Sandee got interested in living a non-toxic lifestyle many decades ago. As a little girl, she experienced a bad reaction to the ingredients in a perfume that left red welts on her skin. As a teenager, she participated in the first annual Earth Day and has been fired up about a more natural lifestyle ever since.
Her company, No Tox Life was born from the desire to provide natural, toxin-free vegan body care to help you live a cleaner, greener lifestyle. No Tox Life is a local, family-run business and each product is handmade using the highest-quality ingredients they can find.
If you look at big brands in the health and beauty products industry, you will find harsh detergents, petroleum-derived ingredients, toxic preservatives, and a host of other ingredients with dangerous side effects. No Tox Life doesn’t believe in using ingredients you can’t pronounce. Their products are made with gentle oils such as olive, coconut, and rice bran oil. They use mango butter, shea butter, essential oils, natural clays and minerals – all ingredients your skin will love.
Sandee stopped by The Food Heals Podcast to share her wisdom and knowledge on how to live a “No Tox Life,” how to choose organic, non-toxic beauty products, what ingredients to avoid and why she and her husband went vegan!
Always interested in science and math, Sandee Ferman recently rehabilitated a skill in the arts. She is an accomplished watercolor painter. In 2013, she discovered the art and science of soap making and — voila! The best of both worlds.
In addition to being a certified woman-owned small business, No Tox Life is also a family business. Sandee’s daughter Callie Ferman is the creative mind behind No Tox Life’s marketing, design and product photography.
Callie has a unique background including working in a print shop, doing sales, administration, design, marketing, photography, and more recently studying web development. Her combination of skills are all put to use at different points in the business.
