You Spoke, We Listened

The really good thing about being a small business (some might even say 'tiny'), is that we get every single piece of feedback that comes our way. Good or bad, we hear it. And on the extremely rare occasion we hear something negative, it keeps us up at night! Yes, that's a good thing – because it makes us better.

Our goal from Day One of BOX Naturals has been to provide women with a simple, beautiful natural towelette. In the past two years we've had a handful of emails with the same complaints: 
1. Too 'sudsy'
2. Too sticky
3. Too strongly scented

That's too many 'too's' for us, so we set about making BOX Naturals better. The tricky thing was, so many of our customers loved us as we were, so here's what we did – we're using the same premium ingredients, but in different quantities so our towelettes are lighter in feel (down with stickiness!) and lighter in scent. Yes, we have reformulated and it feels so good!

It took a few months to get things just right, but we feel confident enough to say that BOX Naturals are 'New And Improved!' And we sincerely hope you love the changes. If you'd like to try them without committing to an entire box, for a limited time you can purchase a trial pack in the shop for $1.29 (and free shipping).

Oh and there's one more thing. You may have noticed that we're no longer 'Intimate Wipes' – we're now 'Luxe Towelettes.' This is also a result of customer feedback. Women have been writing in to tell us just how handy they find our individually wrapped towelettes. For removing makeup, cleaning hands, instead of a shower after a yoga class, spot-cleaning silk blouses, wiping down yoga mats... it goes on and on! So yes, hands, faces and special places are just the start of where you can use our better than ever BOX Naturals Luxe Towelettes!

And as for that feedback? Please keep it coming! Good or bad, we are grateful for every. single. email. 

Kloverbox + BOX

What's more fun than getting gifts in the mail?  

What's more fun than getting gifts in the mail?  

October is turning out to be a big month for us. We are very excited to partner with Kloverbox – a subscription box for the woman who is inspired by healthier products.  That's us!  That's YOU!

Kloverbox urges us to "Live Naturally and Organically.  Replace every product you use with a conscious alternative."  We LOVE this motto because that's exactly how we look at attaining a healthier lifestyle.  You might KNOW  that synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde, and parabens are bad for you,  but it's hard to go cold turkey.  However, if you replace just one product at a time with an equally effective and natural product, well, suddenly, it's not hard at all.  

Kloverbox is a wonderful way to sample premium, natural, organic and cruelty-free products.  You get six to eight products from the purest and most sustainable brands in their monthly subscription box. 

Thank you, Kloverbox, for helping us all Live Naturally!

BOX Naturals & Hello Flo

One of the worst things about being a woman is running out to the drugstore in the middle of the work day to pick up some emergency tampons.  Scratch that, the worst thing is coming BACK to the office with a box of tampons thinly veiled in a semi transparent Duane Reade plastic bag.  

Enter Hello Flo, a subscription service for our monthly visitor, known for their hilarious viral videos (here & here).  

BOX Naturals is part of the awesome team of female owned businesses that produce the goodies that make up Hello Flo's latest subscription box - the Postpartum Kit.  Filled with tools to help tackle the things that happen to you AFTER the baby arrives (and things that NO ONE ever tells you about - probably because it's so bad that it is immediately erased from memory).

Meet the women behind Hello Flo's post partum kit in this short, pithy, inspirational Q&A here (including yours truly, Founder of BOX Naturals).

A rose is a rose is a rose...

Drum roll everyone... We've changed our name! From now on, please call us "Coochie Wipey."

Ok, we're kidding.  We went in the other direction and are now BOX Naturals.  It just made more sense since we are expanding in a direction beyond the "intimate" and because, well, gosh darnit, too many of you said the word "intimate" was up there with "moist."

As always, we are dedicated to bringing you products that are all natural and free of synthetic fragrances.  That will never change.
