Company Description: Emerita (e-MER-ita) has been making natural health and wellness products for women since 1978, when it began manufacturing Pro-Gest, the Original Natural Progesterone Cream. Pro-Gest is the industry-leading brand of progesterone cream - and the only one that has been clinically-tested. Emerita makes products for:
perimenopause & menopause
sexual vitality
feminine care
skin care

Emerita products are manufactured to highest-quality standards, utilizing organic, natural and botanical ingredients. All Emerita products are paraben-free, and they are never tested on animals. Emerita is a woman-owned and operated company located in Portland, Oregon. - Emerita

Company History: "We began as a family business in 1978, which daughter Sharon MacFarland took over in 1983 at the age of 23. Since then Sharon built the company into Emerita: A leading national brand of natural wellness products for women.

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

Then in the 1990s, our flagship progesterone cream, Pro-Gest, was introduced at natural food stores, launching a whole category of natural wellness products for women. Pro-Gest was The Original Progesterone Cream™, and is still the leading national brand - the only progesterone cream that has been clinically studied. And it is mentioned in Dr. John R. Lee's book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause." Since then, Emerita has expanded its natural products offerings to include sexual vitality, feminine hygiene, health supplements and skin care products, as well.

Emerita products are now sold in natural food stores across the country, including Whole Foods Markets. They're also available through numerous online retailers and health care providers." - Emerita

Quote From the Owner: "Need a quote." - Owner

Most Popular Products:

For over 30 years, women have looked to Pro-Gest for help with a myriad of discomforts associated with hormone imbalance during perimenopause and menopause. Things like hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, irritability or decreased sex drive.

Phytoestrogen Cream
Phytoestrogens can be a good companion to our Pro-Gest natural progesterone cream when it comes to helping achieve hormone balance. That's because during perimenopause and menopause, your natural levels of both progesterone and estrogen change. And for many women that leads to complaints such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness and mood swings.

Feminine Personal Moisturizer
Our Personal Feminine Moisturizer is specially formulated by women for women to provide comfort and help restore delicate vaginal balance during perimenopause and menopause.

Menopause Plus Formula
Our menopause supplement includes the phytoestrogens Chaste Tree Berry Extract, Dandelion Leaf, Black Cohosh and Red Clover to help soothe breast tenderness and promote the reduction of hot flashes and night sweats.
