"Growing up I seemed to have always had hormonal problematic skin and there was this stigma against using any products that contained any sort of oil in them. I tried going the holistic and natural approach and my skin seemed to react kindly. It is easy to see that what we use on our skin ends up inside our bodies. So it is important to pay close attention to the ingredients in our skin care products. If the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances, those ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. The majority of mainstream body care products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants. So around age 25, I started creating my own batches of oil in stock bottles, often giving them to friends and family. As a graphic designer I have always enjoyed the process of branding products and story telling, so I thought why not make this into it's own brand. I really want to bring the simplicity of organic natural products in as few products as possible to women that don't want to spend all day searching for what they can and cannot put on their skin. A regimen should not be another element that stresses out our already busy lives."
