A few letters from Grateful Bodies...

from Barb in Aromas, CA
"I love your products and your ethics. I am a 67 year old long time vegan, who is really tired of hearing that I need surgery, chemicals or any extreme measure to stay "young"! I don't want to be who I was, I want to be the best that I am now....and your wonderful products help me do just that. My daily rituals are enhanced by the feel and scent from every bottle. I am often curious about new lines that I see advertised, but they never measure up to Grateful Body."

from Linda in Los Gatos, CA
"I received the most wonderful gift from a dear friend. She purchased three products from your skincare line and invited me to change my current skincare line. I am 55 years young and have spent years in the sun playing tennis, volleyball and golf.  My skin has always been dry, my pores enlarged and skin cancer is always a concern for me. After only 30 days of using your products I have experienced a remarkable transformation on my face, neck and chest areas. Your products are amazing and miraculous. Thank you for your research and dedication in creating a beauty product line that truly works."

from Clarissa in Maplewood, NJ
"Just wanted to share how much I’m enjoying the products. I knew after one use that these are exceptional! They are very clean feeling (and clean smelling!) and my skin is very happy with each product I’ve tried. I’m slightly obsessed with safe skincare that actually performs and have tried many lines that are one or the other but it’s not often I come across a line that is both."

from Laurie in Boulder, CO
"I have purchased many of Grateful Body’s products for at least one year. The products are superb and I tried many organic skin care lines. Grateful Body is by far the superior organic skin care line of all other lines I have tried! Customer service is excellent and I highly recommend this product line hands down! Thank you Grateful Body!"

from Carole in Sonoma, CA
"I just wanted to say that my friend here at the Sonoma Holistic Center let me try a bit of your face lotion and OH MY GOODNESS!  What a lovely, wonderful, healing feeling on my face! And I have ‘mature’ skin, if you know what I mean. I just love that you are so concerned with health and chemical free ingredients!  I’m always searching for the most perfect products! I will tell my clients here at the center!"

from Susan in Middlebury, VT
"I’m friends with Larry Pleasant, owner of Vermont Soap Company, who has been a tireless crusader for natural beauty products for at least 20 years now. We saw each other recently and he pointedly complimented my skin – at 54 years old, with years spent as a lifeguard on Lake Michigan in my teens and early 20s and having struggled with acne from 12 years till about 32, that was quite a compliment. When I told him that my skincare regime was Grateful Body, he was most enthusiastic and only had glowing words for your company and your founder."

 from Alexis in Santa Fe, NM
"I don’t have bad skin, per se, but I do get clogged pores and blackheads. For as long as I can remember I have tried all kinds of over-the-counter products, in all price ranges. Even the best products would only work temporarily. In another “take a chance” shopping trip, I spoke with a service member at my local co-op. Her skin glowed and showed a radiant health that I wanted. I asked her what she used and she directed me to Grateful Body. With just the first use I saw noticeable differences in my skin. I’m now hooked!"

from Kelley in Phoenix, AZ
"Midnight Oil is about to be the number one topical recommended by doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix! I emailed you a year ago and stated how amazing your oil was for my baby’s head after he had a cancerous brain tumor removed. After a year of chemo, he is currently going through radiation treatment at the Mayo Clinic and they couldn’t understand why he doesn’t have any blisters on the back of his head from radiation. I told them I use Midnight Oil on his head every day. His main doctor asked for your website and told me they were going to start telling patients about it who get terrible blisters and burning from the radiation. Thank you for making an amazing product!"

from Linda in Billings, MT
"People often ask what I use on my skin, and I always tell them about your products. The results speak for themselves and others want the same results.  I’m 62 now, people don’t believe I’m that old.  They say I look 20 years younger than my age.  It’s a result of using your product of pure botanicals, with no toxic ingredients that cause health problems and skin problems, that provide nutrition for my skin and eating correctly and getting exercise that keeps everything toned.  If it truly is a good product it will stand the test of time, by continuing to be a benefit to the user. Thank you all at Grateful Body, especially Shannon (I believe he’s the creator and skilled herbologist responsible for the product’s ingredients).  I’m enjoying his newsletters, which help me “feel” his passion for his products and the 'whole creation of them'."

from Trinity in Sebastopol, CA
"I will feature your products at my skin care classes at the California School of Herbal Studies as the right path to follow for intelligent skin food.  Most of my students want to learn to make their own skin care and I have seen that at the end of the day they also really wish to know what to buy and recommend to others.  You have really done an outstanding job with your products!  So happy your great work is in the world."

