I founded my boutique, ORGÁNACHS Farm to Skin, in Westport just over a year ago because I felt women in Fairfield County needed a healthier alternative to stay beautiful. My goal was to offer the most effective and luxurious organic brands that have never been available in Connecticut until now. I believe that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. If people strive to stay healthy, then why wouldn’t they want to use healthy, toxin-free products on our skin, which is our largest organ, as only takes 26 seconds for chemicals applied to the skin to reach your bloodstream. After spending over 14 years in the conventional beauty industry as a cosmetic executive, I became very educated on the amount of toxins allowed in the personal care industry and how little regulation there is from the FDA. I was appalled at how consumers are not made aware of how toxic ingredients are formulated in their products due to the lack of regulation and labeling laws in the U.S., as compared to Europe.
As I began to investigate the alternatives to conventional beauty, I discovered an abundance of high performing, result-driven, impeccably sourced ingredients formulated by companies that are authentic and have a passion for sustainability. These organic and natural brands provide the results that women want to achieve with their skin; nourished, hydrated, toned, rejuvenated and luminous. I have carefully curated an assortment of over 25 award winning and beauty editor’s top picks in organic and natural skincare, makeup, bath/body and hair care brands, now available online at www.organachsfarmtoskin.com ORGANACHS is launching Moon Dusts from MOON JUICE.
