So Will and I changed shampoo, conditioner, soap and my hair styling products. We are now using Yes To Carrots, a company that formulates many basic beauty products from natural ingredients. They use more than just carrots as well. They have coconut, tomato, grapefruit and blueberry as well. They make things for acne prone skin and babies too. I love the way the products smell (they don’t smell like carrots or tomatoes) and even more so I love that we aren’t putting chemicals down the drain and into our septic system, thus into our ground, etc.
They have developed our own Natural Formulations Standard which was inspired by other leading standards such as NPA and Whole Foods. Plus they are Leaping Bunny certified and working on more substantial certifications as they grow.
As far as pricing, I’ve noticed that some of their products are not really any more expensive than Pantene ProV or any other store bought products. Plus, Yes to Carrots can be found at CVS, Walgreens and a bunch of other local stores.
I also feel that the products do a great job at cleaning and conditioning my hair and skin. I haven’t noticed as much dry skin either. I have to say that I am impressed.
