About the Company:

Goddess Garden Organics was created by a mom after her daughter’s skin reacted to conventional body products. After trying alternatives, founder Nova Covington was inspired to make all of her family’s products, including sunscreen. Word of her products spread and she started selling at farmers’ markets and festivals. After selling out of sunscreen mid-way through a festival, Nova narrowed her focus and specialized on clean sunscreens that went on sheer, were easy to use, and offered the same benefits as the chemical options. Today, Goddess Garden is broadening their reach and is also offering organic facial care and essential oils to help people take more chemicals out of their lives.

About the Products:

Goddess Garden offers the kind of products people can feel good about. Their sunscreens are effective and safe for people and the planet. They are available in sticks, lotions, and non-aerosol continuous sprays to help take the worry out of a day in the sun and make sun protection more convenient. All products are certified organic and free from harsh chemicals and hormone disruptors. All are also non-nano, reef-safe, biodegradable, cruelty free, vegan, and come in recyclable packaging. To further their goal of providing ways to remove toxins from the home, Goddess Garden also offers a line of certified-organic essential oils and a facial care line designed to naturally counter the sun damage that can add up and add to the look of aging.

Quote from the Founder

“Life is about balance. It’s the same with my company. Women offer a new perspective in business, and balance the traditional male leadership model. We’re natural leaders and are proven to be good at taking initiative and driving for results. With my daughter inspiring my company, I really try to have a good work/family balance since family is the reason I started the business.”
