Half of being beautiful, if not more, is being healthy. Vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty products like cosmetics and perfume can only take you so far; having healthy and beautiful skin and hair is just as important, if not more so. Keeping the skin beautiful, and healing it when facing maladies such as sunburns and bug bites, is part of what Elemental Herbs does best. Where many products of this type incorporate harsh ingredients like petroleum. Elemental Herbs makes products that have the desired effects of petroleum-based products, such as locking in moisture, without the negative side-effects. Further, their ingredients are certified organic, from their herbs to essential oils, and they grow many of their ingredients on their own organic farm. They also use recycled packaging and shipping materials.
Elemental Herbs has a strong commitment to ensuring that their vegetarian and cruelty-free products are safe in every possible way. From their firm commitment to not use Genetically Modified Organisms, or not using suppliers who use them, to their certified organic ingredients, they ensure that their products are not harmful for your skin. They’ve even started their own organic farm, from which they harvest ingredients for their products. Elemental Herb’s commitment to being cruelty-free includes their signing the campaign for cruelty free cosmetics pledge, and being members of PETA and the Leaping Bunny program.
Elemental Herb’s first and most popular product is “All Good Goop.” All Good Goop is a salve that can be used in place of petroleum jelly for many uses. Instead of crude oil byproducts, they use healing and natural ingredients such as organic comfrey, organic calendula, organic extra virgin olive oil and organic lavender. The aromatic balm can help to heal ailments such as cuts, sunburns, insect bites, dry skin and general dermatitis, diaper rash, dry lips, cracked heals and much more.
Elemental Herbs takes great care to not include the common harmful ingredients in many sunscreen products in their own products with sun protection, such as oxybenzone. In fact, they took the undesirable ingredient out of their products that were previously SPF15, which lowered them to an SPF rating of 12. Included in this is their widely popular chapstick, All Good Lips, which includes many of the healing ingredients of All Good Goop. They offer their organic chapsticks in tangerine and spearmint scents, both made with natural essential oil.
