Sally B's Skin Yummies Q&A
Posted on September 27 2015
What prompted you to create your brand?
During a difficult recovery from cancer and a resulting diagnosis of Lymphedema in the 1990s, I began replacing the chemicals in my life with organic alternatives. The organic movement was in its infancy and organic skin care options weren’t readily available. Since I had experience making my own lotion bars for family Christmas gifts, I decided to pursue my hobby further using organic ingredients. In 2005 I had a Shea Butter Bar and Healing Hand Butter that my friends raved about and Sally B’s was born.
For a new customer trying out your brand, what would you suggest as their skin care routine?
We always start by recommending our Tamanu Luxury Facial Cleanser. We believe that clean skin is the foundation of any great routine and our gentle Tamanu Luxury Facial Cleanser works with and is beneficial for most skin types. Then we recommend using both a daytime and nighttime moisturizer, like our Antioxidant Daytime Serum and our Carrot Facial Dream Cream, and our Antioxidant Skin Boost. Antioxidants are extremely beneficial to skin health and our Boost is an easy way to incorporate these ingredients into your existing routine. Just mix a scoop of our powder Boost to your serum or night cream.
Which product are you obsessed with and why?
Talk with me long enough and you will find that I’m obsessed about all of our products. But my current favorite is our Peptide Booster Serum. It is a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that naturally boosts skin’s collagen and elastin production to slow down the signs of aging. It can be worn alone as a moisturizer or added to your existing moisturizer or night cream as a booster. It may be our newest product, but it’s already becoming a customer favorite.
What ingredients are definitely not added to any of your products?
We mean it when we say that our products are non-toxic. We never use petroleum-based ingredients, artificial fragrance, parabens, GMOs, animal-based ingredients. We do not formulate our makeup with bismuth, nano-particles, lead, or synthetic colors. We want our products to truly be healthy for both people and the planet.
What can we expect from your brand in the near future?
We are always researching new, organic ingredients, techniques, and information, so you can always expect beneficial tweaks of our existing products and informative blog posts from us. Currently in the kitchen, however, we have a lot of great things cooking. In early 2016 we’ll be releasing two new products and some exciting collections to make adopting an organic skin care routine almost foolproof.
What sets you apart from your competitors?
We are a transparent company. In the midst of an industry that is not required to disclose all ingredients or adhere to any labeling standards, we happily provide all of our ingredients and do not make vague marketing claims so that you can make the best decisions for your personal health. Plus, our products really, truly work!
