I created Normal Beauty when I realized award-winning natural products were still not good enough. The organic creams were too greasy or stiff; the natural foundations gave dismal coverage and never came close to matching my olive skin.
I had raised my standards regarding the foods I ate, but what about what I put on my skin? I noticed the beauty brands at the health food store were labeled organic but still used cheap inflammatory oils—oils the foodie community warned me to stay away from.
Over the past 5 years, I've worked on healing my epilepsy, and without being able to drive here and there at will, have had the luxury of time to tap into a creative space I never knew I had. I asked specialists for guidance on the most potent healing ingredients, and I asked myself and my community the important questions—What do the people need? What would they love?
I found forgotten sacred oils that were powerhouses for healing skin. I used ingredients based on their attributes, not on the price of bulk production. I kept testing and creating until I found the best coverage in an oil-free mineral foundation, then made shade after shade until I was sure everyone had a color that matched their skin perfectly. Finally, now that I am overcoming my epilepsy and the formulas are finished, this underground sensation will be available to everyone!
