Gift Shop Magazine Interview & Feature

Good Body Products Solid Scents were featured in Gift Shop Magazine along with an interview with formulator and founder Trish Naudon Thomas.

Consumer Demand
Industry analysts predict the natural and organic personal care market will be valued at $19 billion by 2015. "It's smart business to make safe cosmetics," says Margie Kelly, media relations manager for Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a coalition working to clean up the beauty aisle through public advocacy and market campaigns designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to cancer, reproductive harm and other adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.

Trish Naudon-Thomas, co-founder and Chief Formulator of Vermont-based Good Body Products, attributes the increase in demand for green body care products to be largely the result of Internet social media spreading awareness of holistic, homeopathic and organic alternatives to unsafe products.

"More and more people are learning about the often-unsafe chemicals many of us are exposed to every day," Naudon-Thomas says. "In addition, the increase of modern maladies has left people cautious and more aware of what they put in and on their bodies. People are starting to move away from the quick fix, 'take a pill' mentality to a more natural, 'take more pure' mindset."

Good Body Products use the therapeutic qualities of herbs, essential oils and other natural ingredients to create 100 percent organic, healing body care products, adds Naudon-Thomas.

Vitamin Retailer Magazine New Product Feature for Eucalyptus & Peppermint Mist

Good Body Products featured in Vitamin Retailer Magazine
Our Eucalyptus & Peppermint Aromatic Mist was aimed at providing relief from exhaustion and mental sluggishness. Eucalyptus and Peppermint relax blood vessels, relieve stress and depression, and stimulate mental activity by increasing blood flow to the brain. In addition to increasing cognitive focus, this mist kills bacteria and germs. It also contains vitamin A and C which are excellent nourishment for the skin. This mist is a great pick-me-up for a tired mind and a real rejuvenator for the face.

Good Body Products Reviewed by La La Scoop Magazine & Blog

By Rochelle Robinson
While opening up my gift bag filled with Good Body Products sent from co-founder and Santa Monica native Trish Thomas I got so excited after the first few sprays of her Jasmine and Tangerine Aromatic Mist that I couldn't help but proceed to lather on all of the Body Butters, Salves and even the Solid Scents one after the other right out of the bag. Needless to say, it was a pretty gluttonous moment that actually left me a bit buzzed with the cacophony of loveliness penetrating deep into and past the layers of my epidermis.

Each Good Body product is made by hand in small batches in Vermont, where the Thomas family owners now reside. And from peppermint to Shea butter to comfrey, each and every nourishing, invigorating ingredient in their sensational line is 100% organic. The scents are pure and subtle, the textures - oh so luxurious. Every bottle beholds a spa experience for your senses, skin and even muscles and joints. After two days of using each of the various products religiously - morning, noon and night, my skin is softer, smoother and more hydrated than it has been in a long, long time.

Both the Arnica and St. John's Wort Muscle and Joint Relief Sugar Scrub and the Calendula and Jasmine Face and Body Salt Scrub are light to the touch, almost dry as you dip your hand into the bottle. But, the oil infused grains of salt and sugar exfoliate and penetrate into the skin deeply, making it smooth, soft and hydrated. The Whipped Body Butters are just that, whipped and luscious. They extend beautifully, making them perfect for massage. In fact, their new Comfrey, Tea Tree and Rosemary Whipped Body Butter has recently been featured in Massage Magazine's New Product section. I'm personally partial to the Calendula, Lemon Balm, and Jasmine Whipped Body Butter. Made of calendula- and lemon balm-infused olive oils, Shea butter, cocoa butter and jasmine and tangerine essential oils, it's everything I can do not to eat it. It's super yummy! GoodBody healing salves are wonderfully soothing. The Arnica and Comfrey Salve works to ease joint, ligament, muscle, bruising pains, perfect as well for a massage to ease a body from accruing tensions from working out. The Wild Yam Root and Geranium Salve gives a warming relief to menstrual pains.

I love, love, love their Aromatic Mists. All three are refreshing and effective. Suffering from a head-ache the other night I decided to give the Rosemary and Lavender Aromatic Mist a shot because it's meant to help relieve headaches and restore calm to the body. I sprayed it all around myself with special attention to my throbbing forehead. And, the tension began to subside. I'd take an aromatic spray over a stomach-paining pill any day! Wouldn't you?

My absolute favorite Good Body Products (photo credit: Rochelle Robinson) 
I'm totally head over heals in love with Good Body Products. You can have a package of sensational loveliness sent to you too, so you can begin to experience the nourishing, healing and invigorating effects of their pure good, good, goodness.

5 Star Reviews from The Complete Herbal Guide

5 STAR REVIEWS ARE IN! The Complete Herbal Guide has awarded 5 out of 5 stars to Good Body Products Arnica and St. John's Wort Sugar Body Scrub (For Muscle and Joint Relief) and Wild Yam Root & Geranium Menstrual Relief Salve

Arnica and St. John's Wort Sugar Body Scrub Product Review (For Muscle & Joint Relief)

What the reviewers thought:

"I myself do not usually suffer from much pain, but I know several people that suffer from mild to chronic pain. In addition, I have epilepsy and people with epilepsy should not use any herbal products containing St. John's Wort because this herbal could provoke seizures when you have epilepsy.

