Why I Do This
Thanks for taking the time to stop by our beautiful website and for reading my blog. I am often asked what made me decide to create a line of organic skin care products. Well there is a little humor in this story so please feel free to laugh at any time.
I used to have very dry skin, as in desert dry skin, as in so dry that when I went to sleep I used to leave a dry flakey outline of myself, like the ones found at a crime scene, on the sheets which are black, making it even worse. My skin was so dry that I could shake the flakes out of my socks. Yep I would say that was pretty dry and I can't tell you how much money I wasted on this lotion and that cream all promising to give my thirsty skin much needed moisture. I tried name brands, off brands, prescription brands and within a couple of hours my skin was once again very dry and very thirsty. That was when I started to seriously read the labels.
The first thing I noticed was that the first ingredient was almost always water! The same water I took a shower in and made my skin dry. Then followed the cetyl alcohol and the rest of the stuff! It wasn't long before I realized that all the lotions and creams and such were just enhanced water-enhanced with some pretty unhealthy things too. Small wonder they didn't work!
I started to do a lot of research and the results were amazing, so I decided right then and there to use my knowledge of aromatherapy, cooking and some newly acquired information and the Simply Emy brand was born. Never one to be selfish, I decided to share it with anyone and everyone interested in making their skin healthy without the use of a lot of stuff in the products. Remember our skin is the largest organ in our body and we should treat it well!
