Based on the truth that what goes on your body goes into your body, Intelligent Nutrients products are free from allergenic and harmful chemicals.

Oil is the new Lotion.

Lotion loyalists: We’re sorry to crash your seemingly perfect world of hydration. You thought you had a good thing going…but hey—wouldn’t you want to know? Truth: creamy texture but an illusion. Most lotions add up to 70% water, emulsifiers, and other miscellaneous ingredients just to create the creamy. Some of these additives aren’t necessarily beneficial or great for your skin. In fact, some of the emulsifying processes used by conventional lotions create known carcinogens and pollute ground water sources. 
Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Essential oils, on the other hand, are 100% pure hydration. Unlike lotion, our oils are also naturally:
Non-comedogenic: meaning, they won’t clog your pores!
Cleansing—oil removes oil, so massaging an essential oil into your skin will naturally remove build-up on hair and skin.

Clear skin for the win.

They also multi-task:
Use as massage oil to soothe sore muscles
Soften the summer-crispy ends of your hair.
Breathe in the health benefits of essential oils.

Ah, but aren’t they… OILY?

Forget the nasty, slicky, even sticky, quick-hand-me-a-towel oils of yore.

Used in the correct amount, essential oil isn’t like that. Promise. A drop of oil covers the same area as several pumps of a conventional lotion. Oils immediately absorb into the skin and protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier, preventing moisture from evaporating quickly – so your skin feels soft and hydrated longer.
​​The best way to apply essential to massage into damp skin after a shower. If time permits, it’s best to wait 3 minutes (mini-meditation, anyone?) before getting dressed to allow oils to really sink in.

​Bright, spicy, soft mint, citrusy, floral: Pick your pleasure and try one of our USDA Certified Organic, food-grade essential oil Elixirs for glowing summer skin.

A bit of "Good to Know" info...

C E R T I F I E D   O R G A N I C  Organic agriculture improves living matter in the soil, supports the air quality and builds up nutrition. But because health and beauty companies are trusted to regulate themselves, the words “natural” and “organic” have become a free-for-all. USDA Certified Organic is the only seal that ensures an ingredient or product is truly organic. Anything else or less is marketing.

P E S T I C I D E   F R E E  Insecticides, pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers used in conventional agriculture are toxic to the planet and the human body. They are found everywhere – from our shelves to “natural” products to newborns, and ultimately end up in the foods we eat and the water we drink. According to the President’s Report, these toxins are linked to about 95% of cancers. 
N U T R I T I O N A L   C H E M I S T R Y  Technology and science have evolved so that using non-toxic, natural and organic products doesn’t mean sacrificing performance. Our products are free of sulfates, plastics, parabens, silicone, mineral oil, petrolatum, petrochemical-derivatives and synthetics. Instead, they are formulated with state-of-the-art science that makes them potent and high-performing. 
P I O N E E R I N G   P L A N T   S T E M   C E L L S  Intelligent Nutrients utilizes plant stem cells cultivated without soil in the purest lab conditions. This revolutionary process lets us release the life force of the plant in its most pure form – with some delivering as much as 1000 X the anti-oxidant activity of the entire plant. We believe petrochemical culture and agriculture may soon be replaced by nutrition culture. So we are leading the process. 
C H A L L E N G I N G   T H E   C O S M E T I C S   I N D U S T R Y  If a product contains but a drop of organically grown material, it can put “organic” in its name or on its label. How is this possible? The FDA allows cosmetics and personal care to self-regulate itself on an honor system. We believe it’s time to put health back into the health and beauty business. We want to wake up and shake up Big Beauty while we provide safe, sumptuous beauty products that actually work. What can you do? Demand healthy products. Vote with your dollars. Check your products for toxicity. And tell your friends.
