Andalou Naturals is a brand that I had seen before in local stores that carry organic and natural beauty products. However, I had not yet had a chance to try it. I was fortunate to have the company contact me to ask if I would like to review one of their products. (And for the record, agreeing to have the product sent to me for review does not mean that I’m in any way committed to then “liking” the product, or even doing a written review!)
I looked into Andalou Naturals, and all of their products; skin, hair and body care are all made by blending advanced Fruit Stem Cell Science with natural and fair-trade ingredients. A minimum of 70% certified organic content is used, so that visible and healthy results are seen!

Andalou Naturals has based their company on “an ethos of sustainability and social responsibility” by incorporating a strong philanthropic element. Readers, please take note of this: for every Website sale and newsletter subscription, (see the website for sign-up,) the company donates $1.00 to one of their four charitable organizations.
In addition, 100% of Andalou’s special-edition, A Force of Nature Hand Cream’s net sales–both in store–and online–goes to charity. I did not receive this Hand Cream, but I wanted to mention it for your consideration since the net sales all go to charity!
However, I really liked the Andalou Naturals sample that I was sent, and would highly recommend: the Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel.
Andalou Naturals Ingredients
This particular shower gel contains 72% certified organic ingredients. It contains a mix of mandarin vanilla, organic aloe vera, and very gentle botanicals that did leave my skin very soft, and smelling lovely! I also liked that after I applied to wet skin in the shower, I had a very nice, rich lather.
Final Thoughts About Andalou Naturals
I love that Andalou Naturals Shower Gel is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny and also Vegan. In addition, as with all their products, the shower gel has been tested by the Food Allergy Research & Resource Program (FARRP) on behalf of Celiac Spruce Association (CSA) and are verified to be gluten-free.
Disclosure: I received one (11 fl oz bottle) of Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel. All the links in this post are for your convenience only.
