When I had a chance to try some new, unreleased products from Saint Francis Organics a few weeks back, I was thrilled. Saint Francis Organics manufactures USDA and NSF organic personal care and cleaning products. Choosing a product certified by NSF lets you know the company complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn NSF certification. It requires a minimum of 70% organic content and contain no harsh synthetic chemicals and is harshly restrictive to synthetic chemicals. NSF certification also requires companies to state the exact percentage of organic content based on the requirements of the standard.

St. Francis Organics Lemon Shampoo: I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve used lemon scented anything in my hair, as it’s not normally the smell I gravitate towards. When it wasn’t my first soap berry shampoo experience, I was completely blown away by the lather from such a small amount of product used. My hair is extremely untamable and normally requires using quite a bit of product from the shampoo and conditioner department to keep it clean and managable. Not only did this lemon scent actually smell incredible, it truly did the job – removing hairspray and late night face mask clumps (tell me I’m not the only person this happens to!) and getting my hair nice and clean.

Peppermint/Vanilla Body Wash: If we’re gonna go with favorites in this line, this Peppermint-Vanilla body wash (and it’s subsequent friend, Peppermint/Vanilla lotion) would be up there for me. This smells just like Christmas – and took me home, baking cookies with my family, opening presents under the tree – during my shower experience. I couldn’t get enough of it, which is great because it seems to last forever! I only needed a small dollop in a wash cloth and I was good to go! It got me squeaky clean with no leftover odors and the smell is pure candy.

St. Francis Organics Lavender Hand Soap: I am always looking for better, natural alternatives to washing my hands in this house! This sample was a little bit of a pain without a pump (you either have to open the bottle before and pour some on before the water starts or do the whole thing when your hands are already wet). Sample size aside, this old fashioned, castile-based liquid soap works incredibly well and I’m looking forward to replacing my soap-by-the-sink options with a full size version of this sensual Lavender scented hand soap. It’s packed with nourishing teas, butters, oils and soaps, and I am a sucker for this relaxing scent. It truly gets your hands clean with no mess, fuss or concerns about them now being covered in cancer causing chemicals once they’re finally “clean”.
