Fresh is best, especially when it comes to beauty care products. Whidbey Island Naturals knows this fact, and they manufacture high-quality offerings with freshness in mind. Their small-batch, all-natural, luxurious soaps and lotions are hand-made on an island in the Pacific Northwest. In 1995, founders David and Kimberley Tiller were inspired by a television program about cold-process soaps. They experienced an “aha” moment, and decided to create their own vegetarian, all-natural, cruelty-free company.
You can read their story on the company website, www.winatural.com. You’ll find a dizzying array of products there, as well. We’re huge fans of bubble baths, but don’t like to soak in harsh chemicals. That’s not a problem with the Deception Pass Rosemary and Eucalyptus For Sore Muscles ($22.00). Nothing is better for soreness than eucalyptus! It’s also great for headaches, especially migraines. Just pour a capful into your tub and luxuriate in the soothing bubbles. Ahhhhhh…
Who doesn’t love a good shea-butter infused skin care product? The Possession Point French Lavender Shea Body Butter for Intensive Hydration ($14.00) will coat your body in nourishing goodness! This five-star rated item contains shea butter, sunflower, jojoba, and vitamin E oils, mixed with lemony May Chang essential oil. You don’t need to use too much of this elixir to achieve incredible results on formerly dry, chapped skin. The wonderful aroma is tranquil and calming, especially if you suffer from work stress.
We don’t know about you, but we never grow tired of trying new shampoo varieties. So many to choose from, but we’re especially excited by Whidbey Island Natural’s Saratoga Passage Lavender, Lemongrass and Clove Natural Castile Shampoo For Healthy Hair ($12.00). This sudsy concoction contains no chemicals or sodium lauryl sulfate. Just nature’s own ingredients. It’s great for color-treated hair. So gentle, you won’t even need conditioner! This shampoo is made with over 70 percent olive oil, so you can feel confident your tresses will retain all the moisture they need to stay healthy.
Whidbey Island Naturals generously offers free shipping on all orders over $25.00. Keep in mind that honey is used in several of their products, so this is not a vegan line. However, there are many vegan offerings. Everything is at least vegetarian, and of course, cruelty-free. Be sure to read labels and write to the company if you have any questions or concerns. Whidbey Island Naturals takes immense pride in their products, and it’s easy to see why. We just love this line, and hope you will, as well.
