich, wanted to say hello to you and your lovely wife, whom it is obvious you care so much about.
After almost a year (actually only 9 months once the bottle is finished) of using your Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner Fragrance Free, I'm ready to order my second bottle of Volumizing Shampoo. The Conditioner has much more to go since I only use it about once a month. I'm still convinced your products, at least the two I've used, are the best on the market.
My 71-year-old Mother began using the same Shampoo and Conditioner a few months ago and agrees wholeheartedly with my conclusion and wants nothing but your Shampoo and Conditioner now.
Thanks for the sale and for especially continuing to offer the USPS reasonable shipping rates for those of us on a tight budget. :)
Joseph J. - Brooklyn, NY
Hi Nurture My Body peeps! I was having the WORST day on Monday... it was raining, cold and depressing here in Milwaukee, and my two young children were cranky (teething baby) and being naughty (the 3 year old). I was ready to run away and join the circus when I checked the mail and got my order.
I was so delighted when I opened the box and saw how beautifully wrapped my order was. So much love and care had obviously gone into just the shipping! It just about made me cry since it was the nicest thing that I had happen all day!
Thank you SO MUCH to your staff for making this tired Mommy's day!
Michelle G. - Milwaukee, WI
[Editor's Note: Gosh, do we ever love emails like this.] Dear NMB: I just ordered and received your Moisture Cream Fragrance Free. First, I was impressed with how quickly it arrived by USPS (I live in Ann Arbor, MI). Second, and more importantly, the product is *wonderful*. I have had a hard time finding a facial moisturizer that works well under my makeup but is still moisturizing. Your product is just perfect. I'll be ordering more soon and telling everyone I know about your products.
Angela P. - Ann Arbor, MI
Irina A. - Kent, WA
I keep giving your samples to my friends with birthday cards! I have fallen in love with your products since I started using them when I was pregnant. (My beautiful HEALTHY 5 month old daughter says thank you as well!)
Kate B. - Bronx, NY
I had a few issues with my first order from you folks - the pumps wouldn't open on any of my products! The head of your shipping department (I think his name is Rich) was AMAZING at calling me. I was in medical treatment all day that week, so was not able to call him back during your office hours... he was literally a stalker in trying to ensure I was receiving great customer service and the pumps would work . :) I am SOOOO IMPRESSED. The good news is that I LOVE LOVE LOVE your products. I'm trying to find out how I can buy in bulk and save your sending me a bunch more beautiful bottles. I'm telling everyone I know about NMB. You are the real deal. Also - I LOVE the inspiring messages... made my day and VERY special!!!
Anne C. - Dallas, TX
[Editor's Note: A note from a cancer survivor that brings us tears of joy for what we're doing.] I recently discovered your brand over at Skin Deep, and I must say I'm very impressed with your company's dedication to purity and transparency. As a cancer survivor (diagnosed March 2010), I've recently become more aware of what I'm putting in and on my body. My latest goal has been to start transitioning to natural/organic personal care products. Nature lover that I am, I'm rather surprised I didn't do it sooner. Before the cancer, I was vaguely aware of the ingredients in products I used, but was mostly a label skimmer (if it said it would do what I wanted, then that was good enough for me). I had no idea that some of those ingredients could potentially be harmful to me.
I want you to know that I very much plan on trying your products in my search for safer alternatives.
Thank you for being concerned about my well-being! :)
[Editor's Note: This is what makes it a joy to wake up in the morning.] Just received my first shipment. Of course, I had to try all the products right away! I am so satisfied with the feel and the result of the products. You really know what you are doing. I ordered the Eye Cream Fragrance Free, which is fantastic and does not simply seem to evaporate and make my eye area feel parched again after an hour. Same with the Floral Hand and Body Lotion. It's easy to spread, soaks in quickly, yet leaves the skin feeling elastic and hydrated. Now, the Cleansing Milk Fragrance Free...I have searched for a long time for a good facial cleanser and this one is it! I went and bought expensive "mainstream" luxury products that cost me an arm and a leg and would strip away all of my oils and dry even my t-zone! The milk cleanser cleans very well, but doesn't mess with my face's. moisture. The Exfoliating Cleanser smells very nice and seems to have just enough beads in it to get the job done. So many exfoliators are so abrasive, but this one is so gentle, I feel I can even use this product on a daily basis, achieving the radiant look I want. So overall, I have no clue how you guys keep your products so "clean" and free of the bad stuff and make it work better than all of the rest. Please never change.
