Manitoulin Botanicals ~ Natural Goodness for your Body #Manitoulin #ManitoulinSpotlight



When people think of Manitoulin Island, they think of the outdoors, untouched land, and nature at its best.  Many associate Manitoulin with fresh and natural food too.  Our island Farmers' Markets are popular with locals and visitors alike

I recently met up with Manitoulin Botanicals to chat about the products they offer. Manitoulin Botanicals is a Canadian cosmetics business that was founded and is based in Meldrum Bay, Ontario, Canada.

I  had an interesting chat learning about the products and the story behind them. I also learned more about the ingredients used and the reasoning behind it.
"Your skin is the largest organ in your body. Anything that you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream and into your organs and tissues. At Manitoulin Botanicals we choose to put only healthy natural products in our bodies.
We make beauty products that actually are natural; 100% and completely natural. Not 99% or 99.9% natural. They contain no petrochemicals, no synthetics or heavy metals, no alcohol and they are cruelty free and 100% Vegan. We use essential oils containing natural anti-oxidants that are known to keep skin healthy and looking young & naturally sourced vitamin E.
We have our ingredients list, on our site, in English, for each item, so that you can see for yourself what our products contain. If the list of the ingredients is not in English then you might not really know what you are buying.
Some companies claim that their products are 90 or 99 percent natural, but even a small percentage of impurities can be a problem. 1 part per billion of some substances is enough to cause birth defects, cancer, liver problems, skin irritations and sensitivities, allergies, to change hormone functions effecting reproductive success." - Manitoulin Botanicals
I have tried the Lavender Liquid Soap and the Orange Lip Balm.  Lavender just happens to be one of my favourite scents.  I love fresh lavender and lavender dried and added to my tea. 
What surprised me was the consistency of the liquid soap. It wasn't as "thick" as store-bought soaps.  This was much runnier than anything I had tried. The ingredients are natural and safe on the skin and for your body. There are no harmful ingredients used. It took some getting used to to adjust to the consistency. My 4 year old always uses too much soap from the dispenser, but after some practice, we figured out that we only need just a little bit of product to do the job. A little goes a long way.
I'm very pleased with the liquid hand soap as well as the Orange Lip Balm. My lips feel so soft and smooth. Plus, I love anything and everything orange-flavoured!



Here are some other Manitoulin Botanicals products:


 Get some bath salts for yourself or give some as a gift.
 The lip balms are also great gift items! I guarantee you'll want to get some for yourself too!

I love Manitoulin Botanical products. Orange cream hand lotion smells like orange creamsicles.
