About Goddess Garden

Goddess Garden is a certified organic skincare company, created by a mom for her daughter, whose skin reacted poorly to conventional sunscreens and body products. The company began out of necessity. Nova Covington began making all her family’s skincare in her kitchen, using all-natural, pure botanical ingredients that were effective and safe for her baby daughter. She felt if her family needed clean products, other families did as well. Together with her husband, Paul, Goddess Garden was created.

Today, Nova, Paul and the entire Goddess Garden team, make products that are certified organic and free from harsh chemicals that can cause skin reactions, hormone disruption and contribute to the destruction of the reefs. Goddess Garden, at its core, is a family. They have a parent-like commitment to care for their customers and the planet. Behind every decision they make are a set of guiding core values that ensure their business leaves a minimal footprint, and a positive impact. And they always keep in mind the best interests of their customers, their employees, their communities and the planet!

Goddess Garden is most commonly known for its organic, reef-safe, non-nano sunscreen, but they also offer a complete line of certified organic skin care and essential oils. Plus, all products are made onsite in Boulder County, Colorado, and feature recyclable packaging!

We became a B Corp because we’ve been trying to “be the change we seek in the world” since we made our very first product in our kitchen. Transparency is in everything we do—from the sheerness of our sunscreen to the disclosure of our business practices. B Corp allows us to make that a legal guideline and set goals, guaranteeing our business will make the world a better place.

The Change We Seek®

The Goddess Garden team knows everything is connected. If something isn’t good for people, it’s usually not good for the planet either. They are also realistic. Products exist to solve a problem or fill a need, and doing without would cause a void. That’s where Goddess Garden comes in. Their goal is to solve problems without creating new ones, and offer products that allow consumers to be conscientious without compromise. All Goddess Garden products serve a practical purpose, but behind each and every thing they produce are guiding principles that ensure none of their profits are built on the destruction of the Earth or people’s health.

Created by a mom for her daughter, Goddess Garden only makes products they’d use in their own homes and on their own families. And they offer a culture that is centered around families so no one ever loses their focus: making life a little easier and a lot safer for the ones they care about most!

What makes us a better company?
