In April we celebrate earth awareness, and come together to love our planet a little bit more. Throughout the month, we are amazed to see the impact a small amount of extra care can have for our favorite planet (we love it so much, we named our company after it!). Heading into May, we don’t have to leave behind the small steps we take everyday towards a greener future. Here are a few that you can be part of just by using Earth Science products.

No Microbeads – Not Now, Not Ever
Instead of plastic microbeads or other environmental contaminants, our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub has always relied on nature. With a special blend of polished crushed walnut powder, glowing skin has never and will never come at the expense of our rivers, streams and waterways.

Locals Only – California-based Business
Dreamed, designed, and made in California, from start to finish, our products are true California natives. By using locally sourced suppliers and processes, we save our planet from the added pollution that long transport and shipping distances incur.

Packed With Love – Eco-Peanuts For Good
We use eco-friendly, biodegradable, packing materials to send products your way. With our special peanuts made from cornstarch in every box, we can keep our earth looking as good as you do day in and day out. Throw them in your garden or composter and watch them disappear.

You recycle when we recycle – up to 80% post-consumer packaging
Every box, bottle and tube at Earth Science Naturals is recyclable or made from recycled materials. Keeping extra paper and plastic out of our landfills is easy when you use our products.

We here at Earth Science Naturals love our products! We are always talking about them, writing about them and gathering feedback from our customers and colleagues. We can say a lot of fantastic things about our favorites, but thought we would share the love by featuring a couple of our favorite blog mentions:

Our Olive & Avocado Deep Conditioning Hair Masque is one of our most popular products – it’s always on our top sellers list and when we’re out visiting stores, customers comment to us how they can’t get enough masque. Amber shared her experience and we couldn’t be happier: “I tried the Earth Science Olive & Avocado Hair Masque and my hair felt instantly smoother and healthier… When I got up in the morning my hair was smoother and shinier than it has been in years.”

Earth Science Review

 

 

 

Cori over at Well Beauty Blog wrote a descriptive and detailed review of one of our younger products, our Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion. She concluded her post with an awesome recap of this effective product: “Overall, Earth Science’s Multi-Therapy Ceramide Health Skin Lotion is awesome. It’s light but moisturizing. Since it’s fragrance free and full of vitamins and anti-inflammatories, it’s great for my sensitive skin. And, since it sinks in so fast I can use it anytime and even in the hot summer.” We’re glad to hear it, Cori!

Our Cellagen Renewal Serum is designed to smooth and firm skin, and it sounds like it’s doing it’s job according to Kim: “You see it says on the box that you just need to place a few drops on fingertips and smooth into wrinkled areas or anywhere you need to “plump skin”What I didn’t expect was it to really work…I guess I am a bit jaded at times when it comes to skin care. Well guess what? It really did work! And yeah you bet I am still using it too!! I am over 50 so anything to help me not look 50 I’m game!”

Thank YOU to all our fans!

PrintWe all want effective skincare products that deliver the results that they promise. But for some of us, choosing products that are safe and healthy is of equal importance. Earth Science Naturals prides itself on creating clean products made from the finest natural ingredients and free of ingredients like parabens, artificial colors and artificial fragrances.

In fact, Earth Sciences Naturals’ formulas are so clean that several products have recently been approved as Premium Body Care products at Whole Foods Market (with more to come), which strives to provide its customers with truth in labeling, safer, more natural skincare products. It’s not just a nice label, though – in order to be approved as part of Whole Foods’ premium care offerings, products must meet stringent standards to ensure the highest quality.

Whole Foods’ standards cover four main areas:

1)     Results — Products that earn the premium care label must contain effective ingredients that function well and provide genuine results.

2)     Source — To guarantee that products are truly natural, they must also meet strict standards that ensure their ingredients are sourced as closely to nature as possible and minimally processed afterward.

3)     Environmental Impact — Whole Foods also considers the impact that personal care products have on the environment since many are washed down the drain where they can then enter our ground and surface waters. To meet the environmental impact standard, products must have little negative effect on the environment during both the manufacturing process and when they are released into the environment during use.

4)     Safety — Whole Foods pays particular concern to how safe the ingredients that products contain are for our bodies. As such, the products must have accurate ingredient lists; have little contamination risk; be less likely to cause allergic reactions and irritations; and have established safety data. This means that premium body care products don’t contain parabens, and only contain mild preservatives and natural fragrances.

Clearly, meeting these standards is no small feat and definitely attests to a product’s clean formula.  That’s why Earth Science Naturals is so proud of the first of many products approved as Whole Foods Premium Body Care products.  The five include the Azulene Eye Cream, Active Age Defense i-Cream, Active Age Defense Cellagen, Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion, and Purfection Hand Cream. Knowing what stringent criteria these products meet, you can absolutely feel good about incorporating them in your personal care routine.

VitaminE Stock FBWhen it comes to skincare products, choosing ingredients that can multitask is a surefire way to get more bang for your buck. Meet vitamin E, a powerhouse antioxidant that has long been used to soothe and heal the skin.

Because it provides a host of benefits that nearly any type of skin can enjoy, it is included in many of Earth Science Naturals’ products. You might have to scan the ingredient lists and look for a few different names, though, since vitamin E comes in several forms, including tocopherol, tochopheryl acetate, and tocopheryl linoleate.

As an antioxidant, vitamin E helps combat damage from free radicals like pollution, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also an ideal ingredient that can help soothe dry skin, boosting the moisture content and softening for improved elasticity. Vitamin E may also have anti-inflammatory properties that allow it to heal the skin. It can even absorb some UV rays to provide slight sun protection.

Is that multitasking or what?

If you’re interested in introducing this powerful antioxidant into your skincare routine, you can find many options in the Earth Science Naturals’ line. The A-D-E Creamy Cleanser, Apricot Night Cream, Hydrating Day Cream, and Nighttime Recovery Cream are just a few of the great products that allow you to incorporate Vitamin E in your skincare regime.

glutenfree symbol FBWe receive a lot of inquiries about gluten in our products.  This prompted us to ask the question, does gluten in personal care products pose a problem to those with a gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease?  Read on to find out.

Current scientific research considers products formulated with gluten safe for use by those with Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity.  Michael F. Picco, M.D, a gastroenterologist with the Mayo Clinic asserts, “Gluten-containing skin care products and cosmetics aren’t a problem unless you accidentally swallow them. For this reason, avoid using such products on your lips or around your mouth.” He goes on to say that even a skin reaction to gluten (dermatitis herpetiformis or DH) would be caused by the ingestion of gluten, not by the topical use. (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/celiac-disease/AN01623)

Dr. Alessio Fasano, Medical Director of the Center for Celiac Research, University of Maryland, has found that “…the application of gluten containing products to the skin should not be a problem, unless you have skin lesions that allow gluten to be absorbed systemically in large quantities.” (http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/newsletter/personal-care-products-do-you-need-to-worry-about-gluten/)

Notwithstanding these findings from the medical community, there appear to be gluten sensitive people who say they are reacting to gluten in topical application. (http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/GlutenFreePersonalCareProducts/a/Gluten- In-Shampoo.htm).

It appears from the scientific evidence that most gluten sensitive consumers do not need to be concerned about gluten in personal care products, but some might still want to exercise caution.  For this reason, we will provide specific information on our website calling out “gluten-free” products for those who wish to avoid them.  http://earthsciencenaturals.com/index.php?1&p=view_category&search_text=gluten-free&sort_by=price%20DESC
