What you wish you’d known before creating a website: SEO and how deeply it must be worked through in order to be found by anyone.
My brand has been a gradual evolution from the more casual, almost rustic look that was for a larger demographic to a more refined audience that seeks the products that feel less is more.
I use less packaging, but not at the expense of my products. I believe in transparency in my work so packaging is transparent or translucent. Natural ingredients are utilized as much as possible. My customers care about what goes onto their skin and hair and I’m fully cognizant and respectful of that preference.
My brand & by extension my products are a reflection of my respect for my customers’ healthy lifestyle, their belief that natural products are safer and better and that our price point reflects that expectation of quality.
