Our Mission is to bring the POWER OF NATURE into Daily Routine™
Our goal is to educate ourselves and others about how to incorporate the healing powers of nature in our lives. We share what we learn in our email newsletter and use the knowledge gained to formulate products that enhance your daily routine.
The ingredients we use are in the purest, least refined form we could find and as close to the original source as possible. As a policy, we NEVER sacrifice quality for price.
We believe making the switch to nature-infused products can help our society heal on a individual and collective level. Incorporating herbs, essential oils and healthy fats into your daily routine excites your senses, enhances your mood and connects you with your natural surroundings.
Our products help nurture the desire to improve physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
As an added benefit, your largest organ, your skin, gets the nutrients, not chemicals, it deserves. Our products help you eliminate exposure to hundreds of toxins found in many store-bought skincare products and nourish your body from the outside in.
It's amazing to think that such a simple change in your routine can have such a big impact, but we are proof that it can.
Meet the Team
When our first baby was born with sensitive skin, we became very aware of toxins found in skincare. After tirelessly seeking out products claiming to be "all natural", but really containing ingredients that were "nature-identical" or "nature-derived", we combined our knowledge of aromatherapy, herbs and holistic nutrition and started making our own moisturizers.
Over time we found more ways to live life more naturally. This led us to a wonderful family ranch in southern Colorado raising grass-fed cattle. A conversation with the wife of the ranch led us into a discussion about the benefits of the fat rendered from these cows.
We began reading everything we could about the history and science behind grass fed tallow (fat). What we found was remarkable. Naturally, we had to re-examine our thinking about using ALL of nature's gifts. We also came across the idea of making soap.
So, we started formulating our recipes with the fat we rendered, herbs and essential oils. We created blends for family members with certain skin and health issues and after all the positive feedback about how our products were transforming people's lives, we decided to share them with the world. And thus, Nefertem Naturals was born in 2012.
We, Andre and Brittany Hogan (+ 3 kiddos), handle everything from handcrafting our products to designing our labels to personally writing every blog, email and thank you note.
Who is "Nefertem"?
Nefertem is the African God who introduced plant essences to the world, according to the creation story of an advanced civilization found along the Nile Valley thousands of years ago. It is said that before anything else existed in the world, there was the great waters (Nun) and there was the sun God (Ra). One day, a flower emerged from the water and began to open with the rising of the sun. Inside that Blue Lily flower (otherwise known as the lotus), was a young man named Nefertem. As he stood, he held out his hands and gave plants to the world. He has been deemed the God of Beautification (Cosmetics), the Healing Arts (herbs) and Aromatherapy (Perfume).
Nefertem symbolizes the connection we have with nature
Humans have evolved alongside plants and animals for millions of years. Naturally, we have similarities and offer each other benefits.
The balance between us is likened to that of the Yin and the Yang - a duality, a balance, a harmony, a reciprocity.
We are confident that the more we learn about the use of nature's gifts and the more ways we can find to apply that knowledge into our everyday routine, the better we will feel and the better the whole world will be.
We may be idealistic but hey, "where there is no vision, the people will parrish".
We want to extend a massive THANK YOU to all of our faithful customers. We appreciate that you value what we do and how we do it and hope to provide you with the kind of quality products you and your family need for many years to come.
