Organic products have become quite important to me lately. I'm finding that handmade & organic B&B products are much easier on my skin, but still make it feel soft and healthy. Somehow while looking for organic products I found Green Beaver. Just the name of the company got my attention plus the fact that it is Canadian :), so I had to see what it was all about!
The Story of the Green Beaver Company
The company was started by myself, Karen Clark and my husband Alain Ménard. Our son, Joshua gave us the inspiration to develop safe, natural personal care products. Like most babies, Joshua was always drinking the bubbles in his bath water.
With both our science degrees and our years working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, we had well-founded concerns about the chemicals used in personal care products.
When we started researching the subject, we were shocked to discover how many household and personal care products were filled with chemical preservatives, fragrances, dyes, etc.
We found that there were too many chemicals in personal care products for our own well-being. Consequently, Alain and I started formulating our own personal care products without the use of chemicals. That was the beginning of The Green Beaver Company.
At The Green Beaver Company, we believe in Mother Nature to help us take care of ourselves. For centuries, humans have been living with and safely using natural ingredients. That is why we rely on pure natural ingredients when formulating our products.
From our family to yours, we are proud to bring you wholesome, healthy personal care products that are safe and effective for you, your family and our environment.
Now why weren't they around when my boys were small! It would have been so nice to have organic products to bath them in. All their products are certified organic!
They have Shampoo in 6 different scents. What do you need for your Face & lips? They will have it! They carry a wonderful selection of Body Washes & Lotions. They also have 5 different "flavors" of Toothpaste.
My niece LOVES body washes and has a b-day coming soon - will have to look into these! They have Winter Skin Care products, which we definitely need in Canada with all the dry cold air! They have a whole section of Green Beaver Jr. products for kids! My nephew would be thrilled with these. The packaging is wonderful!!
The products can't be purchased through the web site, but they do have links to the stores in each Province where their products are sold and also links to the different On-line Stores that carry their items.
I received one of each Lip Shimmers.
They come in Rose, Mocha, Bordeaux, Amour, Passion and Lustre. These are amazing! They are all certified organic and mint free. The caps have a wonderful little whole in them and I managed to find a key ring to put one on so that I have it will me all the time and can't loose it :) I've tried many many lip balms over the years, and these rank right up there with the best! You don't need to apply more every 15 minutes because it's gone. I will definitely get these again.
