ABOUT Grateful Body
Grateful Body is one of the first and earliest, truly natural skincare producers in this country. The company was created in the 90's but the team has been herbalists and gardeners (and cherishing all natural life) since the early 70's. Grateful Body uses fresh, organic, biodynamic and ethically wildcrafted, whole botanical ingredients. The company believes that the body is connected to all life and our ingredient choices reflect this basic, indisputable reality. Formulating according to the intelligence of nature not the intellect of the laboratory, the company honors and respects the dynamic but fragile ecosystem by making products that are in harmony and balance with the planet.
Grateful Body is a family business that began for very personal reasons. The founder and formulator, Shannon, lost two sisters to cancer before he was out of college. From this Shannon began examining common lifestyle choices and the substances that we (women especially) expose our bodies to, in order to understand why cancer is becoming more and more prevalent. He also studied the medical understanding of older cultures, including traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic and Native American healing, all of which supported his desire to share the powerful benefits of vital plants that are used properly and respectfully.
