[formerly Dakota Free] Gluten-free, allergen specific and hypoallergenic skin care, bath, baby, spa and hair care products. “We have been helping families stay healthy and serving those with celiac disease, allergies, autism, cancer, chemical sensitivities, asthma, eczema and other skin issues since 2000. Every item has been handcrafted in a dedicated gluten-free facility with careful attention to identifying and tracking the allergen status of each product.” This looks to be one of the most ingredient conscious companies I’ve seen. They have a long list of undesirable ingredients that they track and have much information on their website about the ways ingredients you don’t want can get into products. There is an attribute checklist on each product page to help you choose the right item for your specific need.

Indoor house shoes/slippers for men, women and children, made of handcrafted wool felt by women artisans. Also felted insoles. Many nice colors and neutrals. I bought a pair of these and I love them. They keep my feet nice and warm on foggy coastal California mornings. “Kyrgies are born of a tradition that is thousands of years old. Kyrgies are produced in Bishkek, Kyrgystan, where wet felting with sheep wool is both a tradition and a necessity. No other textile withstands heat in the summer and the cold, wet winters as well as wool felt. Because of this, the Kyrgyz people have been felting for centuries, passing this skill on from one generation to the next. The Kyrgyz women who make our Kyrgies use felting techniques that have been developed over thousands of years. They mix their hands in water, wool, and 100% natural soap, not harmful toxic chemicals. By sourcing our felt products in Kyrgyzstan, we are supporting a sustainable cultural legacy.” Their All Naturals, Classics, and Insoles meet my toxic-free standards.
