Kid Licks: edible nail polish for kids!

If you’ve ever painted your little’s nails, you have probably seen them try to pick it off with their teeth, if not eat it! Well, Kid Licks has come up with a line of nail polishes that are made entirely of food, and are organic, vegan, non-GMO and cruelty free. It dries in five minutes, comes off with water, and is completely safe to eat! I think that’s genius.

Audrey and Josh are the couple behind Kid Licks, and with three kids of their own, and no food-based polish they could find on their own, they knew they had to create one. Audrey said, “I wanted a way for our children to paint their nails by themselves without having to worry about something toxic getting in their mouths, since regular nail polish, and even other nail polish for kids, is made with chemicals and plastics that we would not want them ingesting.”

Of course, making things with their hands, as well as the freedom to be their own bosses, were a driving force behind starting Kid Licks: “Handmade goods to me are some of the highest quality products out there. I would rather have one quality item made by hand than multiple items that were mass produced using low quality materials. …I love that I can get creative and try new ways of marketing, packaging, and creating new recipes without needing permission from anyone to use this kind of imaginativeness.”

I personally think it’s a great idea, and wish them so much success! Here are a few of their products:

Revival Body Care: Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan, Non-Toxic, Cruelty Free Skin Care

Skin is our largest organ and absorbs everything we put onto it, so it is so important to consider using products that are chemical free. Revival Body Care products are created using only the finest ingredients (Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan, Non-Toxic, Cruelty Free).  Nicole, the owner and creator of Revival Body Care has a passion for healthy lifestyles, and is excited to share her labor of love! While she and her family eat all organic, non-GMO, clean foods and are involved in physical activities like Pilates and Barre, she adds, “I am also extremely careful about the products that we use ON our bodies! I make every effort to use products that are free of toxins, chemicals and preservatives. SKIN is our largest organ and is porous which means that anything you put ON it will end up being absorbed INTO it. (Lotions, deodorants, make-up, soaps, etc.). … I am more careful than ever when it comes to my skin care regime. A huge part of that regime is exfoliation.”
One of her main (and favorite!) ingredients in her products is coconut oil, “I truly believe that it is God’s gift! The uses are countless… My passion for coconut oil led me to creating some FABULOUS body scrubs that incorporate all natural ingredients & essential oils. The results were beyond expectation!”

When I asked her about why she started her business, Nicole said, “I’ve gone through some personal changes this past year and also reached my 7th year with my business, Sunshine Couture. I was ready to expand and find something NEW that showcase my passions and to help educate my loved ones about a more holistic approach. This led to the creation of Revival Body Care. I am in LOVE with the products and I know you will be too! I’ve done everything from creating “recipes”, designing my Logo/packaging, social media and developing my website.”

Nicole has been an entrepreneur for 7 years, and encourages anyone who feels they want to start a business to take the leap: “If you have a passion, go for it!  Never give up and always keep learning and continue to gather inspiration, whether it be from nature, museums, music, travel or even your local craft store!  xo, Nicole”

Isn’t her enthusiasm contagious!? I love it! Here are just a few of the lovely scrubs that Revival Body Care offers:

Spinster Sisters Co. – All natural, handcrafted soaps, scrubs, shampoo and lotion.

Not only is all their packaging super cool, but Spinster Sisters Co. offers  over 30 different “flavors” of wonderful, fragrant, luxurious and moisturizing handmade soaps, lotions, salves, soaks and scrubs. I also love that Spinster Sisters is a family owned and operated business! They use raw ingredients that are simple and recognizable – Olive, Coconut, Palm, Castor, Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Avocado and Hempseed Oils, and Cocoa and Fair-Trade Shea Butters.  They even grow many of the herbs and botanicals that are used in their products and the other ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible.  They also use simple recycled/recyclable packaging to conserve resources and reduce waste. I think it’s important to pamper yourself, and Spinster Sisters helps you do just that in a way you can feel REALLY good about!
