My Story and why I can relate to you-
Hi I’m CJ and I’m a research scientist. When I was younger, I couldn’t have cared less as to what I put on my skin. As long as it was cheap and looked okay, that was good enough for me. Now, as I’ve gotten older (and seen what’s happened to my friends and my mother’s skin) I realised that I needed to be more conscious about what I used.
However, at first, it was just about buying better, or what I though was better (ie. more expensive products ), and perhaps being a bit more conscious about what I was eating. Although it wasn’t until I hit thirty that I finally started making real and serious changes to my life.
I began a lifestyle change by switching over to organic foods, exercising regularly and making more of my own meals (I was a devote to the frozen dinner), and generally trying to drink more water -and less diet coke. Then, it hit me, if I’m being good about what I’m putting in me, what about what I’m putting on me?
As a scientist, I started by doing my research, and noticed that many of the ingredients that are present in my normal skincare and cosmetics are either harmful for my skin, or actually just didn’t do what they claimed.
I also realized that many people were unaware of what was actually in their skincare products and cosmetics. So I created this website and started sourcing makeup brands with organic ingredients that are not only good for you, but good for the environment.
Along with some friends and associates, I wanted to promote better awareness and to recommend awesome healthy products that my readers could use safely, and would produce beautiful results once applied.
