Intelligent Nutrients Hair/Skin Care, Supplements
Last spring was the launch of an exciting new line of hair care, skin care, aromatics and nutraceutical supplements: Intelligent Nutrients.
Intelligent Nutrients is 100% organic. It was developed by the founder of Aveda (and active environmentalist), Horst Rechelbacher. Aveda is from Minnesota, like me. But that’s not the only reason I like it!
I had the opportunity to try a whole gamut of Intelligent Nutrient products. As you can see, they are all beautifully (but not overly) packaged.
I’ll highlight my favorites out of all of the types:
1. Spray-On Detangler : I have very fine hair that is incredibly prone to tangles. I’ve never consistently used detangler, though, since I wasn’t confident in its origins or its effectiveness. Intelligent Nutrients Detangler was very helpful while not weighing my hair down. Its smell is fresh and light- not toxic at all!
2. Lip Delivery Nutrition (aka Lip Balm): This lip balm is great! I love the tall, thin shape and its sweet smell. It really “wakes up” the lips, so to speak. And apparently it’s nutritious for them, too- score.
3. Intellimune Tablets : These are soft, crunchy pebbles that come in a bottle. They’re chewable and a little bit “seedy” and a little bit “fruity.” I really got used to them and now I really look forward to eating my dose (2-4 pebbles) each day. They’re antioxidantly potent, which helps me feel better (psychologically at minimum) on those days where coffee, take-out and wine make up the rest of my intake. (Though coffee and wine each have a lot of antioxidants too, right?)
4. Certified Organic Hair Balm : Long live hair balm! It’s very helpful for people with fine hair (see #1), for people whose hair likes to do “its own thing,” or for people who live in humid climates: ie, for nearly everyone. This hair balm actually reminds me a lot of Aveda’s hair stick which is shaped like a deodorant stick and deserves serious credit for keeping me and my sister looking halfway decent during high school swim seasons.