 from Christine in Santa Rosa, CA
"Hi there.  I ordered some products and have been using them for several days now, and wanted to let you know about the three things I really appreciate about your products: First - my skin feels and looks wonderful!  Usually I slather lotion on my face several times a day, but the dry skin moisturizer and midnight oil seem to last a long, lovely time (and the scent of the oil is mesmerizing...)  Second - your products are all natural, not mostly natural with some extra artificial stuff thrown in at the bottom of the ingredient list.  And, I appreciate that there is thought and concern given to how these botanicals are sourced.  Who wants a great skin cream if someone is decimating the rain forest for exotic plants? And finally - I love your founder’s take on life, and what it means to be a human living on, and taking nourishment from, our beautiful earth."

from Lucretia in Berkeley, CA
"I had terrible acne as a teenager, and now I have rosacea as an adult. I’ve tried so many things: prescription drugs, over-the-counter creams, acupuncture, herbal supplements, facials, dietary changes (this was the most effective treatment, but the rosacea still didn’t completely calm down). My rosacea appears as angry, red bumps which can be quite painful. When I discovered Grateful Body products, I was delighted with how my skin responded to the products. I use Gentle line, along with Clear Toner. My blotchy, bumpy red cheeks have smoothed out beautifully; but, what really makes a difference for me is being free from the pain. Thank you, Grateful Body, for all the work, research and love you put into your products!"

From Alison in Taos, NM
"I’m loving the products! I live in Taos, NM, higher elevation and dryer climate so appreciate the extra support of your Protective Serum. I’ve been using Grateful Body a little over a year now and can really see and feel the difference. I’ve worked with a lot of different lines especially as a massage therapist in spas and this is the BEST line I’ve found.....and so reasonably priced!"

from Nicole in Truckee, CA
“Thank you! Grateful Body continues to top my list with products I love from a company I trust wholeheartedly!”

from Marcie in India
“I don’t know how you do it but your formulas are perfect. I thought it perhaps impossible to keep my skin feeling soft, healthy and clean here in India. With the pollution and the harshness of the seasons life can be brutal here and my skin suffers. But you’ve saved the day, my skin literally perked up as soon as I started using GratefulBody again. There’s only 1 thing I still want from the land of my birth and that’s my GratefulBody skin care! Gratitude to you for your amazing work and thanks for keeping it pure.“

from Kagari in West Vancouver, B.C. Canada
“Thank you. Your products never disappointed me and, thanks to you, my skin is in very good condition always!“

from Jennifer in Oriental, NC
“I've been using your products since July and this is the first winter I can remember that I didn't have red, flaky skin. Thank you SO much!“

from Debbie in Grants Pass, OR
“Just wanted to let you know I received my package of wonderful Grateful Body products, I want to say I have loved your products since the first time I used them“

from Michellene in Bothell, WA
“The integrity of your team and to the quality of GB products is inspiring. I appreciate all you do. I am definitely a grateful body and loyal supporter of your mission and good works.“

From Susan in Santa Cruz, CA
“I love beginning my day with the Essential Cleanser - I have been using it daily now for almost 3 months. It is not sticky, gummy, filmy, soapy, or harsh - it feels light and refreshing both to the touch, on my face, and then in the after effect when the face is rinsed. I feel awake and the skin has a clean glow and looks healthy and alive. The pores feel and look more toned and tighter. Also, I had been getting little hard oil nodules near the eyes which are not increasing anymore, and in fact seem to be decreasing. Taking off the sweat and elimination from the pores with such a refined and conscious product helps me to feel A NEW BEGINNING in my life - every day!“

from Fran in Lakeland, FL
“I love your newsletters! I find myself relating to your stories and being inspired.“

from Rosemarie
“Just had to let you know that your letters are so beautifully written and make me look at your products on a deeper level. Your enthusiasm and commitment are truly wondrous. Thank you for caring so much and providing such a wonderful product. I am proud to provide Grateful Body skincare to my customers.“

from Erin L. in Denver, CO
“Hi, I just wanted to tell you guys that I love your products! I have very sensitive skin, and since I’ve started using your line I literally get a compliment on how good my skin looks a few times a week. Not to mention how wonderful the products feel on my face. I’m so happy I found your line! Thanks.“
 
