While I was busy building my career, I watched several friends and family members fight a battle
with cancer. I realized the importance of healthy living and decided that I wanted to make a
difference. In my research, I discovered that in Europe, over 1,800 chemicals have been regulated or banned in beauty products, while in the U.S., the FDA has only banned 11. I knew something had to change. Over a decade ago, I decided to create a paradigm shift in the industry and became a driving force behind the safe beauty movement.
I started a blog, published a few books, became a guest speaker at events around world-from Singapore to Turkey, co-hosted my own national radio show, appeared on national news and was even named one of the “20 to Know” by Global Cosmetics Industry. I found myself reaching more than 17 million people on a regular basis with my message.
