SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Hand and Body Scrub 

Now you can achieve perfectly smooth skin literally from head to toe with SheaMoisture’s NEW Hand & Body Scrubs.  Each formula is ideal for use on the delicate skin on the hands, and gently and effectively removes dead skin cells, leaving your entire body silky soft.

“Just as you exfoliate the skin on your face, you need to remove the top layer of skin on your hands to reveal the fresh skin underneath,” says Denise Clark, SheaMoisture Director of Education. “Regular exfoliation will keep your hands looking smoother, softer and more youthful, as well as aid in combating dry, flakey skin in the colder months.” 

SheaMoisture’s Hand & Body Scrubs are available in six different flavors:

Olive & Green Tea – With a high content of healing Vitamin E and fatty acids, Olive Butter helps hydrate, repair and heal skin.  Rich in powerful anti-oxidants and vitamins, Green Tea and Avocado protect skin and help regenerate skin cells.

Patchouli & Red Bush – Rich in alpha hydroxyl acid and zinc, Red Bush helps exfoliate and heal skin, while Patchouli’s anti-inflammatory properties calm irritated skin. 

Argan Oil & Raw Shea – Argan Oil hydrates and repairs dry skin thanks to its high content of Vitamin E.  Frankincense & Myrrh offer anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that aid in healing dry, cracked skin. 

Lavender & Wild Orchid – Combining the calming and soothing effects of Lavender with the restorative properties of Orchid Extract, this nourishing scrub also hydrates and heals.

Lemongrass & Ginger – This purifying and uplifting scrub uses Lemongrass to help balance skin and Ginger to relive joint stiffness and muscular pain, and improve circulation.

Coconut & Hibiscus – This nutrient-rich sugar scrub exfoliates and tones with a blend of antioxidant Vitamin E, organic Coconut Oil and sweet Hibiscus Flower.

SheaMoisture’s Hand & Body Scrubs have a suggested retail price of $9.99 and are available at select Target and Walmart locations nationwide.  For more information, please visit SheaMoisture.com.

Sprout Foods Sprout Smash Organic Blueberrry Greek Yogurt SmoothieSprout Foods, which offers chef-inspired, wholesome and certified organic foods for children, announced today the launch of Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches, its first-ever line of food for school-aged kids. These new, great tasting organic pureed snacks, ideal for kids pre-school through elementary school, come in easy-to-squeeze pouches and feature wholesome ingredients.

The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches – in nine tasty Vegetable & Fruit, Greek Yogurt & Superfruit, and Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors – are nutritionally superior to the standard applesauce snacks offered on the market today. The Sprout Smash snacks are made with real vegetables, fruits and grains, are certified USDA organic, and deliver nutrition from whole foods, not artificial fortification. Each 4 oz. Sprout Smash snack provides about 20% more product than the pouch-snack competition and comes in a BPA-free, squeezable pouch with a re-sealable cap that makes them great for on-the-go kids.

“When children reach school age, their days are filled with learning, playing and trying new activities, and it seems like they are always on the move. But most of the grab-as-you-go snack foods available today simply aren’t healthy,” says Geoff Stella, VP of Marketing , Sprout Foods. “We’ve created the Sprout Smash snacks with that in mind, to give kids wholesome foods that are full of nutrition and flavor and can be enjoyed whenever, wherever.”

The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches line-up includes:

• Vegetable & Fruit flavors that are made from more vegetables than fruit and are nutritious, naturally sweet, and delicious (Butternut Squash & Grape, Pumpkin & Strawberry, Carrot & Orange);

• Greek Yogurt & Superfruit flavors packed with protein from the non-fat Greek Yogurt and high-antioxidants from the fruit blends (Strawberry & Cherry, Acai & Raspberry, Blueberry & Blackcurrant); and

• Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors made with nutritious quinoa and coconut milk for the perfect quick, light morning meal or tasty after-school or after-sports snack (Cherry & Apple, Peach & Banana, Banana & Berry).

