One square inch of skin is reported to contain approximately 65 hairs, 100 sebaceous glands, 78 yards of nerves, 19 yards of blood vessels, 9,500,000 cells, 1,300 nerve endings, and 650 sweat glands.
Like a sponge, our skin absorbs chemicals. We can absorb up to 60 percent of what we put on our skin. In fact, today many medicines are given in "patch" form to be absorbed through the skin. Since our skin cannot discriminate between synthetic and natural, or between harmful and beneficial, it may absorb harmful chemicals present is commercial skin care products.
What Do You Want to put on Your Skin?
Discouraged by the harsh commercial soaps available, we began creating our own handmade soaps and skin care products with all natural ingredients.
Our bodies are constantly exposed to synthetic chemicals in air, water, and food--why add to the problem by applying synthetic products to your skin and hair. The long term effects of synthetic chemicals on the body are still unknown.
Most of the ingredients that are used to make Chagrin Valley products can be found in your garden and kitchen pantry. These all natural nourishing ingredients are packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Natural and Organic Products are Eco-friendly!
Organic ingredients means organic farming. Organic farming methods are better for the environment. It improves the quality of our environment by protecting our land and groundwater from contamination and by promoting the use of sustainable resources and the conservation of soil and water.
Also, many of the synthetic chemicals found in commercial skin care products do not naturally breakdown. Instead as they wash down our drains, they accumulate in our ecosystems. These chemicals infiltrate our our lakes, streams, rivers and public water systems.
When we say NATURAL we mean NATURAL!
Look at the ingredients for a product you are now using. Although it may have the words “all natural" or "organic" on the label, is it really an all natural product?
Synthetic ingredients can cause skin irritation and pollute our environment. Some are possible carcinogens or endocrine disrupters. Synthetic additives provide no benefit.
