No Tox Life was born from the desire to provide natural, toxin-free vegan body care to help you live a cleaner, greener lifestyle.
We are a local, family-run business and each product is handmade using the highest-quality ingredients we can find.
If you look at big brands in the “natural” body care products industry, you will find harsh detergents, petroleum-derived ingredients, toxic preservatives, and a host of other ingredients with dangerous side effects. We don’t believe in using ingredients you can’t pronounce. Our products are made with gentle oils such as olive, coconut, and rice bran oil. We use mango butter, shea butter, essential oils, natural clays and minerals – all ingredients your skin will love.
Who we are:
All the soaps and cremes and hair oils are handmade by Sandee Ferman, founder of No Tox Life.
You can meet her at one of our local markets (check the market schedule for dates and locations). She’ll be able to talk about the entire production process and the reasoning behind the ingredients chosen for each item.
Sandee got interested in living a non-toxic lifestyle many decades ago. As a little girl, she experienced a bad reaction to the ingredients in a perfume that left red welts on her skin. As a teenager, she participated in the first annual Earth Day and has been fired up about a more natural lifestyle ever since.
Always interested in science and math, she recently rehabilitated a skill in the arts. She is an accomplished watercolor painter. In 2013, she discovered the art and science of soap making and — voila! The best of both worlds.
In addition to being a certified woman-owned small business – No Tox Life is also a family business.
Sandee’s daughter Callie Ferman is the creative mind behind No Tox Life’s marketing, design and product photography.
Callie has a unique background including working in a print shop, doing sales, administration, design, marketing, photography, and more recently studying web development. Her combination of skills are all put to use at different points in the business.
