I was first introduced to Hugo Naturals in 2011 when I attended the Natural Products Expo West for the first time. Hugo and Debra Saavedra, the founders of the company were so warm and inviting when I visited their gorgeous booth. I could tell from the instant that I met them that they absolutely loved their company and products. Debra spent a great deal of time with me going over their products and why they were so proud of the fact that they were the first body care company to remove all traces of gluten from their products (certified by the Celiac Sprue Association, or CSA, the largest celiac support organization in the United States). That really resonated with me. Never before had it occurred to me that I needed to be careful about the lotions, etc. that I used on my gluten intolerant daughter’s skin, but it made so much sense. Our skin is our largest organ…of course it matters what we put on it!!!
Flash forward to this year’s expo and in my opinion, Hugo Naturals once again had the most gorgeous booth in the entire expo. Hugo walked me around the booth and showed me the amazing soap carvings that had been and were being made before my eyes…gorgeous!
I enjoy their products so much that I regularly give them as gifts to my nearest and dearest girlfriends. Hugo’s fizzy bath bombs are out of this world. Besides the fact that I thoroughly enjoy their products, I feel good about purchasing them because their entire product line is vegan, and is also certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Ingredients (LeapingBunny.org). Hugo Naturals has also completely removed soy (and gluten) from their recipes.
