Hello, and thank you for visiting my page. The genesis of my skincare line was not planned. As is often in life, It was many things converging together for a greater good. I have an extensive background in skincare and cosmetic artistry. I am also essentially a naturalist and am passionate and involved with animals, our environment and staying as close to the source as possible with what mother nature has provided . I have been able to transition almost naturally and seamlessly concerning my diet, however, when I went to transition in my skincare it wasn't that simple. Having worked within this industry for as long as I did, I was able to educate myself in the science of skincare and fortunate to be able to try many different and varying products over the years. I know which ingredients are important in skincare and their capabilites. I dislike the term "anti-aging". I am pro aging, I just want to do it gracefully and holistically. So, while volunteering at Gilda's Club and helping women with cancer, I attended a medical conference regarding the importance of what we put on our skin and it's ramifications. I was shocked. I never knew about nail polish and how it's absorbed through the porous nail bed. I never knew about the potential for disease or fertility issues. As I delved deeper I decided to search for skincare that had the ingredients that I wanted for myself, without all of the toxins and chemical preservatives. And I couldn't find anything. Nothing. So, I took everything that I knew that worked, and left out all of the unnecessary evils and I created a skincare line for myself ! And then my friends. And then their friends. And that is how Uplift Organics came to be. I am so proud of this line and I hope that you will try it and love it too.
