Welcome to episode 2 of the Household Hemp Podcast! Today’s guest is Kayla Fiorvanti-- one of the co-founders of Ology Essentials, a research-driven brand of luxury skin care products made with high-quality hemp-derived CBD. Kayla has launched a natural personal care business once before and grew it from a $50 investment in her home kitchen into a large company that sold for millions. Ology is her newest endeavor. As she points out in our interview, the word “ology” means “a subject of study” or “a branch of knowledge”--and Kayla certainly proves to be knowledgeable about the ingredients and formulas she’s created for her skincare products. She has over 20 years of experience in the essential oil and aromatherapy fields and has researched hemp extensively. She’s the author of several books, including “The Art, Science and Business of Aromatherapy” and is currently writing books about hemp as well.
In this episode, we discuss:
- The synergy between hemp and aromatherapy
-The difference between Ology’s Blot Line and its Mature Line
-What goes into formulating a skincare product that makes your skin healthy on its own, as opposed to the norm where products actually make your skin dependent on their products
-The emulsifying process, and the process behind the checks-and-balances such as making a product organic, getting third-party tested, and the value Kayla places on third-party associations for certifications, and the hemp industry’s surprising lack of this at the moment.
-How mothers, as consumers, are the driving force behind reshaping the market’s view of hemp, and separating it from its sister plant’s stigma.
I really think you are going to love this interview. I know I left this phone call just absolutely buzzing from the information!