Lena S. - Temple, TX
[Editor's Note: Do we EVER love the love!] Dear Nurture My Body Family: I was impressed with your company when I made the phone call and placed my order. The service was amazing...kind, friendly and warm. I received my order....I was so excited to try your products...I opened the box and I was amazed, my products were packed with a flair of style. I love the presentation and warmth you all transpire. By the way....love the products!
I have completed my journey discovering a product that has successfully developed skin care that is safe - and it works!
Donna R. - Cape Coral, FL
[Editor's Note: This is SO cute!] Rich, I received my Shampoo, and am looking forward to that new product! It's really lovely to receive the shampoo wrapped like a gift. I hated to open it. But forced myself :-) I think packaging matters. I love your blue glass and plastic and the gold label.
Alice H. - Albany, CA
I’ve been using all of the wonderful Nurture My Body products I got from my parents for Christmas and am LOVING them. Especially the Acne Serum. Leading up to my wedding day I want to make sure my skin looks great, and most acne treatments, while getting rid of blemishes, leave your complexion looking worse than before because of all the harsh chemicals. This stuff is amazing and makes my skin feel healthy and me feel beautiful. Love it! (Do I sound like a celebrity on a Proactive infomercial right now? Can’t help it – NMB is just that awesome!) :)
Amy K. - West Salem, OR
Dear Rich and Patty, I received my second shipment of your Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner today in the mail. I decided to try the "unscented" version this time. I so look forward to trying the unscented and I will positively let you know how I liked it! I would like to also comment on what I call the 3 - P's - 1. Product - Beyond excellent! 2. Presentation - Always a pleasure to open the boxes that are so meticulously wrapped with the beautiful little stickers that always have something positive and encouraging to say. 3. Perfection - Great pride is taken in your product, and I can tell just by the way your product looks and how the packaging is always dressed to the "T". Thanks again and I look forward to my future shopping trips on your website!
Cathy U. - Orlando, FL
I am a recent Canadian customer and I simply wanted to say that I am absolutely satisfied with your amazing products. I will most definitely continue doing busness with you. Thank you for all of the care you put into your products and packaging.
Christina C. - Quebec, Canada
Hi Rich, Just a brief note to say hello, and let you know after four months of use of your Volumizing Shampoo Fragrance Free and Conditioner Fragrance Free, now I'm convinced more than ever that I have the best shampoo and conditioner I've ever owned. You won't get orders from me too often because your shampoo goes such a long way, I use it daily and after four full months of use I'm still not half way through the bottle. The conditioner I only use every two weeks so there's no telling how long this stuff will last. In any event, I just wanted to tell you that my lack of re-ordering your products has nothing to do with a lack of interest in them. You can be assured that I will purchase from you again once my current supply gets get low. Thanks again for producing such great products! Please give my greetings to your wife, Patty, as well.
Joseph J. - Brooklyn, NY
Not only the products of Nurture My Body are fantastic, but also the service is impeccable. Thank you so much! [Editor's Note: Now THIS makes us so proud. Take a look at where Sophie lives.]

I love your products! I've been using your Moisture Cream for a few years now, I am 40, and no one gives me more than 28! So, THANK YOU!!

Rosemary P. - Payson, UT
Hi Patty and Rich, I just wanted to tell you how much I really enjoy your products! I am so happy to have found you. I've only had them a couple days and I absolutely love them all. I can't wait to try something new as well. The packaging was lovely inside and am truly impressed w/a company that cares about their customers as much as you do.
Rachelle C. - Roseville, MI
I absolutely love having confidence washing my two boys in your Baby Wash! Thank you for making a product that smells so great and is so natural for the betterment of the next generation!!! Hats off to you for a product well done!!!!!!
Ann T. - Nazareth, PA
I love your products! I've stopped using regular shampoo and other sulfate-free ones leave my hair oily except for yours! [Moisturizing Shampoo Fragrance Free] My hair is shiny and with just enough of my natural oils in it! Thanks!!
Maria R. - Burleson, TX
Hi, just opened my shipment, thanks. I haven't had Shave Cream in a couple months and I can't believe the difference it made! Never again will I go without.
Christy S. - Los Angeles, CA
Hi Rich!!! I posted this comment on EWG [about your Baby Lotion Fragrance Free]: OMG! I love it! A pleasant fragrance! It's a lotion not an oil! Leaves my skin feeling great and I'm an adult! Totally recommend this! A super product!!!!!!!!" It is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Muchas Gracias!!!!!!!!!
