My passion led me to work with brands such as MAC, AVON, and Bobbi Brown, I trained as a makeup artist and hair stylist and graduated with an MBA from Columbia University. It was time to take everything I learned and loved and to create my own brand.
What I found on shelves were either products that worked well but were made with subpar ingredients, or “clean” products that didn’t perform or last; decent formulas with bland packaging and beautiful packages with formulations and color palettes that lacked excitement and ingenuity.
The ingredients I fell in love with brought me back to the heritage I had tried to hide for so long. Bamboo, with its anti-inflammatory, strengthening, and soothing properties. Rice, rich in antioxidants, minerals, and B and E vitamins. Sea Buckthorn, known as the “holy fruit of the Himalayas” and used for generations in Asia for everything from medicine to skin protectant.
