“As a health-conscious woman and mother I was aware of how important it is to limit the amount of chemicals and processed ingredients in our food, but I had not considered the personal hygiene and cosmetics my family and I were using. In terms of skin care, I put very little effort or concern into having a routine, or the products I was using. Well… I was in for a surprise. After two weeks testing the products, I was sold. My skin has literally changed and has continued improving over the past months, and I am receiving compliments about how healthy and fresh I look. I became much more aware of how many toxins and chemicals we put into ourselves and our families without realizing it, just by showering, applying deodorant, brushing our teeth and keeping our skin hydrated. And the greatest change is that I am now my own boss. I decide when I work, when I take that hike on a Tuesday, or when I spend an afternoon in the park with the kids. The only person I answer to is myself. I grow my business based on the energy and work I decide to dedicate to it.”
