Welcome to my first giveaway!!!! Yippee! And what better way to kick it off than by co-hosting this week-long giveaway with a fabulous group of mommy bloggers from across the US and Canada. I am so lucky to be involved with a great group of women who are all passionate about the health and safety of our families and everyday products.
I am even more excited to be giving away toxic-free goodies from the Brooklyn, NY based company, Nine Naturals. They make personal products which are smart and safe for moms and moms-to-be. They craft their products using only natural and organic ingredients, which include shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, deodorant, body wash, sunscreen and lip balm.
For a health conscious mother or mother-to-be, many of us are aware as to the dangers of eating genetically modified foods and foods sprayed with pesticides. We know the dangers of drinking large amounts of caffeine, alcohol, and/or smoking during pregnancy. However, not a lot of attention is spent on the dangers of slathering disease-causing chemicals and endocrine disruptors on our bodies, which are found in most mainstream personal products. Especially, since they are used on a daily basis!
Just think about this – the skin is the largest organ, and it absorbs whatever is put on it very quickly, traveling into the blood stream, moving around the body, and of course potentially affecting the fetus.
So What is Available and Safe to use during pregnancy
Nine Naturals are 100% plant-based products, which are free of all the nasties one wants to avoid like, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial preservatives.
All Nine Naturals products are derived from nature and there is absolutely nothing artificial in their formulas. Additionally, all the ingredients have been pre-screened to make sure that they are safe for Mom and Baby, which is very reassuring. Nine Naturals also happily discloses all additives that they use, and I love that, as most companies do not tell you what they are putting in their products.
I love the fact that Nine Naturals offers an unscented body butter, since sometimes scents can put moms-to-be over the edge! Other essential oil based fragrances that are used in Nine Natural products have been formulated to ease common pregnancy complaints like morning sickness and fatigue – so thoughtful!
The Nine Naturals website is also filled to the brim with information, like their handy explanation of all ingredients used in their products, which you can see HERE.
You can order Nine Naturals from their website easily. Free shipping is contributed on all USA orders of $50+, a 10% off coupon is emailed to you if you sign up for their email list, and they offer a $5 sample set to try their shampoo and conditioner (just in case you want to try it first).
Nine Naturals is a small, caring company, who is focused on making a mother’s pregnancy and day to day, a little less stressful. Please visit their website and check them out for yourself! 🙂
