Frequently Asked Questions
Are all of your products really organic?
It's a sensible question, especially in light of the many products falsely claiming to be natural or organic. All Earth Mama Angel Baby teas, Angel Baby Blossoms and Postpartum Bath Herbs are USDA certified 100% Organic. Angle Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, Calm & Clean Hand To Toe Wash, Natural Non-Scents Hand To Toe Wash, and Happy Mama Hand To Toe Wash are NSF/ANSI 305 Certified Contains Organic Oils. Angel Baby Lotion and Earth Mama Body Butter are NSF/ANSI 305 Certified Contains Organic Oils. Angel Baby Lotion and Earth Mama Body Butter are NSF/ANSI 305 Certified Contains Organic Ingredients.
Each Earth Mama Angel Baby product has as many organic ingredients as they can pack into it, but some essential ingredients aren't available as organic yet. And of course, Earth Mama products are free from toxins and any worrisome ingredients, like artificial preservatives, fragrances, dyes or surfactants.
But what does "organic" really mean?
It means that the plant was grown with respect for the earth, the soil, the farmer and you, the consumer. Certified organic farms adhere to strict standards, growing crops without the use of harmful pesticides, or the usual dose of toxic chemical fertilizers. Manufacturers of certified organic products have to undertake a monumental process that assures consumers of the purity of each ingredient, process, and final product, through every stage of manufacture.
Why aren't ALL of your ingredients organic?
Simply put, some ingredients just don't exist in an organic form, and some ingredients are not available certified organic. Sometimes the herbs they use are not cultivated, they grow in the wild, and are harvested with respect for sustainability and the integrity of the plant population. Since Mama is a member of the United Plant Savers, they can do their best to support practices that ensure healthy population of herbs growing in the wild. You will see these herbs listed as "wild harvested."
What's your position about the use of palm oil?
Earth Mama Angel Baby shares your concerns about deforestation and conservation, which is why they use only sustainably harvested palm oil in Earth Mama Angel Baby products. Their passion about caring for mamas extends to Mother Earth too, and they strive to use herbs, oils and butters that are grown and harvested only in ways that honor the earth, her people and her resources.
Do you use lanolin, SLS, parabens or other synthetic preservatives?
No, and they never have.
Should I be worried about using that stuff?
There are a lot of uneasy concerns about some of the ingredients commonly used in personal care products. Mama never wants you to have to worry about those things, so she has worked very hard to formulate the purest, safest products for mamas and babies.
If you don't use synthetic preservatives, what do you use to preserve your products to make sure they are safe and free of bacteria and mold?
All Earth Mama oil-based products, salves and massage oils don't contain water so they don't need a preservative to keep out the unpleasantries that can grow there.
Lotions, on the other hand (or knee, or elbow), are made by emulsifying (blending) oils and water. And because of their rich organic and natural ingredients, they can become a perfect medium for nasty bacteria or mold. To combat that, Earth Mama Angel Baby's 100% organic preservative system is a certified organic alcohol extract of skin healing and moisturizing organic herbs. Beneficial to you, and safely preserved too!
Where is the expiration date on Earth Mama products?
Earth Mama uses a simple code that is their Sell By/Best By date as well as their batch and lot code. You will find a printed number that looks like this: 201409. In that example, 2014 is the year and 09, September, is the month by when the product is guaranteed to be at its best.
I have an expired product. Will it hurt me or my baby?
Earth Mama stamps a Sell By date on all products as a freshness guide for their resellers and customers, but this isn't an expiration date. To be sure of the quality of their products, they keep a sample from each batch of product that they make. Some product in this sample inventory are over 5 years old and are still just fine! That said, you should always use your own best judgment, if it smells "off," don't use it. You can extend the life of oils and salves by making certain they stay cool out of direct sunlight. So, don't store Earth Mama Angel Baby products on a windowsill or in the trunk of your car, and they should be fine for at least a year past the Sell By date.
I need to know if your products will irritate my or my baby's allergies.
You are the best judge of what is safe for you and your baby. You know your body best. Please read the ingredients lists to see if any of your known allergens are in these products. If you have specific questions or concerns about product safety, allergies, or ingredients, it is always best to consult with your Midwife or Naturopathic Doctor or another trusted healthcare professional who is knowledgeable about the use of herbs during pregnancy and when breastfeeding a baby.
I am vegan, are all Earth Mama products vegan and cruelty-free?
