Kristin will share with us principles important in starting your own business and what she’s learned starting Root Beauty.
Here’s an excerpt from Kristin on her website:
“Who is Root Beauty?
Root Beauty is a homegrown natural, organic skin care business born out of a desire to help my fellow human beings live a less toxic existence. Founded in the busy urban streets of Los Angeles, we are a company that seeks to help you find a more simple, natural, organic way to care for your skin.
Why did I start Root Beauty?
To quote the famous philosopher Plato “Necessity, who is the mother of invention.” I started to read the labels on the “natural” skin care products that I was applying to my face and body and realized that I could not read over half the chemicals on the back of the bottles. For years I have been eating organic and been extremely particular about what I ingest but I was not caring for my largest organ – my skin. I was applying toxic chemicals without a second thought. I began researching the healing power of essential oils and benefits of natural oils that have been used for centuries by women around the world. For years I created products for myself and friends and family but never thought about selling them, I just wanted toxic chemical free skin care for myself.
A little about me:
For many years I have been on a journey of natural organic simplicity, but my flower power is a little more city than rural commune. You might call me a bit of an urban hippie.
I have lived in Los Angeles for over a decade and love the city with all its quirks and diverse culture. For all the concrete jungle that surrounds us, there is still a subculture here in the city that is seeking to get back to the basics of life. For us urban hippies, the fountain of youth just might be in our kitchen instead of in a jar of unpronounceable chemicals.
I started this journey buying organic produce and my husband has been a willing participant as we have cleaned our diet and our house of toxins. We are on a journey to simplify and get to the root of what life is all about. As pretentious as it might sound, it’s true. I don’t want to consume without being aware.
Root Beauty is simple, yet superior, organic skincare products. I want to offer you an alternative to the toxic and chemical laden products that are sold in stores across America. Your skin is your largest organ and I want to help you keep it beautiful and healthy. My organic products will nourish your skin and you can also be sure that they have never been tested on animals.
Regardless of where you live I encourage you to embrace your inner urban hippie by getting to the root of your beauty. Check out our product pages where you will natural, organic beauty solutions for your face, feet and skin.“