Jackie R. - Myrtle Beach, SC
I am so happy for you guys in all the coverage you're getting about your wonderful safe products. Thank you for making your dream come true to help not only your family but mankind. God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving. A fan for life.
Kitty W. - Lexington, KY
I see that your goal at Nurture My Body is simply, "We're here to spoil you!" I would like to let you know that you've done just that. I love my new Volumizing Shampoo! I especially love the delicate scent and the ability to lather without any harsh chemicals. Not to mention how your Shampoo makes my hair look and feel! I look forward to receiving the Conditioner that I understand is on the way. I am so grateful for this! Thank you for such a wonderful product.
Cathy U. - Orlando, FL
Thank you so much for developing such wonderful environmentally friendly products. I've had such trouble finding companies that offer organic products that actually work on my oily and problematic hair and skin. Your customer service is amazing as well. Most companies I've tried to purchase from refuse to ship to an APO/FPO [addresses for armed forces]. What I love most about your products is the smell. Everything has a very naturally beautiful smell that seems to perfectly mix with the natural smell of my skin. I have a sensitive sense of smell, and not smelling "fakely nice" is good for me. EWG was right to rate you so highly!
Veronica E. - Alexandria, IN
Dear Rich & Patty, I've been using your Volumizing Shampoo Fragrance Free a little over a month now and wanted to let you know that I think this Shampoo is of the highest quality. I have a serious chemical sensitivity and have over the years tried many reputable companies that have Fragrance Free Shampoos. However, I have had to give most of these "fragrance free" products away due to my sensitivity. Not so with your Shampoo!
Thus, I think you may have one of the best Fragrance Free Shampoos on the market. Since I liked your Shampoo so well I decided to try your Conditioner Fragrance Free. Although I've only used the Conditioner a couple of times, it is equal in quality to the Volumizing Shampoo. I would describe your Conditioner as refreshing and invigorating! I thank you so much for such high quality products, and I thank EWG Skin Deep for the lead to you.
Joseph J. - Brooklyn, NY
I recently had a birthday and I asked my sister to get me some samples from a few categories because of the great things other reviewers said. I have to say I was a bit skeptical because usually the things that are good for your skin never work. Boy, was I wrong! I love the Gel Mask, Cream Cleanser and Lavender Toner...and the Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner work great on my hair. I'll be filling up my bathroom cabinets with your products so THANK YOU so much for taking the time to create this line.
Caroline K. - Chicago, IL
I have to say WOW! I'm impressed with the products (Baby Lotion, Baby Shampoo and Baby Bar Soap). This is the FIRST time that I've ordered anything that came to my door so nicely - the gold paper, the lavender sprig and the sincere note on my invoice. I very much enjoy the inspirational statements and have placed them on my mirror in my bathroom ... going thru some trying moments and they help. My 5 year old loves the blue bottles and the scent!!!!!! [Editor's Note: We just LOVE spoiling you!]
Maria H. - Livonia, MI
A friend sent me to your site because of the 0 EWG Ratings that you have and I've been in love with your products since - the Cleansing Milk and Moisture Cream are amazing and smell fantastic and no chemicals. THANK YOU! [Editor's Note: Jessica found us 5 months ago and took the time out of her busy life to write us after all this time. Are we ever honored!]
Jessica S. - Brooklyn, NY
Hi Patty & Rich. My package arrived today. I always feel so special when I open a box from Nurture My Body. Thanks for taking such good care of me. [Editor's Note: So simple, so sweet, so appreciated by us.]
Donna M. - Georgetown, TX
Rich, just wanted to tell you how much I love your Vita C Cream! I cannot believe the difference it is making to my face. Every morning I rush to the bathroom mirror to see how my wrinkles are doing. They are still there, but it has taken me 50+ years to get them so it is just fun to see how each day they are less and less visible! Not to mention I am only using good things on my body now!! Thank you guys so much for your products!! [Editor's Note: THIS is what makes our life!]
Sally W. - Pataskala, OH
Rich, I've been meaning to send you an email to tell you what a great bubble bath the Baby Wash makes! My son LOVES playing in the bubbles from the Baby Wash and I'm thrilled that it doesn't have all that nasty stuff like other bubble bath products. Hope you are well! All the best. [Editor's Note: Who woulda thought? We should change our advertising!]
