Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

Since its founding in 1984 CRYSTAL™ Deodorant has been a vegan, non-toxic, mineral-based line, focused on providing products that are cruelty-free. MyCHELLE Dermaceuticals®, founded in 2000, is known as the creators of the clean skincare movement, and is a brand dedicated to developing high-end, results-driven, cruelty-free products.

CRYSTAL™ and MyCHELLE® are proud to sponsor The Gentle Barns Gentle 12 program for the month of September.
