The oils and lotions her father had been bringing home since she was a child were the perfect beginning to what was to become a skin care line for babies and moms. It was then that Susan started working at a baby boutique to familiarize herself with the baby market. As she had expected, while the boutique was quite successful in clothing and knick-knack sales, it was lacking in the skincare offerings. There were very few baby skin care lines that were beautifully-packaged and efficacious.
With the information she gathered, Susan approached her former college roommate, Kimmy Hollar, with the goal to create a natural line of baby and mom skincare products that would be both effective and natural, perfect for sensitive skin.
Kimmy holds a degree in elementary education from the University of Arizona. A former first grade school teacher, camp counselor and nanny she is has first-hand experience in how children react to various lotions and creams. From rashes on elbows and knees, to breakouts from disposable diapers, Kimmy has seen it all.
As a child Kimmy suffered her own skin ailments. She started seeing a skin specialist for eczema. After being prescribed "special salve," chemically-made with an unpleasant smell, Kimmy's mom searched for a natural alternative - but nothing was available. From those early days Kimmy has been interested in natural and effective skin care and looks forward to educating the public on safe skin care.
