Truly Natural Products
Alywillow is Respect
Since you are going to wash and moisturize with something. Why not use something that does good things for your body?
Besides, if you don't respect yourself enough to do good things for yourself, no one else will respect you either. The problem is you are surrounded by fake products and fake advertisements. How do you tell the goodness from the fake?
Are your natural products 'truly natural' or a 'just a gimmick'?
Have you ever wondered about the authenticity of these "natural" claims that saturate the market or read the ingredients of your so-called ‘natural products’ only to find that many of those ingredients sound more like chemicals than natural items? This is because most 'natural products' or 'plant-based products' are made partially of natural ingredients and partially of synthetics.
Why don't they just use ONLY natural ingredients? Well, mostly because it's more expensive. But also, because they don't realize that it is possible to be 100% natural.
The focus on Alywillow is to make sure every ingredient serves a purpose in the product and helps make your life better. If we can't make it naturally, we don't make it. Just like the large corporations don't know how to use plants, we honestly don't know how to use those synthetic chemicals. It just isn't our thing. Read through our Ingredient List and you will see that all Alywillow products are made with pure plants and minerals and nothing else.
What is the motivating factor behind a company?
Maybe you trust that these big skin care companies will only use the bare minimum of synthetic chemicals, and only when necessary, and instead pack their products full of natural ingredients that are good for your well-being).
I wish! Unfortunately, that is not what they usually do. Most companies are primarily concerned with their profit margin. Synthetics are cheap and easy, so the more they can use them, the more money goes into their pockets. and quite frankly, your well-being isn't their motivating factor.
They want to convince you to buy their lotion, shampoo, soap, etc... so they may add ONE DROP of a natural ingredient and then write it in giant letters on the label "NOW CONTAINS SHEA BUTTER". They add a great color scheme, a catchy slogan, a pretty picture, and jump the price up – all to convince you that you are buying a natural product. It works for them. Their profits grow because you aren't noticing that they are selling you a lie.
The market is saturated with these lies and we see the evidence of their success everywhere you look, when you know where to look.
Alywillow is KINDNESS
We are determined to be natural for your well-being (and ours too).
One of the major motivating factors behind the intentions at Alywillow is kindness. We literally 'think' differently than most companies you have met. That's because we really care about you. We really want to make the world a better place.
If we can show you how to be kind to your body and give you products that improve your life, you will see an improvement in the quality of your life. We see it happen every day and it makes us happy.
Several decades ago, Aliya Trinity, the founder of Alywillow decided that since our ancestors lived without synthetic chemicals, she was going to find a way to do that too. She did it for herself and her family, then her friends, and now, through Alywillow, everyone can enjoy over 150 products made with absolutely no synthetic chemicals. We use over 200 plants in the formulation of our products and every scent, color, and ingredient is a plant or mineral.
We make Botanical products – with topical and inhalation applications.
Natural also means safe, right?
We wish that was true, but not everything natural is safe for you. Ever heard of poison ivy? It's natural and not safe. What about Tea Tree? Used too long and it can cause internal organ damage (and skin damage). Many of you like the way it makes your skin tingles, so companies will use it because you like it. But, it shouldn't really ever be used on your skin. There are much safer plant options that have the benefits of Tea Tree, without causing the internal or skin damage.
At Alywillow, we pay attention to the safety of each plant.
Integrity and Responsibility
We believe companies should be responsible for the ingredients in their products and do everything within their power to keep consumers safe, not because of government regulations and not because you want a tingle, but because it is the right thing to do. We take this responsibility seriously.
Not only do we make the Alywillow products from scratch using food grade, organic, therapeutic and medicinal ingredients.... we also use them - all the time. Our families, our children, and our grandchildren use them. And, when you go into our homes you will see them everywhere! We put our hearts into them. We make them for us. We make them for you.
Our full ingredient list contains over 200 plants and minerals and we examine each of these for their individual natural chemical composition (for proper usage) and re-examined at each harvest to ensure consistency.
Benefits of Natural Plant Chemicals
Through biotechnology and many other fields of sciences, we know that plants can offer a myriad of helpful benefits - like antimicrobial properties, reducing inflammation, slowing or speeding up the circulatory system, protecting the health of your cells (which slows down the signs of aging), and so much more. However, some plants can damage the body if used too frequently, in large volumes, or in sensitive populations like babies, epileptics, pregnant women.
In the creation of our formulas, we have developed our own safety guidelines that exceed the European safety guidelines in the use of plants and essential oils (those are the strictest guidelines in the world). Yet, we go beyond those guidelines and Alywillow safety standards are even higher. For these reasons and more, Alywillow products are classified into three different grade levels: Elemental, Therapeutic, and Medicinal.
Look at the consistency, scent, and color of your synthetic products. Are they perfectly consistent ALL THE TIME?
Synthetic products are consistent. When you have perfect consistency, all the time, you have synthetic chemicals in that product. Why is this? Because nature has lots of variety. Even the same plant can smell different and have different water content from one harvest to another.
People are accustomed to synthetic products.
Synthetic products have incredible consistency - with the same scent, color, and texture since their ingredients are artificially replicated. The average consumer is used to this and doesn't initially understand why truly natural products can not achieve the same level of consistency.
Alywillow is Nature
Why is the Scent, Color, and texture of my Alywillow product different from the last one I had?
At Alywillow, we don't use anything synthetic. Instead, we use over 200 PLANTS from around the world and every harvest is slightly different.
By their very nature, plants vary from harvest to harvest. Since our products are made from plants, you will sometimes notice variation in color, scent, or texture. This is completely normal and expected. If you think about it, this variation is a true sign of a natural product.
We formulate most of our products for their therapeutic and medicinal benefits, not their scent, color, or texture. So, they will still do what they were designed to do. The fact that they smell good is just an added bonus! Just keep in mind they will not always smell the same.
Even products within our Aromatic line (designed for fun and scent) will have variations, which is why our perfumes come with a series number. GRATITUDE PERFUME 101 indicates the batch number. The next batch we create will be called Gratitude Perfume 102 because the scent will vary slightly.
Consistency or Natural? Which is more important to you?
It is a matter of preference. While it is true that products made from synthetic ingredients are more consistent, that consistency also brings many unnecessary toxic properties into your life.
It has always been our goal at Alywillow to bring you the very best plants to help make life better. We hope you will keep choosing a natural life, even if it does surprise you occasionally. ;-)