from Kayoung in Union City, NJ
“I wanted to comment on your products. I've had an awful debilitating skin condition on my face since I was 14 that puzzled dermatologists - it's difficult to even describe it.  I've tried everything known to mankind; if they say it's good for skin, I've done it. I've been using organic natural products for a few years now. Still nothing healed my skin but at least it didn't make it worse. Anyway, I ordered your products and immediately felt a difference. I don't remember the last time I felt comfortable in my own skin, and I just wanted to tell you guys that I am so ecstatic about the quality and effectiveness of your products! Thank you so much for that and the awesome customer service!“

from Andi in Huntersville, NC
“I discovered your products through a recommendation from a friend. I started with one product but soon bought a full daily regimen, including Seven Powers. After just a month, I'm amazed at the results. My dry patches are completely gone, I no longer have an oily t-zone. Also, your products smell AMAZING, especially the cleansers!“

from Marie in Amesbury, MA
“Grateful Body Skin Care products are the best I have ever used or seen and I have worked in a natural food store for the past 11 years. Please keep doing what you do best! Gratefully“

from Anne in St. Petersburg, FL
“I love your moisturizer for dry skin.  It's the only one I've ever used that doesn't leave my face as dry as if I hadn't even used any!“

from Anita in Grants Pass, OR
“Wow what an incredible company you have made, I only use your products on my face!!!!“

from Lucia M. in Tucson, AZ
“thank you!  i LOVE your products and spread the word as much as i can.  i am grateful that you continue to do what you do, which is so rare!  Keep on doing what you are doing, please!  blessings, Lucia“

from Lee in Santa Barbara
“Your products have high frequency bioresonance and lots of love, and that's why I choose them.  Keep up your beautiful work.  Peace from Santa Barbara“

from Jeannette
“Thank you so much for this information. I think this company and its ethics are brilliant! I also love the products i have tried so far. Please continue the good work and i thank you for existing it has been a challenge to find products that benefit my MCS skin.“

from Celia
“My sister and I share the same feelings about the earth and products for our bodies so I love to share whole and wholesome products such as yours with her. I have also used your rich moisturizer and love it! I use the moisture monsoon here at home.  I have found that I only need a small amount for my face and it has a truly calming effect.  I appreciate all of the research and inner kindness that is put into each of your products. I was lucky to have survived cancer and a near fatal accident in the past 12 years. Having been given the gift of continued life on this earth, I too am grateful for my living, working body and feel humbled and honored to treat it with loving care. Your products help me on this quest and I am greatly appreciative of all that you do!“

from Kate in Pocasset, MA
“Just a note to say I enjoyed hearing more of the background of your commitment to the plant/people connection. I've always thought your website is a wonderful expression of photos, heartfelt words, and intelligent communication that clearly sets Grateful Body apart from other companies. Now I know where the name Grateful Body comes from.“

from Alva in Victoria, BC
“I have been enjoying my essential cleanser. It is doing great things for my skin and I have been trying to find the words to describe it. It's my favourite cleanser ever. It's very balancing. My skin tends to be a little dry and slightly patchy and now, after using the cleanser, it is uniformly moist and smooth and it also feels more elastic. My complexion is brighter and smoother and younger looking. Also, I'm picky about scents but I really like this one - it's very refreshing.“

from Bonita
“Your company is in the top tier of natural body care products around! I have a keen eye and I'm very fond of your ingredient list; you are constantly improving. Please keep up the great work!“

from Jennifer in Pasadena, CA
“Hi, I use Grateful Body skin care products and love them! My mom has always been trying different skin care products since I was a teen, so over the past 20 years we have tried just about everything. It has been our mission to find the fountain of youth in a bottle.  It is not often we use the same product for multiple months because while initially most products seem wondrous their magic seems to fade within a couple weeks. I have concluded it’s the change in routine that temporarily perks the skin up with little to do with the actual product. My mom discovered Grateful Body after she was diagnosed with cancer and was searching for skin care products free of toxins.  My mom has never looked better and we have both seen continued results over the last 6 months using Grateful Body. In this day and time, I can very much appreciate a company that does not compromise quality to make an extra buck. Grateful Body is the best product (in so many ways) that we have tried over the last 20 years and we feel finding it is mission complete! Thank you.“

from Leslie in Sacramento, CA
“Thank you for continuing to improve your products. My 56 year old face could not be happier!“

from Hsin-Yi in Norwalk, CA
“I recently purchased 3 of your products and after trying them for a few weeks I just have to write to you and let you know that love them all! Your cleanser is very gentle yet cleanses really well, not stripping my face dry or anything. I feel my face after using it is very well moisturized. I really love the textures of the serums and how quickly they got absorbed into my face. I feel I look glowy and brightened every time I use the serums. They smell heavenly too!“

