After being diagnosed with Sjogrens, a painful autoimmune condition, using everyday skin care products suddenly turned into a dangerous gamble. Even the products which claimed to be “natural” would cause increased inﬂammation and muscular pain. I suﬀered constant ugly surprises, no matter how reassuring the label seemed to be. I ended up making an entire skin care line by hand just to keep my own skin healthy, and in the process realized that I could help others who wanted pure, chemical free handcrafted skin care. After sharing with family and friends who were getting results, they started asking for more of the products. I had originally set out to help myself, but was blessed to be able to help others. Soon, customers began calling, and the business started to grow.
