We’re big fans of Nature’s Gate Pomegranate and Sunflower Nature’s Defense Shampoo ($8.36). This 18-ounce bottle is chock full of aromatic goodness. The pomegranate oil and sunflower seed extract are blended with vitamin E to create a shampoo that cleanses thoroughly without leaving your hair oily or limp. The foamy concoction is specially formulated for color-treated hair. It is gentle enough to use daily. For best results, follow with Nature’s Gate Pomegranate and Sunflower Hair Defense Conditioner ($8.36).
If you want your hands to smell wonderful, stock up on a couple of bottles of Herbal Blend Neroli Orange and Chocolate Mint Liquid Soap ($7.76). At less than eight bucks for a 12-ounce bottle, you’ll want more than one. The scent is reminiscent of a delicious mint cookie! You’ll be searching for excuses to wash your hands. The formula is remarkably gentle, and your skin will feel smooth and silky after your use.
Your mouth will feel and taste minty-fresh after you use Nature’s Gate Crème de Peppermint toothpaste ($6.11). You’ll smile after brushing with this mild, yet powerful paste. Aloe combines with peppermint to create a soothing sensation for your teeth and gums. A little bit goes a long way!
Children have sensitive skin, and you’ll want to protect them from the sun’s harsh rays without slathering their bodies with toxic substances. The Kids Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen ($11.47) is powerful enough to get the job done, but gentle enough so you can use it without concern. The product is infused with natural botanicals, and holds up in the water for 40 minutes. You can safely use it on any child who is six months or older.
Since this is an all-vegan line, dedicated vegans can use any product without concern. Nature’s Gate offers free delivery on any order over $49. At these low prices, you’ll want to stock up for the entire family, and give a few items as gifts for friends. You really can’t go wrong with this company.
