They will also tell you, you should have a business degree before you start your own business. I didn't let my lack of formal education or age hinder me. Age is just a number, right?
Perhaps you're like me, fair-skinned, Scottish-Irish descent, or have sensitive, delicate skin. As you've gotten a little older, even high end cosmetics cause you to have allergic reactions.
Parisian’s Pure Indulgence was born out of concern about what's in the treatments we all put on our skin.
Do you ever wonder, as I do, what are all these unpronounceable ingredients in big brand cosmetics? Why do we need them and why do we have allergic reactions to some products?
The beginning of something beautiful
After many years in the beauty industry, it was the realization that creating and using pure, safe, and effective products on my salon clients, products that wouldn't cause allergic reactions, had the potential to set me apart from the competition. Especially if my clients loved them!
This lead me into extensive studies of botanicals and the formulation of our first product, the Sugared Butter Whip Body Polish. I had a few "fails" as I attempted to whip up the sugar scrub in my Kitchen Aid mixer, but finally, success! I couldn't wait to try it on my clients.
It was their encouragement, my wonderful salon clients, that spurred me on to create the entire Parisian's Pure Indulgence Skin Care line.
Today, as Parisian's Pure Indulgence continues to grow, we have most of our treatments manufactured for us in a Certified Organic Facility (in the US...of course), according to my specifications. Each of our products has been developed with your wellness and perfect-aging in mind.
In 2018, my woman-owned company, won the "Clean Beauty Awards" for our Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel beating out competition from around the world.
The Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel has also been verified with the EWG (Environmental Working Group). This verification means we have met or exceeded their criteria for clean product ingredients.
After all, age is just a number
At age 63, and as a lifelong learner, my next challenge was to embark on an aromatherapy certification program. Today, I'm proud to announce, I'm a Certified Aromatherapist!
It's extremely gratifying to have completed the certification program that allows me to achieve a new business goal--developing and custom blending face oils just for you.
Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and the health of your skin is my #1 priority.
While the Your Own Custom Blend face oil has been a perfect addition to our line, you'll also want to take a peek at our wellness supporting essential oil blends too. Blends such as Focus and Energy, Immunity, and our very popular, Calm.
And remember...don't let your age stop you from following your dreams!
To your timeless beauty,
Founder, Parisian's Pure Indulgence, Inc.
