Review of Kindhearted Women’s Comfort Cream

Kindhearted Woman is a company that makes natural body, hair and baby products. It is a company that I have purchased from for several years and have been very happy with both their products and service. All of their products are cruelty-free and many are organic.

When you first open the box, there is an insert about Tom’s of Maine, which I find slightly annoying.  It seems redundant to have additional information on paper that would then need to be recycled.  As you pull out the tube, you will notice that it is made of aluminum, not the typical plastic.  The company states they do this so the tubes can be recycled, and it helps retain the flavor.
