Actress Melanie Mayron launches Mayron’s Good Baby skin care line
LOS ANGELES Director, writer and Emmy award-winning actress Melanie Mayron has launched a new natural skin care line called Mayron’s Good Baby.
Before the birth of her children 10 years ago, Mayron approached her chemist father, David, who has more than 45 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, about formulating a natural diaper and barrier cream that was safe enough to use at every diaper change. After the debut of the diaper cream formula, Mayron and her father worked to develop a number of other products that will be released in winter and spring 2009.
“The entire Mayron’s Good Baby natural skin care line is free from synthetic fragrances, paraben, sodium lauryl sulfate and DEA,” Mayron said. “It was a wonderful experience to work with my father on the creation of these natural products.”
Mayron’s career highlights including acting roles in television and films, most recently in “Lipstick Jungle” on NBC. She is also known for the role of “Melissa” in “Thirtysomething.” the award-winning indie film “Girl Friends” Costa Gavras’ “Missing,”and her own “Sticky Fingers,” which she co-produced, co-wrote and starred in. She recently directed episodes of “Tell Me You Love Me” and “In Treatment” on HBO, “90210,” “Lipstick Jungle,” and “Greek,” and the features, “The Babysitter’s Club” and “Slap Her She’s French.”
New Aura Cacia Fair Trade Certified Organic Cocoa Butter hits market
URBANA, Iowa Frontier Natural Products Co-op, which offers a full line of natural and organic products under such brand names as Aura Cacia and Simply Organic, has officially announced the launch of its Aura Cacia Fair Trade Certified Organic Cocoa Butter.
“This is the first 100 percent pure cocoa butter featuring organic, Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter available in the marketplace,” said Mindy Seiffert, Aura Cacia’s senior brand manager. “So not only do consumers receive a direct benefit for themselves, but their purchase also supports better lives for farming families through fair prices, direct trade, community development and environmental stewardship.”
Aura Cacia has partnered with La Cooperative Agraria Industrial Naranjillo Limitada to offer the Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter. According to Frontier Natural Products Co-op, the partnership was chartered in response to the excessively low prices the farmers traditionally received for their cocoa crops. Today, Naranjillo is the largest producer of organic cocoa in Peru. The Fair Trade certification has helped Naranjillo ensure that workers receive fair wages, work in safe conditions and improve the local communities and infrastructure for the co-op’s families.
The new Aura Cacia Trade Certified Cocoa Butter is packaged in a recyclable container and has a suggested retail price of $7.45.