Glynna C. - New York, NY
I just wanted to say thank you for how quickly you placed [shipped] your orders. I couldn't believe it when I opened my mailbox and there was my Hand and Body Lotion Fragrance Free. I was sOOO very pleased. I have such difficulty finding a fragrance free lotion. Many organic products BUT not with some kind of fragrance. I just wanted YOU to know how grateful I am for you.
Maggie P. - San Diego, CA
Rich, can I say, since using NMB I stop and check myself out in the mirror all the time. Sad but true." [Editor's Note: Is this the sweetest thing you ever heard?!]
Jeannie W. - Sacramento, CA
This is the best Volumizing Shampoo I've ever used -- no daily build-up, wonderful volume.
Nellie H. - Berkeley , CA
I received my first package today - and yes, it was beautifully wrapped - and yes, I love the products, and the little handwritten thank you. But I also wanted you to know what an absolutely delightful surprise it was to first smell, then find, the little branch of lavender tucked under the seal. So, so, so very lovely! THANK YOU!
Julie R. - Philadelphia, PA
So happy I found Nurture My Body! My skin has changed dramatically since I have been using your Vita C Cream and the Floral Toner. Your Gel Mask is amazing, it makes my skin glow and feel so clean! I love how natural that your cream is that it never irritates my eyes. Any other cream I would put on would make my eyes water and burn. I am so happy I found your products, I absolutley love them!!!!
Christy C. - Cleveland, OH
I love your Organic Moisturizers... I've had acne for 15 years and everything I've put on my face before seems to break me out.... I've used your moisturizer for the past few months and my skin has never looked better and it has not broken out ONCE. Thanks for putting a product out there that is NATURAL.
[Editor's Note: A. Myrick had even more to say, and we're thirlled!] Thanks so much for offering effective organic products! I've had complexion woes for over fifteen years now and almost every product I've used before has broken me out. After researching the benefits of using organic products, I began to really think about what was being absorbed into my body on a daily basis. One day I began searching the Environmental Working Group site and found just how harmful the products I had been using for years on my face actually was. Nurture My Body products received great ratings as being all natural so I decided to try your Moisture Cream Fragrance Free. I've been using it for over 3 months now and I LOVE it! My face hasn't broken out once and the appearance and overall condition of my skin has really improved. Thank you for offering a product that is 100% natural and effective. Keep up the good work!
A. Myrick - Foley, AL
I just started using your products a few weeks ago (Skin Care & Hair Products), and I am truly impressed not only by your commitment to making non-toxic environmentally-friendly products, but by the luxurious experience that they provide. It's like a mini-spa retreat in my day.
H. Winslow - Yorktown Heights, NY
Thank you so much for your devotion to such fantastic products! This is the first time I have used these organic lotions and soaps and I love them!! I fully understand the damage that the products on the market are causing us and our children and Iam happy to know that there are people like you on this earth that care enough to make safe chemically free skin products.
Most of my family members and friends do not believe that the products that they use are harmful, even after showing them the skin deep database. All I can do is focus on keeping my own children safe from the harmful chemicals that I am supposed to bathe them in on a daily basis. Thankfully it is because of you I won't have to anymore!!
From my Family to yours I send a big hug and a thumbs up for all your hard work and dedication! Oh yeah, and I would like to mention how beautifully my products came packaged to me. Very nice touch! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
J. Kinan - Plymouth, MA
I received my order today and was so struck by the beauty of your presentation. The focus of your intention and attention was inspiring. Thank you for making a difference in how you are doing business ... personal!
M. Johnson - Ferndale, WA
Hi. I ordered from you last week and received my product today. I am so excited to use it!! When I received it, I noticed that part of the packaging was broken. I called your company and was connected with the most pleasant Customer Care rep I have ever encountered. I will definitely be ordering from you again and I will tell all my friends about you. Thank you for being wonderful!!
M. Petrich - White Bear Lake, MN
Just started using your products and truly am impressed with the quality and pricing. Thank you.
C. Kurr - St. Charles, IL
I just wanted to say thanks, I just ordered your products so I haven't had a chance to use them yet. I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now and just started acupuncture to assist us. My Doctor recommended checking out the EWG website to check if the beauty products I am using are counterproductive to our goals. I was horrified to find out that every product I have been using had chemicals in them that are toxic to reproductive health. After searching the website I found your products were the only complete lineup that was ranked with 0 chemicals. I am excited to try them. And wish you all the best in your business!
J. Allison - Boulder, CO
Wonderful products. The only organic, chemical-free products I have tried that are comparable to high-end, toxic-laden mainstream products. [Editor's Note: Now THAT's quite the compliment!]
