When you make the switch to natural products, nail polish is, unfortunately, one of those items you quickly figure out is not going to be 100% natural. For some that means cutting it out of their routine completely (I give you all major props!). For others, like myself, we cannot stand to see our toes without some color on them, so we must search for the best possible formulas. Those formulas are usually 5-free, which means the nail polish does not contain the 5 most toxic ingredients that most polishes do have.
Those ingredients are:
There are more and more nail polish brands working to eliminate as many toxins as possible and be 5-free. One of my favorites is Pistol Polish. They have a ton of awesome colors, and promote being for modern women who are go-getters. They are also cruelty free and made in the USA – which you know we love!
We are currently running a fabulous fall giveaway with Pistol Polish as well! See details and enter to win below:
The focus can often fall on women when discussing the need for natural products, but it is important that men read labels and avoid chemicals as well in order to protect their health.
Prostate cancer currently affects an estimated 3 million U.S. men and it is more likely to develop in a non-smoking man than colon, bladder, melanoma, lymphoma, or kidney cancers combined. In honor of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Nurture My Body is going to donate 1% of all sales during the month of September to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
I thought this would be a good opportunity to highlight some of our products that are great natural additions to any man’s routine. (And any woman’s too!)
Shop now to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
1% of all sales will go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Including these products!
The Prostate Cancer Foundation is committed to funding and accelerating prostate cancer research in the search for a cure. They also advocate for greater awareness of prostate cancer. Between 1993-2013 the PCF raised more than $575 million dollars for their cause.
You will be hearing from me every week, but I thought it might be nice to change things up this week so you all can meet Maddy - our Warehouse Manager!
She gives a delicious looking recipe for Quinoa and Roasted Veggie Salad with Brazil Nut Pesto that could inspire tonight’s dinner and a book recommendation for anyone looking for an end-of-summer read.
Meet Our Warehouse Manager - Maddy
1. What does a typical day look like for you at Nurture My Body?
Getting orders ready and out the door, checking inventory, assembling product, etc.
2. What aspect of your job do you enjoy most?
I really like order fulfillment. I myself love getting mail and packages, so it is really cool to be apart of that excitement with our customers. I like to think that each customer can see all the work that goes into each product.
3. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spare time? Just kidding! I like to head over to the White Water Center with my doggies, go mountain biking, play rugby, etc. Really anything outside.
4. What is the last book you read?
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
5. What is your perfect meal?
This is the hardest question! I love to cook so this is a recent perfect meal. I bought too many veggies at the farmers market and had to use them ASAP. I made a roasted veggie salad with quinoa, but used store bought pesto. Check out the recipe here.
