TerraNova celebrates Earth Month & Earth Day with the National Parks Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks. Through critical conservation and preservation efforts, the National Parks Foundation protects over 84 million acres of national parks containing plant life that are represented in many TerraNova products that have helped our customers look and feel their best for over 45 years!
This week, TerraNova Vice President, Kathy Saunders, traveled to the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona where blue agave (one of the natural ingredients that we use in our Shea Blossom Shower Cream) can be found.
The blue agave plant has razor sharp leaves protruding from all angles and is used to make tequila, the national drink of Mexico! Salute!
The ancient Aztecs of Mexico prized the agave as a gift from the gods and used the liquid from its core to flavor foods and drinks, heal different skin conditions, and treat all types of wounds. Now, due to the increasing awareness of agave nectar’s many beneficial properties, it is becoming the preferred sweetener of health conscious consumers as well as the preferred ingredient in many skin care products because of its anti-aging properties that help regenerate and rejuvinate the skin’s surface.
Blue agave can be found in TerraNova’s natural bath & body skin care solutions, namely our Shea Blossom Shower Cream. During the month of April, experience the amazing benefits of blue agave for yourself while “greening” your beauty routine with TerraNova. $1 of every product purchased will be donated to the National Parks Foundation to preserve natural resources, like blue agave, for generations to come!