Yes they are, certified vegan in fact! They use no animal products like lanolin, and their balms are made using plant based wax instead of beeswax.
Why are there little white specks in my Natural Nipple Butter and Angel Baby Bottom Balm?
The white specks are shea butter, and may appear in Angel Baby Bottom Balm, Natural Nipple Butter, or Earth Mama Bottom Balm. When shea butter is cold, it solidifies. When it is warmed by contact with your skin, it should quickly melt and become a soft consistency again. Products made with natural ingredients, like herbs and essential oils, may vary in appearance across lots and final product batches, as they have no yucky additives to create false consistency.
Is Angel Baby Bottom Balm good to use with cotton diapers?
You bet! In fact, Earth Mama Angel Baby has received wonderful feedback from their customers, as well as cloth diaper companies, saying Angel Baby Bottom Balm is the best with cloth diapers.
Do I need to wash the Natural Nipple Butter off my breasts before breastfeeding my Angel Baby?
No, it's safe for both you and your angel baby.
Why did my Shampoo/Body Wash/Hand To Toe Wash turn cloudy?
It's because during shipping just got too cold. When the temperature drops, the natural fatty acids in these products begin to solidify and appear cloudy. Just pop your Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, Calm & Clean Hand To Toe Wash, Natural Non-Scents Hand To Toe Wash, or Happy Mama Hand To Toe Wash into a cup of warm water and it will clear right up. Cloudy or clear, it will lather up and clean your pure, organic angel baby naturally!
How do I heat my Booby Tubes if I don't have a microwave?
One of the more intrepid Mama's Helpers took this question on and took some Booby Tubes home for a little experiment in her own oven. The results were terrific - as long as you don't forget to take the Booby Tubes out of the oven! Pretheyheat your oven to the lowest setting (that was 170 degrees on Mama's Helper's oven), place your Booby Tubes in an oven-safe dish, away from the heating element, and heat them for 10-15 minutes. After 15 minutes, they don't seem to get much warmer, so that seems to be all the time they need. Please set a timer and keep a very close eye on them while they are in the oven! One advantage of the microwave is it shuts off automatically, so with a regular oven, you'll have to be more diligent.
How do I clean my Booby Tubes?
Just wipe the outside 100% organic cotton with a damp cloth. It is important that you don't submerge them in water (or put them in a washing machine) as they are filled with flax seeds and if they get wet, they may sprout (really!).
Why do you use plastic bottles and jars? Why don't you use glass bottles and jars?
Earth Mama Angel Baby's commitment to honor the earth and her valuable resources extends to their packaging as well as their natural and organic ingredients. They are even the proud recipients of the BRAG (Business Recycling Award Group) for their green practices, and they are always looking for ways to better what they do. At this point, the plastic PET bottles and jars they use are the safest containers for both the products and customers. Their containers are colored to keep out harmful UV rays. The PET they use is the most readily recyclable and the safest plastic manufactured.
Earth Mama Angel Baby products were originally packaged in glass, until they got reports of breakage, and found out a woman was cut opening jar of Natural Nipple Butter that had broken in transit. The last thing they want to do is hurt a mama with sore nipples! And they know how containers can end up bumping and slipping around changing tables and bathrooms, and can end up in little mouths too, so they choose to package their products in tumble and teething resistant plastic jars.
Their opinion is that glass presents a much bigger safety concern than plastic. And, as always, they're looking for the safest, purest way to keep mamas and babies happy!

Earth Mama Angel Baby's pregnancy, childbirth and baby products were, ahem, born of their sincere faith in the natural process of birthing babies. Supporting the pure process naturally with nature's gifts makes sense to them.

The mamas (and honorary-mama papas) at Earth Mama Angel Baby are a dedicated and diverse group of nurses, herbalists, labor and postpartum doulas, childbirth hypnotherapists, childbirth educators, women, mothers and grandmothers. And a father of two.
They strive to provide research tools and products to empower women with knowledge about the earth's natural resources for nurturing themselves and their angel babies. It is also their goal, in times of grief, to help provide real physical support, resource information and emotional and spiritual comfort to women who have experienced the loss of a baby. They have created the Healing Hearts Baby Loss Comfort web site to specifically address these heartbreaking needs.
Growing, birthing, and nurturing babies are natural and wondrous processes. Let's care for your angel babies and yourself - naturally.
