The Natural Products Expo offered thousands of companies a platform to showcase their goods. There were thousands of visitors as well so apologies for the poor sound quality in the videos below. Here are notables in the category of To Heal:
Intimina – Intimina is a European line of washes, accessories, personal massagers and kegel exercisers designed with women’s health (and pleasure!) in mind. This beautifully branded line uses graduated weight balls for insertion to improve pelvic floor muscles. A sexy, sleek and intuitive line.
Squatty Potty – Squatty Potty wants to know, Have you pooped today? They sported tee shirts and oversize buttons with the same question and invited passersby to sit down on the toilet in their booth to get into squatting position. Founder Bobby Edwards is on a mission to get his ergonomic footstool (inspired by his mother’s struggle with colon problems) into bathrooms and get people squatting to improve colon health, maximize elimination, reduce hemorrhoids and constipation and even strengthen pelvic floor muscles. Squatting is ideal for laboring women and just about anyone else who enjoys the myriad benefits of this humble position.
Woo Bamboo – Woo Bamboo are eco-friendly toothbrushes made of organic bamboo. Unlike the traditional plastic toothbrush, they do not get sticky and are compostable. No reason not to woo, we say! This three-month old line is quite eco-friendly and likeable.
Dairyface – Dairyface is a line of dairy-based skincare lotions that have a rich, creamy texture and are loaded with skin moisturizing healthy fats. The line must be refrigerated.
Worker B – I have used Worker B Raw Honey Face Wash every morning since my return from Natural Products Expo. Worker B is based in Minneapolis and uses locally sourced raw honey which is loaded antioxidants. All of their products are hand-made in small batches and ideal for ultra-sensitive skin.
Dr. OH Patch – The Dr. OH Patch uses essential oils and herbs in a transdermal delivery system to alleviate menstrual cramps. A smart concept for women who want to avoid OTC pain relievers.
