For someone unfamiliar with Motherlove, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Motherlove’s dedication to consistent quality means crafting only the finest, purest products, and using certified organic ingredients designed to nurture, soothe, and heal women on their all-important journey of nurturing life. Each of the products for pregnancy, birth, baby, and breastfeeding are time-proven and backed with integrity, wisdom, and an intimate knowledge of herbal remedies.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Motherlove’s founder, Kathryn Higgins, has always had a passion for plants. After moving to the Colorado Rocky Mountains from Minnesota, she began incorporating the wild vegetation from the meadows and forests surrounding her rural canyon home into her daily life – as food, medicine, and as a way of teaching others to honor and love Mother Earth. Unable to find herbal products to support her pregnancy and birthing experiences, Kathryn began making her own and sharing them with other women.
Her creations from the early 1980’s became the seeds of today’s Motherlove products. Over the course of three decades, Motherlove Herbal Company has grown from Kathryn’s kitchen to a large and modern USDA-certified organic manufacturing facility. It also encompasses a 120-acre organic farm on Colorado’s Front Range, where the company continues her legacy of growing organic herbs and educating the community on their uses.
Known for such products as More Milk Plus and Nipple Cream – today Motherlove is the trusted industry leader for safe and effective, organic herbal pregnancy and breastfeeding support products. Recommended by lactation consultants and healthcare providers, Motherlove’s line is sold in hospitals, pharmacies, natural food stores, and specialty retailers worldwide.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Motherlove?
Motherlove Herbal Company’s best-selling product is their Nipple Cream – a 100% certified USDA organic salve that quickly and effectively relieves the discomfort of sore, cracked nursing nipples. It contains no lanolin, is safe for ingestion, and does not need to be washed off prior to nursing.
Motherlove is primarily known for its line of organic liquid herbal extracts that effectively support lactation in a variety of breastfeeding scenarios. Many of its herbal blends have been developed at the request of our customers, lactation consultants, and other health professionals. Motherlove has most recently added malunggay (moringa) and shatavari to its line.
Known as the “miracle tree,” malunggay (moringa) is widely recognized for its nutritional benefits, and has been used for generations by breastfeeding women to support breast milk supply. Shatavari is a rejuvenating Ayurvedic tonic that balances the female hormonal system, including fertility and breast milk production.
What sets Motherlove apart in the healthcare/skincare marketplace?
For over a generation, Motherlove has championed its founder’s vision of safe, organic herbal products, and the “recipes” for its core product line have not changed from the inception of the company almost 30 years ago. When Motherlove first came into the herbal products industry, “organic” and “natural” products were more of the exception than the rule. Motherlove has been at the forefront of the natural products industry, bringing organic products for women into such mainstream stores as Target and Walgreens.
Particularly over the past 10 years, Motherlove has worked hard with the medical community providing information and support so that its products are now recommended by healthcare professionals all over the country, and sold in hundreds of hospitals throughout the US. The consistent quality and efficacy of its products have helped it to maintain a leadership position in the natural products industry.
What can parents expect from Motherlove at the LA Baby Show?
From pregnancy and labor, to breastfeeding and babies, parents can be confident that Motherlove products nurture mother and baby with only the purest ingredients and certified organic herbs. They can trust Motherlove’s organic certification when looking for non-GMO products for their families. Each formula is time proven, and backed with integrity and an intimate knowledge of herbal remedies. It’s all part of Motherlove’s long tradition of creating only the finest, purest products to nurture the parenting journey.