V. Dorcy - San Bruno, CA
[Editor's Note: SO many results from our products that I just had to make a call. It turns out this person is only 20 years old (I probably shouldn't say that but I was tremendously excited!) and took the time to write us such a comprehensive "report". Now that's a beautiful heart.]
Hello there!! First of all, I LOVE the Moisture Cream; it is the best I've ever tried. I also love the Floral Toner, Exfoliating Cleanser and Conditioner. I have to take a lot of medication for a chronic disease so I am always on the lookout for ways to use more natural products and less chemical-filled ones. I also have a lot of recent skin issues as side effects from the medications and all the other store products just seemed to make it worse.
As soon as I used the Exfoliating Cleanser, Floral Toner, and Moisture Cream my skin felt so much better and it felt truly soothed from the inside out. I originally ordered from your website for my younger sister who was suffering from a skin rash on her face, and the pharmacist recommended a cream that was full of chemicals. My mother searched for natural alternatives on EWG and found you guys! The Customer Service was great - the woman we talked to [Patty, President and creator of the line] helped us to find the best choice for us. It took us forever but she didn't mind.
Well, the rash cleared right up after my sister used the Sensitive Skin Care Sample Set. So thank you, I guess is what I'm trying to say!! I have turned my whole family on to you guys. My Moisture Cream just ran out and I will be ordering some right away!!
K. Kolis-Bowler - Cedarburg, WI
So difficult to almost impossible these days to find products such as yours. I ordered Shampoo and Conditioner. What a surprise gift. It was so beautifully packaged and smelled so good from the dried lavender "garnish" that I just stared at it. Just an indication of how great the quality of the product is.
I was a bit leery to order costly products I hadn't tried before. Well, they are great. Take it from a very discerning person. I have tried them all....most don't remove the sebum on the scalp and leave a "greasy" unclean feeling after repeated lathers. The smell of the Shampoo and Conditioner are wonderful. I have chemical sensitivity to EVERYTHING and this works for me. Highly suggested. I will recommend to everyone. Can't wait to try the other products.
G. Der - Haleiwa, HI
[Editor's Note: This one takes the cake! To hear back from someone 9 months later absolutely makes our year!]
Hi! I bought a jar of your Shave Cream in November or December of last year (2008). Thank you very much for the beautiful packaging, the great-smelling dried plant, and the great-smelling shaving cream! I didn't like the smell at first, but I eventually grew to love it! Bye, Mark.
M. Feldman - Laurel, MD
Hello Nurture My Body! If only you could have been a fly on the wall in my house today! It started off with the discovery of a rash on my baby girl's skin. Thankfully I knew just what it was caused from, as I had just begun to use a new skin care line for Violet. I thought a change might be fun; however, as soon as I started to use it on her, I was afraid it would cause problems. Nothing about it appeared to be safe, really. Turns out that after I did some research online, I was right! [Editor's Note: I deleted Company name.]
I decided to go back to the skin care line that we have used on Violet since she was born [Editor's Note: I deleted this Company name also.] It worked well but I learned one thing during my LONG search regarding "safe" and "green" products...READ THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS! Much to my dismay, that skin care line isn't completely safe either. After spending HOURS online researching different lines of organic skincare and finding MANY of the same ingredients, I almost decided to throw in the towel as I was convinced that there must not be any purely organic/safe skin care lines out there for my sweet daughter, Violet.
That is when I stumbled upon the EWG Database. I saw your product, which I have never heard of. Then, when I looked at your page I discovered that there may be a line after all!!! Plus, I was happy to see that you are based out of Washington, as I am now a Washingtonian myself!
For now I am just incredibly happy to have found a company that appears to truly care about people as much as they do their product [Editor's Note: See About Our Products.] I am REALLY looking forward to trying ALL of your products, but must start with a small order, which is what our finances allow at this time.
It is clear to me now that I have to research which ones TRULY are green and not trust the labels. I look forward to using your products and hopefully, to being a lifelong user of them!

I just wanted to let you know that I love your products. After going through Cancer I am trying to avoid all the chemicals that surround us (nearly impossible!) but I was so happy to find a chemical free alternative for the things that I put on my body which I believe is most important next to what we put in it.
Anyway I will continue to be a loyal customer and wish you all the best through this tough economy. Please don't ever sacrifice the quality of your product just to increase the profit margin as I know a lot of companies might do. Times are hard for us too but I am willing to spend a little extra for the cause of my good health. Thanks again for your work.

