- Aunt Ann's Garden Soap brings the effective simplicity of organic botanicals to baby care with their latest offering Good Night Baby - AuntAnnsGardenSoap.com.
Approaching their first anniversary, Aunt Ann's Garden Soap announces their first addition to the product line. The success of their Stress and Tension Bar for women inspired the youngest member of this family company to suggest a change. Elias Worthy, 7 years old, said, "Babies aren't like adults and older children. They need something specially made for them because they are more fragile."
Good Night Baby is a blend of certified organic lavender and pink roses blended in a high glycerin content soap made from palm oil and water and superfatted with evening primrose oil. The addition of evening primrose oil makes Good Night Baby helpful with the occasional mild eczema that occurs in some infants.
Purity is the hallmark of Good Night Baby. There are no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, no manufacturing, coloring, or fragrance additives. Good Night Baby has been entered in the Environmental Work Group (EWG) project database Skin Deep (ewg.org/reports/skindeep/). The Skin Deep Project lists hundreds of cosmetic products and rates their potential health threat based on their ingredients. The rating system from 0.0 to 3.3 assesses risk as low, moderate and high. Good Night Baby was scored 0.2 by EWG. In comparison, 85% of the other products in the database were of more concern. The database also annotates companies that have signed the Safe Cosmetics Compact.
The Safe Cosmetics Compact is an agreement from manufacturer's to refrain from using specific chemicals and compounds that are currently known to be toxic. Surprisingly, toxicity is not a concern for many large and profitable companies in the health and beauty industry. It gives new life to the Billy Crystal punch line, "It is better to look good than to feel good."
Aunt Ann’s Garden Soap is committed to effective alternatives to the current popular trends. Company president, Dawn Worthy, notes, “You see the word ‘natural’ every where but after all the label reading is read and done, most people would be hard pressed to call most of these products natural. We believe that you can look good, be good to yourself and the planet at the same time. This is our contribution to the solution.”
Aunt Ann’s Garden Soap is also an official sponsor to breastcancer.org (breastcancer.org). $2 from every purchase of their Bath Basket for Breast Cancer supports breastcancer.org. An unsettling percentage of cancerous breast tissue has been found to contain parabens as well as other common compounds found in cosmetics. here is currently no causal link being made between the statistically meaningful occurrence of these compounds and the incidence of cancer. However, the frequency is consistent enough to be, at best, suspicious.
The Worthy family sums up their vision in the mission statement of the parent company, Fresh From the Farm, “...to help people have healthier bodies, healthier babies and a healthier planet” through their product lines and their charitable endeavors.
