My grandmother would host spa parties in her house every weekend and invite all of these women to come try her hair mask or body scrub
from a conversation with Tata Harper
“I grew up in portside Barranquilla, Colombia, surrounded by Latin Culture, immersed in a household of women that loved beauty – we’re a total of 35 cousins and 20 of those are women – so there was a dedication to self-care. My grandmother would host spa parties in her house every weekend and invite all of these women to come try her hair mask or body scrub – I looked forward to waking up and helping her prepare these treatments that had been passed down for generations.
Now I live in New Canaan, CT, about 40 minutes from New York City, and our company facilities are on our farm in rural Vermont. I draw energy from spending time with my kids and self-care. Because I travel so much, it’s really important to me that my time at home is restorative. I always make sure to take time for myself, whether it’s a bath after a long day or meditation in the morning. This makes me the best version of myself to conquer the rest! Yes, it can be crazy but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love what I do. I love traveling and have lived in so many different places, including Paris, Mexico, Canada, Miami, New York, Vermont, and now Connecticut.A lot of people don’t know that my background is in industrial engineering. This really informed my process as I was building my skincare line. Women around the world inspire me and the products I create.
Every time I speak to our clients and hear how beautiful our products make them look and feel, how happy they are when they put on amazing-smelling essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances, I feel so motivated. We are committed to creating luxury products that are great for your skin and the planet. We source only the highest quality ingredients and the most innovative natural technology available, and include as many as we can in every formula to make our products as effective as possible. We are also completely vertically integrated, so we formulate, batch, fill, and ship all of our products from our farm in Vermont. We grow some of our ingredients on the farm organically, and source the rest from around the world.
As the founder and co-CEO, I am involved in pretty much everything that goes on! I work with our in-house team on every step of the process, from conceptualization to formulation to packaging, to create all of our products. As a company, we are a bi-product of the wellness movement happening worldwide. We are pioneers of this movement and 100% natural, non-toxic and non-artificial is nonnegotiable for us. I want to continue innovating and making the best skincare products for uncompromising women around the world. We are the next generation of beauty. I think my stepfather’s journey with cancer was a very pivotal time in my life. I realised that our daily habits play such a major role in our health and well-being, including the products we use in our homes and on our skin. It changed the way I approached toxic ingredients in my own life, and it was also the inspiration for starting my skincare line. As our clientele continues to educate themselves about new technologies and ingredients to avoid, we will continue to upgrade and evolve our products so we are always on the cutting edge. For us, it’s all about the innovation in the green technology space. New natural ingredients are being discovered all of the time and that continues to inspire us to engineer new formulas that incorporate as many of these new technologies as possible. We always want to be pushing the boundaries of what people think the limitations of green beauty are. There is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman, and having a proper self-care routine (both on the inside and outside) helps this. I feel most beautiful when my skin is super healthy and glowing — I hope this trend helps more women realize they don’t need to spend 30 mins hiding things with makeup, and instead use that time to make their skin healthier and do a more complete regimen.”
