New Local Source for Natural Hair and Body Products











Gabi Day launched Bright Body, a minority woman-owned natural hair and body product company, on October 1. She was inspired to create natural products in order to reduce her exposure to toxins while dealing with chronic illness.

        Bright Body has a variety of products designed for different hair and skin types, including hair cleansers and conditioners, hair styling products, toners, facial and body creams and deodorant. Day uses as many organic ingredients as possible, and every ingredient is given the safest possible rating by the Environmental Working Group. She says, “We firmly believe that you don’t have to give up performance when you go natural!”

        All Bright Body products are 100 percent vegan, cruelty-free and handmade locally in small batches. Bright Body does not include parabens, phthalates, synthetic sulfates, silicones, ethanols, PEGs, DEAs, propylene glycol, synthetic fragrance or color additives in any of its formulas.
