Entrepreneurs start businesses for various reasons aside from monetary gain and success. The founder and CEO of the brand Nature’s Spill, Brother Truth, began a company to provide for his family, to help educate and nurture his community. He’s not new to business, entrepreneurship, or community life. The name “Nature’s Spill” comes from their clothing line, ”Real Spill,” which means representing your authentic self. The name Nature’s Spill represents nature, giving in its truest form as a healer for mankind.
The Nature’s Spill company provides natural handmade products such as soaps, toothpaste, hair oils, and herbal teas. They also offer their farm-grown Moringa, along with high-quality Elderberry and Sea Moss. Owning and operating an Urban Farm gives the company an advantage as they can use their freshly grown ingredients, leaving very few of their products to be outsourced.
There has been a growing trend in the black communities of creating and using their own handmade hygiene, wellness, and hair care products. Unfortunately, the knowledge of harmful chemicals used in mainstream products that adversely affect our health is spreading. There are pH adjusters, toxic dyes, and harmful fragrances in our everyday self-care brands. For instance, there is often a chemical called sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, in commercially manufactured soap. This soap-like compound lathers quickly and is most often used in laundry detergents, cleaning products, or toiletries such as shower gel and shampoo. Unfortunately, it is just one of many harmful ingredients approved by the FDA and EPA, although various natural fatty oils will produce the same lathering effect.
The Nature’s Spill company hosts weekly workshops to educate individuals on the importance of using safe and naturally effective hygiene products. Participants can learn to make their own natural products or adequately use the available items for purchase.
In addition, the Nature’s Spill family encourages people to commit to knowledge and growth through branding and community outreach. For more information or to make a purchase, visit them online at www.naturesspill.com.
