About Sweetwater Labs Bath & Body Products

All of Our Bath and Body Products are 100% Natural

100% natural bath and body products are generally better for your skin as they are more likely to mimic skin’s characteristics. They are able to be absorbed into skin better and tend to cause less irritation versus synthetic products as they are without harmful chemicals, artificial colors, or other biproducts.

Using non-toxic skin care products allows your skin to get the benefits without the damaging effects. If you use products with artificial ingredients, you are putting toxic chemicals on your skin, and this means you are more likely to have irritation and long-term damage from extended use.

Rashes, itching, redness, inflammation, loss of elasticity, and many other issues are attributed to chemicals found in some skincare products. These chemicals include sulfates, phthalates, parabens, phenoxyethanol, and glycols.

The use of these toxic agents in popular skincare products is a problem that many people have not even thought about. We refrain from their use entirely.

NO HARSH PRODUCTS OR TOXIC INGREDIENTS

Remember, that toxic products are not only harmful to the consumer, the synthetic chemicals found in many beauty products require certain manufacturing processes that harm the environment and the animals in nature. 

By using products containing natural ingredients, you don't need to worry about the possibility of toxic chemicals going down the drain and affecting our air, water and even our animals. The water that goes down the drain is eventually filtered and goes back to our tap water. A natural product gives you one less thing to worry about.

An important fact is that the skin on the face is thinner than on the body therefore the formulations for products for specific body parts are different. We do not recommend using products on areas of the body that they are not intended for as they can cause unwanted reactions and irritations.

We recommend not using harsh products on the skin and instead using natural ingredients that have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, healing and soothing properties, like shea butter, argan oil, jojoba oil, goat's milk, vitamin e, almond oil and many more- which are in our body care products. 


FAQ’s

When we say natural we mean made in nature. We believe in using resources from nature in every part of our lives, especially what we ingest and put on our skin. Our skin is your largest organ of the body and we want to limit chemical absorption into our bloodstream as much as possible. We do not use fillers or water down our products which means they are very concentrated so you use less and they last longer.

We are concerned first and foremost with quality. We source from all over the world and only choose the best ingredients to formulate our products with. We source from the United States, India, France and Bulgaria.

Our products are generally safe for pregnant women (ie our peppermint perfurme roll on is great for relieving nausea + headaches) but please consults your physician if you have any specific concerns.

Our products last up to 18 months. Our Vitamin Face Serum is the only product we have that we recommend to keep refrigerated because it keeps the product fresher for a longer period of time. Refrigeration is not necessary and we recommend keeping it in a cool, dry place.

None of our products are tested on animals. We LOVE animals!

All face care products can be used on the body as products for the face are gentler than skin care for the body while only some body products should be used on the face. Skin on the body is thicker and dryer than that on the face, the oils and creams we use to moisturize tend to be heavier and thicker than what we would use to moisturize the face. Even if your skin is very dry, only use products formulated for your face, on your face to avoid heavier oils meant specifically for the body.

Choosing what to wash your body with is a very important factor for managing oily skin and body acne. Many of us believe it's best to use harsh products to dry out pimples, but this can strip the skin too much and force the skin to produce even more oil than before to compensate for the oil it is now lacking.

Shea butter is used in our Miracle Healing Salve and Cloud Soap. It is often used in moisturizers, creams, lotions for the skin and hair. It is rich in fats that makes it an excellent skin moisturizing agent. It also has shown it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These can help reduce inflammatory skin diseases and the damage the skin and hair have undergone due to free radicals.

Shea butter also contains vitamins A and E, which not only keep the skin in optimal health but also protect it from being damaged by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Vitamin E also soothes dry skin and improves the skin’s elasticity, making this butter a great anti-aging agent.
Vitamin E is used in our Goat's Milk and Vitamin E Soaps, Miracle Healing Salve, Hair Moonshine, Pink Beach and Lash Boom. Vitamin E is an antioxidant.

Antioxidants prevent oxidative damage to cells by helping to remove free radicals. Free radicals on the skin are a result of daily environmental stressors like unprotected sun exposure and air pollution. In fighting off free radicals, vitamin E also helps protect the skin from damage.

Additionally, vitamin E has moisturizing and healing benefits and helps to strengthen skin barrier function. Vitamin E is also a natural anti-inflammatory, so it can be soothing and help calm the skin.

Collagen is used in Pink Beach. Collagen is a protein that is one of the main building blocks for your bones, skin, hair, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is not just meant for your face! Collagen is what keeps our skin from sagging, giving us that plump, youthful look. Your body naturally makes collagen, but this production decreases with age. 

Starting in our mid-20s, we slowly begin to lose collagen. Rule of thumb is that we lose 1% of collagen per year starting in mid-twenties. For women, we can lose up to 30% of our collagen production in the first 5 years of menopause.