I just started using your products. What a wonderful difference. Everytime I washed my hair, I was loosing more and more. The drain was always filled with hair. But since I started using your Organic Shampoo and Organic Conditioner my hair really is fuller because I'm not losing it. It's shiney and healthier. Even had someone tell me my hair smelled great! I am also using the Vita C Cream and my face has a new fresh, younger look. I wish I had found you earlier.

Dear Patty & Rich,
I found out about your company from the JuJu Salon website in Philadelphia. I was searching for truly natural hair products and I was intrigued that you used a lot of herbs in your products. I checked out your website several times and read your blog. I found the goat video clip made me laugh and I was very impressed by your Christmas message. I thought, these people really appreciate their customers. I ordered the Shampoo and Conditioner and an added bonus got a discount for ordering on Earth Day.
My package arrived yesterday and when I opened it, it was lovingly wrapped in a beautiful gold tissue with a branch of lavender attached. My receipt was hand signed thanking me. I was impressed! Naturally, I had to wash my hair right then. My hair is very long wavy/curly and dry. My hair felt great but what was even better was the scent of the Conditioner was truly intoxicating, bordering on magical! I love it! These products are excellent and I am just so pleased! Thank you, you have truly made my day, I feel happy and it is SO wonderful to feel appreciated!
[Editor's Note: When I wrote J. back offering our sincere thanks and requesting permission to reprint her words, she said . . .]
Absolutely! Use my comments on your Applaud page. Your company deserves multitudes of kudos. Sorry my answer machine cut you off, I'm impressed that you called. It is such a pleasure to do business with you and your company. You have achieved your intention of great products, touching people's hearts and lifting their spirits.
If you ever decide to expand your product line, please seriously consider natural perfume/fragrances (I adore the scent of the conditioner, there is definitely something magical going on there), possibly room spray or essential oil combo's to use in aromalamps or diffusers, a hair gel/lotion for natural styling and possibly even a spray leave-in conditioner (how heavenly would that be?!)
Thank you and Patty for having the courage to pursue your dreams and start your business and share your gifts with the world. Best wishes and continued success.

Dear Patty Kerr,
I just tried your Volumizing Shampoo and wanted you to know how thrilled I am. I had been using Pureology until I went to the EWG and looked up its rating.....it was awful. That's where I discovered your product. I've been a real advocate of organics (but just because it says organic doesn't mean it's good for you as the EWG points out) both inside and outside my home. I was just wondering if your shampoos come in larger sizes? I look forward to trying some of your other products as well.
[Editor's Note: I wrote G. back thanking her for her kind words and asking for her permission to place her comments on our Applaud Us! page. And, much to my surprise and sheer delight, she brought a tear to my eye answering . . .]
You're welcome, but it's us folks out here who care about this, that thank you and everyone at Nurture My Body for being concerned about how we treat our bodies and the world!

I know that I have already applauded you guys....but I have to tell you this! My son is an adorable 2-year-old and has had eczema on his cheeks which makes his cheeks very swollen and red. We have taken him to his doctor, an allergy doctor and a dermatologist. They have given us creams, etc., which we did not feel comfortable with putting on his face. The warnings would say not to get near eyes because it could cause blindness - and they did not work. I am very happy to say that after using your Organic Baby Care products, his rash is clearing up and his face looks so soft like a baby's face should look! Thank you so much for making such wonderful, chemical-free products! Now we don't have to worry about him going blind! LOL!

I am In Love with your products. I received them today and could not wait to use them. I am trying to help my family become healthier. I purchased the Baby Wash Fragrance Free, Baby Shampoo Fragrance Free and Baby Lotion Fragrance Free for my children and Herbal Body Wash and Herbal Hand and Body Lotion for myself. I love all of it and the prices are great!!!

[Editor's Note: I couldn't pass up sharing this adorable comment with you. The story behind it is: I started to ship this customer's order to the wrong address even after I confirmed that I would make sure to ship it to the corrected address. As soon as the customer received the tracking info via email, the wrong shipping address was immediately noticed and numerous emails were sent to re-remind me of the corrected address. I (humbly) and gratefully replied with extreme thanks for my (caught) mistake; and luckily was able to change labels in time and ship to the right address.] The customer's comments were as follows:
Rich, Sorry - but I am desperate for your products since my boyfriend discovered them. He has to hide his from me and I am already shocked that he found you first. Thanks for the adjustment in the shipping address.
