I was not a college student kinda girl at age 18, and so I found another path to success, I WORKED A LOT ! Lol. As a make-up artist, at the department stores in cosmetics, as a marketing manager for Chanel, and as a sales rep, then as a licensed Esthetician for many years, As a skin care formulator, and professional educator in natural skin care products and cosmetics I feel I have the knowledge and experience to assist you in your journey to beautiful healthy skin. If you suffer from rosacea, as I do, I have tips and advice that I can share. If you suffer from the awful skin disease known as acne, please look at some of my products and the life style tips I offer to help you clear your skin up. It is a journey, but it can be done.
For the past 30 years, I have worked for skin care/cosmetic companies
I became an esthetics instructorfor Aveda and traveled with and for the company in the 1990’s. The professional education they constantly provided me with in natural health solutions, essential oils, plant extracts and healthy PLANET living is priceless. The knowledge never leaves you! I learned many amazing things about skin and plant extracts, but I also learned about the harmful chemicals in nearly all skin care / cosmetics and the effect they have on our health. Petrochemicals, parabens, phthalates. In example, a chemical called propyl-paraben is toxic and affects estrogen levels in men and women. It is in deodorants, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, food etc.
Propylene glycol is another chemical found in our daily lives, and it is an ingredient used in anti freeze. The FDA acknowledges that propylene glycol can cause kidney damage when consumed in large doses and skin irritation when it comes in direct contact with flesh. In the U.S., products can contain five grams of propylene glycol for every kilogram of body weight. European formulas, however, can only contain .1 gram per kilogram. Strangely enough, it is found in many foods! I recently picked up a baked good item at Publix Grocery, and the 4th ingredient was Propylene Glycol?
I do find most disturbing was that products for infants - babies and children contain these awful ingredients. Companies lie to you, and use the word "Natural" when only 5% of the product may be natural They are allowed to do it!.
Phthalates (pronounced "thah-lates") are found in many scented and cosmetic products, where they stabilize the fragrance, soften the skin, increase spreadability, and enhance the absorption. Sadly you'll find them in nail polish (where they help prevent chipping), deodorants, hair spray (where they prevent stiffness), perfumes, lotions, creams, lipstick, and powders (including baby lotions, creams, and powders). The chemicals from phthalates are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream.
If you have ever gotten a headache for no reason while shopping at the mall, or in working in your office, or after visiting with someone who had on perfume or cologne, it is likely from the perfumes, fragrances, or harsh cleaners that were used in the building. Once our olfactory system (in your nose) is overloaded, it cannot keep up, cannot filter out the toxins, and we get a headache from the stress on our system. Synthetic fragrances-scents-perfumes-dryer sheets-house fresheners like febreeze-aerosol sprays-scented candles are responsible at times for your sinus problem, headache, stomach ache, eye irritation, cough etc.
My products (formulations) are tried and true beauty recipes that are highly effective, and safe for you and your family. There is nothing more important is there? Please note that many of the products are Vegan, Organic Ingredients, and ALL are cruelty free & non gmo. Fair Trade is very important to me and so I only buy Fair Trade shea butter, coconut oil and other plant oils .
I will add new products as months go by, and I look forward to offering purely good skin food to “fix” your skin challenges.
I work from a small IMMACULATELY CLEAN commercial kitchen/lab, and these products are professionally hand made Mon-Fri , with safely monitored pH levels and purity.