Almond oil is used in our Miracle Healing Salve and Cloud Soap. Almond Oil has been used for centuries to soothe the skin and treat minor wounds and cuts. It has been used in ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic practices to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

More than soothing dry skin, almond oil can improve complexion and skin tone. It helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. Because it is antibacterial and full of vitamin A, almond oil can be used to treat acne. Its concentration of vitamin E can also help to heal sun damage, reduce the signs of aging and fade scars. Almond oil soaks in quickly and is a powerful moisturizer, so it can be used on the face or body. 

Jojoba Oil is used in our Fleur Body Oil, Miracle Healing Salve and Hair Moonshine. Jojoba oil is a humectant ingredient. This means that it works to seal your skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. This may help prevent bacterial infections, acne, and dandruff from forming. Our sebaceous glands are microscopic glands in our skin that secrete an oily matter called sebum.

The texture and use of sebum are very similar to jojoba oil, so as we age our sebaceous glands produce less sebum, which is why we get dry skin and hair — it can even lead to dandruff or itchy scalp. Jojoba mimics the role of sebum and works to moisturize the skin and hair when the body stops doing it naturally. 

We almost never have clients react to our products. We cannot guarantee that you will not react as everyone's skin is different and reacts differently to different products. Nadia created everything for her own skin, which is very sensitive. Since all of our products are made with sensitive skin in mind, it means they are made with super nourishing, non-irritating and calming ingredients. Even our products containing glycolic acid, vitamin c or even retinol which tends to be harsh on skin are all formulated to be non-irritating but HIGHLY effective.

Please let us know any allergies you might have so we can direct you to the best options for you. All of all our products are guaranteed.

We send various samples to clients with their purchases. We love for you to try as many products for your skin type as possible and we love to hear your feedback.

Another great way to try products is to try some of our many mini sized packages. Many are created for skin type or concern and others are for you to try our best-sellers.

We create all of our products for sensitive skin so you can choose any! Nadia, the founder and chemist, had very sensitive skin and began Sweetwater Labs because chemically based products would exacerbate her rosacea.

If you have eczema or rosacea, Rescue Me, Rose Face Oil and Rosewater Toner are perfect treatments for that. Pink Beach is a body exfoliant with sugar, salt and collagen. Cloud Soap is a creamy cleanser that leaves you hydrated with coconut oil and essential oils.

Our Miracle Healing Salve is a luxurious shea butter hydrator for the body or face. Our Fleur Body Oil is a great final touch for keeping your body hydrated and the smell is intoxicating!

Rescue Me and Miracle Healing Salve and Rosewater Toner are musts have for eczema, rosacea or any skin irritations. They are perfect for calming and relieving itching.

We make Goat's Milk and Vitamin E Soaps in two options. One soap option has a natural loofah in it to exfoliate and cleanse in one or a regular soap bar without the loofah. Other soaps can strip skin of natural oils and leave your skin tight and dry. Goat's milk is very nourishing for the skin as it is packed with vitamins & minerals and is especially high in vitamin A which repairs skin tissues, and is very gentle to maintain skin's natural moisture levels. Goat's milk also contains alpha-hydroxy acids which helps to gently exfoliate. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and strengthens cell barriers. The natural loofah removes dry, dead skin cells and promotes circulation.

All of our products are made for men and women and we realize that men might not want to smell like roses! We have a great natural face oil for men called Scruff Tonic. Our 100% natural, unique formulation beard / scruff oil works extremely well to keep facial hair healthy and skin moisturized and smooth. Crisp, clean, subtle scent is fresh = woodsy and citrus from a combination of Bay Leaf Oil, Cedarwood, Bergamot and Fir Pine Oils. Our Scruff Tonic doubles as a face moisturizer and beard moisturizer and will leave your skin moisturized and your beard tamed.

Pink Beach and Cloud Soap are also amazing for men's body care. Men also love our Goat's Milk and Vitamin E Soaps. They come in two forms, one containing a natural loofah sponge to exfoliate and the other is a bar without the loofah. Goat's Milk and Vitamin E Soaps are very hydrating and come in 8 beautiful scents. Men usually don't exfoliate so this is a great gift for the men in your life to cleanse, exfoliate and smell great at the same time!

Our Glycolic Scrub Wash is excellent for the face, but was also made to be used on body acne. It will gently cleanse and exfoliate.  Glycolic acid promotes active skin renewal, evens out discoloration and gives skin that extra glow while salicylic acid provides skin clarity. Plant extracts (tiger grass, aloe, lemon peel, lavender, tea tree oil) nourish skin and diminish scarring.
We do not use harmful plastic microbeads. 

Most other scrubs have environmentally harmful microbeads that can be destructive to marine life. Our scrub contains natural biodegradable jojoba beads to gently exfoliate and are friendly to the planet. Use once a week for dry skin, 2-4x week for combination skin, 4-5x for oily skin.   
You can also use Papaya Face Glow on your body for acne prone areas as well. We definitely recommend using it in the shower versus the tub.

