Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

I purchased this after reading the reviews from others (thank you everyone -- reviews are VERY helpful when experimenting). I'm glad I did. I just did a test batch of facial scrub using NDA's facial scrub base with apricot, added some walnut husk, banana extract, lemongrass essential oil and grapeseed oil - WOW! My face felt smooth, hydrated, and exfoliated! Scrubs typically leave my face feeling tight and in need for hydration afterwards -- not this time! Didn't even reach for the face cream. This scrub gave my skin a nice peachy glow. I'll be ordering more and trying it in other skin care and hair recipes. Thanks!

I love this product. I added it to my bath tea and it created a softening milky bath that smelled like summer! Can't wait to experiment more...I have a banana witch hazel based toner on my mind.

I wish I had bought more.. I put it in my shampoo and conditioner in between hair cuts and split ends just don't exist. I also added water, pure honey, and oatmeal and made an unbelievably moisturizing face mask. Such a great and versatile product.

I bought this Banana fruit extract out of curiosity. It turned out to be a great decision. I used it in some of my soaps. Soap makers, this powder blends much more easily if you first add a little water and blend it into a paste before adding to a soap mixture. As a stand-alone product, I use this (mixed with water) as a facial mask. It moisturizes and tightens the skin, leaving it soft and youthful. The same mixture, used as a hair mask, leaves the hair soft and shiny - but without all the chemicals found in most conditioners on the market. I can see this is going to be a versatile product. Banana paste is said to be excellent in treating burns and wounds, and is also said to help prevent scar tissue from forming.

Love it! We use banana powder in quite a few formulations from hair care, lotions, scrubs, facials etc. It was wonderful to see this listed as a regularly carried item, one I will not have to "special order" nor pay a little over double the NDA price to obtain. The quality and packaging of the banana extract is excellent. We couldn't be happier with this one. Thanks NDA

I use Banana Powder in my Chocolate Milk Facials, and just received the Banana Powder from New Directions. I am so impressed! First impressed with the price! Next I love the way it is packaged. Not in a plastic bag like the other company I used, but in nice plastic jars. I opened the jar and was very pleased with the fragrance, texture and all around quality of the Banana Powder. So glad I have found this product at this great company! Dorothy, North Carolina
