Say hi to your new routine-simplifying, three-in-one, multi-purpose SPF 40, cruelty-free sunscreen stick for your beautiful self. Meet Lady Face, a tinted mineral sunscreen stick in two sheer, blendable shades. Free of toxic chemicals (and third-party certified for personal care), she glides on smooth and is infused with rich, moisturizing organic shea and cocoa butter. Plus, reef-safe Lady Face contains the ray-scattering non-nano zinc — but it won’t leave you lookin’ like a ghost. Instead, she serves up the glowy color in two perfect shades of you, so you can be your radiant self.
Think of it as a little kiss of sun … minus the sun.
Also? She’s versatile. Both the Light/Medium and the Medium/Dark tints are sheer enough to use on a wide spectrum of skin tones but are easily buildable for customized coverage.

This is Melinda Olson; she’s the original Earth Mama. A nurse, mother, and grandmother, Melinda is also a plant lady/gardener and avid herbalist. In the spring of ’97, Melinda began studying medicinal herbs and how to extract their healing powers — which led to planting, nurturing, and harvesting a wide variety of herbs to study how best to harvest their healing essence. What was once a hobby “blossomed” into a life-changing understanding of plant medicine.
Her interest was fueled by a deep desire to educate people about our body’s innate ability to find homeostasis and to use plants to help nudge them back into balance. As humans, we have the opportunity to live long and healthy lives, as long as we avoid harming ourselves — and the earth— in the process. Why not heal and support our bodies with what nature has readily available. Her obsession quickly became a passion to marry evidence-based research with practical knowledge about how to harness nature’s gifts.
In 2002, Melinda began making and sharing organic tinctures, teas, soaps, and salves using self-grown herbs. These were formulations grounded in earth wisdom and ancient knowledge — and they worked. Melinda had a feeling the world was ready for these kinds of remedies— especially pregnant and postpartum women, their babies, and their families. There is even a line of products to comfort and support women who have suffered baby loss. And thus, Earth Mama the Company was born.
Eventually, Earth Mama outgrew Melinda’s garage, laundry room, dining room, kitchen, and halfway down the bedroom hall, so the company expanded into a facility in Clackamas, Oregon. Soon, thousands of pregnant women and new mamas looked to Earth Mama for safe herbal products for baby care, and to effectively soothe the common discomforts of pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, and way beyond. Now, Melinda’s company is known as Earth Mama Organics … but it’s still the same reliable, trusted line of mama and baby care that began over two decades ago. Even better? Melinda is still the formulator of every product, still runs the company, is still obsessed with plants, and, if you ask her, she will probably share her wisdom about what it really means to be organic. For hours. Maybe even days. Because she’s passionate about doing no harm.
