5 Reasons to Give Natural Gifts This Holiday Season
It’s about that time when we start making mental notes about what gifts to buy for friends and family. As you’re thinking about what gifts to buy for your friends and family this holiday season, consider giving the gift of healthy skin.
Quality, natural products make great holiday gifts for your family and friends. Plus, Bend Soap Company makes it easy to find a variety of products and gift sets at an affordable price point. Here are five great reasons to choose natural this holiday season!
#1 Encourage clean living
Each day, the average American slathers on countless toxic, chemical ingredients onto their bodies just by using big name brand soaps, lotions, and other routine skincare products.
“Of the more than 80,000 chemicals currently used in the United States, most haven't been adequately tested for their effects on human health.” - Natural Resources Defense Council
Commercial soaps, lotions, deodorant – all of these everyday products can contain harmful chemicals, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, GMO oils, preservatives, and other “junk” ingredients that are known to damage and irritate (even harm!) the skin. Give natural gifts this year to encourage friends and family to be conscious of what they’re putting on their skin!
Before you make a b-line to your bathroom and start tossing out all of your skincare products, check out this blog post to begin educating yourself about the ingredients that are being used to make the products you and your family rely on.
#2 Great Gifts for eczema or psoriasis sufferers
Chances are you probably know someone who suffers from painful symptoms of itchy, cracked, and bleeding skin. While there’s no cure for eczema, making the switch to natural skincare products has been known to greatly reduce symptoms and soothe irritated skin. Our Best for Eczema featured product collection contains all of our most popular products to use on eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and other common sensitive skin related issues.
#3 Give the kids in your life a healthy head start
Give the kids and teenagers in your life a leg up in life with natural, healthy skincare products. Goat milk soap contains natural bacteria-fighting organisms that combat acne. Teens (and adults!) can wash their face and body with our collection of recommended products for acne.
And let’s not forget deodorant! Skip the chemicals and try baking soda or baking soda free natural deodorants to keep the teen in your life healthy and fresh.
#4 Easy stocking stuffers
Our natural skincare products smell delicious and are the perfect size for stocking stuffers! Goat milk soap is not just any soap casually stuffed in a stocking. Your recipients will experience the difference with the soap thick lather and natural moisture barrier.
Each bar of our soap is made with fresh, raw goat milk straight from the farm, essential oils (found in some, but not all of our scents), and a blend of non-GMO natural oils for a touch of hydration and moisture. Wrap and stuff our natural soaps, lotions, and deodorants in your family’s stockings this year!
#5 Shop small and shop local
Do you know where you Christmas gifts come from? When you choose Bend Soap Company products, you’re choosing to give your friends and family gifts that are made from a family run farm in Bend, Oregon where our goats are the stars and their milk is the prize ingredient! Giving the gift of local and natural means your gifts are handcrafted with premium ingredients — no chemicals and zero junk!
