Corn, What is it?
A fine, extremely gentle exfoliant made from ground natural corn cobs. Where it comes from? Their corn cob grits start as corn grown on American farms, mostly in the Midwest.
Why it's good for you:
Coconut Oil, What is it?
The milky liquid that comes from pressing the freshly grated meat of ripe coconuts. Its farily high fat content makes it an exceptional skin moisturizer and softener. Where it comes from? Coconut milk comes from the seed of the coconut palm, a tree that grows in most of the tropical and subtropical areas of the world.
Why it's good for you:
Cocoa, What is it?
The bean or seed of the cocoa tree (Themobroma cacao). Although most widely loved for its yummy flavor and mood-boosting abilities, cocoa also contains vital nutrients that are wonderfully beneficial to skin. Where it comes from? Cocoa beans come from trees grown mainly in hot, rainy, equatorial regions of the world. A delicate crop, it grows largely in the shelter of larger trees and doesn't usually bear fruit until its fifth year.
Why it's good for you:
Shea Butter, What is it?
One of the world's richest moisturizers, shea butter is the natural fat extracted from the nut of the African Karite Tree. It is rich in protein and vitamins. Where it comes from? The Karite Tree, whose nuts produce shea butter, grows exclusively in West Africa. The extraction and production of shea butter is an important income source for many of the people in West Africa—so much so that it is sometimes referred to as "women's gold."

Nourish is the first personal care line of products certified to the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) at 95-100%; the original line was launched in Fall, 2004. The line was revised and re-launched in June, 2008. Some NEW, Some Improved--even better than before! We are guided by centuries-old wisdom integrating many cultures, and their experiences regarding the benefits of herbs, fruits, flowers, vegetables, and grains----organic foods, which nourish the skin. Formulas promote radiant, healthy skin and support healthy lifestyles. Simply, products are foods for your skin. Nourish products proudly display the USDA organic seal and contain NO CHEMICALS---ABSOLUTELY NONE! The USDA seal is your only assurance that products which claim to be organic, really are according to the strict standards of the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP).
Imagine products without chemicals... Who says that body washes have to be clear or pastel-colored or have to smell like real botanicals don‘t? We do not use any artificial colors, fragrances, or preservatives. These products are the “real deal”. Try finding personal care without chemicals; “they” say it can’t be done. We said that we could make products without chemicals and did; it was not easy but we did it! Sure, Nourish products are not like other personal care products with chemicals but who wants them to be anyway? It is the chemicals which dry or irritate skin, making skin even more sensitive than it is. Your skin is no more cleansed by using a clear shower gel versus one naturally colored? The products perform and do what we say they will. Honestly organic. These products do not need chemicals to be effective. Try them, use them and please tell us what you think. Expect them to be the purest personal care products you could ever use. Organic is really about connection: nature, personal health and the environment. Just be sure if you want organic, that it really, truly is.
