No Tox Life was born from the desire to provide effective, vegan body and home care to help you live a cleaner, greener lifestyle. We are a local, family-run business and each product is made using high-quality, effective ingredients.
Our products are made with effective and plant-derived ingredients.
In our body soaps we use botanicals, powders & oils.
Who we are:
Sandee got interested in living a non-toxic lifestyle many decades ago. As a little girl, she experienced a bad reaction to the ingredients in a perfume that left red welts on her skin. As a teenager, she participated in the first annual Earth Day has been excited about living a natural lifestyle ever since.
In 2013, Sandee started experimenting with making soap and other bath & body products, doing hundreds of hours of testing and learning. Soapmaking and cosmetics formulation merged her passions, math, science and art. Initially she gave products as gifts for friends and family, with great feedback.
After heading to her local grocery store one day and reading the “natural” shampoo ingredients, she realized that it was full of harsh, drying detergents that were causing her scalp issues. The idea of No Tox Life was born – helping people switch to a truly non-toxic lifestyle.
In addition to being a certified woman-owned small business, No Tox Life is also a family business.
Sandee’s daughter Callie Milford is the co-founder and creative director of No Tox Life. She designs & formulates new products (along with Sandee), and directs the look of the brand, as well as managing sales to the hundreds of independent grocery stores, zero waste stores and lifestyle stores carrying the line.
We use a range of sustainable, plastic-free packaging material when shipping retail orders. We use paper tape to seal boxes. We use brown recycled cellulose (plant fiber) for padding and recycled paper to wrap delicate items like soaps.
If you see packing peanuts in your order, they are biodegradable and water-soluble (made of cornstarch!).
We re-use and upcycle cardboard boxes when possible that we receive from our suppliers or are donated. Please continue to re-use and donate your packaging if possible to another store that does online shipping to minimize waste and give it another life.

• biodegradable padded paper envelopes
• kraft paper (brown recycled paper) padding
