An energetic new beginning
As the New Year symbolizes a clean slate and a fresh start, we at Bushbaby are excited to introduce our new Clean Slate Club: a membership that allows us to help fuel an energetic new beginning for you and your family through fun gifts and discounts on clean body care and snacks at Bushbaby. There are new possibilities on the horizon and we want to help position our Bushbaby tribe to approach these possibilities mindfully, ethically and in conscious balance with our health and the earth.
January invites us all to make a clean break with the past and set a declaration – for ourselves and our families – that the old way is over. In raising a new generation to love the outdoors and respect nature, we hope you will join us in setting a mutual intention for 2018 to respect nature and our environment with the choices we make…starting with what we put in, on and around our bodies.
With this intention in mind, we are honored to invite you to join our Clean Slate Club.
The Club is free to join (sign up in the store or with the form below), and members receive a special introductory gift bag, free samples throughout the year, access to Bushbaby’s exclusive BeautyCounter membership, and a 15% club discount on all Erbaviva and BeautyCounter family body care products as well as 15% off all Thrive Life snackies.
Once you sign up (in-store or online), you will be able to enjoy very nice discounts on our top handpicked brands of family body care and snack products. We are fully invested in these three brands because of their meticulous ingredient selection processes, ethical production and business practices, and fully conscious impact on the earth and its people.
Read on to meet these wonderful brands.
Part of daily self-care is being mindful about what we put in and on our bodies.
In addition to maintaining a balanced diet of nutrients and drinking plenty of water, we have to be aware of what products we apply onto our skin. Skin care products and cosmetics can contain toxic chemicals that can be absorbed by the skin. We should consciously choose natural and organic products to consume and to use.
Those living the organic life have experienced the human body's amazing ability to heal itself. When we utilize the power of nature, the body works its own magic and we simply inspire positive results.
Erbaviva consistently implements sustainable and environmentally responsible principles to create healthy products that better the lives of people while working harmoniously with nature.
We source our ingredients meticulously with great consideration of how they are are grown and harvested. From the particular region, to the particular part of the plant, from the health of the soil, to the transparency of the supplier, we know it ALL matters. Each product is crafted with pure living herbs, essential oils and botanicals, sourced near and far, and to the highest standards of organic certification, safety, efficacy and sustainability.
It all starts with pure, rich soil, untouched by chemicals. Then add organic, biodiverse non-GMO seeds. Organic farming protects soil, conserves water, and safeguard wildlife.
Organic crops are grown and harvested without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic chemicals that break down plant’s natural defense and compromise human health.
Each botanical extract, essential oil and living herb is produced through clean, green chemistry ensuring pristine quality, superior aromas and the highest levels of therapeutic efficacy.
Erbaviva creates high quality organic products by infusing organic butters, oils and emollients with pure living herbs, essential oils and extracts. 100% chemical free and never tested on animals we practice sustainability, and social responsibility from “farm to bottle."
Beautycounter's Mission: To get safer products into the hands of everyone.
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry.
What’s worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day, and to make their own judgments about safety.
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE.
At Beautycounter, we’re committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law: We’ve banned the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through our "Never List”—all while ensuring our products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.
IT’S NOT EASY WORK, BUT IT’S WELL WORTH IT.
Making safer products starts with safer ingredients. Beautycounter’s five-step Ingredient Selection Process truly sets them apart.
Step 1: Ban Intentionally
The Never List: 1,500 questionable or harmful ingredients we do not use, no matter what (including nearly 1,400 cosmetic ingredients banned in the European Union).
Step 2: Screen Rigorously.
Using the best available data, we screen every potential ingredient, considering it both individually and within a mixture of chemicals, as it would be in a final product. After all, if a company removes one toxic chemical and replaces it with another, nothing has been done to actually protect our health.
Step 3: Learn Constantly.
We regularly review emerging data on ingredients and even commission our own studies. The absence of data does not mean that a chemical is safe.
Step 4: Source Responsibly:
- Choose the best available ingredient options.
- Work to source ingredients from non-GMO, sustainable sources, many of which are organic. Over 80% of our ingredients are natural or plant-derived.
- Ask for certificates of purity, and test for heavy metal contamination.
- Work to manufacture all products in the U.S.
- Do not test products or ingredients on animals.
Step 5: Share Transparently.
Every ingredient we use is shared on our product packaging, online, and in EWG’s Skin Deep database. We share the source of all ingredients.
"Helping families starts with a healthy meal, but our passion for helping people stretches past the dinner table."
We send 5% of our profits to developing countries, which means your dinner is helping build schools, empower women, and build communities around the world.
It depends on what’s important to you. If you’re a health nut, it’s the fresh taste, high quality standards, and natural health of our foods. If you’re looking to get a quick, nutritious, and tasty meal on the table it’s the convenience and versatility we offer.
No matter what part of mealtime’s most important to you, THRIVE has something great to offer.
It’s obvious that eating THRIVE is better for you than chowing down on processed or fast food. But have you thought about how THRIVE stacks up against the grocery store? THRIVE foods typically keep their fresh taste and nutrients better than their produce aisle counterparts, and they aren’t full of harmful additives and preservatives. You can rest easy knowing that THRIVE is the healthy choice for your family.
When you pick up a can of food at the store, do you know where it comes from, or what standards of quality it was held to? With THRIVE, you can. We painstakingly pick the very best products out there so you don’t have to. You can be confident that every can contains only foods with the flavor, taste, color, and appearance that will create the best possible eating experience.
