“The best part about growing an organic skin care business is watching our customers become more aware of their own health in terms of nutrition and fitness and connecting that to physical appearance.  This is a global movement, as customers realize that chemical solvents and preservatives in their beauty routine are the reason they have skin issues in the first place.  Naturally, this line of thinking leads to interest in how those same ingredients impact our environment.  It’s win-win and driving the market towards a healthier world.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Melissa Kreis-Stephens, Founder/CEO
