MEET THE FOUNDER
Working with nature to make skin and bath care is one of my earliest childhood memories. Creating "perfume" out of flowers, water and a childlike charm (a much needed ingredient!), convinced my neighbors to become instant customers. We all know eating toxic materials is harmful to our inner organs, but we tend to neglect the largest organ- our skin. Our skin is under attack by vast majority of products on the market brimming with fillers, preservatives, and toxic ingredients. My fascination with natural beauty is still childlike- there is always something new to discover and play with. As a child I was creating a magical potion and I continue to feel that excitement working with the earth's natural ingredients, refining my "potions" over the decades- sampling products for myself, my child, and clients. My obsession with organic skin and body care flourished after opening a wellness spa in Santa Barbara, CA. Most of my clients were women coming to see me for body slimming treatments, reiki, and skin rejuvenation, so it came naturally to start creating effective solutions to address their skin and body care needs. This line grew from years of need, trial & error, and vast research to provide next-level solution for healthy, safe, non-toxic skin care, using my experience as an eco-beauty lover, spa owner, mother, and healer to nurture the skin and uplift the soul.

AHA Complex: Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids of Apple extract and Sugar extract exfoliate skin cells are combined by breaking down the intercellular glue-like substance that helps bind skin cells together with Green Tea which acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory for the skin.
Antioxidants: Vitamins, amino acids and other natural substances that fight free radicals to prevent oxidation. In biological systems, the normal processes of oxidation produce free radicals, which are aggressive, unstable, oxygen-containing molecules that have lost an electron and need to steal one from another molecule to regain stability. This creates a chain reaction damaging each cell involved. Free radicals damage cell membranes and normal cellular metabolism. This cell damage leads to premature aging, increased skin sensitivity, irritation, age spots and dryness. Applied topically, antioxidants neutralize free radicals before they are able to attach themselves to the cell membrane and damage the cell.
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) – DMAE has the ability to stimulate neurotransmitters that are required for proper mental function. When topically applied to the skin, DMAE stimulates acetylcholine release, triggering a response within the muscles of the face that creates firmer facial tone and tightening of sagging skin. It is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, showing a noticeable improvement in the skin within 20 minutes of application. DMAE has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – A natural sulfur compound found in every cell in the body and also in major amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants and hormones, that are essential for health.
