Skin Minimalism, The Science of Skincare Ingredients, and Debunking Clean Beauty "Skin Health" with Vegan Skincare Line Rain Organica Founder - Brandy Searcy All The Things

    • Personal Journals

In this episode, Sofia was able to chat with formulation and skincare expert Brandy Searcy. Brandy is a terrific resource for understanding what ingredients help, and which ones hurt your skin, and you can bet Sofia asked her all about it! They get into Brandy's own skin journey, how she had to be an advocate for herself and found holistic approaches, and how that lead her to create her own vegan, and sustainable skincare line!   

About Brandy:
Brandy's a formulation scientist and self-proclaimed health geek who loves hiking, gardening, bird-watching, and bodyboarding. 
Her struggle with acne during her teens and 20s led to a holistic and healthy approach to skincare, embracing skin as an organ to be loved and cared for rather than a canvas to wage war on. 
Since 2008, she's been developing all-in-one products for a simple routine at home, & the idea for Rain Organica really took shape when her backpacking friends asked for a portable skincare routine to keep their skin healthy & happy on and off the trails.  You can simplify your routine at home and while traveling with Rain Organica’s simple & sustainable skincare.
