Intelligent Nutrients opened their first store in NYC this month at One Fifth Avenue on the corner of 5th Ave and 8th Street near Washington Square Park. As some of you know I’ve been on a ‘clean beauty’ kick and it doesn’t get any safer than Intelligent Nutrients. Founded by “the father of Safe Cosmetics” Horst Rechelbacher, who was also the founder of Aveda, they offer an extensive range of USDA Certified Organic Hair and Body Products. Today the company is run by his wife Kiran Stordalen and daughter Nicole Rechelbacher. (I’m a little obsessed with his daughter and may or may not bought similar aviator glasses after meeting her).
Up until now I’ve been getting my Intelligent Nutrients fix at ABC Carpet & Home Apothecary, which carries a limited line. Walking into the store was eye-opening on just how vast the collection is. They also offer FaceLove Fitness sessions — don’t worry, you don’t do any of the working out. You basically lean back in a chair (30 – 45min sessions available), while your instructor gives you the most amazing face massage of your life. Incorporating muscle movement-skin firming massage and interval face muscle resistance training to wake up your skin, you walk out so refreshed.
