The “ecovita” Story
EcoVita skin cream (previously "About Face") was born on Deer Isle, Maine, on our MOFGA certified organic farm. Here, with our family, dedicated interns, a herd of Alpine goats, chickens, pigs, and acres of vegetables, we are committed to growing and providing the highest quality organic food for ourselves, our community and its visitors. We know that ”We are what we eat!” We work in the sun, rain, snow, wind, and salty spruce air, and recognize that we need to feed our skin too, our body’s largest organ. After many trials we developed a skin cream that we feel mirrors our values, imbuing our skin with deeply penetrating nourishment. EcoVita is made with the highest quality organic, approved for organic use & sustainably sourced ingredients, to bring to all ages & skin types, from farmers, fishermen, & families, to sailors, skiers, & CEO’s, an intensely moisturizing cream which protects and delivers a revitalizing healthy glow for luscious radiant skin.
