organic skin care

Many moms are starting to understand the importance of buying organic foods for our families. But what about all the products we use on our bodies? This might be the next logical step for you, because our skin is actually absorbing all those toxins hidden in the topical products. To make it easier for you to begin, We’ve found four great organic skincare companies below to explore:

Earth Mama Angel is a company focusing on moms and babies. USDA approved for organic pregnancy, nursing, postpartum, baby care and even baby loss products, they are proud to say they are offering all non-toxic and natural products. In fact, their products were chosen by Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio as the first step in their “greening process” around 2011. For years, MVH researched environmental toxicants and the health risks they pose to newborns and mothers. Specifically, they use Earth Mama’s Natural Non-Scents Hand to Toe Wash and Angel Baby Oil on all newborns including those in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Every Earth Mama product rates a ZERO for toxins on the Skin Deep database, and Mama’s Promise® is to offer only safe, pure, natural products that work. You can find their products here.
