Emerita

About Us

Emerita® (e-MER-ita) has been a leading brand of natural women’s wellness products since 1978. We’re proud to be women-operated, and our mission is “improving the health and lives of women”—a cause that makes us excited to come to work every day.

In the early days, we marketed natural midlife products through the Transitions For Health catalog and through physicians’ offices. The catalog even appeared in an episode of the TV show Sex & the City.

Then in the 1990s, our flagship progesterone cream, Pro-Gest® Cream, was first introduced at natural food stores, launching a whole category of natural wellness products for mature women. Since then, Emerita® has expanded its offerings to include intimacy, feminine care, health supplements, and skin care, as well. Today, Emerita® products are sold in natural food stores all over the world, as well as through many online retailers.

Emerita® also has a long history as an advocate for women and proponent for education about women's health issues. We tend to make products for needs that many people don’t talk about—menopause, feminine odor, menstruation, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sex at all ages—just to name a few. Topics like these are not always easy to discuss but these are important topics, and someone’s got to start the conversation about them.

Our Philosophy

At Emerita®, we understand that our business affects the environment, and we believe it's our responsibility to care for the health and balance of the planet, just as we have been caring for the health and balance of women for the past 39 years. We incorporate environmentally-friendly practices into our manufacturing, offices, and daily practices whenever possible.

Our Products

We make our products with the highest-quality ingredients available. Our progesterone comes from the Mexican Wild Yam and is converted to pure USP Progesterone which meets the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia for strength, purity, and quality.

Our products do not contain mineral oil, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, or SLS, are never tested on animals and are free of artificial colors and fragrances. And aside from our OH Warming Lubricant (which contains honey) and Hair Removal Pre-Waxed Strips (which contain beeswax), they contain no animal products.

Emerita® tampons are made of 100% organic cotton that is certified organic by the Ethical and Environmental Certification Institute (ICEA) and meets the Global Organic Textile Standard. Plus, the cotton for our tampons and pads is cleansed with a mild hydrogen peroxide solution, which means it is free from traces of dioxins from chlorine bleaching. And our pads contain no cellulose filler nor polymer additives.

Our Practices

  • Our products are scientifically formulated and include select certified organic ingredients
  • Plus, our products are eco-friendly and cruelty-free
  • We use recycled materials in our packaging and, whenever possible, packaging that can be recycled
