Miriam Mabrey came to us through another amazing skincare maker we previously featured ... side note... that's one of the things we love about this community. Makers gotta make. They're 100% confident in their own products. Everyone truly understands that there's enough business to go around. They all walk that talk. It's supercool.
So yes, a wonderful partner suggested we meet Crunchy Beauty, which led us to the sweet and lovely Miriam. Miriam is a former science teacher and the alchemist and lady boss behind the skincare line called Crunchy Beauty. We love the science teacher meets hippy aesthetic of that. As with so many of our Makers, she began making products out of frustration with 'natural' products that were anything but natural and were too harsh for her boys' sensitive skin. She wanted something safe and effective for her family, so she made it. Her approach, as her past would dictate, is careful and methodical. The results speak for themselves. Crunchy Beauty Moisturizing Cream is an absolute game changer. We tested it as a facial moisturizer, a body balm, a hair tamer, a chapped lip healer - it's incredible! Crunchy Beauty Dry Skin Facial Moisturizer is the ONLY thing that calmed my son's eczema - and we've tried it all, including a reluctant, ineffective course of prescription steroid cream - yuck. Never again. Whatever Miriam is doing, the world needs her to keep doing it.
Crunchy Beauty's line of clean, truly natural products perform beautifully and never use synthetic ingredients, fillers or preservatives. They offer an unscented option for many of the products in the line, which is fantastic for people with skin or fragrance sensitivities. I happen to have a crazy sense of smell and I'm super allergic to roses, so I'm particular about the fragrances in my products and my home. I fell in love with Crunchy Beauty's light-handed fragrances - particularly the Lavender & Lemongrass that we chose for the April collection. It's clean, and springy, artfully blending the brightness of lemongrass with the soothing, calming properties of lavender. Genius. April Subscribers received a .5 oz jar of Lavender & Lemongrass Moisturizing Cream (MSRP: $12.00). Use code CAFOUNDAPRIL2018 for 10% off any Crunchy Beauty order AND free shipping! (Exp. 6/30/18).
