   MEET THE TEAM

 

Our team comprises two sisters while in college on a journey to heal and bring holistic care to others. Our founder and CEO, Lounda Charelus, a college student who visionalized the business from a personal experience and Johann Charelus . After getting cystic acne due to hormonal imbalance, our founder was inspired by traditional Haitian herbs used by our parents and grandparents alike to rectify her ACNE issue. With much research, she became a self-taught herbalist with about 6 years of experience. She founded this company out of necessity for herself to boost her skin care, confidence, and mental well-being while she was simultaneously experiencing  health issues. Our founder became an avid advocate of not only skin care, but holistic healing and mindfulness in taking care of the mind, body, and soul. At the root of this business’s foundation is her story and the people she first extended to share it with. At the root of our vision is service to others to share our own personal journey, triumph and losses with our skin care journey, and bring awareness to holistic care.   She is responsible for all production, handling and shipping. 

Johann Charelus, is the Chief Operations Officer,  she supports the company through marketing initiatives, funding acquisition, and consultations through feedback. She also looks after the day-to-day activities, facilitate communication, promote marketing strategies and brand awareness, and help curate our social media platforms. She prioritizes marketing efforts and outreach, such as managing the brand ambassador initiative and seeking partnerships and philanthropic opportunities in the community. She helps ease our workload tremendously to focus on creating our products and what we're passionate about. Johann helps keep the company centered and grounded  by maintaining brand integrity and increasing sales and outreach through marketing efforts. She keeps us organized and focused!

Our Shea butter body moisturizer has a unique scent directly from the all natural herbs added and will leave your body glistening!

Every purchase also contributes to our initiative to encourage, empower, and help each other heal through body care, arts, and wellness. We have used our social media, our website, blog, Youtube channel, and podcast to promote our ideals of wellness and empowerment through a positive environment which seeks to help our community thrive, practice conscious mindfulness and self-care rituals with healing properties. We encourage our niche to connect to their inner self to approach healing their body holistically.

Care instructions for Face masks

Step 1: Apply to face
Before applying your turmeric face mask, remove any makeup or impurities, make sure your face is clean. Do not wear your favorite garments. Apply with a face tool!

Step 2: Rest
Allow the mask to sit on your face for about 10 to 15 minutes. your soon-to-be brighter, healthier skin awaits. We suggest using mask 3 times a week for quicker results.

Step 3: Rinse
Rinse off the mask with warm water. You can also use a washcloth; but remember, it will get stained. Speaking of staining, don’t be alarmed if your skin is still looking a little yellow after you remove the mask. The turmeric might temporarily stain your skin if you’re pale, but it will go away in a few hours

Warning ⚠️: do not wear mask for more than 20 min

How do I store my face mask?

It is said that:
Spirulina Powder has an expiration date of about 2 years after when unopened and a shelf life of 3 months after opening.
As for healing body spirulina algae masks, please refrigerate. Masks can last up to 7 months with proper care!
Mask can get dried out if not kept in cool temperature. Masks can be kept at room temperature but will need to be closely monitored. Masks is all natural and does not contain any preservatives, thus if neglected, it will get dry up, and go bad.
Always mix face mask before applying and use a face tool to apply.

Care instructions for oil serums

The oil serums are multifunctional, they can be applied as hair oil, face serums, cuticle oils, body oil and even to moisturize your beard. The serums can be used as an after shower oil, for soft skin or as a moisturizer added to your skin care regime.

Use the dropper to apply 2 to 3 drops to forehead and cheeks and massage oil into the skin for a fresh, dewy finish. Less is more, so let your skin soak up the oil. Oils can be used to prep skin before applying makeup, oils can be mixed with most face creams, since it is all natural and does not contain any chemicals.
Oil serums can be applied to face before bedtime or during the day.

How are the oil serums different?

The Rosehip oil is made entirely out of rosehip oil and dry rose petals.

The Aloe Vera and hibiscus oil is made up of diluted natural aloe Vera oil and dry hibiscus.

Hibiscus is made up of extra virgin oil or avocado oil and dry hibiscus leaves and it has a very sweet smell because of the hibiscus.

The Lavender body oil, is made up of extra virgin oil, dry lavender and lavender essential oils. I suggest using it as a body oil, on stretch marks and as an after shower oil to seal in moisture.

Skin benefits ✨

Rosehip is high in fatty acids which helps balances oily skin. It's antibacterial, it promotes healing and it can help reduce skin pigmentation and fights acne.

Hibiscus is a natural AHAS, a natural acid known for exfoliating, help control breakouts, and also moisturizes it improves elasticity flexibility, that's why it's known as the Botox plant.

Aloe Vera is a natural moisturizer, it is an antioxidant, that contains Vitamin A and C.

Lavender lessens redness and irritation,reduces inflammation and is antifungal.

Skin types

Skin gets oily due to a lack of linoleic acid, rosehip oil is high in fatty acids which can help balance natural oils. If you have an oily/combination skin, I’d recommend rosehip and aloe Vera, since aloe Vera absorbs and help seals in moisture.
For sensitive skin, our rosehip oil is a great staple for any skincare routine.

How to get rid of stains on clothes?

When we apply our skincare products occasionally our towels get stained.
Here are 3 ways to get rid of stains.
Submerge stained fabric in white vinegar for an hour. Apple cider vinegar will make clothes yellow but it works too! Corn starch, baking soda are also alternative ways you can remove stains. You can use a spray bottle to spray stain with white vinegar.

What is my waist line size?

Use a measuring tape. Measure where you want the beads, since it can be worn in many positions. Measure in an upright position, wrap measuring tape around your waist, towards your navel and make sure it’s snug. Then, read the measurements in Inches. For accuracy, we recommend you do it again! I hope that helps! ✨☀️
