    Below are the products I have used and love along with the product description.

    Tea Tree Shampoo & Conditioner
    Our Tea Tree Shampoo gently cleanses hair to help balance irritated, flaky scalp. Naturally purifying Tea Tree Oil is combined with a unique blend of herbs and our 7 Healthy Hair Nutrients to nourish, calm and soothe. This comforting shampoo is ideal for everyday use, leaving hair beautifully shiny and healthy.

    No more flaky scalp for me! Plus I love the smell!
    Hemp Shampoo & Conditioner
    Nature’s Gate Hemp Conditioner effectively conditions hair to help restore natural moisture balance. Hair is nurtured with essential fatty acids (EFAs) from Hemp Seed Oil and our unique blend of 7 Healthy Hair Nutrients, taming frizz and flyaways. With the renewing properties of Milk Thistle and Elderflower, this conditioner leaves hair silky soft and smooth.

    Exclusive healthy hair blend includes Panthenol, Soy Proteins, Vegetable Proteins, Jojoba Oil, Borage Flower Seed Oil, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

    – Hemp Oil, rich in omega fatty acids, helps restore moisture and add shine

    – Jojoba Oil helps restore hair’s natural moisture level

    – Soy Proteins fortify hair and bring out its natural luster

    – Vegetable Proteins help diminish the appearance of split ends
    I know this works well because I can go a day or two without feeling the need to wash my hair (itchy scalp, oily strands etc).
    Sport Mineral Sunscreen SPF 20
    Our mineral-based Sport SPF 20 sunscreen goes on easily and works effectively, providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and 40 minutes of water resistance. It contains Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide which work by scattering light rays instead of absorbing them. This fragrance-free lotion absorbs quickly and is ideal for active people and sports enthusiasts. Milk Thistle and Mimosa Bark extracts refresh and moisturize skin.

    Free of Oxybenzone, Parabens, Phthalates, Fragrance, Animal Derived Ingredients and never tested on animals 

    You have to rub this in very very well but it protects nicely and really lasts. It’s one of my favourites for hiking or running outdoors because it won’t sweat off.

    Velvet Moisturizer Body Wash in Pomegranate Sunflower
    Hydrates and pampers skin with ultra rich moisturizers and lather while age defying antioxidants and nutrients nourish skin. Our unique combination of 7 skin conditioning moisturizers deliver rich, long lasting hydration. Skin is left soft and supple. 
    This was the first Nature’s Gate product I ever used and I fell head over heels. It smells amazing and is so moisturizing! I can even shave with it, it’s that moisturizing.