The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches will be available in the applesauce section of national grocers in August. For more information, please visit www.sproutorganicfoods.com.

3Girls Holistic perfumeLittle girls love to play with make-up. But most conventional cosmetics targeted to young girls are filled with questionable and toxic ingredients. With that in mind, 3Girls Holistic announces the launch of 100% organic and wild-harvested products designed for young girls.

Launching in August 2013, the roll-on Pretty Flower Perfume and Orange Pop Lip Gloss feature good-enough-to-eat ingredients like coconut oil, beeswax, honey, and pure essential fruit oils. Beautiful packaging and sweet scents make these irresistible to young girls with a cosmetic candy crush.

3 Girls Holistic is a new organic-based skincare line creating natural, affordable, and effective products for women as well as products targeted to new moms and children. The line includes cleansers, creams, aromatherapy mists, and postpartum products.

3Girls Holistic was developed to not only nourish the skin but to improve overall health. With that philosophy in mind, the entire line is 100% natural and handcrafted with either organic or wild-harvested ingredients that have been carefully selected for their demonstrated benefits. In fact, the entire line is pure enough to eat!

Unlike other natural products on the market that contain dozens of ingredients, 3Girls Holistic believes less is more.  Being selective and simple gives each ingredient the ability to work at its maximum benefit level. 3Girls Holistic infuses its herbs into the essential oils over a period of weeks, to achieve their highest potential for healing.

All products are handmade in Nevada and all materials are sourced from U.S.-based companies. Education and charitable giving is imperative to the brand, which gives a portion of all proceeds to Improving Birth, Human Milk Bank Association of North America, and Earth Island Institute.

3Girls Holistic was founded in 2012 by Amy Paolinelli, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and mother of three. Amy studies Herbal Medicine for Women and provides education and a variety of pure and clean herbal products for health and healing. Amy is joined by co-owner Melonie McCoy, another work-at-home mom and advocate for natural health and beauty.

3Girls Holistic products are available at Motherhood Maternity stores nationwide, online at 3girlsholistic.com, and in other select retailers.

Lisa's Organics Frozen Veggies 

The 66 million working women who don’t have time to prepare a nutritious meal are about to receive good news! Lisa’s Organics, the maker of a line of certified organic vegetable frozen side dishes, has combined the highest-quality veggies with chef-inspired sauces that go from freezer to dinner plate in just five minutes.  Working women can eat dinner again!

Ideal as a standalone veggie for a healthy mini-meal or as a complement to a nutritious lunch or dinner, Lisa’s Organics offers five varieties complete with chef-inspired glazes and sauces. The entire line is an easy way for anyone, even the most schedule-crunched businesswomen, to serve delicious hot meals in minutes.

Whether it’s a savory addition to a risotto, a burst of flavor in a salsa or a gourmet touch to any pasta or quiche, Lisa’s Organics help create tasty meals anyone can enjoy. With each bag (MSRP $3.49) containing two low-sodium servings, the Lisa’s Organics line includes California Vegetables in Balsamic Glaze, Sweet Peas in Parmesan Herb Sauce, Whole Green Beans in Garlic Olive Oil Sauce, Broccoli Florets in Gorgonzola Bleu Cheese Sauce, and Southwest Vegetables in Ranchero Sauce.  All of the products come with recipe ideas to help make quick meals in minutes.

More than just an organic food company, Lisa’s Organics is fully committed to a “greener” world. Along with a first-of-its-kind #2 recyclable bag to reduce waste into landfills, they lower fuel consumption by buying from US and Canadian farmers, packaging products in the US and centrally locating their warehouse so they can get products to stores without undue time on the roadways.  In 2012, Lisa’s Organics created Garden to Hospitals, a program dedicated to teaching kids the importance of healthy eating in order for them to be advocates for change in their school lunch rooms and kitchens serving meals to kids in hospitals.
