Nourish Organic Food for Healthy Skin

I recently had the opportunity to try a nearly one-year-old brand, Nourish Organic Food for Healthy Skin, marketed as the world’s first U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), 100 percent-certified organic bath and body collection.

What does that mean?

It means that Nourish products are made with nutrient-rich, USDA-certified organic fruits, vegetables and plant extracts to “feed and treat the skin the way nature intended,” according to a press release.

I tried three of the brand’s new products, including:

  • Organic Body Wash
  • Organic Raw Shea Butter
  • Organic Hand Wash

Let’s hop into some mini reviews, shall we?!

Organic Body Wash

Here’s the ingredients: 

nourish body

I’ve been using this Almond Vanilla scented body wash for more than a month, as I received it prior to leaving for Cosmoprof in mid-July.

It’s key organic ingredients are aloe, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, sesame seed oil, shea butter, coconut milk, tocopherol (vitamin E), jasmine and marshmallow root extract.

I find the scent, Almond Vanilla, to be a light, very organic scent. It’s not overly sweet, and it’s very raw. I can’t think of how else to explain it. It’s pleasant, but not overpowering. I don’t have the scent on my skin as I go about my day, and it doesn’t fill up my entire bathroom as I bathe. Here’s how it lathers up:

As far as moisturizing, it’s very nice.

This also comes in other scents (and unscented): Wild Berries, Lavender Mint and Fresh Fig.

Nourish Organic Body Wash is available for $9.99 for 10 fl oz., on the Nourish site here.

Organic Hand Wash

Here’s the ingredients:

nourish hand

Nourish Organic Hand Wash includes key ingredients like coconut, sunflower and sesame seed oils, shea butter, coconut milk and healing quinoa protein to moisturize, nourish and replenish hands, according to the brand.

I tried this in the brand’s new Spiced Citrus scent (it’s also available in unscented, Wild Berries, Lavender Mint, Almond Vanilla and Fresh Fig).

Here’s how it lathers up:

I love the formula on this. It’s gentle, effective, and my hands do feel soft after use. The down side? I don’t like the scent. It smells gross to me. I think I would dig this a lot more in a Lavender Mint or Wild Berries scent.

Organic Hand Wash retails for $7.99 for 7 fl and is available here on the Nourish site.

Organic Raw Shea Butter

Here’s the ingredients:

nourish shea

Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter is one of the brand’s new launches. I’ve used this raw shea butter on my hands, and targeted my cuticles for moisture and healing. I really like it. It’s thick, and pure!

Here’s how it looked on the back of my hand. It’s thick, and gives me a healthy glow:

Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter is available for $13.99 for 5.5 oz and available here on the Nourish website. It will be available at select Whole Foods markets, as well, as of this month.

Overall, the products I’ve tried from this line are nice, have the benefit of being all organic, and are set at a price point that is VERY friendly for the wallet. I’m actually very shocked that I can get organic shea butter for $13.99, when I go to some stores that charge way more for it. This brand gets thumbs up from me all around (except maybe for that stinky Spiced Citrus scent; others may like it, but I just don’t! I used the product anyway, because I did enjoy how it felt on my hands!)

Does this brand pique your interest? In addition to being USDA-certified, Nourish is also cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan. I dig it! I’d love to know your thoughts!
