ABOUT GREEN FOOT MAMA

Headshot Lisa

Hello, I’m Lisa.  I was raised near the sea by my organic veggie-growing, whole-food loving, hippy astrologer, naturopath Mum.  My childhood was free-range.  We lived in several hippy communes where I learned the virtues of nutrient-dense organic foods, self-sufficiency, and natural wellness. I also observed the healing power of Mother Nature.

Several decades later, having forged a career in the fast-paced world of IT, spanning London, New York and San Francisco, I was ready to settle down and raise a family.

Or at least I thought I was ready.  I had trouble getting pregnant and, when I did conceive, I suffered painful miscarriages.

It took some soul-searching to realise my mind and body were not in balance.  I needed to return to the natural living principles of my youth to heal myself.  I turned my back on polluted city living and the long hours and poor food habits of my stressful IT career to emigrate to coastal Australia.

Now I embrace a more natural lifestyle – nourishing my body and mind with good food, yoga and meditation, and renewing my connection with Mother Nature on a daily basis.

I’m so glad I trusted my instincts.  My gorgeous daughter was born the day before my 43rd birthday… and actually that is how I first discovered Green Foot Mama – while looking for organic baby skin care products for my little one.

Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me and thank you for embracing Green Foot Mama.  I look forward to getting to know you all.

Our Story

Green Foot Mama was born from a mother’s need to find natural, pure and organic products for her daughters’ skin sensitivities.  She was shocked at how harmful many of the brands we know and ‘trust’ are and used her background as a whole foods chef and alternative therapies practitioner to create a range we can all have faith in.

Our Values

Green Foot Mama organic moisturising balms are so natural, they are almost edible, and are safe and suitable for all ages and skin types.

We’re proud that our products are made using certified organic, fair trade and natural ingredients, are free of nasty chemicals, and made by human hands using minimal processing.  Our products also provide the energetic benefits of Australian Native botanicals for an holistic approach to body care.

All of our supplies and ingredients are ACO, Eco-cert or Fair Trade certified. We work directly with producing families so that from soil to shelf we can guarantee ethical, sustainable and responsible practices. Even our grow-to-love-em jars are made from 100% recycled PET plastic and use 30% less energy to recycle (although its easy to find ways to reuse them too) and the processes we use have been developed so that we are ‘no-waste’.

Our products meet NICNAS standards and our Organic Sun Balm is ISO 24443 and ISO 24444 compliant.  We have been independently SPF tested and registered accordingly.

It is both a pleasure and a privilege to offer you quality products that can be trusted.  By choosing Green Foot Mama, you become part of a worldwide movement treading a path towards earth-positive change – ethical, sustainable and cruelty free.
