Holiday gifts that give back!

Even better than a great gift is a great product that helps out the millions around the world that are less fortunate. The Lotus Flower scent from Nature’s Gate smells so great and the lotion absorbs quickly without leaving any residue on your hands. Check out Nature’s Gate Lotus Flower gift or their other scents, Pineapple and Vanilla Bean at your local Whole Foods Market.

Even better, they help a good cause – a portion of sales of the gift sets go towards Nature’s Gate’s partnership with WaterAid America- a nonprofit organization that helps underdeveloped countries build sustainable water systems.

What’s cool about the gift sets (body lotion and body wash) is that they’re created around ingredients that are abundant in the countries that Nature’s Gate will be helping through this partnership. For instance, their Vanilla Bean gift set features ingredients from Madagascar and their Lotus Flower gift set features ingredients from India, two countries facing a lack of clean water! Additionally, ALL Nature’s Gate products are free of animal-derived ingredients and are NEVER tested on animals.

The Lotus Flower symbolizes purity, life and enlightenment. In India, over 170 million people don’t have access to safe water, and almost 9% of children die before their 5th birthday, primarily due to water-related diseases.

This gift set features ingredients and scents from India, a country facing a lack of clean water. Nature’s Gate supports WaterAid America to help poor communities in Asia and Africa gain access to sustainable supplies of safe, clean water.

Body Wash: Gently cleanses without stripping skin of essential moisture. Lotus Flower Extract and Indian Gooseberry contain high levels of skin enhancing antioxidants while Organic Mango Butter and Jojoba Oil moisturize and revitalize skin.

Body Lotion: Nourishing and hydrating body lotion features Lotus Flower Extract and Tumeric known to improve skin radiance and tone. Organic Mango Butter and Jojoba Oil moisturize and revitalize skin.

Available at your local natural product stores and Whole Foods Market.

Thanks for writing about this company. I created a company in memory of my 28 year old sister, Liz, who died from breast cancer. Uptown Liz (www.uptownliz.com) promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to charity. You can shop on this one-of-a-kind Web site by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are making a difference. There are many great art, clothing, jewelry, house wares, beauty and eco-friendly products (just to name a few) that benefit charities all over the world.

Thanks for a great post! I really enjoy giving gifts that give back and love finding new ideas. This year I found a really lovely Infinity pendant at All Wired Up jewelry. It’s unlike anything else I have seen before plus it is made with recycled materials. They are donating a portion of the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. You can find them online at http://www.allwiredupjewelry.com. Happy shopping!
