Balanced Guru

As a certified organic, 100% natural, cruelty-free line of holistic aromatherapy skin, hair, and body care, Balanced Guru is proud to announce the launch of one of the first certified organic powder face masks on the market: Balaned Guru's Spiced Up Berries Antioxidant Facial Masque. Activated by mixing with water, honey, greek yogurt or toner, create healthier, younger looking skin cells with this powder mask using Acai and Acerola Berries, Clove, Cinnamon, Oatmeal & Vitamin C for youthful, blemish-free and even toned skin. The Acerola Cherry packs more milligrams of Vitamin C than an orange, overflowing with collagen-building and acne fighting properties. 

Fact: While young skin is full of Vitamin C, skin naturally loses this nutrient over time resulting in pre-mature signs of aging. Blemishes are also caused by a lack of Vitamin C in your skin.

All of Balanced Guru products are made with certified organic food-graded ingredients meaning all of their ingredients are safe enough to eat and extremely rich in nutrients, anti-oxidants and vitamins that will make you see and feel the physical benefits of using them on your skin. Colorful berries are a great way to feed skin with antioxidants, while clove and cinnamon are also loaded with antioxidants to fight free radicals like UV rays, pollution, and other lifestyle factors that prematurely age skin. Vitamin C will give this masque an extra boost to also help brighten your complexion.

Retail size: 4oz, $45 via Balanced Guru.

Directions: A single application will consist of about 1/6 oz of powder, adding your activator of choice (water, honey, greek yogurt or toner) based on the consistency you wish to achieve. The 4 oz jar has about 24 applications (enough for a 6 month supply used once weekly). Each jar comes with a spoon to scoop out the product and a spatula to help mix and apply. A brush is the preferred way to smooth over skin.

Produced and printed in a zero waste facility in Denver, CO, the new keepsake gift box design was inspired by an original illustration from Colorado artist Matthue DeYarus. 

America's Best Organics is one of 19 Certified B Corporations participating in the launch of "B the Change," a new consumer facing campaign from the community of Certified B Corporations, that celebrates and rewards people using business as a force for good.

Additionally, the company unveiled a new look and functionality to its website, www.AmericasBestOrganics.com, to help ease and expedite the shopper’s experience in ordering and shipping gift box collections to any location in the U.S. New features to the website include a quick buy section on the homepage, updated graphics and images, and messaging to alert shoppers that ground shipping in the US is now included in the list price.

“Our new box design reflects the essence of eco-gift giving: creativity, warmth, simplicity and recyclability. We are thrilled to introduce the new design in time for holiday orders and hope recipients around the country will be delighted,” said Seleyn DeYarus, CEO of parent company Best Organics Inc.

Bobo Oat Bar

Bobo’s Oat Bars is on the rise, and that’s outside the oven. This home-grown Boulder brand features a line of snack bars in 14 delicious flavors, including four gluten-free, all made with organic and natural Non-GMO ingredients. The bars are ideal for a light breakfast, ie “a bowl of oatmeal to go,” a pre-workout snack, in a lunch box or yoga bag, or a mid afternoon treat. Bobo’s has enjoyed an impressive annual growth rate of over 50 percent over the past three years, evolving from a home-based operation to national natural foods and specialty store distribution in ten years. Its sights are set on making a big push in 2014 to expand distribution to mainstream grocery stores, and more specialty and coffee shops, as well as foodservice outlets. Bobo’s moves to a new 12,000 square foot facility in early January, more than tripling the existing space. With the new manufacturing space, the company can enhance automation, production capabilities, and add new staff, further increasing potential for growth. The company plans to introduce new flavors and varieties in early 2014.

“Our growth has been phenomenal over the past few years, due in large part to more people asking for high-fiber, nutrient dense snacks and foods that taste great, the fact that we offer several gluten-free varieties, made with organic and non-GMO ingredients, and a lot of hard work!” says Beryl Stafford, founder and president of Bobo’s Oat Bars. “The new space will open a lot of doors for us in terms of meeting growing consumer demand, and offering new flavors and varieties. We have great positioning in natural, and we’ll continue to nurture that, but we are also ready to expand to mainstream grocery with many consumers who shop at supermarkets also interested in healthy, organic, and gluten-free and non-GMO options. We’re very excited about what’s to come.”