K. Weitzel - West Hollywood, CA
Love your stuff. Am now using the Vita C Cream, as well as other products in your line. Love how soft it makes my skin feel. I am 61 and drying up. :-) It has revitalized my skin!

I just wanted people to know that this is the best products I have ever used in my whole life! I'm from Barcelona, Spain, and I have had to virtualy cross the ocean to find so high quality chemical free cosmetics, and this so exquisite customer service: Absolutely amazing service, good and kind people who doesn't matter how much you are gonna spend in their products. They provide the best service I have ever seen.
When I recieved the order, one of the products was damaged and they didn't hesitate to send me another one at no cost for me without more explanations than my word! Such awesome!
The products have a huge quality and they really works! And the packaging is great, so wonderful! This people knows how to deal with customers and provide a close and human treat to everyone who is interested in whatever related to their products. My sincerly congratulations for all things you have done for me, you've won a new customer from the other Atlantic ocean's side!

On my journey to chemical free products, I stumbled upon this Website. I am totally delighted over all the products I have purchased. The Shampoo is magnificent, as is the Conditioner. I love the Face Moisturizer, Cleansing Cream, and Body Wash. I have very sensitive, dry skin and was searching for safe natural products that would keep me hydrated. These products are a God-send. I am so thrilled that the owners of this company understand how important these products are to the human body.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!
M. Borda - Bowie, MD
I am writing to applaud you on the quality of your products and your company in general - the way the products are made, the way they are packaged, and the friendly, prompt, and personal service I get whenever I place an order. Really outstanding!
I also want to relate my own amazing experience of how your products have made a huge difference in my life. For at least the last 18 years I have experienced a painful skin irritation every time I got finished with my shower - it felt like I was being stabbed with pins and needles for at least 15 - 30 minutes afterward. [I wanted to scratch my skin off, it hurt so badly.] There were no visible skin problems and I felt like I was losing my mind. I went to numerous dermatologists and even had my water tested for chemicals in the water. The diagnoses were that I had dry skin and I should apply heavy, expensive, oily skin creams every morning and every evening. This did not solve the problem -- it only clogged my pores and made me more frustrated, so I just got used to the painful 15 - 30 minutes following each shower.
Within the past year I have made a conscious attempt to take better care of myself, which included using fewer chemicals as part of my personal hygiene routine. When I started researching various hair care/skin care products on the Web, I was shocked to learn that this skin irritation I had been suffering from for nearly two decades actually could have been caused by the products I was using in the shower, as well as the heavy, oily creams I was told to use to help the problem.
Upon switching to your quality organic products, my 18 year old skin problem has vanished - literally, over night! I am thrilled to have found Nurture My Body and your quality line of organic products!
J. Fischer - Newton, NJ
I was away on business and was delighted to find your product waiting for me when I arrived home yesterday. If my first use is any indication of future results, I am beyond euphoric. For the first time, I felt clean without the tingling, stinging, burning sensation I normally feel. I have extremely sensitive skin and have been searching for "my" skin care line for years.
B. Cavage - Carbondale, PA
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You! I just recently discovered Nurture My Body products in a search for safe and effective skin, hair, and body care products. I have very sensitive skin and have had reactions to everything from shampoo and hand soap to the most gentle skincare products.
When I received my Sensitive Skin Care Gift Basket (yes, I ordered it for myself), I felt completely pampered and I hadn't even used the products yet. My order included a handwritten note issuing the most sincere thank you I have ever received from someone I have never met. I felt so special and I still hadn't opened my basket. When I did open my basket, I couldn't have been more pleased and surprised. Each product held a tiny square of parchment paper with quotes from some of my favorite poets, and even a Chinese Proverb. The basket also contained a small hand-crafted journal for 'My Worries'. That extra special gift is exactly what I would want when sending a Gift Basket to someone special or receiving one myself!
The presentation was not the only surprise, though. When I used the skin care products that evening, I couldn't have been more pleased. The gentle Cleansing Milk felt luxurious and soft on my sensitive skin. The Regenerating Cream was rich and thick. It felt so wonderful. And to my amazement, when I woke up this morning, my skin looked soft and smooth, and this after a recent allergic reaction to another facial product.
