As a parts model, I’m often asked how I keep my skin camera-ready for macro closeup photography. My motto has remained the same for many years. One word: MOISTURIZER.
Every part of me is magnified under a high definition lens, so even my nails need to be well nourished. Ever notice how dry nails become brittle and break?
Early on, I realized I needed something fine enough for the face that would also treat my body parts with the same premium quality - an exceptional moisturizer that would deeply nourish my skin with the right ingredients to keep it healthy and hydrated from nose to toes.
I wanted a lotion with a lovely relationship to light so I got the glow, yet didn’t feel greasy or look shiny - a product that would penetrate without sitting on top of of the skin like other lotions, leaving paw prints on everything I touch.
I began creating lotion-potions in the kitchen, using essential oils and other natural ingredients I grew up with while raised on an organic farm in Northern California.
I fell in love with the homemade moisturizer and my friends began asking for more, so I teamed up with a top formulator and set out to spread the lotion love!
When I was a child, my dad owned one of the busiest restaurants in New Orleans. His philosophy for success: Exceptional quality at an affordable price.
I share this intention for Essentiel. My motivation for creating a unique multi-use moisturizer was to give people an experience of head-to-toe beauty from a product made with premium face-grade ingredients that’s reasonably priced.
When my dad lost his life to addiction, my desire to heal and do something positive for the planet grew very strong. No matter how painful the past, there’s always opportunity for growth and renewal.
NOLA Tree Project embodies this spirit of rebuilding in beautiful ways. Its diverse outreach and commitment to community has inspired me to move forward and reminded me that recovery happens over time and with love.
Part of the proceeds of every bottle of Essentiel Moisture helps plant seeds of hope.
