Nourish + Heal The Body of a Child In Need
Not only is our purpose to formulate and create personal care and beauty products that nourish and heal our customers' bodies as well as to bridge the gap between the health/wellness industry and the beauty industry, our mission is to nourish and heal the bodies of the children in need.
For every direct order (online or at pop up markets), we give a non-toxic product to a child in need here in the USA. We have identified and partnered with several local and national organizations to serve the children in need and lift up the next generations.
Nearly 1 in 5 children in the USA live in poverty, which can impede on children's ability to learn and contribute to social, emotional, and behavioral problems. More importantly, poverty can also contribute to poor physical and mental health.
By investing in these children in need, we can make a difference. With the help of several organizations, these children are provided with resources and tools that satisfy even their basic needs, raising their quality of life, and making an impact on their childhood and development.
We hope to provide children with organic, toxic-free personal care products that are much needed in their daily life routines - nourishing and healing their bodies from outside in.
Often times, we do not know the circumstances. These children may be bounced from one home to another. They may even be homeless. They may have experienced loss of a loved one. They may be living in an abusive home. They may be sick.
What ever those circumstances are, we would like our products to be a constant in their lives - constantly providing the healing nourishments to their skin and bodies. Our products are constantly with them as we are constantly cheering them on from afar. We want to give them hope and allow them to feel loved every time they see and use our products.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for supporting this mission.
We hope that the next time you use our products, it'll bring a smile on your face - knowing that somewhere else, a child is provided for and healing and nourishing his/her body just the same.
Thanks for your contributions and support!

Every Child Deserves a Village of Support
In the Charlotte, North Carolina region there are currently close to 600 kids in the foster care system. They often come into care with little notice and very few belongings. It's the foster family's role to supply these children with basic needs, help them to feel safe and welcomed, and keep up with all of the necessary appointments and paperwork that is required within those first days after a child's placement. Staying emotionally present while sustaining heartbreaking stories and pouring out love for a new life entering the home takes a lots of energy.
They shouldn't have to do this alone.
As a community, we can help these children, foster families, kinship families, and/or biological families by creating a village of support during their time of crisis. Everyone can do something, however big or small... They're all our children and every one of us is needed.
The Relatives keeps kids safe, families together, and prepares youth and young adults to be healthy, productive, engaged members of the community.
The Relatives is a system of resources that helps children and youth find shelter and support. Our Youth Crisis Center, On Ramp Resource Center, and Housing programs keep kids safe and families together. The Relatives serves as the Safe Place agency for Mecklenburg County and the surrounding area, partnering with local businesses to ensure young people in need have access to immediate help and supportive resources.
The goal of each program The Relatives offers is to keep kids safe and families together. We believe every child deserves a safe place to sleep and a fighting chance to make it.
