ROSS – Organic For Less?

February 21, 2010

I’ve been on a quest to find healthier alternatives to all of the body care products that I got rid of, when I realized they were full of toxins (see ‘Body Products – Strike 1’ & ‘Body Products – Strike 2’). I assume (even though I’ve learned what happens when I ASSume) that “natural” or “organic” products will be more expensive than standard brands, so have been wondering how I am going to replace everything I got rid of. Well yesterday I was at ROSS, and happened to stroll through their body care section, and totally lucked out! To my surprise, they actually had a pretty large selection of organic products – once I took the time to dig through it all. (Come on, it’s ROSS people – it’s not like it was clearly marked in an organized section!)

I found multiple lotions, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and a few skin care items. None of them contain propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, or synthetic dyes. And as if that weren’t enough, it was all marked down for clearance. Talk about my lucky day! (I actually do believe that when you are living in harmony with your inner self, that things like this happen more frequently for you – but that’s a whole other blog post! haha) I even hit up another ROSS in the area, (I was curious if it was a bit of a fluke for the first ROSS to have such a good body care section) and scored some more great product there as well. Who knew? So if you’re looking to try some more organic products, but also fear you cannot afford it, check out ROSS.

Now I can’t wait to start using this stuff and see how it compares to standard products. Stay tuned!

    How can I find this coconut vanilla body lotion? I got a tube at Ross about a year ago and can’t find it anywhere, even online. Noah’s Naturals URL is invalid…

      I’m not sure what’s going on with Noah’s Naturals. I also noticed that their website does not seem to be active anymore. I haven’t been able to find any info on them going under though. I also got my Organics by Noah’s Naturals Coconut Vanilla Lotion at ROSS – quite some time back. I found it twice, and it was in a different bottle each time. I wondered if they were revamping their look? I have been able to find it on eBay in the past, but actually see some on Amazon right now, in a different bottle than the other two I had. (http://www.amazon.com/Noahs-Naturals-LLC-Coconut-Vanilla/dp/B001KYQKRM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=beauty&qid=1309299123&sr=8-1). Unfortunately, I think this product line is probably a “get it while you can”, so if you really like this lotion, you may want to snatch these off Amazon. Hope that helps!
