These days, it’s not an unreasonable request to want pure ingredients with zero harmful side effects when it comes to your skincare—cleansers, lotions, and creams included. So, why is it that many mothers appear to be forever on the search for quality, good-for-you products? If you’re asking yourself the very same question, allow us to introduce you to one of our favorite fresh, and non-toxic brands: Ursa Major. Whether you’re pregnant, nursing, or simply a fan of clean beauty, Ursa Major checks all of the prerequisite beauty boxes.

“Once you learn about the unhealthy ingredients, the shortcuts, and the mistruths in the ‘mainstream’ beauty world, you just cannot continue to use those products or support the companies who make them. You feel betrayed and pretty angry, at least I did,” says Emily Doyle, Co-Founder of the brand. “This was my motivation for Ursa Major. With my partner Oliver, we decided to change this dynamic and offer a healthy, trustworthy alternative.”

Ursa Major strictly uses all-natural ingredients. And, you won’t find any of the same boring scent profiles, either. The entire line entices users with its invigorating and fresh essential oils that never overwhelm the senses, especially for those pregnant mamas-to-be with ultra-sensitive noses. Powerfully packed with nature’s most effective ingredients, Ursa Major offers an dynamic and refreshing alternative to the synthetic chemicals and toxicity found in many skincare lines today. Take a closer look at some of Ursa Major’s star products for mamas of all types in our slideshow below, and enter RIGHT HERE to win all five—Fantastic Face Wash, No B.S Deodorant, 20 pack Essential Face Wipes, Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum, & Golden Hour Recovery Cream—a $172 value!

If you just can’t wait to get your hands on the brand, Ursa Major is offering 15% off your first order, plus free shipping to Mother readers with the code “MOTHERLOVE”. (One use per person. Offer valid through 12/31/2017. Not valid on auto-ship orders.)
