BLKGRN: Anything else coming soon?

BLKGRN: Why do you do what you do?
RONNI: I am a licensed cosmetologist, certified makeup artist, and skin care enthusiast. I am also the owner and formulator of a luxury bath & beauty company. We make pretty products with a purpose.
BLKGRN: What was your "Aha Moment" and when did your vision start to manifest?
RONNI: I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder and was told to discontinue using all fragranced products. At the time I was working for a private label fragrance company in their product development department and got a chance to see how formulas were made and put together. I noticed that a lot of these products had really harsh ingredients in them. Having an auto-immune disorder, I became really ingredient conscious. I started researching everything. My research eventually led to me making my first bar of soap, and that just snowballed into other products. I started giving away the products, and before I knew it, I had a business.
BLKGRN: How is your brand green? Why was this important to you?
RONNI: All of our products are made without synthetic fragrance, dyes, parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, alcohol, sulfates, phthalates, and artificial preservatives, and packaged in reusable glass bottles.
BLKGRN: What need do you currently see being unmet that you address?
RONNI: Creating products that are great for your skin, but that also looks just as great on your vanity.
