I’ve always been awed by the human body. Its ability to maintain equilibrium and balance is truly remarkable. Of the body’s countless processes, menstruation is the one I’m most moved by. I remember being totally flabbergasted as a child learning about the process of getting my period. I’m going to bleed out of my vagina? No way. Chances are you’ve gotten past the utter shock of menstruation, but perhaps don’t totally understand its nuances.Read More›
If you’ve been following S.W. for a while, you probably know that we do everything for a reason. We use fewer ingredients because it allows us to use better sources for gentler, more effective skincare. We use glass bottles not just because they look pretty, but also because glass is 100% recyclable. Our main line is Certified USDA Organic because it’s important that our ingredients are grown and processed under strict codes with absolutely no genetically modified organisms.Read More›
Hi. First things first, let’s start this whole thing off by making an outrageous (but totally true) claim: this is going to be the easiest soup you’ve ever made in your life. There, I said it. I can’t take it back now and suddenly I’m feeling a little nervous about it, but I’m sticking to it. Easy. Peasy.

Hi! In case you weren’t already aware because the marketing world hasn’t been beating it into your head for the last two and a half months (you know, starting a week before Christmas), tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!

When we first released our three-ingredient, non-foaming Cleanser many moons ago, the skincare world was in a bit of a different place. Brands like Clearasil dominated the face wash category with their “blackhead-busting,” detergent-filled offerings; the idea that a good face wash can – and should – produce no foam was virtually unheard of. Now it’s 2017. Micellar face washes are en vogue (something we’ve discussed at length) and it’s no longer unthinkable to wash your face with something that doesn’t leave you feeling like you just assaulted it with hospital-grade disinfecting soap. In fact, more and more of you understand that a good cleanser should be as gentle as it is effective.Read More›
Trying to get pregnant for the first time is a beautiful thing. It’s also a disorienting, emotional, and downright confusing process. You’re embracing learning-as-you-go, gleaning information from wherever you can, and generally hoping you’re doing the “right thing” – because, trust me, you’ll be bombarded with a lot of conflicting information. (Lift your legs up in the air after sex? Give up chocolate? Recite fertilization-affirming mantras post-coitus? Yep, I’ve heard it all…)Read More›
