With spring break and warmer weather (hopefully) looming, Earth Mama Organics, Clackamas, Ore., has released a line of Mineral Sunscreen lotions for women, kids, and babies. Made with the most-premium ingredients available and rigorously tested, all of the Mineral Sunscreens are nontoxic and certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Organic Standard. Earth Mama's expertise in formulating products that are safe for the planet's most-vulnerable population--pregnant and breastfeeding women and babies--ensures the sunscreens also are safe for the oceans and the environment.
"What's in the sunscreens is just as important as what's not in them," says company founder and CEO Melinda Olson. "Our goal is to make sure our sunscreens provide optimal protection by formulating them with organic ingredients that have their own inherent SPF value."
For instance, Earth Mama uses organic red raspberry seed oil, which has the highest naturally-occurring SPF value in the plant world, as well as organic colloidal oatmeal, to calm rashy skin. The sunscreens contain no harmful chemicals, such as oxybenzone or octinoxate, artificial fragrance, nano particles, or parabens.
Baby Mineral Sunscreen Lotion (broad spectrum SPF 40) contains shea butter and calendula; Baby Face Mineral Sunscreen (broad spectrum SPF 40 face stick), cocoa butter and aloe; Kids Uber-Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen Lotion (broad spectrum SPF 40), shea butter and colloidal oatmeal; Kids Mineral Sunscreen Lotion (broad spectrum SPF 30), cranberry seed oil and aloe; and a pair of Mineral Sunscreens (broad spectrum SPF 40 and 25), red raspberry seed oil and argan oil.
