We're SunLeaf Naturals
Our Customers' Words
We’re SunLeaf Naturals – a locally owned company dedicated to making fresh, plant-based products for the home. We challenge conventional home products with innovative forms and environmentally friendly ingredients that people love to use everyday.
I’ve spent my career developing products for national companies within the personal care and home fragrance industry. During this time, I witnessed incredible waste, misleading labeling, and vast amounts of synthetics, petrochemicals and fillers going into our environment and the bodies of consumers. In 2007, I decided to create a fresh line of truly natural products and a company in harmony with my values. With much help from family and friends this has become a reality. We hope you enjoy SunLeaf Naturals!
NATURAL Pure plant derived ingredients, beeswax and 100% essential oil scents.
CLEAN Biodegradable and environmentally friendly - absolutely no synthetics, no preservatives and no petrochemicals.
GREEN Minimal and compostable packaging – no plastic bottles.
PURE JOY Fresh, uplifting scents for a sunny outlook on life.
Our Customers' Words
I love Sunleaf Naturals soaps! My search has ended!
"Thank you so much for making such fantastic soaps! Throughout my travels I’m always looking for small, value-driven companies that produce natural, responsible products for local markets. I was lucky enough to be introduced to Sunleaf Naturals in Madison, WI and it has now become the only soap I want to use. All of the scents are so refreshing and clean, and you can literally feel the purity with each use. It’s a relief to know that I (and my family) can start each day without the synthetics and chemicals all too commonly found in conventional soaps and cosmetics. Add to this the personal, responsive service provided by Teresa and Doug, and I’m left wondering how I ever lived without Sunleaf Naturals. I can’t wait to try the diffusers, candle and balms! Give Sunleaf Naturals a try: you'll love it!"
- Justin, from Bermuda
I'm hooked for life!
"I just wanted to send you guys an email to let you know how GREAT your product is. I'm a member at the Wedge Co-op in Minneapolis and I've tested and tried many of the local handmade soaps. I cannot tell you how much better your soap is then any other I've tried. The fact that it can be applied directly to my hair is amazing and it lathered up quicker and better than any shampoo I've ever used. Frankly, I was shocked. I use the Cedar Mint scent and it's just great, I love how I can feel the essential oils when I breathe in. I'm hooked for life, keep up the great work!"
What a pleasure...
"I am writing to tell you a story about your products and how wonderful they are. I am a real estate agent working in the western suburbs of Minnesota. I had a home listed that recently sold, a very lovely home. After the purchase agreement had been negotiated, inspections completed, etc., I received a phone call from the agent that had represented the buyer in the transaction, now mind you the property had not closed yet. He called to ask me a “huge favor” for the buyer moving here from Texas.
All the buyer wanted to know, of all the things a buyer moving thousands of miles away from home was, where did the owner get the wonderful scents throughout the house, and they wanted to make sure they too could find where to buy them. What a pleasure to let them know they are widely available and made right here in Minnesota!
Your products made a huge difference in the incredibly difficult real estate market. I will be telling every seller I have to use your diffusers at a minimum. They will be in all my listing packages!"
- Beth, Realtor
Simple, pure ingredients
"It's a pleasure doing business with SunLeaf Naturals. The people behind the products are beautiful and thoughtful and they shine through the entire line. Each product is well thought out and holds true to the company's philosophy of simple, pure ingredients blended to work. They also strive to use minimal packaging. I tell customers over and over again, this is a local product line anyone can feel really great supporting. We really love SunLeaf Naturals!”
I love! Love! LOVE this product!
“I just love the bath/body soaps - after my shower the whole bathroom smells wonderful. The soaps lather beautifully and leave my skin and hair clean - with nothing left behind. This soap seems to have cured my need for skin moisturizers - I love! Love! LOVE! this product. All the scents are great, but my favorites are the Clary Sage Lavender and the Orange Ginger. Who'd a' thought!
The dish soap is awesome also - I have used a conventional product that you lather the cloth with to wash the dishes because it concentrates the soap where you need it - in the dish rag. Your dish soap cleans just as well and now I can do my dishes with a natural soap that doesn't have an army of chemicals in it. THANKS! I’m looking forward to more products!”
- Linda Landsman of Lakewinds Natural Foods, Chanhassen, Minnesota
"With long hair, I was doubting the shampoo bar would work. With this wonderful scent emanating from the bar, I rubbed it on my head. It lathered! Rinsing, I had that squeaky-clean kind of feeling. Nice. After showering, I let it dry naturally, because that’s where I can really tell how my hair feels. It looked and felt clean, healthy, and wavy not frizzy. Very impressive."
