Who Creates Our Natural Body Care Products?

I’m happy to introduce our skincare formulator and manufacturer, Kevin Parker. Even though he’s my husband, it’s been so much fun working with him to create my natural body care products. I help with formulas and production but Kevin has been formulating personal care products for most of his career. He knows the science, regulations, packaging options, and ingredient suppliers. Phew! He’s really been there to help me implement my vision.

What’s he like? He’s the athletic one in the family. A natural athlete, he moved from rugby to compete in triathlons. He started with short sprint races and gradually moved up to the Ironman level. Wow. I love to go out and support him at the shorter races BUT I’ve had breakfast, lunch, and dinner while he’s still doing an all-day Ironman race!

Kevin is a great dad to two beautiful daughters who both tower over me. What can I say? It’s a tall family! And they are ALL athletic. Where they have the natural ability, I have sheer will. Hah!

He’s also really fun and we have a great time together. A sense of humor is a big part of how we live. There is also a huge amount of mutual respect. I wouldn’t want to be on this journey with anyone else. Thank you Kevin!

What else do you want to know about Kevin?

Don’t be fooled by the statement “all natural”

Many brands have been suspected of “greenwashing”. Since it’s becoming more important for many consumers to choose products that are healthy, brands have become clever in their marketing.

There is no official definition of “natural” skincare so be careful of these claims. Remember, the label reveals the true ingredients so always review the label. Ingredients are listed in descending order of concentration.

I used to be focused on the facts: black and white. Then after my corporate career, I discovered lots of other beautiful colors. The yellow that peace of mind can bring. The orange of relaxed confidence. All brought out through a commitment to self-care.  

I really wanted to help other women get excited about self-care by treating their bodies with respect. It needed to be something you could see AND feel. There were more colors out there for everyone to explore. You could close your eyes, smell and touch something beautiful. A guilt-free way to feel good about yourself. It was so simple and I knew everyone could do it!
