The Inspiration for Goddess Garden

15 years ago, Nova Covington discovered her baby daughter was allergic to the harsh chemicals in conventional skincare products. Armed with her background as an herbalist and the support of her biochemist husband, she decided to find a better way.

Using organic plant-based ingredients and pure minerals, Nova created sunscreen that was safe for her baby’s sensitive skin and free from harsh synthetic chemicals. Along the way, she discovered that those same chemicals are also contributing to the disappearance of our coral reefs, a crucial marine habitat.

This reality inspired Nova to forge ahead and grow Goddess Garden, so she could make a difference with products that are good for people and the planet.
