Body Sense: A Higher Standard of in Personal Care with Brittanie's Thyme

Body Sense makes shopping for natural personal care products very easy. Every product on the website receives low scores from the Environmental Working Group (EWG):

Many companies sell products they describe as "natural" or "organic". Some of them are even certified "natural" or "organic" by independent entities. But what do these words really mean? Unfortunately, they are sometimes used too loosely and can be misleading. After all, arsenic and lead are "natural"! At worst, these words can be inadequate proxies for the safety of you and your family. Body Sense sells only products rated by an American non profit organization as having the lowest-hazard potential, on a three-level scale. You will never find a product rated "moderate hazard" or "severe hazard" on our website.

Consumers should know about the possible implications of their daily choices. The importance of a simple decision like which moisturizer to use is magnified when you consider how often you are exposed to the chemicals that may be in it. Do you use moisturizer every day? While a link between cancer and proven carcinogens and other chemicals that are found in many widely available personal care products has not been established, Body Sense believes that consumers shouldn't be forced to take that risk. We believe that given the choice, prudent, informed consumers will opt for a superior product with less chemical risk.

We address this problem by providing a convenient, one-stop shop for all of your personal care needs, and those of your family.

Body Sense sent us a travel set of organic products with a note saying they do not sell the set, but they sell full sizes of the products. When I poked around the website, I could not find them. Hmm, that is a bit odd.

The products in the travel set are from Brittanie's Thyme . None of these products are on the Body Sense site, but I did find the Brittanie's Thyme Mindful Beauty Organic Balancing Toner on Amazon.

All of Brittanie's Thyme products are USDA certified organic, with the exception of our French Green Clay Facial Mask with Organic White Tea, even our bug spray. Our products are also gluten-free by FDA standards.

We produce luxury facial care, cold/sinus relief, and outdoor products while maintaining reasonable prices so you and your family can afford to integrate organic personal care into your lives. Our USDA certification gives you the assurance that Brittanie's Thyme will never "green wash" its products.

Our commitment to Organic Integrity led our being one of the Top Ten Nominees of Green America's "People's Choice Award 2010". We continually strive to source the most environmentally responsible options from ingredients to our PLA labels, our use of renewable energy through our local electricity provider, recycling and composting throughout our manufacturing facility and more.

I do really like how all of the products sold through Body Sense lists the EWG hazard score with the product description. That makes it much easier than going back and forth between whatever site you are ordering from and EWG.

disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
