CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Madre Labs Hair and Body Care Line Review & Giveaway!!


Madre Labs, a sub­sidiary of iHerb.com, car­ries an exten­sive line of nat­ural Hair and Body Care prod­ucts that are phe­nom­e­nal! I really stum­bled upon their web­site and became intrigued with all of the awe­some prod­ucts that they have to offer.

A com­plete bonus about this com­pany is that they clearly mark on their pack­ag­ing a “No No-Nos” Seal, which means No sul­fates, parabens, dyes, ani­mal ingre­di­ents and ani­mal test­ing. All of their ingre­di­ents are con­sid­ered gen­tle, biodegrad­able and “green” and have received good safety rat­ings and they are also in eco-friendly packaging!!





All of Madre Labs prod­ucts do not con­tain any of the harsh or poten­tially harm­ful ingre­di­ents found in many other brands. Your skin is like a sponge that absorbs much of what it comes into con­tact with, so it’s best to avoid putting poten­tially harm­ful ingre­di­ents directly on your skin to elim­i­nate the pos­si­bil­ity that they will be absorbed into the body.


“At Madre Labs® Our Mis­sion Is Simple

To cre­ate truly inno­v­a­tive and unique prod­ucts of the high­est qual­ity, assist­ing our health-minded cus­tomers in sup­port­ing their well-being — both inside and out, offer­ing fin­ished goods that WE OURSELVES want to use.

What We’re All About

On the fol­low­ing web pages we’ll intro­duce you to sev­eral unique prod­ucts we con­sider to be vital (and often miss­ing) foun­da­tional aspects of a vibrant, healthy lifestyle.

We are all about the pos­i­tives of this indus­try and tak­ing the higher road! We sin­cerely hope to help you on your path to more vibrant health.

Madre Labs, Inc. has been many years in the mak­ing, but was not a for­mal entity until Sep­tem­ber, 2008. Due to such a long ges­ta­tion period, the found­ing team mem­bers (with over 40 years com­bined expe­ri­ence in the nat­ural prod­ucts indus­try) have been able to study the trends, devel­op­ments and emerg­ing sci­ence of how nat­ural foods, herbs and nutraceu­ti­cals may help sup­port opti­mal well-being. Also, we have been able to ascer­tain areas of the mar­ket­place where the pub­lic could be bet­ter served.

From this point, we have worked dili­gently to cre­ate truly inno­v­a­tive and unique prod­ucts of the high­est qual­ity, assist­ing our health-minded cus­tomers in sup­port­ing their well-being — both inside and out, offer­ing fin­ished goods that WE OURSELVES want to use. As a result, we have taken sev­eral extra steps to ensure we are offer­ing the high­est qual­ity fin­ished prod­ucts to our loyal cus­tomers, such as:

Sourc­ing and using only the high­est qual­ity raw mate­ri­als avail­able. As you may know, there are var­i­ous grades and ori­gins of nat­ural prod­uct raw mate­ri­als. We have cho­sen the very best that is avail­able, and gen­er­ally speak­ing, the most expen­sive. Most of our qual­i­fied raw mate­ri­als are either man­u­fac­tured in the United States or imported from Japan & Europe by rep­utable ven­dors.
Employ­ing sev­eral of the Industry’s most well-respected, quality-obsessed con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ers to blend and pack­age our inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts. Our con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ers are licensed by the State of Cal­i­for­nia Health Dept. to man­u­fac­ture phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal drugs, and employ a team of highly qual­i­fied and skilled team mem­bers who have worked in the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal, food & dietary sup­ple­ment and per­sonal care indus­tries. (see Qual­ity Page for more detailed info)
Imple­ment­ing an Ana­lyt­i­cal Test­ing Pro­gram, thus ensur­ing the qual­ity, con­sis­tency, iden­tity and purity of our incom­ing raw mate­ri­als. We ana­lyze our qual­i­fied raw mate­ri­als at the time of pur­chase, and test our fin­ished prod­ucts imme­di­ately after man­u­fac­tur­ing. (see Qual­ity Page for more detailed info)
Our first three prod­ucts (Immune Punch®, Midori Greens® & Eureka! Berries®) offer what we con­sider to be impor­tant (and often miss­ing) foun­da­tional aspects of healthy whole-food based sup­ple­men­ta­tion. Immune Punch® offers well-rounded nat­ural sup­port for our crit­i­cal immune sys­tem.* Midori Greens® is a very inno­v­a­tive blend that sup­plies con­cen­trated whole green nutri­tion. Our third prod­uct, Eureka! Berries®, con­sists of a full spec­trum of con­cen­trated super­fruit and wild berry pow­ders, designed to sat­isfy our bod­ies’ need for qual­ity fruit nutri­tion and deliver much-needed phytonutrients.

In our phi­los­o­phy, using our prod­ucts is one part, albeit an impor­tant one, of a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. Other aspects include, but are not lim­i­tied to the fol­low­ing: a proper diet, reg­u­lar exer­cise, suf­fi­cient intake of pure healthy flu­ids, reduce expo­sure to tobacco smoke and other envi­ron­men­tal tox­ins, ade­quate qual­ity sleep, reduce stress, healthy men­tal out­look & social connectedness.

We are truly pas­sion­ate about what we do. We are all about the pos­i­tives of this indus­try and tak­ing the higher road! We sin­cerely hope we can help you on your path to more vibrant health.

Please stay tuned, as Madre Labs® is con­tin­u­ally for­mu­lat­ing new & inno­v­a­tive products.
