What are you currently working on?

I always have new products, shades or scents. Right now the next products to launch are an Unscented Foaming Face Wash, a matte red lipstick and Lime Shimmer and Lilac Shimmer eye shadows. Since it’s the holidays, we also created several new gift items, including a little tea light candle in a Star of David made of soapstone which smells like chocolate. There are soy candles in Candy Cane, Apple Cinnamon and Evergreen. 

What steps have you taken to lead a green life style?

I do a lot of things to express my green lifestyle. One, of course, is promoting toxin-free cosmetics and skincare. Recently I spoke at the local Green Drinks chapter. I am a Vegetarian and have a CSA share in a local farm, where we go pick up fruits and vegetables weekly from the organic farmer. My home business is 100% wind powered. The clothes I wear are organic fabrics and non-leather, with much of my family’s wardrobe is from the Salvation Army store.
There are low flow toilets, non-toxic household cleaners and even bath tissue made of sugarcane fiber in the home office. All our bathrooms have small recycling bins. The studio was outfitted by Freecycle and we use recycled Mason jars, baby food jars and other glass to store raw materials.