from Julia in Berkeley, CA
“Hi there, I bought the Gentle Cleanser - the formula is so great. Really shocking quality - you can feel the difference on your skin.“

from Jill P
“Hello,  I just had to tell you this!  I went to my dermatologist yesterday for a follow-up on my rosacea.  The doctor had given me a cream which I did not want to use, but I tried it and it made my rosacea worse.  I ordered your gentle cleanser and moisturizer and yesterday when the doctor saw me he said I had had stage 3 rosacea (there are 5 stages) and that I was now at stage 1!  He thought it was because of the cream he had given me and I told him what had happened and that I was using your products and of course he said that was not possible.  I don't care what he believes...I believe!  My face has not been this well in many years and believe me I have tried a lot of things.  So I just want to thank you for helping me have beautiful skin I can be proud of again!!!   You guys are the greatest!! Since I wrote you last, I have only used your gentle products and my redness is ALL gone and very few bumps left!  I cannot believe it and I am so very happy, as up until now nothing has ever worked.  So thank you, thank you!“

from David in Oakland, CA
“Every winter, probably due to the dry, indoor heat, the skin on the inside part of my eyebrows becomes red, and starts flaking.  This year, amazingly, it didn't happen.  I definitely used the indoor heat, maybe even more than usual (we had some chilly, damp days), and my supplements remain unchanged.  What I attribute it to is the Grateful Body skin products. I had started using them last spring, but hadn't yet gone through a winter with them.  What was especially surprising was how soothing the products felt when I put it on this area.  With other products, I use to keep applying moisturizer, hoping it would calm the skin down, but it would still be red and flakey.  With Grateful Body, I just applied the usual amount and the skin was fine.  Thank you - I'm very grateful.  Something I thought would be a lifetime issue, is not there anymore.“

from Suzette in Ventura, CA
“Dear Grateful Body, I love your products. Last winter I developed a skin irritation, I think I developed some type of allergy. This winter I tried your Gentle Moisturizer. Oh Happy Day! It immediately cooled the burning, stopped the itching!!!! and wonder of wonders over the course of about three weeks the irritation went away.  I am eternally grateful as this was very painful. I am sharing this because if it helped me there must be millions of other women out there with similar deep under the skin itching eczema-like irritations who could benefit.  Love ya!“

from Katie in Oakland, CA
“Hi, Grateful Body! Just want to thank you, because my skin LOVES your products. I've been using them for several months now, and I keep being surprised at how soft and smooth my skin feels this week so I guess it really is important (as you always say) to feed my skin right! AND, OMG (honestly no exaggeration here) the first time I used it, the beautiful scent in my moisturizer made tears well up (the joyful kind of tears) - it smells that amazing to me!“

from Sharon
“I cannot even begin to tell you how much I've enjoyed using ALL of these amazing products. They are the BEST! Thank you again for your true generosity of spirit and products. Eternally GRATEFUL“

from Alison in Taos, NM
“I'm loving the products especially the Seven Powers serum.  I live in Taos, NM, higher elevation and dryer climate so appreciate the extra support. I've been using Grateful Body a little over a year now and can really see and feel the difference. I've worked with a lot of different lines especially as a massage therapist in spas and this is the BEST line I've found.....and so reasonably priced!“

from Tsien in Rochester, NY
“Dear Grateful Body, Your company has shown to be very knowledgeable about cause and effect.  You have credibility with me, cause Gratefulbody products have given me good results.  I 'm 60 years old, but don't look it. Thank you for providing a good product for my skin.  I searched all over the country and internationally for a product I would want to use on my skin.  I have researched ingredients to the point that I recognize a good ingredient from a bad ingredient.  Thanks once again.“

from Pam in Carpenteria, CA
“I’ve been using your Seven Powers for about 3 months now and I knew I was looking and feeling better, but yesterday my 4 yr old granddaughter said, "Nana, your face is so soft." Then she stroked my arm and my back and came back to my face and said it was the softest of all. That's what you call a totally unsolicited testimonial LOL“

from Michelle in San Francisco, CA
"Wow. I don’t know what to say. Thank-you seems so small! My long and unsuccessful affair  with chemical products (recommended by dermatologists) and my long search for vital and pure skincare is finally over (about 12 different brands, and 10 years searching). My skin is so happy, I am happy, I radiate beauty so much clearer now! Thank-you for being environmentally conscientious! Thank-you for your beautiful mission! Thank-you for being affordable! Thank-you for creating such vital and healing products! Thank-you for being so stylish throughout the entire process! Thank-you for helping to change social perceptions on beauty!"
