How did you get started in the beauty industry?
Watch the video above!
I will add that it was in 2012 I discovered the widespread use of toxins in beauty products and started to test natural and organic brands. The more I researched the clearer it became how confusing and time consuming it is to find natural brands and organic brands that match a modern lifestyle. In response I created VANZEE -means from the sea- to give honest advice on clean beauty that works.
Growing up amongst farmers I experienced first hand the widespread use of fertilisers and pesticides.
Aware that we live in a chemical age, I think it is essential to reduce our toxic exposure and empower ourselves by buying what nurtures us naturally.
To me, it makes sense that our health, and that of the planet, is served better by organic produce grown as nature intended.
What role does the Soil Association play for you?
For me it's a safe place, as I know that each product will have passed strict criteria that guarantees an authentic natural product.
What’s next for you?
