What inspired you to begin your company? How did you start?
I knew that synthetic chemicals needed to be avoided due to some health issues that affected my family but when I discovered that natural products were better performers, that’s when I had to share it with the world. What started out as an idea for a green beauty boutique ended up with me getting obsessed with creating my own concoctions. The creativity poured out of me and I knew I found my path.
Tell us something you wish everyone knew about beauty products?
Natural oils, butter, waxes etc are all anti-aging. They have an array of active components such as antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and phytosterols that not only maintain healthy, nourished skin but can also reverse damage. I know from serving customers for 12 years that green beauty users have firmer, softer, and clearer skin than anyone that uses the conventional beauty products. It’s a shame that people have been taught to believe that petrochemicals are going to do anything for them.
Why do you become involved with Causemetics?
Like so many of us, I was disillusioned by the pink ribbon campaigns and the culture of fundraising for breast cancer. The Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund was a breath of fresh air with their ecological principles and funds going directly to patients. When I heard about the organization, I just wanted to support them in any way possible.
How did you choose which of your products to rebrand as a Causemetics product?
I wanted to give them something great so I had this serum formula in my back pocket that I knew would do well. It’s basically a concentrated version of our best seller, Rosey Cheeks Facial Cream and it’s one of our best performers. Anyone that uses it, gets hooked.
What is something exciting you are working on?
We are currently working on a deodorant and a lip balm. Nothing we do is half-ass so you can bet the deodorant will work and the balm will be decadent and amazing.
