The Inspiration

Me & Baby GirlI remember waking up that morning and getting ready for work. As I was getting ready I noticed I was still having the mild contractions that had started the night before. At first I thought nothing of it and then a little angel whispered in my ear “you better stay home today”. It’s a good thing I did because little did I know I was in labor. I went to the hospital around one o’clock and was sent home because the nurses said I hadn’t dilated. Of course at this point I was extremely frustrated wondering if I would have to go through an entire weekend feeling like this. I went home to try and rest but as you probably already know rest was nowhere in sight! I attempted to lay down for about an hour. As soon as I got up an hour later the contractions hit like a sledgehammer. It was like no pain I’ve ever experienced. My daughter was born that night at 11:31pm April 05, 2012. She took my breath away!

Our Birth

Four months later while out shopping with my mom and daughter a stranger walked by and couldn’t help but admire how cute she was. The first thing the person did was reach for my daughter’s hand not knowing that she was at the stage where she was putting any and everything in her mouth. I cringed, knowing I didn’t have anything to clean her hands with. I reached for my antibacterial gel and realized I didn’t want that on her hands either. As soon as I got home I started to Google looking for some way to cleanse my baby’s hands that was safe, non-toxic and and most importantly edible. It didn’t take me long to realize there was nothing out there. I wanted products that were as healthy as the food we were eating, literally. That was the day Greenplicity was born!

Food for the Skin

Personal care products are often marketed as safe and gentle when they are anything but that. I was mortified to find out that many of our skincare products are commonly contaminated with toxic chemicals linked to cancer and skin allergies. We believe in using all natural, non-toxic, food grade ingredients that are healthy for the skin. Your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it, so if you can’t put it in your mouth you shouldn’t be putting it on your skin either. Our skincare products are perfect for the whole family from the youngest to the oldest. Here at Greenplicity we’re women/men, moms, parents, and caregivers just like you and we only want the best for ourselves and our families. Feed the skin your’e in with healthy, nutrient rich products made with your skin in mind.
