Vermont Soap develops USDA certified organic herbal moisturizer for sensitive skin
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — Vermont Soap has introduced its new Green Gold organic herbal moisturizer — an age-defying beauty treatment for face, hands, neck and all sun-damaged skin.
Green Gold is a nontoxic, anti-aging moisturizer that is safe for the most sensitive skin. It replaces petrochemical-based lotions, salves, serums and balms with 100% organic plant-based ingredients.
Green Gold organic herbal moisturizer is the result of years of research by Vermont Soap into enhancing the moisturizing and healing effects of shea nut butter. Green Gold smoothes and soothes while reducing the appearance of fine line wrinkles. Green Gold goes in deep to rebuild and restore tired collagen beneath the surface of the skin, the company stated.
Vermont Soap has enhanced shea butter’s natural properties with essential fatty acids from organic hemp seed oil and with anti-inflammatory herbs like calendula, St. Johns Wort and rosemary.
Green Gold organic herbal moisturizer is USDA certified organic and bears the USDA 95% organic content seal. It contains no preservatives or artificial colors or fragrances. It is also gluten-, animal- and lactose-free. The 2.5-oz. bottle has a suggested retail price of $12.48, and the 1.5-oz. bottle is $7.98.
Centennial anniversary of the vitamin recognized in the House
WASHINGTON — Honoring the 100th anniversary of the vitamin, Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., last week entered into the U.S. House of Representatives’ Congressional Record remarks recognizing this special milestone, the Council for Responsible Nutrition announced.
In 1912, Polish-American scientist Casimir Funk, considered the "father of vitamin therapy," first used the term "vitamin" to describe a group of bioactive substances vital to human health.
In his statement, Rep. Pallone, who is co-chairman of the Dietary Supplement Caucus and a dietary supplement industry champion in the House of Representatives, noted, "Because of [Casimir Funk’s] work, we know that vitamins are essential for good health through every stage of [the] human life cycle and that our bodies require vitamins to grow, to function, to stay healthy and to prevent the onset of disease."
