Welcome to the Yellow Bird! We are a family owned and run all natural skin care company that uses pure and simple ingredients, free of synthetic chemicals, to nourish skin and promote health. Our products are perfect for the entire family, especially for those with allergies and chemical sensitivities. We strive to provide products that are full of simple yet powerful ingredients (you can read everything on the label!).
The concept of holistic living is something that I (Nicole) had the blessing of growing up with. My mom was very conscious of what ingredients were in the food we ate (she's an incredible gardener to boot!) and in the products we used around the house and on our bodies. The fewer ingredients something has, the better. Personally, I didn’t really take as much of an interest in “natural” or “chemical free” products until I had my girls.
As I have grown, I have seen that ingredients in our products matter-- that our skin matters. I have also seen that natural ingredients (things like coconut oil, various essential oils, etc.) really work-- this is not a drill! This is why I started The Yellow Bird. Not only did I want to have safe and affordable products for my family, but I also wanted to give others access to them so that you can enjoy them for you and your family.
Our mission is to always make products with minimal, simple yet powerful ingredients that are also affordable. You can even find our products on Amazon!
What IS in our products?
Our products are made with ingredients as close to nature as possible! We go for GMO free and all natural and organic ingredients. With so many people (especially in our family!) having sensitivities to various ingredients, we have seen first hand how hard it is to find skin care products that are chemical free (and fragrance free!), GMO free, paraben free, and soy free. We love using high-grade Essential Oils for their nourishing benefits but also for their pleasant aromas. You can browse a lot of the ingredients we use and their benefits in our Ingredient Glossary.
So, what is chemical free?
Chemical Free means that our products have no synthetic chemicals.I especially want to avoid any ingredients that are petroleum-derived or parabens. If you read labels, you will find fragrances in everything from shampoo to deodorant to lotions, however, Federal law doesn't require companies to list the chemicals in their fragrance mixture which means these don't show up on the product label. Fragrances can contain hormone disruptors and are among the top 5 allergens in the world. Our advice? Buy fragrance free wherever possible.
Why does it matter?
Our skin is our biggest organ and we absorb 60% of what is put on our skin-- and children absorb even more than that. With synthetic ingredients, we have no idea what effects the chemicals have on different aspects of our body. Instead of putting the unknown (and sometimes dangerous!) on our skin, we strive to provide products that nourish and strengthen the skin. Instead of needing skin care products to “fix” issues, start off with products that fortify your skin. We want to be proactive in our skin care, not reactive!
You will find that we spend a lot of time talking about ingredients here so you can be educated on what's good for your skin and why we choose specific ingredients in products. It's a great time! Thanks for spending some time with us and from the entire Yellow Bird Crew, thanks for supporting us!
