From a debilitating MS diagnosis to creating wildly fresh skincare
Our founder Natalie, the Skincare Chef, has been successfully reversing her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis since being carried into the hospital by her husband unable to walk or talk in 2014. Natalie began studying the power of superfoods and probiotics for the body. Radically changing her life, she immediately adopted a clean eating and clean living lifestyle. Today Natalie has fully regained her health and has made it her mission to share the importance of REAL food and CLEAN skincare.
Meet our founder, Natalie
"July 2nd, 2014 lying in the ER, unable to walk or talk I was handed the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis(MS).
MS is an incurable, unpredictable, often disabling autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system disrupting the flow of information within the brain, and thus the body. The cause of MS is still unknown. It affects 2.3 million people worldwide.” Find out more about MS here.
From my best guesstimate, I have been sharing the real estate in my head with MS since the year 1999, right after the birth of my second child. Then in my mid 40's, the progression and effects became full-blown, my former life began to crumble and enormous amounts of pressure and stress began to build within my body. Isolated, sick and feeling helpless I decided to change my story.
After intense research, I came to the conclusion that toxins in my life and the very food I was eating contributed greatly to my illness. Three days after my diagnosis I began treating my MS with a real whole food, toxic-free lifestyle bypassing all conventional drugs. Within 3 days of purging chemical laden foods from my life, I began feeling better and my symptoms began to dissipate. Energy began to return to my once broken and lifeless body, needless to say, I was inspired and on a mission to reverse my MS!
Now understanding the power of a toxic-free lifestyle, organic clean skincare was quickly proving to be one of the hardest to replace as many well-known brands are loaded with chemicals, preservatives, and fragrances to name a few. So, my mission became clear to formulate and produce my own organic, toxic free skin care line that was luscious, nutritious and fed my skin beautiful.
Be Well Skincare was launched in May 2017.
Now 50 years old, I am thriving and absolutely loving the skin I am, and I am so excited to share be well with you. After all, what we feed our skin is just as important as what we feed our bellies"

Love + Be Well believes...
Living starts with simply getting back to the basics, our roots, fueling our bodies the way they were designed to function, on real food.
Feeding our skin is just as important as feeding our bodies. After all, the skin is the largest organ we have making up 60% of our body!
There is no room in skincare for parabens, preservatives, alcohol, fragrances, dyes, or any other ingredients you do not recognize. If you don’t recognize it, neither will your body.
You should recognize each and every ingredient in your organic skin care product. that is why we have taken the time to list every single ingredient, their origin, and therapeutic benefits.
All humans should have the opportunity to live a toxic free, clean lifestyle with just a little knowledge and know how.
Embracing the skin you're in at every age is is our goal for everybody. Feeling beautiful, confidant and healthy is easy when using be well superfood skincare.
Not gonna lie, we like to brag on our clean products especially The Best Deodorant!
Our deodorant is our #1 selling product year round, no fail, reaching new customers every single day. Why? Because clean deodorant is a must do for all of us. Yes, it is still a choice, but once you know the dangers of conventional deodorants you just can't "un know" it.
We wouldn't swallow a spoonful of toxic ingredients, but for some reason we are ok smearing them all over our bodies with skincare and our underarms with deodorant, which actually may be worse!
Here's the truth - when we eat something our bodies break it down through our digestive system, but when we place something on our skin it enters our bloodstream directly...NO FILTER!
Conventional deodorants are filled with endocrine disruptors, these are chemicals that mess with your body's reproductive and developmental hormones. Some of these chemicals are absorbed through your skin and stored in your fat cells. Kind of a big deal right?!? We think so!
5 Dangerous ingredients conventional deodorants + skincare contain:
+parabens - preservative linked to estrogen interference
+aluminum - metal linked to tumor growth
+triclosan - disrupts your skins bacteria balance + thyroid function
+phthalates - compounds that makes fragrance "stick" around and is linked to testosterone disruption
+fragrance - it's impossible to know what chemicals are concealed under this word because scents are protected under the law and do not have to be disclosed
Even natural deodorants can cause irritation! from widely used baking soda
which can itch, stain your clothes and clog your pores, as well as butters and oils that can do the same. Most include heavy use of essential oils to "cover up" smell, and some even contain animal products
NOW you know
READING LABELS matters, even when it comes to our skincare. We are our own best advocate when it comes to our health. We get to decide what goes in our bodies!
Just say no to toxic chemicals

Yum Yum Sauce......You know that delicious Japanese Steakhouse favorite sauce that is so delicious you want to dunk everything in it? Well, here is that recipe! It's almost too easy to make its sinful. We used all organic, clean ingredients, meaning no preservatives, added sugars or weird manmade junk we don't know what it is. If going vegan, just swap your mayo + butter for vegan options and it still is just as delish!
We also decided to create a fun little rice bowl to serve this Yum Yum sauce on, which easily lends itself to adding meat if you wish....like shrimp, chicken, and of course steak!
+1/2 cup mayo (we used Chosen Foods avocado mayo)
+2 Tbls water
+1 1/2 Tbls Ketchup (we used Primal Kitchen)
+1 Tbls Butter
+1 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
+3/4 tsp garlic powder
+3/4 tsp onion powder
+3/4 tsp smoky paprika
Combine all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together until smooth + creamy.
We cooked our rice in coconut milk, stirred in some nori strips, and kimchi. Topped with green onions, radish slivers, sesame seeds, and of course Yum Yum Sauce!!!
This is a gut friendly dish that will feed your natural glow:)

Such a fun spring dish, and looks so pretty. You can make this Cheesy Polenta without cheese or use a vegan cheese to keep it 100% dairy free. We switch it up between a good swiss cheese like Le Gruyere or sometimes we like to use parmesan. And if you have never had a roasted radish, today is your day, you can thank us later.
1 cup polenta
4 cups broth (any kind you wish, or water)
1 tsp salt
2 tbls butter or ghee(or vegan choice)
1 cup shredded swiss cheese(or vegan choice)
Carrots - cut into sticks
Broccoli - cut into bite sized pieces
Radish - cut in half
Chives for garnish
Fill a saucepan with your broth and salt. Bring to a boil. Whisk in polenta slowly stirring the entire time.
Turn heat down to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring every now and again.
Chop your veggies and drizzle with olive oil, s+p, and pop in a 425 oven and roast for 20 minutes.
When your polenta is done add your butter and stir in the cheese, yum!
Last, serve up in a pretty bowl and top with roasted veggies + chives.
Love + Eat Well,
Do you love coleslaw or not? That is the question. If you do, this recipe is for you! Healthy KFC knockoff Cole Slaw is on repeat over here and we eat it with everything.
No mayo or sugar here, just high protein greek yogurt(you can use a nut yogurt and keep this dairy free too) and and natural raw honey. We personally love the coconut milk and lime in here but you could replace with another creamy milk and lemon if you want.
1 small to medium head of green cabbage
1 large carrot
1/4 of a large yellow or white onion
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup raw honey
1 tbls brown mustard
2 tbls coconut vinegar
3 tbls lime juice
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Add the slaw ingredients to your food processor and shred.
Add all the dressing ingredients to a bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.
Pour dressing over slaw and mix well.
