Earth Mother Botanicals Ltd. Ten Year Anniversary with BMEX
Published on February 17, 2011 by BMEX
Earth Mother Botanicals Ltd. will be celebrating ten years in business at BMEX 2010.  They launched their original product line at BMEX 2000 and their booth won First Prize in the Best Booth Competition that year.

Earth Mother Botanicals Limited (EMBL) produces a chemical free skin care line from organic herbs, fruits and flowers grown in Barbados.  These local plants are combined with high quality oils and other natural food grade ingredients.  No chemical preservatives, colors, or fragrances are added.  Therefore, the products are non-allergenic for most people and are gently healing for the skin.  The scents are subtle and come from the fresh plants and pure essential oils.  EMBL grows most of the plants they use in their products and what they do not grow they also source locally. 

Commenting on their product and process, CEO Amy Le May indicated that “We grow the plants; harvest and process them and then manufacture the final product.  That way, we ensure that the plants that are used in the products are fresh and we know what is going into our products from the ground up.

“We recycle, compost and do all of our manufacturing in an environmentally sustainable way. Our soaps as well as the Bug Be Gone, Morinda Rub, Green Earth Salve, Solar Eclipse Sunbloc and Total Eclipse Zinc Cream are available at Super Centres, Trimarts, Jordan's Supermarkets and some of the Knights Pharmacies.

“Best of Barbados and Cave Shepherd also carry some of our products and they are used by some of the top end spas on the island such as Sandy Lane, Hilton, Chakra and Chateau de Beauté to name a few.  We are also pleased to supply some of the hotels with guest room soaps like Peach & Quiet, Sea U, Round House and several Villas.

“EMBL exports to the UK and the Caribbean. We are currently working on expanding into Canada and the US.” Ms. Le May concluded

The theme for the Spa area at BMEX this year is “Breadfruit” EMBL has created a new facial line and a new soap featuring breadfruit and pomegranate. 

This new “Soca Breadfruit” four-step facial line includes a facial scrub with breadfruit flour and pomegranate seeds, a local clay masque with the breadfruit, a toner and moisturizing cream with breadfruit leaves and pomegranate.  Let’s face it, there is no way to stop the aging process, but we can slow it down.  This new facial is wonderful for for “graceful aging” and energizing the skin.  It is full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other phyto-nutrients. 

Of course the proven effective popular products will be on sale at BMEX as well. Products such as Bug Be Gone Cream insect repellent (now that the rains have started). This product is even safe for use on infants.  Green Earth Soothing Skin Salve is effective against eczema and other skin irritations.  For those who suffer from arthritis and other pain and inflammation, there is the Morinda Leaf Muscle & Joint Rub.  This product has no menthol or other added essential oils that can cause irritation or burning on the skin.  It is safe for use on broken skin making it great for athletes as well as the elderly and anyone who needs a bit of relief from pain and doesn’t want the tell tale smell.

Other facial and body care products will also be available.  As usual, the practitioners will be there to offer foot massages and skin analysis as well as mini facials with the new Soca Breadfruit line.

Earth Mother Botanicals is an ecologically sustainable company, doing what they can to preserve the resources, culture and agricultural diversity of our precious island. Look for them at BMEX 2010 being held at the Sir Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre over this Whitsuntide weekend.
