I have the pleasure to introduce you to a lovely woman whom creates beautiful handmade, vegan and all-natural skin care products, her name is Cassandra, owner and maker of BFree Organics Handmade Skin Care Line. Cassandra and I crossed path via a social media (Instagram), and boy, was I glad I did! I absolutely love supporting small businesses and young entrepreneurs! I mean, why go commercial when you can go local and support a compassionate go-getter?
Cassandra makes loving your skin easy. She handcrafts her products with her soul and compassion, her line is also 100% Vegan and Organic. I was never one to pamper my skin as I probably should be but now, all of it has changed. Cassandra was kind enough to ask me to review a few of her products from BFree Organics which I cannot wait to share with you! My review will be shared and published on Vegan Beauty Review this week, thanks Sunny! Be on the lookout for it, I think one of you may have the chance to win a few products! ;) So, because I love my TPLies, I was kindly able to steal a little bit of time away from Cassandra and had the pleasure to ask her a few questions! Yay!! Let’s begin, shall we?
TPL: Who is BFree Organics?
CBFO: BFree Organics is compassion to all striving to make our world a better place. It is gratitude, simplicity and loving the natural you.
TPL: After accomplishing your remedy for your son’s eczema problem, what motivated you to push it as a product?
CBFO: I actually had a skin care line before BFree Organics. I was a stay at home mom, wanting to do something from home, so I could continue to raise my two young boys. A friend and I started a line of scrubs, using raw fruits and veggies, mixed with sea salts. Our company was really more of a hobby and lasted a little under a year. Now when I look back, I realized how far I’ve come in the last five years with all the knowledge I have gained since. That company was really just the beginning of what my calling was supposed to be. I decided enroll to school for esthetics (skin care) and that’s really where I pushed myself to not to give up and I went for it 100%. The girls in school would let me test my concoctions on their pretty faces and I started healing some of the ladies adult acne with my customized facial treatments. I knew I had something, so I started studying herbalism & created my business name.
- TPL: What is your favourite essentials oil to use?
CBFO: I love, love, and love geranium, tea tree, rosemary, & lemongrass essential oils. These essential oils all have long lists of healing properties, and are great for most skin types.
- TPL: What influenced the scent in your products?
CBFO: Ah! Scent is my everything! If it smells clean & and straight to the point, I am there. I wanted the scent of BFree to really connect with the simplicity of mother earth using plant ingredients straight from the source.
- TPL: Who is BFree Organics target market?
CBFO: I designed BFree to be compatible for all ethnicities. I really want BFree to be for conscious minded men and women. For people who have become awake, by realizing all the chemicals that are being used in our skin care/home care/ & food industry. A population that recycles, grows their own food, have compassion, understand the importance of small business, redefining America & what the little people stand for.
- TPL: Which is your favourite product and why?
CBFO: My favourite product is Daily Moisturizer. It’s a light weight moisturizer with SPF 20 (naturally derived from the Shea) I can’t live without it because keeps my skin silky smooth, bright, and supple. It also smells heavenly thanks to the Neroli and Pink grapefruit essential oils.
- TPL: What can we expect from BFree Organics in the future?
CBFO: I would like to have my own botanical garden and grow all of my own ingredients. More products for home care, for children, and pets. This is a vision I am continuously building on, day by day. I am really just going with the flow of life, with hopes of following my right path.- TPL.
