Nourish Organic

Making Organic Beauty Mainstream

Who They Are

When Nourish Organics was founded over a decade ago, the words “organic” and “beauty” weren’t often seen together. Concerned with the potentially hazardous chemicals that were in traditional beauty products, and by the lack of regulations in the personal care industry, Nourish decided to become pioneers in the organic beauty industry. Fueled by the belief that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it, they set out to create the first line of chemical-free, eco-friendly skincare products.

Nourish was the first beauty company to work directly with the USDA, creating a line of beauty products so pure they could be certified organic under the same rigorous standards that the USDA certifies food with. With that certification in their arsenal, they officially launched Nourish in 2003, and haven’t stopped innovating since.

Today, from the Nourish headquarters in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, they continue to create and produce healthy, concern-free, environmentally conscious products that really work, all certified Made in the USA and gluten-free. Nourish your skin with products that are good for you, and good for the Earth.

Why We Like Them

Nourish knows that what goes into your products is essential. That’s why all of their ingredients are USDA-certified organic, going through rigorous third party testing before they make it to your bathroom. That USDA certification ensures all ingredients are also food-grade, meaning they’re held to all the same standards as organic produce is, ensuring the purest raw materials available. Plus, they’ve made almost all of their personal care products vegan, and never test any products on animals in an effort to live in greater harmony with the environment. This cruelty-free initiative extends to all phases of product development, ensuring no animals are harmed by the company, its laboratories, and its suppliers.

For most Nourish products, ingredients are sourced from local American organic farmers and producers, with only their Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter coming from independent farmers in Ghana. No matter where the origin of the product is, Nourish is dedicated to fair-trade wages whenever possible, and routinely gives back to the cities they work in.

Nourish is here to make a difference, and works closely with and contributes to a number of organizations and charities, including The Women’s Center, Association for the Blind, City Rescue Mission, Meals on Wheels, and the Salvation Army. They support youths through the Big Brother/Big Sister program, and regularly donate surplus materials and products to World Vision. They also contribute towards overseas US military personnel, as well as aiding those affected by the 2010 Haitian earthquake.

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.
