As a 14-year survivor of stage 3 neuroendocrine cancer and busy mom of 5, I am so proud to share my story with Ron and Lisa from the Healthy Home Hacks podcast! Click on the image to access.
When I discovered my cancer had strong environmental origins, I began asking a lot of questions especially of the beauty cosmetics industry: ‘Why should a lipstick contain lead? Should a foaming cleanser release formaldehyde? And, why is the cosmetics industry the least regulated in the United States, with no laws requiring the FDA to monitor the ingredients of cosmetics?’
Frustrated by the lack of truth in beauty products and instead of wasting boatloads of money on plastic tubes filled with carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and empty promises, I took beauty into my own hands, figuratively and literally. The result? A fully transparent, high-end, natural, plant-based skincare line that’s good for the earth and your skin.
