Goddess Garden, a Boulder-based skincare company, was founded in 2004 by Nova Covington, entrepreneur and mom. As a new mother, Nova was inspired to create organic skincare products initially for her daughter Paige, who was allergic to sulfates, the synthetic soap in traditional bath products. Motivated to develop safe skincare solutions, Nova launched additional natural products, including sunscreen made with over 82% Organic ingredients using pure minerals, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, as the active agents for sun protection -- the highest organic content of any sunscreen on the market.
In 2009, Goddess Garden launched its line of Organic Sunscreen that protects and nourishes without harsh chemicals. This long-lasting SPF 30 sunscreen is made with sheer minerals that reflect 97% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Goddess Garden’s line of organic suncare products is water resistant, non-greasy, absorb quickly and nourish sensitive skin with the highest percentage of organic ingredients available in a sunscreen—over 82 percent!
Goddess Garden continues to innovate by recently introducing the first organic, chemical-free sunscreen in a spray. Currently Goddess Garden’s family of suncare products include adult, kid’s, baby and facial suncreens in sizes ranging from 0.4 oz travel packs to 8 oz spray bottles.
Goddess Garden Natural Suncare products are now available in natural grocery stores nationally including 6 regions of Whole Foods, Pharmaca, Sprouts, Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, Sunflower Markets, New Seasons, PCC Natural Markets among others.
The Natural Foods Merchandiser magazine, a leading industry publication for natural products, selected Goddess Garden Kid’s Natural Sunscreen Best Sunscreen in April 2009. Natural Solutions magazine editors seconded that opinion by awarding Goddess Garden two “Beauty with a Conscience” awards for Best Sunscreen and Best Toner (October 2009). In 2010, Delicious Living magazine selected Goddess Garden as their Summer Sunscreen Pick (July 2010). Also in 2010, Goddess Garden Kid’s Sunscreen was selected as a Kid’s Pick-Approved Product for PCC Natural Markets (December 2010).
Goddess Garden was founded with a commitment to product excellence while maintaining a low carbon footprint. The woman-owned company provides safe and effective products using environmentally sustainable business practices. Goddess Garden supports organic farmers, local schools and environment and family-friendly organizations.
