EP #1183: The Benefits of Using Fruits & Vegetables in Skincare with Joann Zehenni
Manage episode 360341496 series 1217538
In 2012, I learned that my dad and older sister were diagnosed with Lupus, an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues. I was surprised when I discovered that I have a borderline case of Lupus myself. One of the most common symptoms is the facial “butterfly rash” and extremely sensitive skin. Combating sensitive skin was an issue for all of us. Especially growing up in sunny southern California where I was always swimming and playing outside, leaving my skin dry and sunburned regularly. After years of trying different sunblocks and moisturizers, my skin remained irritated and red. Learning how to navigate which products to use was difficult until my grandmother began to create her own homemade, fruit and vegetable-based face masks that I would use after spending time in the the sun. She would find ingredients in her garden such as strawberries and cucumbers to craft soothing and moisturizing facial treatments. My family’s struggles with sensitive skin, as well as my grandmother's natural approach in using fruits and vegetables in skincare, served as a catalyst to pursue my dream of starting a skincare company. My goal is to provide a range of products that are accessible to a variety of skin types, with a particular focus on sensitivity, in hopes all find confidence and comfort in their skin. After many years of research and development under the advisement from multiple chemists in the cosmetics industry, I am so excited for you all to try my products!
