STURGEON BAY, WI. –  Trillium Herbal Company, Inc. announces the launch of OGbaby and OGmama, organic body care products bearing the coveted USDA Certified Organic Seal.

Now available for purchase, OGbaby and OGmama are designed with the knowledge that 60% of everything that goes on the skin is absorbed into the body.  With concerns on the rise over the effects (ADD, cancer, infertility) of certain ingredients commonly found in conventional body care products, Trillium developed OGbaby and OGmama as a body care option for families that want to avoid exposure to harmful petrochemical and synthetic ingredients. 

The ‘OG’ brand, which stands for “organic”, uses only ingredients allowed under the strict USDA NOP guidelines and therefore is free of all questionable ingredients including parabens, phthalates, petroleum, propylene glycol, synthetic fragrances, sodium lauryl sulfates, formaldehyde and contaminants produced during manufacturing such as 1,4-Dioxane.

“As a mother of three I am personally concerned with the ingredients that my children inhale, ingest and absorb.  As a manufacturer of personal care, I consider it my greatest obligation to ensure the ultimate safety and purity of all of the products I create.” stated Karen Ciesar, Trillium’s Founder and Formulator.

In order to display the USDA symbol, OGbaby and OGmama are under stringent requirements from the NOP (National Organic Program) to contain at least 95% organic ingredients, with the remaining natural ingredients strictly specified by the rule.  The USDA symbol means that the highest level of scrutiny has been applied to these products. 

With ingredients at the cornerstone of both ‘OG’ lines, all the individual products contain a full disclosure label.  Fully disclosing ingredients along with their INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) counterparts empowers consumers to see precisely what they are getting.

Ingredients are generally listed on the back of the label.  The ‘OG’ brand considers ingredients to be the central focus of their products.   Ingredient information is prominently placed in “Nutrition Facts” fashion on the front of the label, an industry first.  The ‘OG’ brand labels make referencing ingredients faster and easier.

OGmama was developed for expecting and post-pregnancy mamas.  The four products in the line, Gentle Soap, Belly Polish, Belly Butter and Belly Oil, are based on a skin soothing botanical infusion and are scented with Organic Lavender.  The result is an aromatic collection of moisturizing products that enhance the skin’s resiliency and help prevent stretch marks.

OGbaby has two distinct categories, Really Fragrance Free and Breathe Free Tea Tree.  Really Fragrance Free was designed for use on preemies, newborns and sensitive children.  It has three products in the range: Gentle Soap, Moisture Oil and Barrier Balm.  The sweet aroma of these products is derived from the Chamomile infusion in Organic Olive Oil. 

Breathe Free Tea Tree is a therapeutic aromatherapy line designed to help alleviate congestion brought on by allergies, colds or flu.  Designed to be gentle enough for babies, it is also effective for the entire family.  These products contain Eucalyptus Radiata and Tea Tree essential oils, which are helpful in assisting the outward flow of mucous to ease congestion.

All OGmama and OGbaby products are currently available from Trillium Herbal Company at and range in price from $9.98 through $19.98, and in Health Food, Eco Spa and Green Lifestyle stores nationwide.
