Laguna Herbals was founded to research and develop safe and effective health and wellness products, whose formulations are built on using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients.  All of our ingredients are plant or mineral based and we avoid using any harmful or questionable chemicals.  As an independent company, we will never compromise the principles behind our products and their ability to provide great results. 

All of our products are formulated by a team of herbalists.  Our herbalists receive ongoing education to stay on the cutting edge of industry research to provide consumers with the best quality products.  Every ingredient in our formulas has been carefully studied, researched and selected for its effectiveness and health benefits.  As a socially responsible company, we support organizations with common values and no testing is ever done on animals.  Our mission: to produce all-natural, safe, effective, non-toxic products that work without negatively impacting the environment.

Laguna Herbals is led by Andrea Sands, an Herbalist certified in the didactic, therapeutic and field work of Herbalism.  She has studied under some of the most well known leaders in the field including Rosemary Gladstar, a pioneer in the herbal movement often referred to as the ‘Godmother of American Herbalism’.  As a strong proponent of the healing actions of herbs and natural remedies, Andrea’s research and study spans the last 20 years.  She is dedicated to bringing her knowledge of herbs into the mainstream and developing and producing therapeutic, effective, safe and fun products that adults, teens and children will want to use regularly as part of a healthy and natural lifestyle.

The inspiration behind the founding of Laguna Herbals began with sunscreen.  When Andrea’s daughter was just a toddler, it was difficult to find a sunscreen that didn’t turn her skin beet red and cause itchy rashes.  When her daughter turned 6 months old, Andrea was so excited to use sunscreen and chose a commercial brand in a kid friendly pink bottle reading “safe for babies over 6 months” “#1 pediatrician recommended brand”.  Andrea fully trusted the marketing.  After applying on her daughter and spending a day at the beach, Andrea was concerned that evening when her daughter’s skin looked like it had a bad sunburn and an itchy skin rash on her arms and legs only to realize that it was a reaction she had to the sunscreen itself.  Andrea soon learned that in this “number one pediatrician recommended sunscreen” there were several not very kid friendly chemical ingredients (for more on the effects of harmful sunscreen chemicals click here).  We believe there is no need to use sunscreen with harmful chemicals, so we developed our all natural safe and effective mineral based sunscreen and started Laguna Herbals to continue our mission of developing alternative safe and effective products.
