What is your background and how did you get into skincare?
I grew up surrounded by a family of organic farmers and a Dad who practices integrative medicine. The benefits of living in harmony with nature, using ancient healing techniques and natural remedies were incredibly prevalent. It was actually during a work project in 2008 when as a result of the research I was doing, became concerned about the volume of chemicals we are exposed to at home, that catapulted me to create the METTA range.
It is what makes the most sense to me. I see how well we thrive on a natural unprocessed diet, clean and fresh air and water, and truly relaxing. Why make it harder for our immune systems to process everything by using products laden with harsh chemicals?
Why do you do this?
I want to create a business focused on kindness and doing right by all - customers, suppliers and the planet.
What is your favourite Metta product and why?
The Metta Face Balm. I get so many messages telling me how it is improving customers skin when they use it and I’m so grateful to have one of my products make such a difference in people’s lives.
What is your favourite ingredient and why?
Each one plays a specific role in each product and works with the others in each product. It’s seeing them work together to deliver maximum benefit to the skin that I love.
