Pacific Almond Milk

Pacific Almond Milk

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

Made from organic almonds and water with no artificial flavorings or additives. The unsweetened varieties of almond milk are the healthiest. Pacific almond milk has a good flavor, all the enrichments of regular milk and is easy to digest. Almond milk is one of our favorite milk replacements because it is low-glycemic and packed with nutrients (like magnesium) that most Americans don't get enough of on a daily basis. It contains vitamin A palmitate, carrageenan and rice starch – 3 ingredients we think would be better left out if a better substitute could be found.

Pacific Oat Milk

Pacific Oat Milk

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

Keeping ingredients to a minimum is what makes this non-dairy beverage such a delicious, completely lactose-free and cholesterol-free alternative to dairy. Just organic oats combined with vitamins A & D and riboflavin. There is no sugar added, but instead they convert the starch in the oats to glucose for a naturally sweet drink that is nice alone or with cereal, coffee, tea and even in smoothies. There are two ingredients in this milk that would be better left out, carrageenan and vitamin A palmitate. However, you find these ingredients in most milk alternatives.

Collective Wellbeing Charcoal Body Detox

Collective Wellbeing Charcoal Body Detox

Dietary Needs:
None

A great detox product! The charcoal body detox is a full body wash that will help to pull impurities out of the skin (much like raw apple cider vinegar does in baths). The main ingredient is activated charcoal, which is known for binding and absorping toxins.  It also includes super antioxidants such as astaxanthin, from sea algae. This is the first company to make their entire product line paraben-free.  We at TWJ commend all these fantastic pioneer brands who move forward based upon values before anyone else is doing it.

Badger Sunscreen

Badger Sunscreen

Dietary Needs:
None

Badger rocks. A 'green company' through and through. We love this small cottage brand of homemade products from New Hampshire. They support sustainable, organic agriculture through their purchasing practices and charitable contributions. They work hard to be 100% certified organic with products that are 100% chemical and synthetic free. Badger specialize in balms, oils and soaps. This is one of the cleanest sunscreens on the market. This is a Whole Journey favorite sunscreen as it is 100% organic, pure, uncoated, zinc oxide. This is a safe sunscreen for children of all ages.

Badger Baby Soap

Badger Baby Soap

Dietary Needs:
None

Badger rocks. A 'green company' through and through. We love this small cottage brand of homemade products from New Hampshire. They are a highly respectable company supporting sustainable organic agriculture through their purchasing practices and charitable contributions. They work hard to be 100% certified organic with products that are 100% chemical and synthetic free.  Badger specializes in balms, oils and soaps. This baby soap will assist in the night time bathing ritual because it's made with natural calming and relaxing chamomile and calendula (both are herbal botanicals). This product is gentle enough for your little one because it incorporates olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter. Note: Not a tear free formula.
