Safe Lotion for the Skin You're In
Earth Mama Organics Lotion is formulated for the skin of the most fragile people on the planet: pregnant mamas, and their babies. We want their skin safely soft, which is why Earth Mama’s lotions contain organic herbs and oils to moisturize babies of all ages — from top to bottom, and from cheek to shining cheek. Truly clean, you’ll never find petroleum, mineral oil, parabens or artificial fragrance in any of our lotions.
NEW! Eczema Cream
Is your skin (or your baby’s) being an itchy eczema jerk? We formulated this for you, no matter the cause — could be eczema, a random rash, a run-in with a bug that likes to bite, or a recent tousle with poison oak, ivy or sumac. All of it results in angry, irritated skin that’s wildly itchy and frankly, a little crazy-making. We get it. We’ve been there, and we’re so sorry. That’s why we created Earth Mama Eczema Cream: an instant and therapeutic tube of itch relief for eczema-havers (and itch-havers) of all ages — including the pregnant ones.
Stretch Marks and Itchy Skin During Pregnancy
by Pina LoGiudice, ND, LAC
Why is my skin so itchy? Is there anything I can do about it? And what about stretch marks? Are they really preventable?
As part of the miraculous journey of pregnancy, the skin of a mother-to-be will go through many changes. These are a result of increased circulation and hormonal functions designed to help nourish and support the new baby's growth, as well as readying the new mama for 9 months of bodily changes and a healthy delivery. For many women, pregnancy is heralded by circulation increases in the tiny vessels under the skin — often this is welcomed as the 'healthy glow' of pregnancy.
Skin Care Products: How Much Gets In?
by Karin Parramore, LAc, CH
In our increasingly polluted modern world, it is important to do all we can to avoid increasing the toxin load in our bodies. More and more people are choosing to eat organically grown foods and drink clean water, and many people choose to use all natural skin care products as well.
While it is easy to understand why we should choose organically grown foods, just how important is it to avoid synthetic ingredients in body care products? An understanding of the nature of skin, and how ingredients in skin care products might actually penetrate the skin to be delivered into the blood stream, can help us see why, in my opinion, it is imperative we avoid synthetic ingredients at all costs.
