Ever since I moved to Seattle, the Emerald City, and was surrounded by beautiful nature, I started becoming more environmentally conscious and aware of any product purchases and its impact on me, others as well as the environment. I have learned to read labels and only stick with simple products or products that are made from ingredients that I recognize. I’d like to make sure that I do research on brands and would not give any reviews unless I have tried on myself and loved. So for today’s blog post, I partnered with Nature Box™ and its parent brand is called Henkel®.
Nature Box™ is a new beauty (hair and skin) brand in the U.S. that combines effective beauty care with 100% cold pressed oils and sustainably sourced ingredients. All Nature Box™ products are vegan, and many of their formulas are completely free from sulfates, silicones, parabens, and artificial colorants.
5 product lines include:
100% Cold Pressed Avocado Oil
100% Cold Pressed Apricot Oil
100% Cold Pressed Almond Oil (No hair products in Almond Oil Variant)
100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
100% Cold Pressed Macadamia Oil
Cold Pressed Technology
Cold pressing is known to be one of the best methods to extract oils from fruits or nuts. I remember learning about cold pressed oils in my Organic Chemistry class in college. The process involves exerting pressure without using excessive heat, and as the result, the oil’s integrity such as colors and fragrances are preserved. All essential nutrients, antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins such as A, B, C, and E are also retained.Sustainability projects
Guar is a natural thickening agent used in Nature Box™ products. Since 2017, Nature Box™ has worked in the sustainability project in India to help local farmers sustainably plant, cultivate, and harvest guar. They also receive social support like creating their own kitchen gardens to feed themselves in a self-sufficient and healthy manner.
Palm oil in Nigeria – Nature Box™ joined Solidaridad organization to supporting small farmers in the sustainable cultivation of palm oil. This enables local farmers to increase productivity and reduce negative impact on the environment.
Henkel® is committed to encouraging consumers in package recycling. All Nature Box™ products have How2Recycle® labels to provide consistent and transparent on-package recycling information to the public. In addition, for the majority of the Nature Box™ line, 25% of the packaging is made from post-consumer recycled plastic.
I have picked out Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Apricot Oil shampoo and conditioner from Amazon and used it couple times now. My hair gets really dry especially in the winter, so I always make sure to use products that are not stripping and moisturizing. The apricot scent in these products is on a sweeter side. It smells fruity and lovely! I have short hair, so I’d like to focus the shampoo on the roots and the conditioner towards the ends of my hair. I love almond scented body products, and the Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed body shower gel and moisturizer in Almond are perfect. It is formulated for sensitive skin, so it is gentle, moisturizing, but not greasy at all.
I also love that all Nature Box™ products are retailed at such affordable prices and are conveniently sold on Amazon. I got mine delivered in just two days using Amazon Prime, of course!
