Pregnant women must choose their skin care products carefully, as harmful chemicals are present in many leading brands and can be toxic not only to the mother, but the baby as well.
Afton, VA (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
At Garden of Eve, a 30 percent sales growth in "Expectantly Lovely" pregnancy safe skin care products bears testimony to Moms’ eco-friendly, toxin-free, wholistic trend. From eco-friendly nursery products to organic diets and pregnancy safe skin care more pregnant women today are making sure that they give themselves and their babies only the best from the very beginning of their time together.
To their credit, moms are making more informed choices than ever before, thanks in part to the growth of social media and “mommy blogs” that educate and raise their awareness on a variety of expectancy issues, including the advent of the eco-friendly pregnancy. Expectantly Lovely face cream can be seen on the 'winter skin rescue' spread in the February/March issue of Fit Pregnancy magazine. During the month of March, Garden of Eve is offering a Special Discount on their Expectantly Lovely products - - follow the directions at: http://www.gardenofeveskincare.com/pregnancy.html
Eve Stahl, founder of Garden of Eve believes that “Expectantly Lovely" is picking up notice by new mothers seeking to protect the health of their unborns and newborns. Moms who do their homework are flocking to the Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep” cosmetic safety database, where cosmetics are evaluated and receive a numeric “hazard score” that reflects the level of toxic ingredients used in the manufacturing process. A score of zero indicates a truly safe product, which is a very rare occurrence. Since Eve's product scores are among the few that are credited with a zero, moms know they can indulge in these pampering products without worrying about whether or not there are substances in them that could harm their unborn children.
Alarmingly, many of the synthetic ingredients found in other skin care brands are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and more than 750 personal care products in the U.S. violate industry safety or cosmetic safety standards that are in effect in other countries. However, the Garden of Eve product line is specially crafted to revitalize skin and is completely void of synthetic ingredients such as parabens and pthalates, which have ties to reproductive problems.
Harsh chemicals in many beauty products are unknowingly absorbed into the skin and can travel through the entire body via the circulatory system. Instead of these, Eve’s products are hand crafted blends of extracts and essential oils of beneficial herbs, flowers, and seeds, all of which are found in nature. Comprised of hand-pressed butters, waxes and exotic oils, her creamy indulgences create a paradise for the skin that leaves it soft, hydrated, and glowing. For expectant mothers, this is a welcome luxury during a time when swelling, acne, blotching and fluctuations in body temperature can make for many uncomfortable and discouraging moments.
