I was recently introduced to a fantastic new Canadian company: Shian Naturals Health and Beauty Products, based in Burlington, ON. They make premium quality, all-natural, unscented, skin hair and body products sold exclusively in Canada.
They sent me a trial pack to sample, and I was very impressed. A few highlights:
Just...Massage and Body Oil: How very clever of a company to include an item which will put the reviewer in a relaxed, positive frame of mind...how can you find fault with a product then? A great foot rub was enough to prove to me that the oil works just perfectly! (Note to companies: no matter what you sell - books, clothes, whatever - throwing in some massage oil when sending your product out can't help but improve the review!)
Shian also makes (and their trial pack contains) Lip Balm, Body Butter and Glycerin Bar Soap, which I haven't gotten around to using yet.
Something else that really impresses me about Shian is their prices. Usually you have to pay substantially more for the clear conscience of "going green", but their products are quite reasonable. Full-sized shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturizing lotion or massage and bath oil retail for only $13 each...much less than other "natural" products.
