Tom's of Maine Toothpaste

Tom's of Maine Toothpaste

Dietary Needs:
None

Tom’s makes great natural products which are free from artificial ingredients, never tested on animals, and produced using environmentally sustainable business practices. However, some formulations of Tom's toothpaste now include the ingredient sodium laureth sulfate, which has corrosive properties and is much too harsh for our bodies. This is an ingredient that we recommend you avoid at all costs in your personal care products. Tom’s toothpaste is certified Kosher and PETA certified. If you are going to use this product, your best bet is to choose from their fluoride-free varieties.  Click here to check the safety of the personal care product you are using.

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Dietary Needs:
None

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo is great for cleansing while restoring moisture. This healthy hair blend includes Panthenol, Soy Proteins, Vegetable Proteins, Jojoba Oil, Borage Flower Seed Oil, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. We like this product because of the aloe which has been used for centuries for its soothing, hydrating and refreshing properties. Nature's Gate combines natural floral and herbal extracts in hair, body, sun, skin and oral care. Many of their organic products have essences and extracts grown locally in California. We love the environmental sustainability of this product line but like to stay away from any products (shampoos) that contain laurel laureth sulfates.

Living Harvest Hemp Protein

Living Harvest Hemp Protein

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This Organic Hemp Protein is the perfect high performance plant-based whole food. With food allergies on the rise, hemp protein makes for an awesome alternative to dairy, eggs, nuts and soy (all of which are food sensitivities we see on a daily basis.)  Living Harvest Hemp Protein is 100% certified organic, raw, gluten free and vegan. It contains all 10 Essential Amino Acids, a balanced ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids and GLA and an excellent source of fiber. Hemp is our favorite vegan source of protein because we find it is alkalizing, more bioavailable than rice, pea and soy protein and the most hypoallergenic of the plant proteins. Living Harvest believes in sustainable farming practices and are environmentally conscious. Be sure to get the original flavor, because the vanilla spice is sweetened with cane sugar. Check out Living Harvest also for their hemp milk, hemp oil, and hemp ice cream. We like it...all things hemp!
