As a former lawyer focusing on human rights law, Dominique Boseman is passionate about advocating for people to have access to things that make their lives better. This passion was no different when she discovered how difficult it was to find healthy and effective body care options for her eczema-prone and sensitive skin. It was hard to find products that alleviated her eczema symptoms that were also natural and plant-based.

Dominique turned her passion for helping people into a quest to create beauty products for women of all backgrounds and skin types that are plant-based and toxin-free while still being effective, luxurious and also sensible.