I am in awe and shock. I had begun to think that a product could not possibly deliver what it claimed. But Nurture My Body products are true to their name. And when I opened my order, I felt as if I had had the most wonderful in-store, in-person experience. I just can't thank you enough for the care and thought that you put into your products and individual orders. I can't wait to try more of your products. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

I just wanted to rave about the products I just bought from you! They smell amazing and work beautifully. I found out about your company through the Cosmetic Safety Database, where you got especially low toxicity ratings. Not only that, but you are a fairly local company to my hometown of Portland, Oregon, so that pretty much sealed the deal for me. And then, to be so pleased with the Shampoo, Conditioner and Eye Cream was just the cherry on top! Thank you so much for striving to create healthy, effective products. Cheers!
A. Pierce - Boxford, MA
Ok, I got this email (notifying me that I won the Gift Box on absolutely the right day for it! It has been a long, hard past few weeks (I'm about to graduate from nursing school) and when I got this email, I wanted to cry. Thank you so much!
M. Zaccheus - Las Cruces, NM
Today is the first time I have heard of your products. I am becoming more and more aware of what goes into and onto my body. I was checking safety ratings on various products using the Cosmetic Data Base online and found your products to have a "0" rating for hazardous substances. Needless to say, yours are the products I will be using from this day forward. Great Work! I will pass the word. Thanks for a great product for me and for the environment!
C. McCauley - Reading, PA
I applaud you every day that I use your terrific products. My daughter and I searched everywhere for products that we could feel safe using. Now, my whole family is using all of your Shampoo and Skin Care products. Not only are your products more safe than most out there, but they work great too! My hair has been so clean and has great body! We couldn't be happier! I tried the Shampoo Bar yesterday and it is as good as your Shampoos. In fact, I need to order back-ups so that we will not run out. Please keep making these quality products!
K. Savarani - Danville, CA
I have received my Gift Box that I won and I just wanted to say Thank You! I love it! I will tell my friends how much I love your products also! They all feel and smell so good!
C. Brack - The Woodlands, TX
I wish to thank you for your exceptional products which have been so healthful and beneficial to my skin and body. I have tried countless and very expensive well-known brands, and have never had the results that I have experienced with your wonderful products.
I also wish to express my appreciation and admiration for your excellent customer service! It's a delight ordering from your company each and every time. Thank you, Nurture My Body, for all that you do!
T. Greenbury - Rainier, WA
I am so excited to try this all-natural product and I have been looking for the oils and scents you use!! You have gone above and beyond to offer me these samples and I truly appreciate it. If you had a testimonial category on your Website I would post about your truly wonderful customer service!! [and thanks to this wonderful person, we have begun Applaud Us!] In these days of modern technology, it is so nice to find a company that brings kindness and the little personal touches that makes you want to support them. Nurture My Body does that - and I have not even bought a product yet! I just asked for a sample! What other company treats everybody with kindness, regardless of whether they spent 100 dollars or 0 dollars?
N. Nusrat - Washington, DC
Thank you so much for creating your product. I am 70 years old and highly allergic to most facial products. My face would break out and I would be miserable. Thank goodness for genetics as with only rinsing my face and not wearing makeup I still have fairly healthy skin. However after I donated my kidney to my husband this February my skin became extremely DRY. I tried your Cream Cleanser, Eye Cream, and Vita C Cream from head to toe and my skin looks and feels like a 40 year old. Thank you so much! P.S. I love the Ginger Hand and Body Lotion.
L. Kerr - Keizer, OR
I was thrilled to receive a gift basket with your Baby Care Products for my Baby Shower. Only the very best is good enough for my baby girl, so I'm very pleased so see that you are only using the finest natural ingredients in your products. As it turned out, after giving birth I was in need of the finest and most gentle products myself. Your Baby Bar Soap came to my rescue, and it is the only soap I found that is gentle enough. You customer service is exceptional. Your products are presented in a truly beautiful and uplifting way that makes every item a little treasure. Thank you for making a difference for my well-being and the Environment!
K. Clare - Rainier, WA
Having been diagnosed with discoid Lupus, I have extremely sensitive and problematic skin. For the past several years I have been very limited in the products I can use, careful to not choose anything that could cause or exasperate a break out. I also do not like to use the steroids prescribed unless I am desperate.
I recently started using the Nurture My Body Cleansers, Moisturizers, Shampoo, and Conditioner, and HOORAY! I have finally found a complete line of products that my skin not only tolerates, but these products actually soothe and diminish my breakouts. AND no steroids needed!
How lucky I am to have these products, and I can highly recommend them to anyone with sensitive skin or specific skin problems. I can't imagine how great they must be for those with normal skin! Oh, I forgot to mention the customer service ~ though I don't think of it as such, I think of it as love.
