Indie Artistan and bath & body junkie, Greta, has respected clean beauty, before it was a thing. With beauty recipes handed down from her Native American great grandmother, Greta, started creating her own products at home.
"I began crafting beauty products as a way to avoid harmful chemicals in store bought brands. As it turned out, a friend of the family visited the house after I had made up a jar of my 'Southern Sweet Lemonade body scrub, and she encouraged me to go into business," She explains. There is not only a story behind Greta's brand, but each product has a story of its own, by giving a nod to various products sourced from around the world. "In the beginning, My passion for building my brand was huge, I was determined to add to the beauty recipes, left by my great grandmother. I was like a mad scientist sometimes waking up in the middle of the night with recipes floating around in my head, the kitchen was my lab. I kept experimenting and trying new formulations, while coming up with new and inventive names and combinations of ingredients. I craved a luxe line that had no harmful chemicals added, and I certainly was not going to test on animals! So, I became leaping Bunny and PETA certified and cruelty free. In time, a luxe product line was born. A New Jersey, native, she later relocated to Atlanta Georgia, where she started developing her brand. Soon, her neighbors started knocking on her door, some ordering by the gallon. Later, highly anticipated follow ups started to emerge, and quickly Greta's products became known as the clean beauty experience.'
What began in Greta's kitchen, is now available online and in two health food Stores. And two salons. Today, she is on the cusp of elevating her brand, and has plans of taking her products to the next level.
