We believe that the products you put on your body ought to be as safe and natural as the food you eat.
We take great care in choosing the cleanest products available: rest assured that our products are free of unnecessary artificial ingredients like parabens, colorings, preservatives, binders, or fillers, and we are your source for vegetarian, vegan, and hypoallergenic health and body care options.
We take education seriously, so we have a shelf of reference books on hand for you to peruse, as well as an always-up-to-date HealthNotes kiosk to quickly research everything from natural remedies for ailments to potential drug interactions.
Some people just radiate good health. This is especially true of the Co-op’s wellness department (“department” doesn’t do it justice – it’s really more of a family), whose staff members just glow. It’s fitting. It also raises the question: What are their secrets? Get a glimpse into our lovely team’s world of wellness and get their everyday health tips right here.
Here are just a few of our favorite companies:
Eco Lips, another nationally-recognized local company, makes vegan, tinted, and SPF lip balms made with organic ingredients, right in Cedar Rapids, Iowa!
Alaffia is Fair Trade certified – every product! – and they give back to women's cooperatives in Togo, Africa. Purchasing Alaffia products helps support the global community.
