Founded with Water...

Nature's Gate was founded over 30 years ago using nature as our inspiration and guide. Our founders, Leo and Vladimir hand collected rainwater, blended it with natural herbs from their herb shop, and created the very first Rainwater Shampoo. They started giving it away to their friends and customers that came into the herb shop and soon it became a phenomenon all along Venice Beach.
We continue to be inspired by our surroundings and create formulas that combine proven botanical, herbal and floral treatments with modern ingredients and techniques. Nature's Gate offers a wide range of products that address personal care needs from the inside out. Using all-natural herbs and pH-balanced formulas, each product is carefully formulated to deliver the many benefits of each unique botanical blend. All of our products reflect ongoing efforts to preserve the earth's natural resources and develop sustainable sources of clean water.
Asian Pear and Red Tea
Antioxidant Defense Lotion

Our Certified Organic essences are fresh from the field, locally grown in California on land dedicated to growing Nature’s Gate botanical essences. At the family owned Organic farm, each plant receives individual care, ensuring the highest purity and quality. The farm’s water source is derived from the winter rains and snow pack of the Sierra Nevadas.

Baked Apple Spice Soap

Ingredients:Organic soap base (organic coconut oil saponified, organic palm oil saponified, vegetable glycerin, sorbitol from sugar beets), organic cinnamon, organic apple essence, organic chai essence.

This is my absolute favorite soap. After we made it I sat with a piece of it at my desk and just smelled it all day long. I couldn't get enough of it, and still can't. It's the perfect soap to set out for guests during the holidays, or to hoard in your own bathroom and just savor the scent. The perfect blend of apples, cinnamon, a touch of ginger and cardamom. It looks and smells just like a baked apple.

4.5 oz bar




Organic Coconut & Lime Lip Balm
Ingredients: organic sunflower oil, organic cocoa butter, organic beeswax, organic coconut flavor, organic lime flavor, organic lime essential oil, stevia.
Flavored with certified organic extracts and essential oils, not synthetic flavors, this delicious organic lip balm is super sweet and mouth-watering. With a stronger lime flavor and a hint of coconut, our testers say it tastes just like key lime pie.
Organic beeswax seals in moisture, while cocoa butter nourishes lips. Long-lasting, petroleum-free, paraben-free. No bad stuff! This product contains over 95% organic ingredients, and no synthetics!

While we loove this lip balm, we recommend our unscented lip balm if you have sensitive lips.
