“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;
it is because we do not dare that
they are difficult.”

"When I discovered Joseph and Organic Trader I was so excited. I spoke with him and ordered my samples. I really enjoyed talking to him and realized we both shared a similar passion when it came to the environment and felt that it is our responsibility to protect it and all the living beings that inhabit the Earth. That takes me to my samples! I tried them as soon as they arrived and was greatly impressed with the quality. The Lavender scent was very pure. The conditioners were very nourishing and effective.
I have done quite a lot of research in the past 2 years looking for top notch organic products to offer our clients and I have to say these products meet all my expectations. Such as not playing the "organic" %-numbers game and by not including harmful synthetic toxic chemicals. Many companies do just that. Finally I feel confident in a professional product that I can put our name on.”

“I have been using the laundry detergent for everything: clothes, dishes, and hair – it is great stuff and very little goes a very long way.”
Heather Naccarato, USA
“The Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Face Wash, and Day Cream is ALL FANTASTIC! My body isn’t dry, and my face looks, shall I say, younger? I have very long hair that is very straight and since I last cut it all off a year and a half ago to send to Locks of Love my hair has been brittle and itchy. Using your products just 3 times has made my hair do a 180. It feels so soft and is very shiny! Not itchy!
Yes, you have me thinking different!
Soon I will be ordering and I cant wait! Thanks again for who you are and what you stand for!
Peace and Love”

[ Then on trying the hand & body lotion... ] `your product rocks!"

"Anyway, whatever happens of this, I will gracefully accept the changes and continue to believe in what you guys do and your products... See you in TO! peace Betsy"
Denis Pacquette, owner Sidney Hotel
"I was not sure about the shampoo as it did not really lather, however, after about half a bottle, just as Joe said, it started to lather, he explained that the hair holds toxins that are in our body and from other products and that the transition time that it took for me to get a lather was removal of some of these toxins, I am really surprised but I like it!"
Madame Bergeret, teacher
"Oh dear, I sure like that soap."

"I love your soap, where can I get some more?' (after discovering a complementary bar in her room at the bed and breakfast she was staying in)
...my son says he sees rainbows when he uses your soap...a testiment to cleanliness...many thanks.
Ran into two of your employees at a Noah's Natural Foods in Toronto (south Yonge location); while I was perusing the personal hygiene section. One of them confidently recommended Organic Formulations roll–on deodorant, so I gave the 'summer breeze' a try.
It really does work. With a history of Alzheimers in the family, I need to avoid aluminum in deodorant, so have tried a number of brands that don't contain it. However, I've been disappointed with most, in that they don't control odor. Organic Formulations does. In addition the fragrance is sophisticated and light. Bravo folks, you've created a winner!!' Thanks for the recommendation which I in turn pass on, "If you're looking for an alum free deodorant that works, 'Try Organic Formulations'."

"Our two year old has very curly hair and we were beginning to need a little conditioner to keep the tangles out. Once we discovered the Organic Trader shampoo [Earth Spirit™ Organic Baby Shampoo] that is all we needed. It leaves her hair shiny and tangle free."
Celeste Luhtala, Victoria BC
"After years (literally) of searching for a face cream that did not irritate my super sensitive skin, I found this! It moisturises beautifully & does not leave my face feeling itchy or oily. The scent is lovely and light too. I would recommend this product to anyone needing a light-weight moisturiser that is friendly for sensitive faces."
