Our Story

Our Mission
We believe it is important and necessary to get back to the basics of consuming and using healthy, plant based products. Most hair, body and skin care products contain chemicals that are not healthy and don't really improve the quality or health of your hair, body or skin. In an age of quick, easy, and cheap take a break and say hello to quality, healthy and affordable.  

In addition to our concern about healthy hair and skin care products we have always felt inspired to improve and impact our community through entrepreneurship. We think it is vital to invest in education/innovation and to encourage and inspire young people to reach their highest potential. Our vision is to donate resources to deserving students with a dream and passion for creating a better world.


Darrell & Mary, 
Owners & Operators
We are Mary and Darrell Johnson, husband and wife and business partners. As Chicago natives (born and raised) we are excited to invite you into our world of healthy hair, body and skin care products. In January of 2017, Hello to Natural LLC was born. After thinking, planning and researching we decided to create a company that we could be proud of and that could benefit people.
Darrell and I both come from big families and enjoy spending time with them. We're avid readers, music creators, nature enthusiasts, we love cooking together and we enjoy fine dining. We invite you to go on this journey with us and try our products or support our cause to help educate and invest in the children of tomorrow! Either way, thanks for visiting our site and be sure to tell your friends and family about us!
