About DANI Naturals
Our story started with a passion to create all-natural, true-to-the-earth body care products… and today that passion remains strong. Building on the craft that Danielle Easly Nye began in 1996, we continue to create the finest products with the purest ingredients that nature provides. We are inspired daily by the beauty that surrounds us. Not only in nature but in people. As the saying goes, 'it's what is on the inside that counts'… and what you will find at the heart of DANI are good people making great products. Visit our Ingredient Benefits page to see the goodness that goes into each of our products.
Daily doses of natural wonder are part of everyday life from our base in Bend Oregon. Snow-capped peaks at every angle, the serenity of flowing water and sunshine that barely breaks... Mother Nature never fails to inspire! This inspiration is the driving force behind the crux of DANI products. What you will find are 100% vegetable oil bases, pure soy waxes, essential oil blends and many organic ingredients. What you won't find is petroleum, paraben, artificial colors, dyes, animal by-products, or sodium or ammonia laurel/laureth sulfates. Experience DANI and know that we strive to make Mother Nature proud.
Aside from being committed to making the finest products available….our main focus is the experience. And to ensure a positive experience we build and bottle products that we're proud of. We develop the very best products we can by using the highest quality, most natural ingredients that nature provides... all the while doing our best to protect our environment.
Each year, DANI has supported a different organization via 1% for the Planet. This year we're searching for a new way to give back. If you have suggestions, please let us know! We'd love to hear from you, via Facebook or email.

Vetras also has plans to bring back beloved scents and products that were previously discontinued. Vetras is excited to grow the all-natural and organic body care company.
