These days I am paying a lot more attention to certain things in the beauty industry. Who owns the company? Does the company have ethical business practices? What is their goal, and what is their commitment to giving back to society? I like to support companies who think it is important to strive for more than making money and Green Goo is definitely a company that caught my interest based on their mission.
Green Goo is a woman owned and family operated business. They use homeopathic herbal wisdom and natural ingredients to create fantastic body care products. All ingredients are organic, and Green Goo is a certified B Corporation, committed to donating a percentage of their profits to people who are instrumental in making our world a better place for everyone.
Green Goo has lots of first aid products that don’t increase resistance to antibiotics and I hope to try some of them soon. They also have some really cool looking products for ‘fur and feathers’, homeopathic pet care items. This time I went for two of their body products: Cinnamon & Aloe Mighty Handscrub Bar ($5.95) and 100% All Natural Deodorant Travel Stick ($5.95).
The Cinnamon & Aloe Mighty Handscrub Bar smells amazing. The cinnamon is quite pronounced, but it isn’t bitter the way an overabundance of cinnamon can get. The soap smells like a Red Hot…remember those?? The cinnamon stimulates the skin, creating a warm sensation. Anyone into gardening or working with their hands will love this exfoliating soap. It’s actually terrific for anyone who washes their hands all the time because it has tons of soothing aloe.
It’s great for stimulating circulation while also making skin super soft. Green Goo has lots of soaps from shampoo bars to deodorant bars and if you plan to try some be sure to put a bar of the Cinnamon & Aloe into your shopping cart.
The All Natural Deodorant comes in three different scents – Lavender & Thyme, Lemongrass & Sage, Rose & Geranium – as well as in unscented. You can buy a full size or a handy .6 oz travel size, which is what I tried. I’ve tried a lot of natural deodorants in the past and find that most of them don’t really work for me. This one, however, does work and it’s super gentle and free of aluminum and propylene glycol.
My 17-year-old daughter saw it and asked if she pretty please could have it…the travel size is fabulous and an all natural deodorant that works is a real find. I finally relented, but I am going to pick up the Lemongrass & Sage version to replace it.
Green Goo is the kind of company that I can really get behind. The products are organic and based on homeopathic herbal wisdom, and Green Goo is committed to helping the environment and helping people. I love this company and I am sure you will too! – Lisa
