In the heart of the natural revolution in 2012 I began researching natural ingredients and developing natural products. At this time I had an epiphany that led to a shift. I began eating better, I chopped off all of my chemical filled hair, and I began reading the labels of everything that I put in my mouth. I was beginning a chemical free lifestyle. I was so proud to say I only ate natural and organic foods! I was in college and was way ahead of my time. If the label did not reveal nutrition facts or a complete list of ingredients, I did not eat it. Period.
At this time I was working at Walgreens in the cosmetic department. I had a very large linen closet in my bathroom that had no linens. Not a towel. Only cosmetics. Everything from lotions, to soaps, face creams and masks and scrubs... it was my favorite part of the bathroom! I remember a specific holiday season that my mom and sister came to town and went "shopping" in my 'linen' closet for their Christmas gifts. They each took about 5 items and there was still plenty left!
One day I decided to read the label of a moisturizer that was in this closet. Several things happened: 1. I could not pronounce and I did not know any of the ingredients besides water and glycerin. (And what in the world is Natural Fragrance?) 2. I found that some of the ingredients were linked to cancer/ disease/ infertility. 3. These ingredients were banned in other countries! 4. I was sick to my stomach. What did I do? I threw out my ENTIRE beauty 'linen' closet. I committed to only using products with non-toxic ingredients. This should be simple since I was already eating clean. I could not find natural products!!! I was thrilled once I found some, and then quickly disappointed. The scarce naturals did not work for me, still contained compromising hidden ingredients, and/or were just blah.
What do I do now? I made a decision. I knew that I could create beauty products that were pure, luxurious, aromatic and effective. I did not know where to start so I set out on a research and development journey that would take 5 years and thousand of experiments, mishaps, and just plain absolutely not’s. The research I found changed my life forever. I studied flowers and learned that they treat and heal skin issues instead of treating the symptoms. I studied oils and the methods of Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine. I went to the Bible and studied Esther's beauty treatment that prepared her for the king and instantly got her chosen. I studied FDA journals and scientific publications.
This compiled knowledge led to the creation of Bella Opulence, a bath and body collection made from organic flowers that heal and nourish the skin while delivering a luxury enjoyable spa experience in your bathroom each and every day. And here I present it to you.
Bella Opulence is infused with Organic Floral Herbs and 100% USDA Certified Organic Raw Unrefined Cold Pressed Coconut Oil.
