Welcome to the new erbaviva.com!
We are excited to announce our digital makeover with enhanced features and social media integration.
Our new online flagship offers our customers a user-friendly e-commerce destination to purchase products and learn more about Erbaviva’s philosophy.
“The new Erbaviva.com represents a clean and modern aesthetic.” says Robin Brown, Co-Founder of Erbaviva. “This visually compelling site allows us to express our brand ethos on a more personal level by creating an open and direct dialogue with our customers. Additionally, we continue to enhance our consumer experience by providing them all-access to our website from any tablet, digital notebook and mobile device.”
Customers now have the ability rate and review Erbaviva products as well as comment on our blog posts. We welcome customer feedback and love hearing what our consumers have to say on a grassroots level.
Erbaviva remains ever true to its originating philosophy of authenticity and enduring commitment to people and the environment with its products, manufacturing, global community service and now a new, interactive website.
Erbaviva is mentioned by Celebrity Blogger, Paula Garces, on People.com!
Actress and Celebrity Blogger Paula Garces has become a big fan of Erbaviva over the past few months. The “Devious Maids” star was first introduced to our brand by her publicists. Our organic products quickly became some of her pregnancy favorites. When it came time to celebrate Paula’s baby shower she wanted to share her favorite Erbaviva products with her friends, family and co-stars. Her goodie bags included Erbaviva Mommy-to-be Refreshing Foot Balm and Erbaviva Lip Balms (both Vanilla Grapefruit and Jasmine Orange).
Since, Paula has tweeted, instagram’d and blogged about these great organic products. Most recently she mentioned us in her celebrity blog on People.com. Check out Paula Garces’s second baby blog on People.com: “Do I Have the Right to Feel Blue?”!
Honoring the beautiful and vital community that is the world, Erbaviva’s ethos of uncompromising integrity translates to a commitment to nourish and enrich the lives of others not only through its quality organic products and environmentally responsible manufacturing, but as well its dedicated partnerships with extraordinary communities across the globe.
In the blink of an eye we can all make a difference. That is the belief of Maggie Doyne, the spirited, young founder of The BlinkNow Foundation and a sensibility shared with Erbaviva. Operating on the grassroots level of community, BlinkNow focuses on promoting sustainability and self-reliance in its efforts to empower young people to become pioneers in developing their own solutions to world poverty. The organization targets under-developed communities where extreme poverty exists and has successfully established the self-sustaining Kopila Valley Children’s Home and School in Nepal. Erbaviva is an avid and honored financial supporter of BlinkNow and its invaluable initiatives, including dedicated pediatric care for all of the children at the Kopila Valley home and school.
Sustainability creates community creates harmony. In the hills of Northern Thailand and Burma the Pwo Karen tribe are an inspiring community actively working together to transition from the region’s traditional “slash and burn” agricultural practices to creating permanent, sustainable farms. Since the company’s inception in 1996, all of Erbaviva’s unique handcrafted fabric packaging and basketry is purchased from the hill tribe through an artisan project fund that directly and financially benefits the tribe by running a health clinic for its children and assisting villagers in their important transformation to sustainability.
Closer to home and Erbaviva’s headquarters, the Highland Hall Waldorf School in Northridge, California, imparts a reverence for the earth with its world community inspired education. A kindred advocate of biodynamic farming and sustainable environmental practices, Erbaviva is an ardent financial supporter of the development of a biodynamic farm on the school’s 11-acre campus.
What is Organic?
Organic products are made with ingredients that were grown or produced without the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or sewer sludge. By eliminating these components, organic products not only have a low impact on our environment, but also are much healthier for our bodies. The skin is the largest organ we have, it is important to remember that it is a living part of our body.
Certified Organic products have gone through a third party verification to ensure that they comply with organic standards. Because there is no organic standard for skin care products, they must meet the same organic requirements that food products go through.
Erbaviva is proud to be one of the few skin care producers to carry the USDA certified organic seal. This means, our ingredients, the facility, and the process our products go through meet the stringent National Organic Program standards. Products carrying the
USDA seal contain 95% or more USDA certified organic ingredients.
We use the purest, highest quality ingredients it is possible to find. Starting with the quality of our organic essential oils, which are the finest you will find anywhere. Sourced from around the world we import our own oils from the finest growers and distillers. Often our suppliers are small farms who have worked for generations to make the optimum essential oil they can make. They opt to make smaller quantities of oil and charge more for it, so we pay a high price to obtain superlative quality oils. It is worth it though, both for their therapeutic quality as well as their superior aroma.
For our other raw ingredients, we source the highest quality organic vegetable oils, which are kept fresh and pure under optimum conditions. We use natural and organic antioxidants in the oils to preserve their shelf life. We also bottle the oils with nitrogen ( a natural and inert gas) which keeps the oils in a preserved time capsule until opened. Our creams use a completely natural emulsifier which though it has a long and complicated name (Cetearyl Wheat Bran Glycosides and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a completely natural extract from wheat bran. The Cetearyl Alcohol is not an alcohol as we know it, it is in fact a natural fatty acid that is emollient to the skin; again derived from wheat bran. Our creams are both light and natural and offer a very pure and high quality example of what can be produced naturally. Our sunscreen is probably the lightest, most effective natural sunscreen available offering full spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful rays. You can smell the purity in all of our creams!
We are proud to use shampoos that are completely free from all harsh detergents ( no Sodium Laurel Sulphates, or anything remotely related to it). Our main
(natural) detergent is Olivoil Glutinate which is derived naturally from olive oil. We use a secondary mild detergent called Decyl Polyglucose (naturally extracted from corn). We boost the foaminess of our shampoos and body washes with Quilaja extract, a completely natural extract from the Chilean Soap Bark Tree. We feel confident our shampoos, soaps and body washes are the most natural and mildest you will find.
All of our other raw ingredients, whether they be organic oats, organic milk , organic lavender flowers, organic echinacea etc., all have a remarkable story connected to how and where they are sourced. All in all, you can feel completely confident that we have brought some of nature’s best ingredients together to make Erbaviva the trustworthy brand it has become for you to enjoy the many benefits.
