For many years, I have been on a journey of natural organic simplicity. But my flower power is a little more city than rural commune. You might call me a bit of an urban hippie.
I have lived in Los Angeles for over a decade and love the city with all its quirks and diverse culture. For all the concrete jungle that surrounds us, there is still a subculture here that is seeking to get back to the basics of life. For us urban hippies, the fountain of youth just might be in our kitchen instead of in a jar of unpronounceable chemicals.
I started this journey buying organic produce and my husband has been a willing participant as we have cleaned our diet and our house of toxins. We are on a journey to simplify and get to the root of what life is all about. As pretentious as it might sound, it’s true. I don’t want to consume without being aware. I started by asking myself questions about the products I was using. What am I putting on my skin every day? Can I pronounce the ingredients listed on the back of the jar/bottle/container of my favorite products? Have they been tested on animals?
The answers to these questions made me realize that I needed better products. I started making my organic natural skin care products in my kitchen because I couldn’t find simple organic products to purchase. Plato said, “Necessity is the mother of all invention” and it’s very true.
I became a kitchen chemist making skin care products for myself and soon I began sharing them with my friends and co-workers. The response was overwhelmingly positive. They encouraged me to sell the products, but at first I thought I wouldn't even know how to start. Thankfully they didn’t give up on me and thanks to this support, today I am offering you natural organic skin care products that contain ingredients you can easily read.
