As we wrap up Earth Month and Earth Day celebrations, we think it is important that we celebrate all this beautiful planet has to offer and find ways to help our planet and preserve our natural resources for generations to come daily!
For Terranova, the “green movement” has never been a “fad,” but a way of life. Since our inception 45 years ago by visionary Jane Saunders, Terranova® (meaning ‘new earth’) was one of the first to put into practice many of the initiatives that have become popular in the natural beauty industry:
- For instance, back in the 70’s, the concept of refilling and reusing plastic bottles for skin care wasn’t even heard of and was a concept that Jane developed!
- Another “first” was the concept of using natural specialty oils, like Jojoba in formulations. Back when Jane began using Jojoba, it was so uncommon that she actually had to purchase it from a Native American tribe where it was grown and harvested!
- At her original retail outlets, Jane was also one of the first to utilize Muslin bags to reduce waste from plastic and paper shopping bags.
- Terranova bath, body, & fragrance was also the first to incorporate botanical oils, essential oils, and vegetable based glycerins in formulations… which have now become a standard in the natural beauty industry.
Today, Terranova’s mission and commitment to “truth & beauty” continues through the creation of products with fresh, clean fragrances and natural ingredients that celebrate our planet earth! Come celebrate with us today! :)
