Beauty is Health and Health is Beauty

I'm an educator, a wife, a mother of two, and a natural skincare maker. I was born in Poland and moved to the US in the 1990s. I brought with me the love of natural beauty and the drive to help people reestablish their connection to the natural world.

A bit of backstory about how I got to make skincare products. I spend my childhood behind the Iron Curtain in communist Poland, where access to many products –including skincare - was limited, information scarce and controlled by the government, travel outside the country difficult if not impossible. What was widely available though was the wisdom of the old and the access to the bountiful nature.

As a child and pre-teen, I would spend every summer at my grandmother’s house in a sleepy hamlet bordering the ancient forest in Eastern Poland. My fondest memories are of my Gradma – Babcia - and me venturing into that forest, foraging for mushrooms, picking sweet wild strawberries and huckleberries and collecting wild herbs and flowers. Once we got back, the real show would begin and I got to watch Babcia perform her herbal rituals: cleaning the herbs; selecting only the best buds, leaves or roots; tying them up for drying in her pantry or infusing them either in oil or pre-boiled well water, and submerging them in strong vodka to make tinctures and extracts which she used for every possible ailment of body and soul.

And then, when she wanted to relax, she’d crush some freshly picked herbs, mix them up with honey and the aloe plant juice from her garden, she’d then put that concoction on her own and my face, and hand me two cucumber slices. Off to the porch we went, masks on our faces, cucumbers on our eyes, and the relaxing began. I was ten years old and my love of natural skin care began. The passing-by villagers, if they caught a glimpse of us, were murmuring something of “witchy ways” and we giggled and giggled…

Since the 1990s, I have been living in the United States, most recently in the sunny and beautiful Southern California. Moving here from the old country was a shock of sorts to say the least. So much color, so much choice, shiny, colorful packaging, everything for sale, every new cream or drug supposedly better than the one from a week, a month, or a year ago. I wanted to try it all, at least what I was able to afford. I always looked at the list of ingredients, but I was also a sucker for grand promises and the glossy advertisement tricks.

It all came to a screeching halt in 2014. Now a wife and mom to two young kids, I was diagnosed with cancer. Out of the blue, but that is not atypical. That’s how cancer usually appears – unexpected, often unexplained, out of the blue. For a year and some I battled the disease with all that the mainstream and complementary medicine had to offer: surgeries, chemo- and radiotherapy, supplementation, and change of diet. I was with blessed with remission… but also left with lots of questions. Why me? Why did I get it? Could I have prevented it? Could I have eaten better, slept more, exercised harder? And what now? Go back to the old ways: eat less than optimally good, apply chemical skin and body care, pollute my life with stress and negative thinking? No way!

My wake-up moment taught me to go back to the basics: live to the fullest, love more, practice gratitude and de-stress, exercise, clean up my diet, and go back to skincare basics by ditching store-bought, expensive, and chemically-overburdened products in favor of natural, gentle and far more effective creations. I realized that in order to stay healthy I needed to change things for good, starting with everything that comes in contact with my body, be it internally or externally.

Memories of my Babcia’s “witchy ways” started flooding in, and I knew in my gut that the secret to health and beauty lies in nature, not in the chemical fillers and preservatives. And so, from detoxing and simplifying my own skin care routine, Oko-Logic was born. I traveled back to the old country and scouted for the purest herbs in Poland. I found, studied, and brought them back and started to infuse carrier oils and aloe juice with them and to make tinctures according to my Babcia’s recipes. I wanted to use only what came from a known source and what I myself put in that jar or bottle: nourishing oils, wild-crafted herbal infusions, therapeutic grade essential oils, sourced directly from nature and committed to sustainable and non-polluting production process. When people started complementing me on my skin and asked what I was using, I would gift them samples of my facial oil and moisturizing serum, and they wanted more and more.

Now, four years later, I am healthy, strong, and thriving, and happy to bring this skincare that I so strongly believe in to the public. By offering it to you, I’m committed to helping your skin achieve that beauty and glow that it was meant to have.
