Did you know that the average woman exposes herself to hundreds of toxic chemicals everyday before she even leaves the house? Much of this exposure comes from perfumes and personal care products. Perfume, fragrances and preservatives used in mainstream skincare are legally allowed to contain thousands of toxic and/or potentially carcinogenic components. We believe that minimizing these chemicals is a simple step to protecting your health. If you feel the same way come into Nature’s Creations and discover our full line of 100% natural, organic, hand crafted LOCAL products.
