About

Products made with love... from my family to yours.

I come from a large and close knit family predominately made up of females. Family gatherings are always exciting affairs where a mass of women somehow always inevitably end up crowded in the kitchen catching up on gossip, scribbling recipes, and exchanging reviews on all the new products we have tried out since the last gathering.

The women in my family...like most women, love nothing more than discovering a great product and sharing it with others. Skin and body products were always a favorite topic of discussion. A few members of my family suffer from skin conditions including Rosea, Acne, and oily skin. Because of this, all of us were always on the lookout for affordable products that would be good for different skin types.

Then one day I noticed a pattern...then I noticed this pattern in gatherings with friends and co-workers as well. More than once someone would bring with them a little jar of some wonderful cream or lotion and pass it around for everyone to open, sniff, and gush over. They would rave about how great it was but would then almost always finish with a variation on one of the following statements. “This cream is really great... BUT...it’s really expensive, so what I do is: a) save it only before I have a big date, OR b) mix it with some cheaper product so it goes further, OR c) only use it when it’s on sale. If you chuckled right here then you have either done one of the above yourself or know of someone who has.

The problem is, while having high quality body and skin care products is important; the most important thing is to use it on a regular and consistent basis to give it time to really work. Sporadically using products is akin to going on a crash diet whenever there is a class reunion you need to attend. It will have some benefits, but nothing lasting and in no way will it work better than a regular and consistent regime.

Once I realized this pattern I took a real interest in doing research on what goes into products and what makes some products better than others. I figured that once I narrowed down the specific ingredients that make good products I would be able to identify what products to use. During the course of my research I finally came to realize that it is not what is in products that make them excellent so much as what is NOT in them. Harmful ingredients such as parabens, talc, and allergens such as bismuth oxycholoride turned out to be some of the things causing skin problems.

I also discovered a passion for creating products that are natural and good for your skin. After doing lots of research I created a couple of basic items for myself to try. I was astounded with what a difference I saw in my skin. I shared my creations with my family and they loved it. Their skin started to feel great and look great. They loved it so much that they shared these products with their friends and very soon after I started getting requests to create different products and much more of it. The best part of it was, because I was not a big business that spends millions on advertising, I was able to offer my products that are equivalent in quality to high end designer brands at a much more reasonable price. This means no more watering down products or saving that special cream for only special occasions. My clients were able to benefit from the goodness of my skin and body products on a daily basis and reap the benefits of high quality ingredients.

I would now like to extend this experience to you. You can be assured that I only offer the highest quality products as my products were designed for the people I love most.
