We all know it’s hard to go to work, look after your children, cook dinner for your family, walk the dog and on top of everything keep a house clean - but somehow mothers get it all done! Moms do so much for us all year round that it's now time to do something special for them.
Mother’s day is a time when we want to make all mothers happy, that includes all the aunties, grandmas, and mother nature too! And what could be more perfect than eco-friendly gifts that are good for you and your family, and the environment?
Before we dive right into our favorite products we wanted to let you in on a little secret - one that will help you on your hunt for natural, safe gift ideas!
How Can EWG Verified™ Products Make Mother's Lives Easier?
When it comes to the health of your family, there should be no compromise. That is why we’ve been on a journey for almost 20 years to ensure that every single AspenClean product meets the highest standards for health, ingredient transparency, and good manufacturing practices.
Finding non-toxic, baby-safe products is always a challenge. With no regulating standards for claims on personal care & cleaning products, it's almost impossible for consumers to tell what's actually 'green'. But thanks to The Environmental Working Group (EWG), finding the best options has gotten a lot easier.
EWG rates products in their consumer guides based on their level of safety for human health and the environment. This database has called out bad ingredients and the companies using them since 1993. EWG is widely recognized as the most trusted and rigorous evaluator of chemical safety in consumer products. To find out what it means to be EWG Verified™ for cleaning products, read our blog.
Here at AspenClean’s top 3 picks of EWG Verified™ & eco-friendly products this year:
1. Aromatica Natural Coconut Cleansing Oil
Aromatica is a Korean beauty brand and the only beauty brand to earn EWG's Skindeep® Champion Status award, which is awarded to beauty brands that create toxin-free products. Every product and ingredient in the Skindeep category gets a 2-part score, one for hazard rating and one for data availability.
Did you know that many skincare products can be full of toxic chemicals that are harmful to your health and can often be linked to cancer and other diseases? That is why Aromatica's founder worked tirelessly to create a green brand with safe and effective beauty products.
One of our favorite products from their collection is the Coconut Cleansing Oil - an extra-gentle oil cleanser that combines 10% organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil with other natural oils to gently cleanse the face while providing deep nourishment and hydration.
Perfect for a pamper night after a busy day being a supermom!
2. Henry Rose: 100% Transparent Fine Fragrances
A lot of consumer products on the market use chemicals that are linked to health implications like cancer, birth defects, and many more. Despite that, manufacturers don’t have to disclose the ingredients on their packaging. This leaves consumers blindsided and vulnerable to dangerous health risks.
Henry Rose is the first line of fine fragrances made with 100% ingredient transparency. Like ourselves, they pride themselves in using only the highest standard of ingredients - which is why we think they would be a great gift for your loved ones!
One of our favorite scents is the 'Sheep's Clothing, which has a floral woody smell - trust me you won't regret buying it.
All Henry Rose products are cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, and contain no parabens or phthalates. Finally, a fragrance that doesn’t just smell lovely, but it’s also good for you, and the environment
3. AspenClean Zero-Plastic Laundry Pods
We know that seeking out the best natural laundry detergent for babies is no easy task - especially since there are a lot of choices out there. The fact is that babies have extremely sensitive skin and the last thing you want to do as a parent, is expose your baby to any toxic ingredients that may harm them.
Did you know that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has a ‘Healthy Living App’ that can help you make better choices as a consumer and as a loving parent? Not only will this help give moms peace of mind but it will also leave your babies & pets feeling happy too.
Whether it’s cleaning food off baby clothes or getting stains out after soccer matches our award-winning, EWG verified™ laundry pods are the go-to choice for parents. Voted by Parents Magazine as the Best Green Cleaner of 2022 our pods contain no synthetic fragrances and are only fragranced using organic essential oils - making them 100% baby & pet-safe too (for all the dog moms out there!)
They come in three different fragrances Unscented, Lavender & Lemongrass, and Eucalyptus & Rosemary. Treat your mom to a new experience and replace her old habits of using toxic chemicals with a new standard.
Prove it to her, that a green solution, can be easy to use, and effective, without replacing dirt with toxins. Add a subscription to the healthy living app, to help her make the right choices.
EWG Verified™ is a mark that mothers will love and trust.
