After discovering that her daughters were each suffering from skin sensitivities and having tried many products to help them with no real success, Olivia Gynell decided to set herself a challenge.
“I tried many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ products and found no real success. I became frustrated with the number of products that marketed themselves as ‘pure’ and ‘natural’ that were deceptively filled with toxic fillers, plastic microbeads and other synthetics,” said Olivia.
“I was determined to continue a life that was carefree and adventurous, without the worry of what reactions were going to burden the health of my children next. I wanted to be free of having to read labels endlessly and grew tired of having to call companies for full disclosure of ingredients,” Olivia continued.
“So I bid farewell to that world, and began my journey. The health of my family, the environment and a strong desire for honesty and transparency was ignited. My challenge and goal was to create targeted lifestyle products that were nurturing, mindful, and responsible.”
The result is a range of organic skin products that are good for your skin while remaining kind to the environment.
