Tell us about yourself – family background, personal story, education, and previous professional capacities.
I come from a hairdressing background, so I have dived deep into the chemical world, and witnessed the side effects first hand! Day after day, with my hands coated in chemicals, and fumes chocking me, and my clients- well, my conscious just kept at me- to walk another path.
Fascinated by products and beauty, I began to unearth just how toxic these industries really are! From a young age, I had always had a keen interest in natural chemistry, so I began to follow this interest, and learnt how to create my own skin care. Combining my Naturopathy studies and my diploma in Spiritual Healing, I took a leap of faith into the unknown, and here I am- a director of my own natural skin care company, helping to support, educate and contribute to a better world- an eco-world!
What is the importance of ethical fashion to you?
Knowing that the clothes on my back have come from a source where people have been treated like humans, and paid well for their work, is what contributes to a fair world. I want to be part of that!
What is the importance of sustainable fashion to you?
Knowing that our clothes come from environmentally responsible resources, that respect the earth and its people, is the fashion I’m proud to wear!
The strive for Sustainability and Humanity, is constant conscious work.
I long for the day, when it will be legal, to provide my skin care range- from within Hemp Plastic! All things, Eco, Natural, Healthy, Sustainable and Conscious- are just common sense.
Chemicals are hidden within so much of what we use, consume and apply-daily. Teaming up with other companies that are for an Eco World-is what I live for, together we are stronger, together we can make a difference!
What was the inspiration for earth skin & eden – and its title?
I have been making my own skin care on & off for about a decade now. My concern about the petrochemicals within mainstream skin care is what lead to the creation of earth skin & eden. We source certified organic & superior natural derivatives to create our unique body products.
Our name is symbolic; it represents our purposeful meaning behind our natural skin care company.
Earth-gratitude for life, respecting all inhabitants & elements of the Earth.
Skin- respect for the health of humanity, providing organic & natural skincare, with a holistic foundation.
Eden- love for all that is natural, using sustainable sources from earths garden to nurture & repair your skin.
What makes earth skin & eden unique?
We have created a no foam Body Cleansing Crème that is naturally ecological! It is designed to not only gently cleanse & nurture your skin with pure naturals, but also teaches the user how to simply save water!
Our goal is Water-conservation; our focus is Natural Beauty.
What other work are you involved in at this point in time?
I’m a busy mum of 3 teenagers, so balance is crucial. I love to write and share what I know.
I love to help folk to awaken to a eco way of life, for the sake of their own health & well-being, and those who they are responsible for. I also brainstorm my formula’s to come…
What meaning or personal fulfillment does this work bring for you?
Every day, I wake energized, because I know I am doing what I was meant to do! Helping to educate people about the dangers of hidden chemicals within skin care. By encouraging others to look at what they can do in their own lives, to contribute to better health and well-being is what makes me smile.
With regard to organizations/companies, and so on, like Trusted Clothes and earth skin & eden, what’s the importance of them to you?
Conscious Living contains the power to wake the people of the World!
The more we can support each other in our quests to leave behind a world that teaches our generations to come, how to ‘right the wrongs’ is a World that brings hope, health, shared wealth and happiness.
Any feelings or thoughts in conclusion?
Thanks for the opportunity to share a little about me and my skin care company!
Thank you for your time, Davina.
