The beauty care industry has grown so much over the years, providing a plethora of shampoos, conditioners, hair dyes, soaps, and body washes. In the process, however, the standards for the quality of the products we use have gone downhill. Many beauty products are full of harmful chemicals and additives, and animals have been subjected to torturous testing in order to determine if they are safe for human use. Animals should not have to suffer for our beauty. In addition to the plight of animals, studies have found that the parabens and other chemicals in our beauty products can cause allergic reactions, and in some cases, cancer can occur with the prolonged exposure to these chemicals.
As a result of these studies, it is clear that if we are able to find natural ways to achieve the same result, we should pursue that. Nature’s Gate is a company that has been providing natural beauty supplies for over 30 years. Using nature as their inspiration, Nature’s Gate’s founders collected rainwater, blended it with natural herbs from their herb shop and created the very first shampoo made from rainwater. Nature’s Gate is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, PEG, EDTA, butylene glycol, and animal ingredients. From their beginning, Nature’s Gate’s founders have also been committed to making sure their products are not tested on animals.
Since they started, their line of shampoos and conditioners has increased to include an amazing array of herbal scents. There are shampoos and conditioners that contain aloe vera, hemp, henna, chamomile, tea tree, biotin, and jojoba. Their Pomegranate Sunflower shampoo and conditioner, for example, helps to protect your hair against color fade, while the Hemp shampoo and conditioner has been proven to calm frizzy hair. They also have an organic line of products as shown in the pictures to the left.
Finding beauty products that are free of harmful chemicals and preservatives used to be difficult, but with the increase in awareness of these chemicals, some local stores were opened specifically to provide this service. Down to Earth in Granger and Garden Patch in Mishawaka are both excellent sources for all things natural and organic.
Nature’s Gate is clearly committed to a green planet, having recently partnered with WaterAid, supporting the use of rainwater to help families and children in Asia and Africa to have a continuous supply of safe, clean water.