You can also use our Revive Glycolic and Rosewater Mask on your body to exfoliate after cleansing. This you would apply outside of the shower and leave on for 15-20 minutes until dry and then rinse off. Our Detox Clay Mask is also a deep cleansing treatment that heals breakouts quickly and shrinks pores. Detox Clay Mask is a powerhouse for acne!

The first step and most important part of healing dry skin is to exfoliate. By using an exfoliant you are removing the layer of dead, dry skin that sits on the top layer of your skin. By not removing this layer your skin can look dry or even flaky, your products you apply will not penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin (they will just sit on top of the dead skin) and your skin will not reap all of the benefits of your products.

Only after exfoliating is your skin ready for hydration. We recommend your next step to be our rich body cleanser, Cloud Soap. Cloud soap is made with shea butter, coconut oil and essential oils to nourish your skin for long lasting hydration. 

Then from there you can apply our Miracle Healing Salve (which comes in four amazing scents, Rose, Lavender, Grapefruit and Mint). This is a shea butter based moisturizer that our clients rave about for their dry skin. Especially great for those really dry areas such as your feet, elbows and knees. 

If you prefer a body oil you can use our beautifully scented Fleur Body Oil which is a mix of jasmine and lavender scents.  

Skin can be naturally dry or experience occasional dryness due to outside elements, like changes in the weather. If that’s the case for you, keeping a few types of body moisturizers handy can work wonders. We recommend first exfoliating your skin.

Everyone needs to exfoliate, not only people with dry skin. Pink Beach is an amazingly hydrating exfoliator for your body. Then from there you might not need a moisturizer because Pink Beach hydrates with coconut oil and essential oils to leave your skin soft and supple.

Or you can use our hydrating Cloud Soap that will cleanse and leave your skin hydrated, but not oily or greasy. If you want to use a moisturizer for your body, you may only need to use it periodically. Two of our favorites are Miracle Healing Salve and Fleur Body Oil. 

Yes we do! We recently created our Mint Shampoo and Mint Conditioner which are both paraben and sulfate free. 

Our Mint Shampoo is infused with moisturizing argan oil, invigorating mint to leave your hair soft with more volume and leaves your scalp feeling amazingly refreshed. Burdock root is added to promote scalp health and hair growth.  Sulfate shampoos damage and clog follicles which can lead to hair loss, scalp irritation and strips hair of natural oils. Our combination of the best natural ingredients will keep your hair healthy, beautiful and clean naturally.   

Our Mint Conditioner is 100% natural, light, sulfate-free, paraben-free and herbal infused. Fortified with argan oil, burdock root (to promote hair growth) vitamins A, B, D & E to make your hair healthy and soft. 

In addition, our Hair Moonshine is extremely popular as a hair and scalp treatment. It works well for itchy, dry scalp and does wonders for hair growth. Please note, it will not make hair regrow that no longer grows. Our 100% natural proprietary formula helps remedy hair loss and improves hair growth and health. Antibacterial properties help to alleviate dandruff, dryness, psoriasis and other scalp irritations. 

Helps hair growth 2x faster with regular use. Use at least twice a week and you can expect  to see results after 1-2 months. This is definitely a customer favorite!

We also have our customer favorite Lash Boom to naturally enhance your lash length. You can also use this on your eyebrows. Lash Boom promotes thicker, fuller and stronger lashes and eyebrows. It hydrates and strengthens your lashes and eyebrows without changing the color of your eyes, like some chemical counterparts. 

Yes, we sell our popular 100% Natural Essential Oil Perfume Roll Ons in nine amazing scents. These are customer favorites because they last all day without the toxic chemicals and tons of artificial fragrances in commercial perfumes. Oil adheres to the skin more easily, that is why our perfumes last all day. Since we do not add fillers and additives, our perfumes are more concentrated, which means you use less of the product and therefore it lasts longer. Another cool benefit of our essential oil perfumes is that you can create a custom scent by mixing two scents on your skin directly. Check out our best selling perfumes here.

Our Miracle Healing Salve is great for burns, cuts and scrapes, sunburn and even eczema, rashes and other skin irritations.

Our Miracle Healing Salve can literally be used from head to toe. It is an amazing lip balm and never leaves you with that waxy feeling.

Our 100% Natural Bug Off bug repellent is a godsend if you tend to get bit! It is a mosquito AND tick repellent and also is an amazing anti-itch relief if you forget to apply. It will soothe your skin and stop the itch immediately. For bug bites AND other skin irritations. 

It is also safe for kids and pets as well. Bug Off is a non oily formula and smells great! Our customers rave about it. 

Two of our main ingredients are proven to be effective against mosquitoes. Lemon eucalyptus oil has been used since the 1940's. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have approved eucalyptus oil as an effective ingredient in mosquito repellent.

The other ingredient, tea tree oil is a popular essential oil from Australia. This oil is known for its antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Recent studies show that repellents containing tea tree oil are effective against mosquitoes, bush flies, and biting midges.

Rose Geranium is a highly effective repellent against ticks (A MUST FOR HIKING).
