Are you in need of natural products? Pregnant or not, it’s SO hard finding companies to trust with your health. Nine Naturals is on a mission to make “beauty simple, smart and safe for moms and moms-to-be.” They only use natural and organic ingredients which makes me 100% confident to use them on my body. Your skin absorbs whatever you apply to it within 26 seconds of application, do you know what is in the products you’re using? With Nine Naturals, you don’t have to guess.
I love finding great brands for skin care and especially hair care. I like to switch up the shampoo and conditioners that I use. Considering I only wash my hair once a week, the products have to be really good! Granted, I’ve trained my hair to only need to be washed weekly and I use dry shampoo as needed but I have noticed a HUGE difference in my hair health by doing so. The Citrus and Mint Nourishing Pregnancy Shampoo and Conditioner smells SO good and makes my hair so soft and manageable. It’s sulfate free and makes your hair smell like lemon, lime and peppermint, I love the way it makes my hair smell after it’s washed. It’s not to strong so it’s overwhelming but just right and doesn’t give me a headache. The hair care has coconut-derived soaps that cleanse gently so it’s great for everyday use, jojoba seed oil in it improves hair’s elasticity and suppleness, shea butter restores moisture and sunflower seed oil enhances hair strength and shine. I apply the shampoo to my scalp, lather then rinse then apply the conditioner to the ends and let it sit for a few minutes before washing it out. The key to having week long hair is making sure to blow dry it after you bathe.
When thinking about hair care, I came across their body care products and fell in love! The Citrus and Geranium Body Wash smells amazing and makes my skin feel silky smooth. The body wash ingredients include lemon, lime and geranium essential oils which work to help stabilize your emotions and hormones! I think that is the coolest feature of this body wash, what preggo doesn’t need help in that department? Also on the ingredient list is coconut-derived soaps, avocado oil, Cupuacu butter and Allantoin which all work together make your skin moisturized, healthy and silky smooth long after you leave the shower.
Something really hard to find regardless if you’re pregnant or not is a natural deodorant that works! I always try new deodorants so when I saw that Nine Naturals had one (and that it was unscented) I knew that I wanted to try it. It’s really important for your health that you use a non-aluminum deodorant (type your current one into the Healthy Living app and see what the ingredients are linked too). This one by Nine Naturals uses non-nano zinc oxide to naturally control bacteria and tighten pores. It doesn’t burn when applying after shaving because the organic shea butter moisturizes your skin. I also love that the use of coconut butter in the ingredients leaves a natural fragrance that isn’t overpowering.
Through three pregnancies, my skin has stretched and shrunken in less than five years! I don’t have horrible stretch marks but I want to keep them at bay. The Vanilla + Geranium Regenerative Belly Butter has become one of my favorite products during this pregnancy. “It’s crafted from rich, organic emollients like broccoli seed oil, shea butter and cupuaçu butter. Each ingredient is packed with restorative omega fatty acids and works deep within your skin’s connective tissue to dramatically improve elasticity, control stretch marks and fight itchiness. The dry-touch formula of this pregnant belly cream leaves the tummy grease-free. This belly butter can also be used as an all-over stretch mark body lotion.” I apply the Belly Butter after my bath or shower directly to my belly, tights and breasts and it leaves my skin silky smooth all the while working to keep stretch marks away!
I really like finding new products that are formulated for my health and WORK! Once you take a walk from the chemical side, the natural side can be difficult to navigate and I’ve tried so many products that do not work. Nine Naturals is a MUST in my book if you’re a woman and/or expecting! Take your health into your own hands and use products that you know are safe and effective.
