We’re partial to companies that truly go out of their way to produce products that are as good for people as they are for the environment. Elemental Herbs is one of those companies, offering skin care products that take advantage of the natural healing properties of plants.
The Elemental Herbs line includes their original All Good Goop, All Good Lips, Herbal Cool, Sunstick, and Sunscreen. Each of the products is carefully formulated with simple but effective ingredients, which are overwhelmingly certified organic. The few non-organic ingredients are necessary components for which there is no organic alternative. For example, here’s the ingredients list for the All Good Goop:
Organic Calendula*, Organic Comfrey*, Organic Lavender*, Organic Plantain* and Organic Yarrow* infused in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil* with Pure Beeswax, Vitamin E and Lavender Essential Oil.
*Certified Organic by USDA/NOP
Those ingredients make All Good Goop a healing balm that can be used for just about any naturally occurring skin condition. In the summer, use it on bug bites and sunburns. In the winter, it’s great for dry, cracked skin. Apply it to a diaper rash any time. Treat scrapes, minor cuts, scars, blisters, and more with it. It should be the official balm of the outdoors and hard work.
All Good Lips is essentially the same as All Good Goop, with the inclusion of essential oils for a more appealing taste when applied to lips. It’s available in the familiar pocket-sized tube form, has an SPF of 12, and comes in original, sweet tangerine, or cool spearmint flavors.
Zinc Sunstick is a close cousin of All Good Lips, includes zinc, and is intended not just for lips, but your nose, ears, or anywhere on your face.
Elemental Herbs Zinc hypo-allergenic Sunscreen is 20% zinc oxide and offers UVA/UVB Broad spectrum protection, is 100% GMO, gluten, paraben, and PABA free, non-nano and vegan. This SP30 sunscreen leaves no white residue, and does an excellent job of moisturizing skin while protecting it from the sun. It’s biodegradable, coral reef safe, and contains 75% certified organic ingredients. The rest of the ingredients are as follows:
Spring Water, Organic Green Tea leaf Extract*, Vegetable Glycerin, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride (coconut derived), Organic Rose Hip Fruit Oil*, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil*, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Glyceryl Stearate (coconut derived), Methylcellulose, Stearic acid, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Organic Shea Butter*, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Less Than 1% Total Formula Preservative Blend (Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylhexyl Glycerin)
*Certified Organic by USDA/NOP
Herbal Cool is a menthol-based spray that provides relief from sore muscles and joints with its warming action. Use it before or after a workout, or to treat soreness any time.
The entire Elemental Herbs product line should appeal to anyone that spends time outdoors, and their Herbal Healing Kits would make a great gift this holiday season, or any time of the year. See them at elementalherbs.com
