I believe it is important to keep good products on you skin. Anything you put on just soaks right in.

I will try out the 365 lotion ad shower gel. I spend a tremendous amount of dough on personal care and from what I have read here, your products might be able to help me lower the over head.

I am amazed that the 365 line is so inexpensive. Thanks for bringing it to us.

I'll check in the store to see if you have one of these- but I would like to see a written description of the "standard" you have created.

I recently read a label of a shampoo with poly-products through. The best part, the main label verbiage "All Natural". Thanks for your efforts.

I really enjoy the 365 body care products. My roommate doesn't think they lather enough, but I am fine with it. I had used Dr. B's soap for years, so I am use to the lather bit, and I am glad to see you are dong a similar soap now!!!

Well this isn't the biggest subject on my mind, but it does have an impact. My girl friend is an avid fan of body care products and we kind of share our monies, so I'll be directing her towards your 365 brand lines!

It cracks me up when I see "Natural" labels on things like J&J skin care, then the ingredient list shows all sorts of names I can't pronounce. Thanks for these steps forward, I hope they apply to other stores and vendors outside of WF.

Great coverage and even better concept on creating this standard.

Thanks for the podcast, it makes me feel good to know you are putting a standard in place which could help with quality control.

I use a lot of Burt's Bees products. I believe these fall into the natural foundation you mention, but if not I will still use them.

I like the idea of someone creating a "Standard" and applaud your work here, but that said, it seems like a conflict of interest that a stakeholder in the field, creates a standard.

Good podcast! thanks for addressing this topic.

365 Brand body care has been a staple of mine for sometime! Thanks for the standard.

I appreciate the effort you are making to bring the standards for body care, up to the other standards in your store!

Why do they have to have scents? I am so allergic to scents that I never go in your room with the shampoos and such because it makes me so sick. Just because it is natural does not make it allergy free. For instance wheat it very natural and wholesome for most people but I am allergic to it as well. I really need special shampoos and soaps but I cannot buy them at your store.

@Liz, I checked with one of our Whole Body staff and they said we do offer fragrance-free body care items that are wheat-free both in our 365 brand and many other brands. Call your local WFM for more details on pricing or availability. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/all/index.php Thanks!

Just had surgery on my arms. For the scars and for the skin what is good? I heard Shea butter was good with thyme. What do you recommend? Look forward in hearing back from you soon. Wishing you a pleasant day! kindest regards, Kathy Ann

Would love to see a line of child and baby care products with an affordable price in your premium body care line. I was at Whole Foods yesterday and bought the spendy stuff, but that is tough on the budget. Something in the range of $5.00 a bottle for shampoo or bubble bath rather than $9.00 a bottle would be helpful. Thanks!
