I first became interested in what we put into our skin in 2015 when I lived off grid in the middle of the Tasmanian bush and realised that skin products available to us in the shops just did not work. I started to make my own because, if most of what we put on our skin is absorbed, it's best to keep it natural and organic, and that will help to keep us healthy too. Beautiful skin equals a healthy life.
Into Your Skin was born then and now I make my handcrafted skincare products here in Strahan, on the West Coast of Tasmania. I only blend in small batches so everything is fresh and my labels and business cards are either made by me from recycled paper or made by a company that are environmentally responsible using recycled paper, solar power, benign press chemicals and nontoxic/vegie inks.
In late 2019 I opened Bonnet & Entrance Eco Store, a small tourist shop on Reid Street in Strahan supporting local makers and artists, ecofriendly and natural with sustainable wares made only in Australia.
In May 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we decided to bring them both together, and this is now, my story.
