Emerita (e-MER-ita) is a woman-owned company that's been in the business of serving women since the 1970s. Emerita began as a family business, which youngest daughter Sharon MacFarland took over in 1983 at the age of 23. Since then Sharon built the company into Emerita: A leading national brand of natural wellness products for women. In the early days, Emerita marketed natural menopause products through the Transitions For Health catalog and through physicians' offices. The catalog even appeared in an episode of Sex & the City.
Then in the 1990s, Emerita's flagship progesterone cream, Pro-Gest, was introduced at natural food stores, launching a whole category of natural wellness products for mature women. Since then, Emerita has expanded its offerings to include sexual vitality, feminine care, health supplements and skin care products, as well. Emerita has long been a socially-responsible company that respects and empowers its employees, while operating in an open and collaborative fashion. Emerita also has a long history as an advocate for women, valuing education about women's health issues. Emerita is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, one of America's most beautiful cities and a wonderful place to live — naturally.
Emerita understands that their business affects the environment and recognizes that it is their responsibility to care for the health and balance of the planet, just as they have been caring for the health and balance of women for the past 30 years. Emerita's aim is to improve what they do today is to benefit our planet today and the women of tomorrow.
Emerita provides full ingredient disclosure on all of their products and does not make claims that their products are all-natural or 100% organic. Emerita also believes that products should deliver on their promise. Emerita's promise is to deliver safe and effective products with high quality ingredients that include natural and organic botanicals.
Emerita products come in several forms, including creams, lotions and serums. To ensure their effectiveness and shelf life stability it is necessary to use formula building blocks that create the products' form. For those building blocks Emerita strives to use only plant and mineral derived ingredients whenever possible. When these options aren't available Emerita utilizes research from sources such as the European Union, Environmental Working Group, the Breast Cancer Fund and other ingredient filters for recommendations on the safest stabilizing chemicals available to produce the highest quality product. Additionally, Emerita is committed to continually monitoring ongoing scientific discoveries to identify the best and healthiest choices for all their products.
Of course, when Mother Nature offers effective, consistent and safe options — Emerita eagerly incorporates them into their products. Organic botanicals, helpful natural antioxidants, mild coconut-based soaps, plant derived oils and extracts, are part of the mix from Mother Nature and are vital ingredients to Emerita's products.
In addition, Emerita's products do not contain mineral oil, petroleum, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate or animal anything. Emerita's products are vegan, and have never been tested on animals.

Additionally, Emerita offsets 100% of the electricity used in their Portland, OR office and 100% of their business travel by airplane or car through the purchase of Green Tags. Emerita's green tags are purchased through The Bonneville Environmental Foundation, a non-profit organization that sells carbon offsets as renewable energy certificates, which it calls Green Tags. These Green Tags replace traditional polluting sources of electricity with clean, secure, and sustainable renewable sources of energy that come from solar and wind power from across North America. One Green Tag represents enough renewable energy to offset a typical home for a month with clean wind and solar power, and is equal to:
- 1,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy onto North America's power grids
- 1,500 miles of offsetting emissions from a standard car
The Green Tags are a blend of Green-e Climate Certified renewable energy resources.

Excellent stuff.....saw a difference within 3 weeks. Been using it for about 4 months now. Must say that the scent isn't the best. Smells like a dry green tea bag sprinkled on top with dry earth. So get your tea bag out and throw some dirt on it....and this is what it smells like! But it's worth it,really. Put it on the bottom of your feet with some socks and you're set. Though the cream shouldn't be used on the same area for extended amounts of time. One last thing, it's a bit sticky. Takes at least 15 minutes to dry completely. But as I said before...it's worth it.
Best brand for progesterone. Easy to use and greatly decreased my PMS symptoms. Love it!
Instant relief!!!!! I haven't felt like myself in over three years due to apartial hysterectomy; I'm 38. I wish I took this product sooner--better late than never.
Please don't stop making this.
I have used this product successfully since the early 90's, but could not get it locally anymore. Lucky Vitamin has great prices and efficient shipping services.
I have used the product not as directed by the manufacturer but as directed by my natural nutritionist. She told me to rub a dab of it twice daily on the front throat thyroid area with the week pause. No more hot flashes then; post menopause it keeps the vaginal area healthy. Great product!
expected bottle to be bigger
I rate this product a number Five it has improved my Post Menupasual syptoms that.s generaly follows the decrease or the imbalance of hormones. Bio Identical product.
This seems to help hot flashes for me. This goes on smoothly and has a light barely there smell. The price is great also.
Really helps with menopausal symptoms.
The price for the amount you get is unbeatable. 1 tube has lasted me over 6 months. Although at first I was not using it the twice daily for 21 days. It was more like once a day for 14 days.
But, now that I have used this product regularly morning and night for 21 days a month, my menstrual cramps are diminishing. Such a God send.
