HERE'S OUR STORY
Growing up in So Cal in the 70’s and 80’s we’re the best! Life was much simpler then. Skateboarding, roller-skating, playing Pac-Man & Centipede at the local Arcade in Westwood Village to Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, Santa Monica Beach, Camp Beverly Hills, Fiorucci, TV Dinners, Star Wars and Charlies Angels, need I say more, life was fun!
We’d hang out with friends till dark till mom would finally call us in for dinner. Although we were active as kids, we weren’t always eating so healthy. Coca Cola and Snickers were my go to when I was hungry. I was a pretty un-healthy skinny kid.
Now let’s fast forward …In my mid 30’s a friend invited me to Thailand where we'd do a cleanse. I’ll I heard was vacation and I was in! With no idea what I was getting myself into, I took on the challenge. After that experience I started to pay attention to what I was putting in my body, realizing that food can make a difference on my energy levels, moods and of course my health.
It still took another 10 years till I started eating healthy on a daily basis. But when I did, I never felt so good! Reading anything I could find on eating healthy. Once I had a handle on what to eat, I became a label junkie, reading food labels trying to figure out exactly what was going into our foods.
The next big concern...what was in the skincare I was using? After tons of research, I was horrified to find, hormone disrupters, petroleum, alcohol, and cancer causing chemicals in store bought skincare that everyone uses daily. Everyday products we think are safe are actually harming us.
I started researching natural food grade ingredients like Cacao Butter, Bee Friendly Honey, Jojoba Oil and therapeutic essential oils to use as my skincare and the benefits they had on our skin. The more I read the more I learned the benefits of using all-natural products.
As I started experimenting making facial scrubs, moisturizers and serums for myself, friends & family, my acne started clearing up, sunspots were fading and my complexion never looked so good. My friends and family encouraged me to continue making my products and to start selling them so others could enjoy and benefit from them as well. Hence, Skin Food Organics USA was born!
As a mother of a beautiful daughter, Taylor I encourage you to take a look at what you’re putting on your skin and in your body. We’d all like to be around for our great grandkids and for our children and loved ones to live a long healthy life. I hope you enjoy using Skin Food Organics USA All Natural Skincare as much as we enjoy making healthy Food For Your Skin!
Eat Well, Stay Positive and Feed your Skin with Healthy Ingredients!
