Meaning “living herbs” in Italian, Erbaviva was born in LA in 1996 as an organic skincare line and built on principles of working in harmony with nature and giving back to the global community. Founders Robin Brown and Anna Cirronis channeled their passion for pure ingredients to start the brand when they realized there were no healthy, organic products on the market that were safe enough for even a baby’s highly delicate and absorbent skin. Today, the Erbaviva collection features re-vamped Mommy-to-Be and Baby lines, as well as a full range of organic deodorants, body washes and lotions, oils and more.