So, with that said, when I received the Arnica and St. John's Wort Sugar Body Scrub (For Muscle and Joint Relief), I asked one of my friends who suffers from muscle spasms and terrible PMS all the time to try the product and tell me what she thought of it. She used it several times while she was in the shower and bath. During this time, she was experiencing pains in her legs and cramps caused by her menstruation and she when she used the scrub she noticed a huge difference.The pain in her legs decreased drastically, her cramps went away and she said she felt much calmer and focused. She was not biting everyone's head off in the house. She was able to function and do things around the house instead of lying on the couch because of the pain she experiences.

The Arnica and St. John's Wort Sugar Body Scrub (For Muscle and Joint Relief) came quickly, was packaged well, and when she tried it, she told me what a difference from any other products and medicines she ever tried before. She loved that that there were no side effects and loved how calm and relaxed she felt afterwards. She told me he was going to continue using this natural pain relief scrub. She was very impressed and gave it FIVE STARS."

Yam Root & Geranium Menstrual Relief Salve Product Review

What the reviewers thought:

"My daughter started menstruation last year. Each month she experiences terrible menstrual cramps. I had tried a number of products over-the-counter and prescription too. None of them worked well. The over-the-counter ones, which are very popular, only helped a little or none at all. Then I called my doctor and he prescribed a medication for her that worked most of the time, but not all the time. Yesterday she was complaining on cramps, so I gave her GOOD BODY PRODUCTS' Yam Root & Geranium Menstrual Relief Salve. She tried it and within minutes, her cramps stopped. She came in my room and told me, "I won't need to take that pill because the cream you gave me stopped the cramps." I was very impressed because she experiences very painful cramps not mild ones. I was very impressed with GOOD BODY PRODUCTS Yam Root & Geranium Menstrual Relief Salve and I will continue to give it to my daughter. She loved it and I was so happy to see her running around the house instead of buried underneath her covers with a frown on her face."

The GOOD BODY PRODUCTS Yam Root & Geranium Menstrual Relief Salve came quickly, packaged well and when she tried it, she told me what a difference from any other products and medicines she ever tried before. She loved that that there were no side effects and loved how calm and relaxed she felt. She told me she wanted to continue using this natural pain relief cream instead of the medicine she was using. She was very impressed and so was I we both give it FIVE STARS."

Massage Magazine: Good Body Product launches February, 2014—Brookline, VT

Brookline, VT—Good Body Products has introduced its first line of small-batch, handmade, 100-percent organic body care products. The new line consists of 17 products in five categories: body and face scrubs, whipped body butters, therapeutic salves, solid scents and aromatic mists.
The product formulations were created to serve as natural remedies for body aches and skin issues common to physically strenuous lifestyles and age-related impairment. Good Body Products alleviate conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, premenstrual syndrome, menopause, headaches, severely dry or chapped skin, cuts and scrapes, eczema, psoriasis, acne and problem skin.
Good Body Products is founded and run by partners Trish and Chris Thomas. They began their quest for healthier living during their 16 years as residents of New York, New York, crafting a green smoothie recipe book and avidly investigating alternative medicines. The couple’s soon-to-be-born daughter, Myla Sol, inspired a move to the hills of Vermont, where they immediately began growing vegetables, herbs and flowers and further exploring the power of natural medicines. After years of research, formulating and testing, Good Body Products are finally available via the Good Body Products website, www.goodbodyproducts.com, and at co-ops and health and beauty stores.
“We are thrilled to have crafted 100-percent organic products that provide effective remedies for the skin along with strong natural healing elements beneficial to the entire body. I’ve personally struggled with sensitive skin my whole life. Applying the vast majority of skin care products would most often result in a hive breakout. I really wanted a product that I knew was 100-percent natural and toxin-free, with no strange or chemical ingredients. In the end, the best solution was to create what I wanted for myself. For the past years I’ve been formulating products for myself, for my family, and for others who suffered from similar sensitivities. I created products we could all count on to provide relief, and the overwhelmingly positive feedback has made all the hard work worthwhile,” says Trish Thomas, the wisdom behind all Good Body Product formulas.
Good Body Products can be found online, in store at the Brattleboro Food Co-op, Fly Hair in New Haven, Connecticut, Pilates Life Studios in Portland, Washington, and soon at additional retailers throughout the U.S. Good Body Products sources 100-percent organic, local first (Zack Woods Herb Farm and others), U.S.-made (whenever possible), and Fair Trade Certified (whenever possible) ingredients. Good Body Products are animal cruelty-free (in certification process with LeapingBunny.org), are silver members of The Green Business Network and are committed to operating a responsible, ethical business.