According to FOOD MANUFACTURING magazine, the gluten-free market is experiencing double digit growth, with the highest consumption of these products in conventional channels. The demand for new products and a variety of gluten-free products is increasing, as people begin to gain awareness of the issue of gluten intolerance vs. allergies. The Organic Trade Association reports that sales of organic foods rose 10.2% in 2012, compared to 3.7% in conventional foods.

Bobo’s Oat Bars are available at select natural foods and specialty stores nationwide. The clear packaging allows for complete “transparency” for consumers, and each Bobo Oat Bar has a 6-month shelf life. The company just became Non-GMO Certified as well as Kosher Certified. Bars retail for approximately $2.69 per 3-oz. package.

About Bobo’s Oat Bars 

Bobo's Oat Bars is a Boulder, Colorado based manufacturer of all natural and vegan breakfast /snack bars that are hand baked with the finest organic, wheat-free and gluten-free non-GMO ingredients.  The company was founded in 2004 by Beryl Stafford, a single mother and owner of a catering business. Stafford was making snack bars for her daughter, nicknamed “Bobo,” and over time reformulated the recipe for the growing health-conscious consumer audience. Bobo’s developed a strong following in Boulder, and over the 10 years in business has blossomed from a small locally-focused company to a nationally recognized brand in natural foods and specialty stores. Bobo’s Oat Bars celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2014.

TropiClean 

TropiClean is gearing up for the summer launch of their new Fresh Breath +PLUS Dental Treats. The company highlights their treats’ unique design that helps “clean teeth, freshen breath and promote overall pet wellness.” TropiClean uses natural wholesome ingredients that not only support pet oral health, but also support overall pet wellness. One exciting feature is that all of the new dental treats will be gluten-free, grain-free, corn-free and wheat-free.

The new line will include Skin & Coat, Hip & Joint, Advanced Cleaning System and Digestive Support treats, aiming to support oral health and overall pet wellness through a wholesome dental treat that dogs love. Fresh Breath +PLUS treats are proudly made in the United States with no ingredients from China.

“We know that the gold standard for clean teeth is professional cleanings performed by a veterinarian,” says Joe Wurm, TropiClean Pet Treat Brand Manager. “We also know that most pet parents do not consistently take their pets for teeth cleanings or even brush their teeth. We wanted to create a treat from natural wholesome ingredients that cleans teeth, freshens breath and dogs love—functional and simple.”

Speaking about the importance of what is in the new treats, Wurm said the company “focused on quality ingredients that you are familiar with, something similar to what you can find in your local grocery store.  That’s why we chose ingredients like our Jinsei Green Tea and blueberry which support overall pet wellness.” On the effectiveness of the new treats, Mr. Wurm explained, “We can’t tell you all of our Advanced Cleaning System secrets, but we’ll let you in on one. All of our treats contain decaffeinated green tea extract, which serves as a natural source of fluoride and antioxidants which benefit the immune system.”

TropiClean’s new treat line, featuring the four different dental treats in both small and regular sizes, is set to launch this summer. TropiClean also manufactures popular oral care pet products such as Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel and Fresh Breath Water Additive. For more information, check out their newly renovated website at tropiclean.com.

Ultimate OmegaThis holiday season, Nordic Naturals, together with its customers, will express heartfelt gratitude to the U.S. military with the gift of health through the company’s campaign, “Buy One. Pass it On.” From October through December, every time a customer purchases a bottle of Ultimate Omega, Complete Omega, Omega-3, Children’s DHA, or Nordic Berries, Nordic Naturals will donate one bottle of its No. 1-selling Ultimate Omega to Give2TheTroops, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to veterans and active-duty military in combat and disaster relief zones. Nordic Naturals will donate up to $30,000 in product.

According to Chief Medical Officer Keri Marshall, MS, ND, “Each bottle will be sent in a signature Nordic Naturals eco-bag to troops who have requested nutritional supplements. Each bag will also contain a card expressing our appreciation for their service, as well as our sincere desire that our high-quality omega oils will contribute to their optimal health during their deployment.”

Ultimate Omega is not only Nordic Naturals’ top-selling omega-3, but also the No. 1 fish oil in the United States. Ultimate Omega supports heart and brain health, immunity, and a positive mood. Without solicitation, doctors and researchers worldwide consistently choose and recommend this powerful formula, which has been shown in original research to support healthy joints, healthy lipid levels in professional athletes and the body's ability to respond to stress in an optimal way.