Jody Russell, The Fifty Mile Diet
Wow – I love the smell
“Wow – I love the smell of this soap for showering! It lathers up nice for shampoo and rinses clean. It’s so easy to take a shower at home or at the gym, I only need this bar.”
- Tom from Northfield, Minnesota
Headaches from fragrances – but not yours
“I’ve always been sensitive and got headaches from fragrances – but not yours. Your candles really look nice and burn beautifully. We tried the reed diffuser and I didn’t get a headache – I’m a fan of the essential oil instead of perfume."
- Beth from Cottagewood, Minnesota
Really works well
“The kitchen soap smells wonderful and really works well for cleaning the dishes. I’ve been buying the same brand for close to 40 years, so this is pretty good to make a switch!”
- Bev from Northfield, Minnesota
Fresh scent & cleaning power
“The kitchen dish soap on the wooden stick is excellent – a fresh, lovely scent with real cleaning power. I love the simplicity of my soap next to my sink. The Shampoo & Body soap is great too - It’s simplified our bath time routine because one bar works for the whole family!”
- Julie from Victoria, Minnesota
Free of clutter
“I really like the fact my shower is free of bottles and clutter – just a bar of soap! Not to mention, it really lathers so nicely as shampoo.”
- Martha from St. Paul, Minnesota
Color lasts twice as long
"I just want to take a moment to tell you what a wonderful product your shampoo and body wash is. I use it as a shampoo only and have found that my hair coloring lasts twice as long as it used to. I cut my bar into thirds and use it that way. It lasts for months!"
- Charles Schons Minnetonka, MN
Love your product
"I love the ginger one and the lavender but I also want to try the cinnamon one. I don't know if you were the person who gave me samples of this product at Valley Co-op a week or so ago but I am so glad I tried it. I LOVE IT. My skin is softer and it's great on my hair. Also, I want to tell you that the bottoms of my feet have always been very rough and dry. All of that is gone now!! That is fabulous!"
Local, natural, gentle...
"I love the soaps from SunLeaf Naturals. They fit all the criteria of a perfect product - they're local, natural, gentle, great-smelling, and work really well! They are perfect as gifts, for traveling, and for everyday use as your soap and shampoo."
Lauren Bartel, Wellness Manager
In love with your fine quality candles and diffusers
“Ooooo, I am in love with your fine quality candles and diffusers. The scents are spectacular and the presentation is pristine. My co-workers were flocking over to see where the yummy smells were coming from! It’s a tough job! I think this is the beginnings of a beautiful relationship.”
Crystel Curley, Mercantile Buyer
WOW, what a candle!
“Teresa, I just want to say how much I am enjoying a SunLeaf Naturals candle that I recently picked up on a trip to Minneapolis. My 16 year old convinced me to drive her and three of her friends down to the Britney Spears concert two weeks ago from our home here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and while we were there I had the privilege of shopping at the Wedge natural food co-op. Where I happened to notice one of your candles. I am not generally a candle buyer, but this candle was screaming out to me. Especially when I read clarysage on it, I was absolutely intrigued, and quickly knew it was crossing the border with me. And trust me, your candle has found a wonderful home here!! To begin with, your candle is more than just a candle, it's an experience!!! At the end of the day, I can't wait to light it, and wait for the magic to happen. When I light it, usually at night, I am transformed. It really is an event. The clarysage is remarkably light and magical, seeming to have a wonderful impact on my clarity of thought and understanding. If a day goes by and I haven't had my candle 'experience' I miss it. Yesterday, on Easter morning, your candle accompanied my eldest daughter and I while we were lying in bed reading and talking and nibbling organic chocolate. Thank you so much, and thank you to all the members of your staff, for making such an amazing candle; for creating something with such amazing integrity which, I can assure you, is deeply appreciated this side of the border!! Thank you so much from a now newly-committed Canadian candle buyer!!”
- Sincerely, Judith Dickson
My absolute favorite!
"Your shampoo body bar is still my absolute favorite! I sell it all the time from great personal experience!!"
- Naomi Lundberg, HBC Valley Natural Foods
As soon as I tried it I was won over
"My wife recently purchased some of your shampoo and body soap bars. At first I was skeptical having never seen a shampoo in a bar but as soon as I tried it I was won over. It is so simple and wonderful and works great most importantly. Some of the things I love about it are that there are no containers involved, it is made with natural ingredients, It serves multiple purposes in one product, and another wonderful bonus is that you can travel with it without worrying about container sizes or what have you. I have rambled long enough. Thank you very much we love your product."
- Peace, Yuuki Metreaud
