Little did I know that promoting natural skin care would be my life’s journey. I became a mother which has been to date my greatest accomplishment in life. I will never forget the many sleepless nights I suffered. Not because my daughter happened to be nocturnal; my daughter was unfortunately diagnosed with eczema at only two months old. I learnt that this is a skin condition many children suffer with. I quickly searched the market for answers for relief. There were very few products readily available on the market. Almost every product available had additives that further irritate the skin. The condition only got worse and I had to rely on topical steroids treatment. I hated the idea of all of those chemicals penetrating into my baby’s skin- into her little body. I spent hundreds of dollars trying to soothe my daughters irritable skin while also trying to find products that would prevent skin breakdown. I came to understand that her sensitive skin required a great deal of pure moisture.
Believe it or not, one of my daughter’s very first words was “itch”. So, of course as a single mother I became a mother on a very critical mission....
I spent several months understanding the best stuff. The beast stuff happened to be pure, natural oils and butters- each having its own benefit to the skin. This is where the experiment began.
For the past eight years I have been making variations of body creams based on my research, application, and personal testing and results. It had never crossed my mind to develop a business behind this experience although I have been gifting my “body butter” and other homemade products for years. One day I gifted my body butter to a mother who is now considered a loyal customer - for herself and her daughter.
Two years go I decided I would go for it. So far, startup capital has been my biggest challenge.
I am very passionate about creating a natural skin care line that will inspire and help other people. Skin care is very important. The products we put “on” our bodies is just as important as what we put into our bodies.
