Walk on the natural side with Sam's Natural.

You’ve been called many things: weekend warrior, bad punner, and sometimes an over achiever but never a natural. Although health and wellness have been a priority for you, using natural personal care products never crossed your mind…until now.

Using natural products is no longer a movement favored only by “nature enthusiasts.” With more research around harsh chemicals being linked to harmful health issues and the benefits you gain using natural ingredients, it’s become mainstream.

We get that you might be cautious when taking the leap. Your hiking buddy is pretty ripe but insists that his “all natural” deodorant gel is working. Your fear is legit and we’re eager to nip it in the bud and share some natural goodness. Let’s explore. 

WHY GO NATURAL WITH YOUR SKIN AND UNDERARM CARE?

Your skin is the largest organ on your body so whatever you’re slathering on, it’s getting absorbed like a sponge. Since the vast majority of personal care products contain harsh chemicals like aluminum, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, and dyes, absorbing these chemicals could potentially do some damage to your health. Going natural gives you the peace of mind knowing what you put on your body is safe and free from nasty ingredients.

Aside from natural ingredients, you can earn some good guy status points. It’s a feel-good transition knowing you’re making smart choices to support a better, healthier you. In addition, by choosing sustainable products, you’re doing your part to make the world a better place. Simply put, we call it good, clean common sense.

YOUR BLUEPRINT FOR MAKING BETTER PERSONAL HYGIENE CHOICES

Since there are so many products on the market that claim to be “natural” or “all natural,” below is your blueprint on what to look for when taking the natural leap.

  • Not all “natural” products are created equal – “Natural” and “all-natural” are not regulated labeling terms, there may only be some natural ingredients in the formula. Being aware is first and foremost! 
  • Be in the know –Checking your labels and knowing your ingredients are key to making the right choices.
  • Leave a lighter footprint – Choose products with environmentally friendly packaging for recycling purposes. It’s important to be as gentle to the earth as you are to yourself.
  • Choose a brand you can trust – Select a brand that’s transparent and that you can align your values with, like being eco-conscious, practicing social responsibility, or supporting local businesses.

Follow your natural instincts and kick the chemicals to the curb. Sam’s got your back with healthy and effective natural personal care products so you can walk tall no matter what you do on any given day!

There’s Chemistry Behind Attraction

What’s up with Marc? His stories are legendary, and he gets everyone laughing. He picks up a guitar and pulls it off like he’s Ed Sheeran’s better-looking brother. Marc not only shoots a game of pool like a pro, he volunteers at an animal shelter and dominates in pick-up basketball. The dude just loves life, and he smells good – like, really good. It’s not that in-your-face, try-too-hard cologne smell some guys reek of, but you could swear he just naturally smells like aged leather and cedar. Damn.

“Doing good” used to be a concept relegated to nonprofits and volunteers. Companies were proudly in the business of making money. In the 1980s movie Wall Street, Gordon Gekko summed it up this way, “Greed for lack of a better word, is good.”

But nothing exists in a vacuum. If the last few decades have taught us anything, it is that we live in an interconnected and interdependent world. Making money can’t be the only focus. We have to think about how we go about it, especially when it comes to the planet we all share.

Your body is already a “clean” machine.

You’d think your sweat was a bad thing. What’s up with all those ads for products that promise a powder-puff future of sweat-free living? Walk into any drugstore, and you see antiperspirants lined up like soldiers ready to go to battle to save us from our own moisture. Personally, I like working up a little perspiration – it’s the sign of a hard day’s work or a great workout.
