JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It's the first weekend of summer, and when it comes to skin care, many of us automatically think sunscreen. But there is more to summer skin care than that. And if you want to care for your skin, and be eco-friendly, there is a company here in Jacksonville that specializes in organic skin care products.

Natural As I Wanna Be, or NAIWBE C.E.O Sylvia Walker says, "Natural As I Wanna Be is an eco-friendly company specializing in organic skin care products and healthy alternative skin care services for health, wellness & sustainability."

Walker says shea butter is a main ingredient in NAIWBE products, and they use the highest grade, grade A, which is a natural sunblock.

"Regardless if you have dry skin, if you have oily skin or combination skin you still need to moisturize and protect your skin when you're out in the sun," Walker says.

Walker says the NAIWBE product line consists of a cream with a primary base of Certified Premium Grade A Raw Unrefined Shea Butter with a unique balance of organic essential oils; moisturizing sugar scrub, and organic shower gel. The line also includes a men's organic shaving soap made of avocado and cucumber oil for men who prefer chemical free and ideal shaving properties.

"We do not accept animal testing data as proof of an ingredients' safety or effectiveness," Walker says.

Walker says NAIWBE uses safe ingredients, no animal testing, fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic, and no mineral oil. She says all products are made with the highest quality grade ingredients possible.
