Nature’s Gate is born

In 1972, Nature’s Gate was conceived from innovation and natural resources. Two brothers from Venice Beach CA were enlightened to create a shampoo containing only the freshest and cleanest ingredients from mother earth.  They were inspired by the purity of natural rainwater, and therefore used it as their primary ingredient; coupled with natural therapeutic herbs to create the very first Rainwater Herbal Shampoo. The product was an overnight success and Nature’s Gate was born.

At Nature’s Gate, we believe that water is the foundation of life. This gift from mother earth is a vital nutrient for everyday life; however some people around the globe don’t have access to clean water.  In recognition of the importance of rainwater to our samedayessay heritage and the desire to give back to our communities, Nature’s Gate has been a proud partner with WaterAid since 2008. Nature’s Gate supports Water Aid’s mission to help support the development of sustainable uses for rainwater and help communities, families and children in Africa, Asia, Central and South America to obtain long term access to safe, clean water.

The lack of access to clean water is one of the largest public health issues of our time. The diseases spread by unsafe water undermine the health, education and livelihoods of millions of people, condemning them to live in poverty. Below are some facts about the global water crises. Remember awareness is the beginning of change.
