You see the term “natural” in plenty of places these days, but Nature’s Gate’s products give the term a whole new meaning. Founders Leo and Vladimir turned their vision for this unique company into reality when they hand-collected rainwater, blended it with natural herbs from their herb shop, and created the very first Rainwater Herbal Shampoo approximately 40 years ago. They gave it away to their friends and customers of their store, and soon it became a hit along Venice Beach, California, one day becoming Nature’s Gate. Nature’s Gate intends to combine the power of natural ingredients with innovation and science to create affordable, safe, sustainable, and high quality products. The company is committed to using pure, sustainably harvested herbs, fruits and essential oils—without animal testing or animal-derived ingredients—making all of Nature’s Gate products cruelty free and vegan. Where the ingredients come from All the plants used by Nature’s Gate are certified organic, meaning they are farmed without the use of synthetic chemicals or herbicides. Instead, the company employs methods that naturally enhance soil structure, conserve water, and mitigate climate change. The organic ingredients are sourced from Bayliss Ranch, a nearby organic farm in Biggs, California, which minimizes the distance for transportation and the emissions. Additionally, the farm’s water supply is derived from rain and runoff of the adjacent Sierra Nevada snowpack. Aside from their commitment to organic and sustainable farming, Nature's Gate is very water conservative and have partnered with WaterAid to support the use of rainwater. This has helped families and children in Asia and Africa have long term access to safe, clean water.
