Hi, I'm Patricia Nicholes, the founder and owner of Cress Spring Body Care.  Cress Spring Body Care was born out of a need for effective skin care without the fear of dangerous chemicals, parabens, petrochemicals, additives, artificial fragrances and preservatives.  We want our customers satisfied with beautiful skin, regardless of your starting point.  We formulate our products using the highest quality, fresh, unrefined ingredients to make you and your skin glow.  We believe in making a positive impact on the world around us and source fair trade, sustainable and local ingredients.

My story:  I have had sensitive, skin my entire life.  After growing up using lotions that stung and irritated my dry, itchy skin, she started to buy natural and organic products.  I searched in many stores for something that would work for my sensitive skin.  Everything I found had preservatives, binders and emulsifiers which can clog pores and inflame the skin (and did for me), or the product said natural but was loaded with unwanted and unnecessary ingredients.  I experimented with different oils for moisturizing and found them to be greasy and not absorb into the skin. My concerns grew as my skin became dehydrated, sun-damaged and fine lines turned into wrinkles. 

I decided there had to be a way to have amazing skin and looked to the healing qualities nature provides for the answer.  After years of research and trial and error on my own skin, I designed a face cream that healed my skin.  By combining fresh, high quality, unrefined and anti-oxidant rich oils and butters, this cream made my skin glow with youthful radiance and the wrinkles disappeared.  During this time, I also started developing other formulas: detoxifying exfoliators, cleansers and lip balms, and more face creams to help people with a variety of skin care issues.  I designed everything to be preservative, chemical and toxin free using fresh organic ingredients, high in nutrients and fair trade as much as possible.  Now Cress Spring Body Care offers a collection of facial care products to effectively address different skin care needs.  And you can feel confident that your skin care products are powerful in achieving beautiful skin and having a positive impact on the world around you.
