My name is Abbie and I am a small town country girl from Nova Scotia, Canada. I started making my own line of natural skin and hair care products over 12 years go. I just wanted there to be something available to people that, not only worked really well, but was also 100% natural and safe to use. I originally started this for myself because I desperately needed something to help my own skin, but in the process I quickly realized how important a product line like this would be to so many other people. (You can read my full story below)
I've been setting up at markets and doing home parties for the past several years but recently felt it was time for me to branch out and become available to everyone else. I know all about inventing and creating new products, the different formulating processes involved, and how to make my own liquid botanical extracts etc. but when it comes to the online world, I haven't the slightest clue what I'm doing. So that is where Sarah comes in. My sister completely took the reigns on advertising and putting together this website to make my products available across Canada and the US and together we bring 100% natural, safe, and effective skin care products to you!
I'm always working on new products so if you have any suggestions of things you would be interested in, please let me know. Also, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's My Story
"I started this all about 10 years ago. I was so frustrated with my skin and literally nothing seemed to help it. I had tried pretty much everything you could buy at a store, and plenty of things that were available online too.
I honestly wouldn't even want to try to figure out how much money I had spent (and wasted) over the years.
My skin was so sensitive and so easily irritated - everything made me break out! Lots of times I even had chemical burns on my face from different products. My skin was oily and acne prone with horrible dry patches at the same time - it was always red and irritated. It truly got to the point where I couldn't stand it.
One day, was sitting on the bathroom floor cleaning out the cabinet underneath the sink. I completely filled two grocery bags with skin care products to throw away. Almost all of them were barely used... things I had bought with such high hopes that 'This would be the one that finally fixed everything for me,' but instead I was disappointed every time. Truthfully some things didn't have any effect, but most of those products actually made the problem worse.
I just sat there looking at these two full bags and I honestly just felt defeated. I was like 'this can't be it... this can't be the best it ever gets.'
All I wanted was a face cream that moisturized my skin but didn't make me break out. It didn't seem like too much to ask!!!
I started pulling products out of the bag and reading the ingredients to see if I could find any similarities, so I could figure out where I was going wrong. I really had no idea what I was looking for but I just felt like I was so out of options.
It was at that moment when I decided - 'I'm just gonna make my own face cream.... how hard can it be?"
Well, it turned out to be very hard - I mean I didn't have the tiniest clue how to begin, but that was the first time I can remember feeling relieved because finally I was in control of making my skin better.
I started reading every single book I could get my hands on. Books about cosmetic ingredients, essential oils, all the different formulation processes, making your own botanical extracts, and on and on. I read at least 4 hours a day for 2 years before I tried making anything. I wanted to really know what I was doing and I really wanted to be prepared.
First I made my face cream and I was so in love with it, I wanted everyone I knew to try it. They all loved it too, and that's when I thought - hey, maybe I could sell this. I figured there were probably lots of other people out there who were just as frustrated with their skin and were struggling to find something that worked.
I felt like I owed it to people to create an entire product line that could be used without ever needing to question what they were using.
I wanted there to be something available that worked amazingly well and was completely safe in every single way.
I could never find it.. so I decided to create it and that's how
