Let’s think about your skincare and beauty routines for a minute. How many products do you use? From face wash to nail polish and everything in between, most of us have at least a dozen—if not more—products that we use every single day.
By now, it’s no secret that many of those products contain ingredients that can be toxic to your skin and body. If you’ve considered making the switch to all-natural skin care and beauty products, you know it can be overwhelming at first! Fortunately, Nashville has plenty of locally owned businesses that focus on natural and organic beauty. Whether you need to ask questions about natural skincare or you just want to treat yourself to a guilt-free pedicure, check out these local, natural beauty businesses in the Music City.

Located inside a historic house in Germantown (complete with a pink door!), Poppy & Monroe was one of the first salons in Nashville to offer non-toxic, waterless manicures. But that’s not all they offer! With a team of more than ten experienced practitioners, Poppy & Monroe gives you the best in natural nail services, skincare, sugaring, brow and eyelash enhancements and professional makeup artistry. They’re committed to using natural and environmentally friendly products, including Aila, a line of non-toxic nail polish that’s based right here in Nashville.
