To achieve optimal health many don’t realize what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. Everything from pollution in the air to the shampoo you use is absorbed by the skin and finds its way into the bloodstream. Having a full understanding of your personal care products is paramount to maintaining a healthy body. Choosing the right personal care products can be intimidating. Consumers are given hundreds of choices and many products advertise doing the impossible – halting or reversing aging skin. Most products promoted as “anti-aging” contain harmful synthetics, which can actually accelerate skin damage and cause unpredictable variations in skin cell functioning in addition to creating internal issues for the liver, kidneys, and lungs. There are 515 chemicals women put on their bodies every day! Keep in mind, this is just an average number, for some that number is even greater.

Make your own selection
Careful selection of ingredients is paramount in formulating effective and healthy personal care products. Mother Nature has provided so many beneficial botanicals, each with specific properties necessary to maintaining youthful skin, and many companies use the natural ingredients when formulating their products.
“At NaturOli Beautiful, we carefully research and select natural ingredients when formulating our line of personal care products. We embrace the power and importance of the olive, using olive oils and extracts as the foundation of our line. Olive oil is an excellent source of vitamins, abundant in fatty acids and high in antioxidants. The use of natural botanical oils won’t clog pores and can be easily absorbed thus increasing elasticity, hydrating and replenishing deeper dermal layers – without adversely affecting the health of the body. We are proud to offer simple, but effective products for all ages, utilizing many ancient ayurvedic ingredients known to promote healthy, younger looking skin. We focus on eliminating the number of products consumers use to maintain their skin, offering truly natural products with easy to read/understand 100% full ingredient lists, and educating the consumer on the importance of using natural products. “ – said Jessica Osegueda Director of Operations NaturOli Beautiful.
The perfect duo
NaturOli’s Deep Conditioning Facial Wash and New Radiance Facial Crème are the perfect duo for any facial care regime; the use of these two products combined eliminate the need for additional “day” or “night” moisturizers, “eye” serums, blackhead removers, and many other beauty products marketed as a “must have”.
Your hair enjoys natural care
NaturOli’s hair care line does the same for your hair what creams for your skin, “We offer two variations of shampoo, Extreme Hair – one for oily hair and scalp, the other for dry hair and scalp. Our shampoo is one of a kind in that the main ingredient,sapindusmukorossi (Soap Nut/Berry) extract, has been used in the raw form for centuries in Indian and Asian cultures as a hair and scalp treatment. Soap nut extract can also be used to reduce dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, and many other ailments. NaturOli is the first to introduce a natural shampoo featuring this ingredient in the US market. This shampoo is gentle enough to be used on the entire body, eliminating the need for an additional body wash. It also contains nourishing botanicals that restore luster and shine to dull dry hair, eliminating the need for a moisturizing conditioner. However, for those with extra dry or frizzy hair, we offer the perfect complement to our shampoos -”leave-in” oil based Anti-Frizz Hair Serum. This serum is packed full of ultra-moisturizing ingredients, including Morrocan Argan oil. Argan oil has long been used to condition split ends and is proven to make hair softer and shinier. Like most of our products our serum is quite versatile; it can also be used to relieve dry cuticles and cracked heels, or under eye bags and discoloration.Readers can check out these products and the rest of NaturOil line at www.naturoli.com “ – Jessica Osegueda states.
