Why go natural with your skin and underarm care

So, You’re Thinking About Taking a Walk on the Natural Side?

So, you're thinking about taking a walk on the natural side?



Throughout your life, you’ve been called many things: a weekend warrior, a 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 and more research surfacing to further prove the link between harsh chemicals and health issues, as well as valid research supporting the benefits of using natural ingredients, it’s become mainstream.

We get why you might be a bit cautious at first. Your hiking buddy smells pretty ripe but insists that his “all natural” deodorant gel is working. Your fear is legit, but we’re eager to nip it in the bud and share some of our natural goodness with you. Let’s explore! 


Why go natural with your skin and underarm care? 

Your skin is the largest organ on your body! Whatever you’re slathering on, it’s getting absorbed like a sponge. The vast majority of commercial personal care products contain harsh chemicals like aluminum, parabens, sulfates, and dyes, and your body’s absorption of these has the potential to do some serious damage to your health.

If you can’t pronounce it, why feel comfortable putting it on your body? Going all-natural gives you the peace of mind knowing that 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 too. It’s a feel-good transition knowing that you’re making a smart choice to support a better, healthier you.

In addition, by choosing sustainable products, you’re actively doing your part to make the world a cleaner, greener place. Simply put, we call going natural good, clean common sense!


Tips for making better personal hygiene choices

Since there are so many products on the market that claim to be “natural” or “all natural,” here are some tips to help you navigate your all-natural leap!

  • Not all “natural” products are created equal– “Natural” and “all-natural” are not regulated labeling terms, so there may only be some natural ingredients in the formula. When looking to switch to a product coining one of these terms, do your research and be aware. 
  • Be in the know – Checking your labels and knowing your ingredients are key to making the right product 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, such as 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!

Go Grow Something! A Guy’s Guide to Gardening.

There are a lot of great reasons to control at least a part of your food/beverage supply. Just think of the price tag on “organic” products at the grocery store or the last time you had to settle for wilted seconds. You are also free to experiment with tastier and more exotic varieties than you’ll find at the supermarket (Mojito Mint, anyone?).

You’ve prepared all winter for this battle. It’s going to be hell out there. Blades are oiled, equipment is primed and ready to go, and you’re ready to dominate. There’s nothing like yanking invading plants out by their roots or lopping off unwanted tree limbs with one clean stroke. Nothing can stop you or your power tools as you take the field (or the yard).
