Nature's Cure is an American health and beauty products company founded in 1994 by Amy Baker, who learned about homeopathic treatments while living in Germany.[1][2] Their first products were the two-part acne systems, which became available in 1995. Since then, their catalog of products has expanded to offer a greater variety of health and beauty products and treatments.[3] Their products use natural ingredients in conjunction with over-the-counter medications and are not tested on animals.

In 2001, the company made the Inc. 500 list[4] and the San Francisco Business Times' "Top 150 fastest-growing privately held companies in the San Francisco Bay Area."[5]

Acne products[edit]

Nature’s Cure’s 2-Part acne preparations consist of homeopathic tablets and a facial cream.[6] The externally applied Benzoyl Peroxide vanishing cream kills the bacteria that causes acne[7] and also contains aloe and allantoin to prevent the skin from over-drying.[8] Nature’s Cure has specific formulations of the 2-Part Acne Treatments that are targeted to both males and females.[9]
Nature’s Cure's other acne products include Body Acne Treatment Spray, the Anti-Acne Papaya Skin-Care System, and the Anti-Acne Face & Body Shower Kit.[10][11][12]

Feminine Care[edit]

Nature's Cure has a line of over-the-counter feminine care products for yeast infections (candidiasis) including 1-Day and 3-Day yeast infection treatment packs, which each come with vaginal anti-fungal treatment (containing tioconazole or miconazole nitrate, respectively) and homeopathic tablets, as well as yeast control capsules.[13] Like the 2-Part Acne Treatments, Nature’s Cure yeast infection products rely on the Law of Similars, one of the main principles of homeopathy.[14]

Podcasts[edit]

Nature’s Cure sponsors and produces a podcast on teen health issues titled: "STR8 Up – Health Talk for Teens."[15] Hosted by Robin Miller, MD,[16] the podcasts have covered topics such as depression, body piercing, second hand smoke, mono (mononucleosis), stress, and obesity.
